Popular with students because of its wide variety of Chinese and western food (including Sushi) and reasonable prices.

We were in Bloomington for a visit with family. We decided to try this restaurant. It was very good. The waitresses were not overly friendly but were not rude nor in hospitable. The food itself was very good and there was a very good selection to choose from for a family oriented oriental cuisine. The wait to be seated was... More

My family went to eat here at about an hour before closing. The good side is the place is less crowded, the downside is most of the food is either dry or gone. It won't be fair I guess to criticize the food since it was late night. The service was slow, probably the servers were tired from a long... More

What's not to love? Better than average food and plenty of it! Service was not to great but no big deal since it's mostly a help yourself affair. We'll be returning for sure!

This seems to be very popular with the locals. I went on a Saturday night, and it was busy-a good sign! They have a varied selection. You can get hibachi, sushi, Chinese, fruit, salad, and dessert. I personally am not much of a buffet person. There are several options as far as types of sushi, but sushi lovers will be... More

I have only been here once so far. No doubt I will be there again. The food was aplenty, the desserts were aplenty, however, the two things (why I gave this a 4 star), the hibachi items were scarce at around 830pm at night, and the service on refills was a bit iffy. Otherwise, it is great having soy sauce... More

I usually don't like Americal Chinese buffet. The food is either too sweet or too salty. But here at Mr Hibachi the food is surprisingly good and they provide different styles (some typical american chinese food and some more traditional chinese food and also sushi and salad). The environment is also a lot cleaner compare to other chinese restaurant.

Buffet style variety of foods. 20 min before closing some items unavailable but surprisingly had a large variety of food available and desserts. Very busy student friendly about 1-1/2 miles from IU. Reasonably priced.
