Reviewed August 25, 2018

One of the best Chinese buffets in the tri state area. We have eaten here often. The extensive buffet is fresh and kept well stocked no matter what time of day you visit. The sushi is awesome! No wonder they always get rated the number one restaurant for sushi in the annual newspaper poll. The sushi is made fresh in front of you. Many varieties, my husband loves the eel crunch sushi, but there are veggie, salmon, tuna, crab and shrimp sushi also. They offer a hibachi grill where you grab a plate and pile on rice noodles or lo mein noodles, fresh veggies, an amazing array of meats - chicken, NY strip steak, squid, shrimp, pork and the mandatory (or not) fresh egg, and pick your spice level. Dinner offers additional items such as oysters on the half shell. Their entrees are really good too; the coconut shrimp, sesame chicken, broccoli & beef, Korean chicken, buttered crab just to name a few. Also a variety of veggies. Pot stickers with gravy, sweet & sour chicken, egg rolls, deep fried zucchini, and much more. Also available is a salad bar, soups and a dessert bar with the freshest fruits, cakes and puddings, even ice cream cups! They offer take out service, buffet food is charged by the pound, sushi is priced per piece. They offer senior citizen & kid's discounts and a special after 9 pm. The restaurant is always neat and clean, comfortable atmosphere and the servers are excellent!

Smorgasbord that is quite diversified but was not kept well stocked. Food was just average. It was relatively clean. There was sushi but sushi on a buffet scares me since I don't know how often changed out or if kept proper temp.

A very extensive buffet with a sushi bar. An always changing menu and always hot any time of day or evening. It has a grill where a chef will prepare the ingredients you select from a short bar, a nice touch. We've eaten there many times. You can load a plate to go which they weigh and sell by the pound. Very clean and a bargain for the amount and quality of food.

I have to say my favorites are the buttered crab and Korean chicken. To my knowledge, this is the only area buffet to offer both a hibachi grill and fresh sushi. The service is excellent, and the food is amazing

One always worries about the likelihood you will enjoy a buffet, especially a buffet away from home. But no worries here. So many options and such friendly staff. Excellent food
