Not nearly as good as we had expected. But prices were low and maybe, just maybe, that made up for it.

My daughter wanted to visit this place for her birthday and we were very disappointed. The variation in food was poor, the plates were dirty, and the buffet was understocked. It was certainly not anything to call home about:(

There truly aren't words to describe how bad the food is here...it is easily one of the worst Asian Restaurants in which we have eaten. Asian food on an open buffet in never very good but this one takes it down to the lowest point!...More

Depending on traffic, about 10 minutes. Our favorite time to go is around 4:30. Not too busy and the food is very fresh. Also, give the sushi a try. It's really very good.
