Reviewed 23 June 2017 via mobile

Visited for a weekday lunch and the place was full of working people on their lunch break. Staff was friendly, but I'm glad my partner had been here before because I would have had no clue what to do.

You are seated at a table and then you make your way to the buffet line. Everything here is raw so you're basically building a meal to be cooked. Any combination is fine, and as there are no limitations. They do have some helpful recipe cards which I'd recommend until you get the hang of things. You pay by the bowl, so whatever fits is fine. No matter how interesting you balance things. You'll also get a scoop of white or fried rice with any bowl. Once you've decided on your protein, veggies, toppings, and sauce you bring it to the hibachi grill where it's cooked and served to you. (See pictures)

I'd say the quality of the food is the only thing holding this place back from a full five stars, but maybe it just takes a few trips to get the right combination. Price was great for the amount of food and the waitress kept our drinks full.

Overall a great experience

Thank Christina P

Prepared food was dry, greasy and overcooked. Tried hibatchi, very limited choices and results were fair, at best. String beans had both old and newly cooked mixed together. The coconut cake tasted like hairspray. Leaving to get food elsewhere....

Buffets are wonderful if you want to try many different dishes - and that's the strong point of this place. Standard Chinese dishes - several soups, noodle dishes, fish, seafood (clams, ...), shrimp (boiled and breaded/fried, vegetable stews. Also you might not expect tempura vegetables. Hibachi grill, made-for-you soups with choices of noodles, and other ingredients (including roast duck.) There's a small (only a couple of dozen items) nice sushi assortment, and I haven't even mentioned the assortment of dessert items plus a choice of about half a dozen ice cream flavors. Always bustling, seldom a wait since it has lots of seating.

Took my wife and 2 oldest daughters for lunch. They loved the hibachi grill where they chose the food they want , gave to chef who fires it up on the grill for you to enjoy. Endless choices on 4 rows of every kind of dish you want to try. Attentive staff for a buffet. Drinks stayed full and plates cleared so we could head back for more. Great price , decent quality, nice decor...will return
