Reviewed 13 October 2016

We like to go here on the weekends when they serve more seafood.
From oysters on the half shell, you peel and eat shrimp, to steamed clams,
a good way to begin the meal. Also available are crab legs, stuffed clams, usually 2 kinds of fish, shrimp prepared three different ways, and of course sushi.
Then you have a choice of roast beef, charcoal cooked steak, Mongolian beef,
usually a pizza, many many chicken dishes, three soups, spring rolls, breaded veggies, spaghetti, cooked and pickled mushrooms, steamed and roasted peppers, salads, fruits, and rice!

Then there is the desert section.......

All this for a reasonable price.

It's your average buffet. Couldn't believe though the booth they sat us at the table top leaned and was wobbly. The service was ok. Not sure if we would return though

We went on a Friday night at 6:30. There was no wait. All of the food was hot and delicious. They have added a few different sushi rolls and I particularly love the ones with avocado or just the thinly sliced tuna and salmon. I sample a tad of just about everything. There are several chicken dishes (sesame, pepper, orange) and shrimp dishes(fried, coconut, steamed and chilled). The raw oysters are chilled perfectly and the cocktail sauce has a small zip!. The Hot and sour soup and the wonton soup are my faves...I mix them together. Of course there is steamed rice and fried rice, salads, deserts, beef dishes, pork chops,salmon, and several veggie dishes. All a delight!

We've eaten here in the past with pretty good results, but this place has taken a major step backward. The entire buffet line is mediocre, with some very skimpy snow crab that looks like left-overs from days past. We didn't see one customer try them.
The sushi was dry and tasteless and also looked re-cycled. The rest of the entrees were not much better and the trays were certainly not being re-filled as in the past.
We tried to sit in three different booths only to find badly cracked vinyl on the seats in each case. It's summer and obviously crowds are smaller, but that doesn't excuse
the lack of attention to the food or décor. Not worth a return in any case.

Friend recommended, and brought me here for dinner. Surprised by better than average food, large variety of dishes, continual replenishment of food, and enough seafood and vegetables to satisfy a non meat eater. The price was very reasonable.
