We like to go here on the weekends when they serve more seafood. From oysters on the half shell, you peel and eat shrimp, to steamed clams, a good way to begin the meal. Also available are crab legs, stuffed clams, usually 2 kinds of fish, shrimp prepared three different ways, and of course sushi. Then you have a choice... More

It's your average buffet. Couldn't believe though the booth they sat us at the table top leaned and was wobbly. The service was ok. Not sure if we would return though

We went on a Friday night at 6:30. There was no wait. All of the food was hot and delicious. They have added a few different sushi rolls and I particularly love the ones with avocado or just the thinly sliced tuna and salmon. I sample a tad of just about everything. There are several chicken dishes (sesame, pepper, orange)... More

We've eaten here in the past with pretty good results, but this place has taken a major step backward. The entire buffet line is mediocre, with some very skimpy snow crab that looks like left-overs from days past. We didn't see one customer try them. The sushi was dry and tasteless and also looked re-cycled. The rest of the entrees... More

Friend recommended, and brought me here for dinner. Surprised by better than average food, large variety of dishes, continual replenishment of food, and enough seafood and vegetables to satisfy a non meat eater. The price was very reasonable.

Stopped for lunch with my Honey, great selection for the time of day, expect more for more when dining after 5. Food was replaced promptly, great picks for salads and dessert, and portioned ice cream in 8 flavours including green tea. Don't forget to clip the local paper coupon, for an extra discount.

Lucy took me to dinner at the " #1 Eastern Super Buffet " we had a coupon. I started with fresh oysters,which I'm not particularly fond of yet but I'm working on it. I followed it with seaweed salad, sushi rolls, seafood sushi and sashimi, red tuna, white tuna, mackerel and salmon, all with a light soy sauce and wasabi.... More

Went to this great place with friends last night for the first time, can't wait to go back. The food was fantastic with a wide range on the buffet including all you can eat crab legs after 6:00 pm. Tables a little crammed in making crowded seating but sure didn't detract from the great food. Highly recommend this place as... More

First time visiting the area and saw the coupon in the paper and decided to try it. It is a part of a shopping center located behind a car wash. The restaurant is somewhat dark and the main room is quite crowded with tables. We were seated at an end table towards the restroom. I was not impressed with some... More
