We drove out of our way for 30 minutes to find that the Jumbo Buffet had nothing to offer, but 3 stations--- one of which was desserts and salad. They had a total of 23 dishes out. Even though the taste was good, the food was lukewarm at best. The sushi had been put out 5 hours without being changed.... More

Middle of the road, food wasn't terrible but it wasn't amazing either. The price was decent. Service was good.

Surprisingly good. Great value, too. Family owned, clean. The owner would make hibachi. Selection is on the smaller side, but food is tasty

Friendly workers and good food! Wide variety of food. Oysters and shrimp on the bar were good. Black pepper shrimp was fantastic! Also had lots of dessert options!

They have most oriental dishes you'd expect on the buffet plus susche, fruit, desserts. Very good value for the money. If you're hungry, you could eat yourself into oblivion.

My family ordered takeout. I got the Sesame chicken because on the menu it stated all white meat. The chicken turned out to be dark meat. Food was mediocre and disappointing although it was hot. I wasn't impressed by the service. The individual who took our order seemed to be in a big hurry. Felt rushed and overpaid since we... More

Jumbo buffet is fairly priced but the chicken was not cooked properly and had a chewy cold feel to it. I had to spit out some of the food I got. Now most other things were fine. The cold bar I wouldn't touch the food looked old and frankly looked disgusting to me. On a positive note the staff were... More

A smallish place yet still has many choices on the buffet which includes a dessert section with HAND-DIPPED ice cream. All the standard favorites are there along with a really good (although small) mongolian bbq - a grill for the fresh foods that you can choose, as much as you want, and they cook it in front of you. All... More

Please save your money and avoid. What a great day until we waisted our time and money kids got sick, later, so did the rest of the family. Had a bad experience in a restaurant like this ever! Nasty.health hazard! ! I'm surprised that it'should not in any lawsuit filed.
