Great place if you like Asian food, Pizza and french Fries too. Family friendly, drinks and desserts included with all you can eat Buffet. Has declined some from when they first opened, changed some items and omitted some, but still lots to choose from. Our main complaint would be parents letting their kids under 10 get their own food and... More

We were on our way south on I-5, better said that we were sitting in traffic on a Friday evening. Pulled off to grab a bite. The restaurant is very clean, and empty plates are cleared quickly. I love sushi, counted about 20 varieties. There are 5 food stations, a sushi bar, a dessert bar, and a Mongolian grill in... More

The food was OK, but what we didn't like was that after paying 60+ dollars we were handed a little paper that said if you waste food or drink you will be charged another $10 a person and being that my husband is picky but likes to try different things was afraid to explore a little.

We spent nearly $60 for 4 of us (2 kids and 2 adults) to eat at this buffet. To be transparent, I am not a buffet lover. Most of the food they offered didn't look fresh. The salad bar consisted of huge chunks of romaine lettuce, some weird looking cabbage mix and no other vegetables. The Mongolian line didn't offer... More

My wife and I did not like the quality of the food at all. If your only concern is to stuff yourself with food, then go here, but quality is not good.

I consider myself an international. Let me say that there is no place in Pierce County Washington that is more international than this place. So many different languages can be heard, you would think you are in a foreign country! Sundays after church crowd loves this place - they come and line up to enjoy the food. It is difficult...

I've driven by this place a million times and never thought about checking it out - and then I did. As other reviewers have mentioned,it doesn't have the greatest ambience....but if you have food sensitivities, as I do, any buffet is better than a traditional restaurant, and this one is far, far better. If you like sushi, this is the... More

Food was OK, but certainly not memorable. Lots of choices. Average prices. Like all buffets, there is a great temptation to overeat. If you value quantity over quality, this is your place. If you are looking for great food, look somewhere else.

This used to be a good place to eat. Unfortunately, over the last 3 years the food quality has steadily gone down hill and the cleanliness of the restaurant has gone from bad to worse. First, the floor and tables in the restaurant need a good cleaning. The table where we were seated had a thin layer of grease covering... More
