Saturday Lunch buffet was only 7.49 and hot tea was only 1.49. For the price this place is fine. They have hibachi stir fry (no rice noodle), and a very basic sushi. Many options and the place was absolutely packed with large groups. Overall very...More

Modest price. Acceptable food. Not exceptional but will go back. Decent price. Wide selection. Not much else to say about it.
