We've been here before over the past 4 years and it has consistently become more expensive and the food has become consistently worse. This was the last time. 13 bucks per person and there is mostly cheap American food on the buffet! The hibachi part has no flavor and when I went to the buffet, there were 4 Asian selections...

We have been here twice before. We had not been back since 2015, and just went today at about 4 p.m. It was $16 per person. The sushi was dried up and it was obviously sitting there for quite some time. There was one choice that had salmon on it and it was all dried up. The other food that... More

We’ve patronized this place at least 20 times over the past three years and it was always quite decent. However, circumstances have since changed. First, there were no shrimp dishes whatsoever. Next, blue cheese dressing has been eliminated from the salad bar. Last, despite eliminating items in an apparent effort to cut costs, the price of the buffet has increased... More

My daughter and I ate here today for lunch and the food was fresh, hot and good with a lot of variety. Prices were good. It was very clean and many tables were busy. service was also very good. If you're in the mood to try a variety of Chinese food I would give it a go

I went to this place last night against my better judgment. I could not imagine it would be good but I gave it a chance. The place is very clean however everything we tried was horrible. The crabs were swimming in some nasty water and smelled like red tide. However the ice cream was good. I cannot in good conscience... More

Worst place in Venice. I can't even believe the doors are open, this place will not be open for long... There is absolutely nothing good about this place.

Our family of four had dinner here, or tried anyway. I can honestly say the ONLY thing we felt was good was the white rice. Everything else was either extremely overcooked or still mooing and clucking. Although our server was extremely nice, I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We visited this buffet quite a few times and had mixed experiences (it depended on what staff they had). We are big fans of sushi and the choice of sushi is pretty good there. The choice of hot food is generally good, but if you go there for lunch (closer to the dinner time) you can find that some dishes... More

One of the worst Chinese buffets I've ever eaten at. Indistinguishable gelatinous fried clumps of shrimp,chicken or beef with thick heavy sauces. Clearly fried frozen shrimp. Egg rolls with just cabbage inside. Crab legs so over cooked they wouldn't crack but would tear leaving the tiniest remnants of crab. The soup wasn't bad and ice cream was good but everything...
