I love a Chinese Buffet and have eaten at all of those in our area. This one has the widest variety of items to select from and is kept stocked with food and is clean at all times. The price can't be beat.

Traveling with old folks and kids. Missed Chinese food. Had a great meal at Hibachi. Inexpensive, good and with wide variety of food.

My family and I went to HIbachi for dinner. I did not have any high expectations but it turned out for the better. The restaurant looked pretty nice and clean. There is much to choose from. The food isn't from high quality but for the low price it is really good. In my home country we would have easily paid... More

Excellent selection of dishes ranging from salads to sushi with something for everyone. It is not just Japanese as the name might imply. There is: seafood , various meats, chinese, Japanese, Italian, salad bar, soups, and more. They have done a much better job of keeping it clean than our last visit a year ago. One of the better all... More

Found this all you can eat Asian buffet. Had a good variety of foods. The food was fresh. The price was right for lunch. The service was not that great.

This is all you can eat buffet with Hibachi. The food is average but offers variety. One thing that I like about this place is that they offer crapes! Though their craps are average & offers different types (Strawberry, Banana, etc.) but just the concept of crapes in a buffet is simply different.

Food is good, but overpriced. It is always a madhouse inside, kids running all over the place, but the reason we stopped going was the management. They care ZERO about their customers and the wait staff treats customers like garbage. They simply do not care how they treat you because they are overrun with people. I work too hard to... More

If quantity over quality is important, this is your spot. It's not bad as these places go, but it's not great as food goes. I eat here mainly when I'm really hungry and want shrimp or Hibachi grill. I think it's worth the price under those circumstances.
