Until stepping inside I didn't realize the innumerable buffet options and size of this excellent Asian buffet restaurant at Northgate. Manager George sat us at a booth when it was available. I thoroughly enjoyed the fresh white fish, teriyaki chicken, sushi, green beans, salad. I chose food from most areas: Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc. The Korean kalbi beef was so... More

Come here often when I visit Seattle. If you like Asian food you will love this buffet and the myriad of options to choose from. Food is always fresh and plentiful. Wish their senior discount was a little better on weekends - we don't eat a lot so it is hard to get your money's worth at the higher weekend... More

Best value in seattle buffets period. Good selection of rolls. Plentiful selection of non sushi items.

Plenty of seafood, sushi, and desert options; if you consider yourself to be a sushi connoisseur, then this probably will not be the place for you. However, if you just want some decent seafood and a variety of selections, then this place will fit that bill.

Sushi , Korean, chinese, seafood selection not bad. Sweet and sour soup too sour :( Service was ok. Nothing extraordinary about the deserts served: the usual sweets and not too many options for fresh fruit.

My family and I have been frequenting this place for a while. The service is good and the food is pretty decent if you set expectations appropriately. The sushi is quite decent but doesn't match 'fine dining' quality however for the price, the value you're getting is pretty good.

Ok I have eaten buffet style buffet restaurant in US before and I can say there are places we could get buffet style sushi for cheaper price than this. We paid almost $20 for lunch buffet which I think pricey for what we got. However, there was good selection of sushis and deserts. Seafood hot food selection could be better... More

Came here for the first time and the selection of sushi, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, seafood, salad bar, fruits, dessert, and soft serve ice cream was more than we expected for a buffet. My husband even said, "it's the best one in the area so far". The service did not disappoint either for a buffet type setting. Our table was always... More

This restaurant is one of the best buffet in the west coast. Oriental food at very high standards, if you love sushi , this is your place. The location is outside the city center, however there are a lot of advantages , such is free parking and next to a very nice shopping mall. Dont miss it.

The food was very good and the staff was very polite. It was a mix of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean seafood which is not what we usually eat so it was a new experience for us. There is a nice variety but some of the foods were running low and no one bothered to fill up the dishes again. The... More
