It's rare to have food piping hot from a buffet but steam was pouring from the bar when we walked in. Everything was cooked well and tons of choices! The sushi bar was impressive also I highly recommend!

DO NOT GO between 1-4 as the food is dry and been on the buffet a little long. During the lunch and dinner the food is good. The service is sporadic on checking back on you.

We noticed the sign on the way to The Hermitage. So after our visit to the Hermitage, we visited Koi Japanese restaurant for lunch. There were lots of food choices, the sushi was very good, and they made some sushi specifically requested by our group. If you're in the mood for sushi, give it a try.

Being "regulars", we know we won't be disappointed. Expect a "Five Star Restaurant", go to the Palm. Want to be totally comfortable? Koi is it. Some parents aren't attentive to their young children which can get annoying, but it is cool to see a 3 or 4 year old eating sushi or frog legs and not just their chicken nuggets... More

Before getting there, we did not know it was not a well maintained facility. They did serve ample amount of sushi variety, but the remaining items were quite average and not impressive. It is run by Chinese people and cooking staff were mostly Hispanic, so the quality of food would not be excellent and authentic. The dinner buffet on the... More

For a buffet, the sushi is surprisingly good. The hot foods are pretty good, too, but I go for the sushi. You can try different things without breaking the budget.

A definite "must not go"! The food was mediocre, at best and everything looked dirty. I was afraid to eat there.

We go here almost weekly. The food is good. Good sushi for a buffet. I always get sushi, noodles and soup. Service is good. Hope to check out dinner here soon too.
