Place was clean. Food was good. Sushi was very good. Price was reasonable. I think if you really love sushi it is a good price. It is a buffet so you can get as much as you like. Sushi is a pricey food so it will be worth it at this restaurant. They have ok deserts. The ice cream is... More

We have been to many sushi buffets, this one is exceptional. The Sushi is fresh every day and you can eat as much as you want without having to ask the sushi makers for more. They have crab legs that are always large and cooked perfectly. The buffet is clean and the rest of the food they make is also... More

They have a good selection of sushi and cooked dish, though I just hope that we don't have to wait till the king crab legs tray are empty so that customers don't have to wait in line. If you want to save money print out a coupon from their website to get a 10% discount.

Quality is horrible - but what do you expect from an all you can eat Japanese restaurant. Fish tastes like rubber. Not a fan at all.

We are regular customers but the past number of visits have been one step worse than the one before. Good selection has become boring and plain. Service is two thumbs down. The straw that finally did it for us is the all day dinner price for Father's Day and no coupon accepted. We came in for lunch and expected really... More

Have been coming here for the better part of the last ten years. It has been for lunch better then 3/4 of the time. Last night was just pathetic, half the Sushi was never replenished. The rolls that were put out just fell apart. They quit bringing out more clams and oysters. The sashimi was also a after thought. Not... More

Sushi was great and rolls were fresh! Hot food was a little old, but we arrived an hour before closing. They have a ton of stuff, including dessert. Great value for lunch. I can't speak for dinner, but the cost is almost double.

Disappointed in the food. Very little variety in selection of food compared to other buffets. One short row of hot food. They advertise crab legs but never put them out. We asked several times for them and finally asked for a manager who never came out. When they did put crab legs out they only put 15-20 out which is... More
