The staff is very friendly, fresh sushie made in small batches. I like that they put out smaller portions so food is fresher, the coconut shrimp is the best I've ever had. Overall my favorite buffet in the area.

All the food looks great, one of the best looking buffets i have seen. Large selection of food, very clean place. Now about the taste - not bad but not great. Nothing to really complain about but somewhat generic taste. Looks much better than it...More

My hubby and son love sushi. When we moved here we tried them and they are hooked! I enjoy all the non-sushi food! Serves is good too! Been here twice and so far we are happy with this place.
