Not as good as it used to be. Smell of fish overwhelms you walking through the door. And you leave smelling like fish until you shower. Ugh. Lots of "meat options" but very little carb options. Good selection of sushi if you like sushi. Chocolate fountain really? Seems silly

Food always hot, or cold... Complete sushi bar... Great for all ages, wheel chair accessable... The best host Eric... Always have time... Never feels the "get em in get em out" rushed feel

Our Thanksgiving plans fell through at the last minute, so we went here for dinner and to our surprise we had to wait a few minutes for a table. This was the first my daughter and I had sushi for Thanksgiving, and it was some of the best we've eaten. Their turkey with all the fixings were also available and... More

We enjoy dinning at this Chinese Buffet & it's become one of our favorites. The food always looks & tastes fresh, and yummy! The restaurant is clean, and maintained. A large selection of Chinese & Japanese dishes, as well as a Caribbean flare of fried sweet plantains (love these)! Good selection of desserts including ice creams, pastries, jello, and fresh...

We wanted Chinese for dinner, this was the first place i found in the area we were staying, and was very pleasantly surprised. There were lots of seafood and many tasty dishes, but for me, the sushi was very good for a buffet, lots of flavor and tasted very clean, i would definately come back!

This is my favorite Chinese buffet in the Olympia area. Great selection, delicious food! Those that choose to give low ratings based solely on Inspectors' reports are missing the boat! Hot food is always hot, cold food cold, etc. Eaten here many times and never had any issues. This is THE place if you want Chinese!

My 13 years old Grandson told us this was his favorite place to eat and, since he was the MVP in his football game, we went there to celebrate. Parking is plentiful. Entrance is clean and hospitable. In the foyer a small aquarium hosts few gigantic Koi which have no room to turn around in, a turnoff. The staff were... More
