Looking to stay away from crowds on Fathers Day visited because they also have snow crab legs. They increased their price by $2 per person because it was Fathers Day....same food as always, but more expensive because of the day....don't get it. All restaurants charge the same all year round. They don't increase their price to take advantage of customers. This sounds like an illegal practice. Both warm and cold crab legs meat was dry. The meat used in several dishes was rubbery and more like cartiledge than actual meat....terrible. Suchi was also terrible. They are supposed to be on a block of rice, there was barely any rice and the rice used on the shrimp sushi was not fully cooked. The ice cream was the only item they managed not to mess up. Maybe because they didn't make it

There has been improvement in the service rendered and quality of food at this restaurant since I last visited. Good food selection to choose from at this place. Lunch is affordable and there is no wait time.

Large buffet restaurant with private room and a great selection of food choices including sushi and Mongolian stir fry. The service was great, the place was not overly loud, the food was fresh, and the wait staff is constantly cleaning up and refilling drinks. The convenient location is right off of 410 at Bandera.

I usually check bathrooms! If bathroom is not clean is kitchen clean? Walked into bathroom and hit by Oder of a men's urinal. It had an overall dirty smell. Sinks were dirty and had one broken, empty soap dispenser. How are the kitchen help or servers washing??? The bar was over filled and watched multiple times as the new food was dumped on top of the old. Had to ask three times to get a drink. Where are the managers.
