My husband and I really enjoyed the buffet. The sushi was fresh and tasty. If you eat here and can't find something on the buffet that you like, then you are just too hard to please.

We recently moved back to the area after being away for 15 years, and the Main Buffet is as good as it was when we went regularly nearly 20 years ago after they opened. I have been to better Chinese buffets in the meantime, and...More

Not as good as it used to be. Smell of fish overwhelms you walking through the door. And you leave smelling like fish until you shower. Ugh. Lots of "meat options" but very little carb options. Good selection of sushi if you like sushi. Chocolate...More

Dinner for an adult is $14.99. They consider a 13 year old an adult for some reason. After that the price goes down to $11.99 for 12 and under until you get to 9 year olds and they're only $8.99 so it's not a cheap meal... More
