We love their food. Always have. They service is not always good. The owner can be very rude at times.

They have a very good mongolian grill and a nice sushi menu with quite a variety. The buffet is not like one of the large buffet restaurants but what they do have available is good quality and flavor. The atmosphere is quite nice and the service is good.

Have not eaten here in several yrs. found service avg but the buffet was cold on some dishes. The magnolia grill was still top notch. Good middle of the road experience. Place needs a internal face lift

I was very disappointed to see the buffet was empty of food. The sushi bar was empty. The buffet equipment was unclean and the service was horrible. I regrettably cannot recommend this place as I would not allow my dog to eat that food. Do not waste your money or time on this place!! Very Dissatisfied and Disappointed!!!

Great location, plenty of seating, and a huge selection on their buffet. Also a great mongolian grill if you don't see just what you want on the buffet. Reasonable prices & good service.

Cheap food. I'd choose the Mongolian grill over the buffet.
