This was the worst buffet I have ever eaten and the price of 15.00 should be 5.00. Cold food , weak drinks, only thing good was service. This was the worst buffet and the worst food I've ever eaten. I'm a fair guy, read my past reviews. Don't waste your time or money.

I recently visited Yukai and realized that they no longer offer crab legs! The rest of the food is fine, and the sushi is decent, but my main reason for coming here was the crab legs. The rest of the Chinese buffet menu was just not as good as I've had at other restaurants.

After reading reviews we decided to try this place and loved it. We were promptly seated and able to enjoy our lunch. Lots of choices for a sushi lover and non sushi lovers alike! Check the coupon books for $3 off discounts.

This was one of the best buffets that I have been to the variety of sushi was amazing and the hibachi is a must. I was very impressed with the service as they had servers who spoke multiple languages. You don't get that everywhere. There are coupons in the hotel brochures for this place that give a few dollars off.... More

Best sushi I've ever had in my life! This buffet has a lot of options for all types of diets, from vegetarian and vegan, to low-carb/diabetics. It is really well priced, especially for the quality of the food, and especially for the lunch buffet. My husband and I ate there for the first time, today, and we both agreed that... More

My family enjoys coming to this restaurant. There is an enormous variety of seafood and other food. The sushi is fresh and delicious. The kalbi tastes good. The hibachi food is good. The crab legs are good. I miss the fried oysters that they stopped serving. The service is attentive.

As the title says, I stopped in at this place thinking it was a bit pricey but I was blown away by the quantity and quality of sushi. Thier soups are amazing as well. They've got a great Habachi bar, but just a so-so line of other oriental foods. Overall worth the $11.99 for lunch!

My wife who hates buffets gave this her seal of approval. The sushi was great and freshly made. All the dishes seem to be smaller quantities compared to other places so they are made more often. The hibachi items were somewhat limited but the quality is well about average. We will come back next time we are visiting VA Beach.
