Was not impressed. If this is the best area buffet, then you haven't been to some really nice buffets. About the only thing open on Thanksgiving day and had to have something to eat. It was ok but for us not a repeater.

We were impressed by the number of choices spread out over four buffet bars here that included several sushi roll choices and hibachi cook-to-order. We visited before the start of their lunch crowd and found all of their food bars well-stocked, fresh and clean. I found the sushi to be better than buffet quality, but not exceptional. The Chinese choices... More

Lots of choices and plenty of food. There are many unusual foods that you would only try in a buffet setting. The sushi bar is fresh and constantly refilled. The price is fair and if you leave hungry it's on you. They have soup, salad, fruit, seafood and a variety of meats and sides. They have a hibachi grill for... More

Went for the lunch buffet. Had been here twice in over 2 years and usually go to the competitor down the road. Decided to try again after reading positive reviews. My guest and I were very impressed by the cleanliness & friendliness of the staff. The food was piping hot and the smaller steam pans were always refreshed. The sushi... More

We usually eat here when we are in the area. There is a wide selection of hot and cold foods as well as sushi, Mongolian grill, and pizza for those who don't care for Chinese/Japanese food. The staff is very courteous and the place is quite clean. The food is always hot and tasty and we plan on returning in... More

We went to Royal Buffet last week and again were not disappointed. The sushi was fresh and plentiful, clams on the 1/2 shell were ice cold and fresh, peel and eat shrimp were good but could have been a bit larger. The hot trays were always full and were quite tasty. Again, a nice meal and we will return.

The lure of seafood at a buffet may sound enticing... crab legs, clams, mussels... too bad the quality was atrocious. The fishy stench of the seafood items I tried was perfectly matched with their awful taste. I would have been more harsh with my rating, however the sushi was not bad (we requested a special roll, made to order). Also,... More
