We are regulars and the food was not the best this time. To our surprise they had Stone crabs but they were old. Also the crab legs they usually have were old as well. Overall the quality was not there this time. Hope the next time goes back to normal.

I am not expert on Asian foods, but like Chinese. This place is a mix of Japanese-Chinese-American cuisines.

I would say this is kind of an Asian version... More

This place is far and away the best oriental buffet that you will find in Florida. My wife and I have tried oriental buffet's in several states, and all over Florida. There must be fifty different varieties of sushi, and many other cold Japanese foods to choose from. There is a hot grill for your choice of Hibachi, and several... More

Can't wait to to go back! This is by far one of the best places to eat Chinese. The hibachi is amazing, the service is very good considering it's a buffet. Oh did I mention the fried heavenly tempura shrimp and vegetables. Dinner is pricier than lunch but well worth it if you love to eat.
