“Wide Variety of Delicious Seafood and Sushi!”

Reviewed May 11, 2017

I don't normally eat at buffets, but I have eaten here twice and have had a wonderful experience both times. There are so many items offered, that I cannot speak of all of them, but what I had was excellent. Their sushi and ginger are fresh. The fried octopus was done just right, and octopus is difficult to prepare. Their scallops (served in the shells) were excellent, as were the variety of shrimp dishes served. The purple sweet potato dumplings were amazing! Marshmallows dipped in the chocolate fountain was a nice finale to the meal!

This buffet is nicely arranged with soup bars, sushi, seafood and meats,fruits and a grill. The restaurant was very clean. The food was displayed with good lighting and variety. There is so much to offer for varied tastes and diets. I found it to be a sensory experience . The miso ginger, shrimp and noodle soup was a good starter. The boiled shrimp, crab and lobster were fresh tasting and simply prepared. The coconut shrimp were addicting. For dessert, there were a wide array of fruits, chocolate fountain, pastries and frozen custard. This restaurant offers take out by the pound.

Chinese buffet with a good selection. Quite a bit of seafood like crab legs and shrimp. They also have a Mongolian bar and a sushi bar. If you're hungry this is a good place to go.

We went here for lunch. The selection was very good. There are lots of choices. They have a steam table filled with a variety of cooked dishes including dim sum; a good sized sushi bar- with sashimi; salad and fruit selections, a mongolian type stir fry area; and dessert - with soft serve ice cream.
With the variety there is something for everyone. I like the ability to pick and choose what you want to sample. There a lots of goodies.
There is plenty of seating - couples, families and larger groups.
