A good buffet in my opinion – I visited this buffet last month, and contrary to prior reviewers, I had a good experience. We had a coupon, so the buffet was not super expensive. And if you use Upromise, you get credit for visiting this restaurant. I was amazed to find the variety of different items that they offer. There was a full line of different types of sushi, that were very good. I definitely ate way too much. I thought it was also nice that the staff comes around and constantly fills your drinks. Overall, I would go back again. The only thing I would say, is don't expect a typical chinese buffet that offers a lot of american food on the side, they are definitely more on the authentic side, but good.
Charges full price for empty buffet – I invited our friends to try this restaurant and it was awful. It was 65 dollars for the 4 adults which isn't too bad but the buffet was empty the entire time we were there. We sat there from 4:30 to 6:30 on a Saturday night and they never made more than one plate of Sushi at a time and then people would pounce on it, it would empty in less than a minute and they didn't make more for another 15 minutes. They were not in a rush either. They could have filled the sushi bar but just flat out wouldn't.
The hot buffet was the same way, people were milling about at the buffet trying to find food they wanted to put on their plate but at one point I counted 15 empty pans of food on their hot buffet. I tried to talk to one of the staff but they just walked off and it stayed that way the whole two hours we were there. I'll never go back. I can't believe they can get away with charging for a bufffet and then leave it empty. I wrote to them the next day since talking to the staff didn't help but I never heard from them.
I would never go back. I felt really awful for bringing our friends there.
98 pounds buffet – Been here about three times and i think it was the last strike out . Food was ok when i first went here but the quality of food went way down. Service was not the best and the sushi chef was rude over all, Other then that the bathrooms are filthy with some type of mold all over the floor and sink. I would really becarful if anyone eats here cause of the sanitation mostly little kids cause they could get really sick the way people handle food. The sushi chefs also leave the raw fish out for hours when they handle it and touch everything making further crossing contamination to everything they touch and could get people sick if anything really becomes contaminated. I would advise someone send a health inspector to check out everything befor someone gets really sick, other then that its your choice if its worth your health for 10 bucks
