The quality of the food is excellent. All staff members are super nice and very attentive. The buffet is being cleaned constantly. Great food for a reasonable price. One evening when we were the last guests we very much enjoyed seeing how all workers seemed to enjoy working together deep-cleaning the buffet area and listening to beautiful and a little... More

The decor is a bit old and dated, but the tables were clean. Food is okay if you are looking for your standard fried fare. They also had roast beef, mac and cheese, and other non-Chinese items. There also were some unusual items like raw oysters, though I did not personally sample these. They did not have soft serve ice... More

I had a group. My treat. My bill 335.00 . In the group are categorical seniors and 2 full blown ones. The young cashier says they took that out and they don't do THAT ANYMORE, SENIORS: You NO GO, NO DISCOUNT, okey?

I found the food to be average, as was the price. The atmosphere was typical for a buffet. The staff was attentive and pleasant.

Give Hibachi Chinese restaurant a second chance. The new owners are very courteous and keep the buffet hot and fresh. Many choices that should satisfy anyone's taste. Lunch buffet to 3:30 pm. is only $7.95 and the price is hard to beat in the Carrollwood area. The quality of the foods and deserts offered is good and you will return... More

We always go with a big crowd after church. Last Sunday, when we all started to leave after we paid, the server grabbed my hubby outside and told him that our friend didn't pay. We all had our paid receipts this server called the cops. Really? Even the cops thought how dumb this was. I do not recommend this place... More

Hibachi bar wasn't appealing. Great appetizers. Good hot and sour soup. Lots of mushroom choices. Good service. Ugly Decor. Fresh fruit and good dessert bar. Average buffet choices.

I went for my birthday because online they offered a free birthday dinner. They did not offer it at all. They changed it to half price. They were rude about it. They tried to charge adult prices for my younger kids. False advertising to say the least. They have terrible customer service. Food wasn't tasteful at all. Worst birthday dinner... More

Went here for lunch and I saw the mixed reviews so I wanted to look at the tables first. Everything looked good and fresh. There were 5 tables with different types of food covering sushi, hot Chinese style, hot American style salad, fruit and desert. When I sat down I did get a scare as the spoon was stuck to... More
