From Sushi to Sashimi, Teriyaki to vegetable Tempura this place has got what you would expect from a Japanese Buffet restaurant, including a Samurai helmet, outfit and sword.. well two swords. Just in case you don't pay your bill. Fake fish mounted on walls around the room. No fish tales there. It also has lots of other items as well... More

Been coming here for years with friends. Finally convinced my wife and kids to try it and now they are hooked too. Great choices, good service, unbeatable prices. Sushi is always fresh and they have an amazing desert selection. Always a pleasure to come here.

I've been going to this authentic Japanese buffet for well over 10 years and it never disappoints. If you love seafood and sushi this is your spot. It well worth the price especially during dinner hours when they serve oysters, crab legs, and other higher end sushi selections. After you go there couple of times you'll know exactly what your...

If you are into japanese/asian food this buffet will surely intrigue your taste. Serve delicious food at a reasonable price. There's a vast chiices of sushi, to chinese food, soups, bbq's and deserts.

As the luncheon buffet will set you back about $30 a person this is not cheap eats but the variety of the sushi and other Japanese products it's excellent and the quality is good. Possible that the cost of ingredients (a lot of seafood) is why this is more expensive than Chinese buffets.

Massive variety. I stuck with sushi but plants of other choices. Food fresh and delicious. I do wish they had more serving tongs for the sushi and they switched them out regularly - they got a little sticky. We were attending a large private party and had a private section. They know how to handle a crowd.

I have been here several times now. This is the best sushi buffet you will find. There is so much more than sushi though. They have crab legs, pork belly, all sorts of other Asian dishes.
