This review is on the lack of cleanliness of the restaurant 🤢 Yuck! We walked it there was food all over the floor and counters. I asked the waitress if she could have someone sweep it up. They did sweep it up right away. Unfortunately all the condiment containers are grimy also. My husband has raved about this place and... More

I love the fact that they have take-out! The price is good value for the food and the service is always nice. There are times I've been in the restaurant when they could keep the food service area a bit neater and fuller (especially when it's packed and a high volume food time)

When you design your own food, it has to be good. You add your own ingredients so it has to be good. One small tip, crush the rolled meat before you put it in your plate, it is rolled and frozen for a reason, {it takes up more room}. Beside that, every thing else is fine.

Took my kids to this place and unfortunately was very disappointed. Food wasn't want I expected and the place seemed a little on the dirty side.

Tons of food- as much as you can fit in a Large bowl. Very flavorful. You choose the sauces and oils to cook with. This is our favorite place for a healthy meal and we ALWAYS have a lot of leftovers. Tip- when they put the uncooked food on the cooktop they may ask you to choose an oil to... More

Let's be clear right from the start. This place isn't pristine. If youre put off by greasy fixtures and such, this may not be for you. It's a bit of a dive, especially during and right after busy lunch or dinner times. BUT...if you can look past that you will have a very nice meal at a good price. The... More

Ok so I am not one to be sooo nit picky but I have to say a little effort would go a long way! The concept is great and it looked that they have a good assortment of items to add to your dish as you go along the station, however it needs to be filled so that all can... More

Great fresh food, the kids love the ability to pick their own and watch it cook. Prices are reasonable, especially for a large family.

We like this place as we get to choose what we want in our food and how much. Don't have to travel 30 miles for this kind of food. Kids under five eat free and older pay according to age which is cheap comparing to other restaurants. We will go back again.
