I have to say that this was the worst Asian buffet I have ever been to. We usually frequent another buffet down the street but decided to give this a try. Big mistake. Everything was old and flavorless. The crawfish wasn't cooked thoroughly and wasn't season well at all. The boiled shrimp was completely flavorless. The fries, sweet n sour... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the huge variety of items offered. The food was good. The price was great. they had sushi, sahimi, boiled crawfish, crabs and shrimp. They had all the expected items as well as a dish with octopus legs. I tried it and it the octopus was very tender.

Ate here by reccomendation. Clean, bright, spacious establishment. Waitresses are courteous, service with a smile, eager to serve. Family friendly. Conservative prices. Now, the food. Variety, well seasoned. If I could have eaten more, I would have.Seconds anyone? For sure! Well worth giving it a try!

We have eaten there twice, not very impressed either time. There is a nice selection of food, but all appears to be canned meals that are simply dumped into serving trays in a steamer to keep warm.

Was barely any food to choose from on the buffet line, it was cold Food n wasn't seasoned. Had to keep reminding staff to bring out more Snow Crablegs, and when they did so it was a little at a time. Wouldn't think twice about returning nor would I recommend to a friend or a family member.

On our way from a Plantation tour, we stopped here due to heavy rain. It was a great choice, it's a bit older and run down, but had the best variety I have experienced in a long time. Seafood table, stir fry grill, sushi prepared in front of you, a great salad bar, hot items and crawfish galore. The bill... More

I have been here many times. I have in the past rated it as acceptable and in some cases good. This last visit early in the evening had the food at best tepid and in some case cool. The food appeared to have been out a while. I declined to eat more than bite of cold food that was supposed... More
