Many many dishes to choose from including some very American dishes that kids will love. A bit pricy but I guess that is the price you pay for unlimited crab and sushi.

When this place opened lunch was great. Now so much of the sushi that should have crab is just imitation crab meat. Seems like more rolls have this as well. It's cheap so that would make sense. Lunch sushi isn't the same as it once was.

Enjoyed very fresh and delicious Sushi, long buffet-bar. Great crab legs, all the other buffet choices generous and top quality. Service attentive and friendly. Even when place was busy, not too busy to get to the food, and amply stocked.

The buffet would be fine, but I don't eat crab legs or sushi, but the cost of those items are included in the buffet price, which would be a good price if I ate those items too. They need to have one cost for everything and one cost for people just looking for chicken and noodles, and soup.

My wife and I went here for dinner we were looking forward to a good meal. Most of the food we got was barely warm. I mentioned it to our waitress and she didn't seem too concerned about it. And it end up costing us over $ 40 for dinner and two drinks. The last time we went there was... More

I have a seafood and fish allgery.. this restaurant mix their seafood on every buffet table. even if a restaurant keeps it straight, putting things close together allows customers to use the same serving fork or spoon in the seadfood then into the other dishes.
