Umeko used to be a very good buffet they had lobster, amazing sea bass, whole scallops I could go on and on. This is not that Umeko. Only one steam table had food on it and I stood there hoping to fine something that looked...More

Truly an unbelievable dining experience! I was greeted at the entrance with a cloudy fish tank and some mumbling that I think meant "follow me". The table had no napkin or silverware, but I was greeted by a smiling young lady who asked "drink"? I...More

Not very many choices for a buffet. A better buffet is No 1 buffet on Stockton. I do not know what is the different of price to get to eat there. I'm not a picky person but I like choices. This buffet doesn't have a...More

Food was not fresh. Plates were dirty. When my wife and I walked in there was a smell of soiled old carpet. I think the atmosphere would be better if they removed the carpet and cleaned the floors. The workers came out of the bathroom...More

We love it. My 2-year-old picks what he likes off our plates and the wait staff don't mind the mess he makes. The food is delicious. They have steamed green beans that are the envy of all green beans. Seriously, they are unbelievably tasty. The...More

The food is cold and disgusting! I kept trying different entrees to see if there was hope in the rest but unfortunately it got worse! The food was never seasoned well. Their broccoli beef tasted like sea water and the desserts had enough sugar to...More
