FOOD: ***** SERVICE: **** VALUE: ***** ATOMSPHERE: **** This restaurant is not a traditional Chinese restaurant because it serves sushi and toast beef which cannot be seen in Chinese restaurant. Eating there is a definitely good choice for everyone. If you like eating Japanese cuisine, there are 3 to 4 sushi chefs making various sushi all the time. If you... More

First off the parking lot at savers can be kind of a bummer so we weren't sure what to expect. However, as soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be awesome. Every walk of south Minneapolis represented and this made me inordinately happy. The host, Charles was very friendly and warm. The wait staff were friendly... More

While I enjoy going to Teppanyaki for Sushi and their Stuffed Mushrooms among other things, it was pointed out, the last time I was there, that the employees who handle food should be wearing gloves. This is, indeed, a health issue and frankly, I'm surprised the Board of Health hasn't gotten on their case about this. Also, as I was... More

In addition, it is a good price to enjoy eating their food. There are kinds of foods, such as, Sushi, Chinese food, Fast food, fruit and ice cream. It is a... More

We were there on Christmas evening and the buffet was very busy. The food was fresh and there was plenty of choices. The Mongolian grill was very flavorful. They had a chocolate fountain with banana, pineapple, and marshmallow. The only thing I would have liked to see on the buffet for the price would have been crab legs.

$12.59 for the weekend dinner buffet. They have a great selection of sushi which I devoured along with a plate of Chinese food. The table near me was full of screaming kids and the family was busy face timing friends which made for a noisy dinner. The food and selection here is really good.
