They have the freshest sushi and a regular Chinese menu for those who need cooked food. Clean restaurant and restrooms.

The food and the selection is great. Pricing is moderate and tables are usually available. It would be nice if the staff created a more "organized" entry area where you can move around without bumping into everyone else.

Good food, good variety, family type. The sushi bar is my favorite, they have around 15-20 different types at list, there is a cook to order mini bar, and hot items as well.

Lots of choices but pretty ho hum food. LOTS of fake crab and selections are frequently mislabeled, (mussels labeled as oysters, white fish labeled as salmon). You can eat a ton for the price, but the question is would you want to.

The family always likes this place because it's a buffet and everybody can always get or find whatever they like. Without fail they always seem to be running low on sashimi and crab legs and the downside of their sushi is every rule they have...More
