I have been to this restaurant a countless number of times. However, this has now changed. The restaurant has done some drastic cost cutting. They keep 75% of their sushi trays empty and replenish them infrequently. I asked to speak with the manager. He gave me many excuses such as their needing more time to replenish the plates, employees needing... More

This place is enormous offering every possible type of food you could imagine buffet style. One price, all you can eat including desserts. Beverages are extra. Service is a little slow but considering the size of the place it's not a problem. We had a party here in the back room and it was great. A must see just for... More

Did not bring any water refills or tell me about or how to do the shabu shabu. Then on top of that the server helped herself to a $10 tip which she added on to the bill. $80 for two people and the food was just ok. But the service made it horrible.

I went there with my friend for lunch, there are many varieties of food so you can choose. I would prefer to have few recipes for shabu to know how to make them. Otherwise it is good place to try Asian food.

Came here over spring break with our family and loved the experience. And we're mid western folks from Ohio. The fresh sushi and cooking the soup on our table was a trill. Our kids had a blast with trying all the foods & not to mention the desert. Food was high quality & delicious. Will definitely be back next year.

This place is good, I go here for dinner every two weeks or so. Sushi is fresh and they have this new station that they sautéed everything fresh for you on a flat grill. They did take a few things away that I enjoyed like fried oysters but all the new items are equally as good. I would recommend this... More

I went to this place 3 times before. Food, service and atmosphere were great, but not this time. Not sure what happened, but food is mediocre, sushi selection is very sad and, I wouldn't affraid to say, not fresh. Hot buffet is not hot, but rather warm. Service is horrible, no smiles, no polite greetings, waiter we had demanded a... More

The food tasted like heaven, make sure to go on an empty stomach, you will want to taste every dish, just be patient because when it is crowded, the food flies

What a feast-sushi, sashimi. shabu shabu.................they have it all----everything (especially if you arrive by noon) is incredibly fresh, and tasty beyond belief. They also have delicious skewers, soup, salads of all types, and fresh fish. Come during the next two months and enjoy the hot pot---make you own soup at your table. I would go back every day for their... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
