Customer Service was good. They had a mangolian grill, Seafood section and mostly Chinese food. Sushi bar. The food was not that fresh or over cooked. The mangolian grill was best part of my meal though. Sushi was very stale. Lots of room for seating.

Went as a group of seven. I have been to this buffet restaurant several times and feel there has been some improvement in cleanliness. If you are mostly concerned about atmosphere and furnishings this is probably not the place for you, However, if your primary interest is good asian food at reasonable price, this may be your cup of tea....

Food here is good, though not always top notch, items often not replenished quickly. I stopped going because of the foul odor, from the carpet or restrooms. Not a comfortable place to eat.

We arrived just after 9PM on Sunday. Closing time is 10PM. The grill closes at 9PM each night. There's no notice outside the restaurant. One finds out once going through the line to get food. The sushi bar was very limited, about 1/4 available. The food quality was average. Food selection overall was the slimmest of any buffets I've been... More

I went on two occasions and the food was awful. Not a big selection for vegetarians unless you're the type of vegetarian that eats only salads. I'm truly perplexed at the reviews that say it's quality. If I were to grade on flavor and cleanliness, I'd sadly have to give them a "D -." The food was just awful.

It's hard to go wrong when you have unlimited crab, sushi, a Japanese style grill, and all you can eat Chinese food. Everyone had different tastes and interests, and it was fun to see the choices everyone made. Oh, and it's affordable!

Two things it has going for it is that it is fairly clean and they keep the trays full. Unfortunately, what they keep the trays full of is... sub-optimal. Chinese food, frozen pizza, mac and cheese, sushi, something that may have been an enchilada? A definite case of going for quantity over quality. Seems to be a decent business plan... More

The selection is large enough for a buffet. More importantly, the quality and freshness are very good. I work at an office nearby. When I have a meeting with guests from as far as Europe, an informal lunch at this restaurant usually receives high praises.

I looked at the menu on Trip Advisor for early Sunday afternoon and the actual price was almost twice as much as shown at this buffet. The menu says $8.99 before 4 pm but it was almost $16 all day on Sunday. It wasn't worth it.
