The food is excellent and all you could possibly eat. I am a little disappointed in our server who changed her tip by $10. While the meal for two people was good and service fine a $20 Tip was a little much. I did check with the bank and they verified the tip was changed by someone in the business.... More

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious lunch here. We were seated quickly, the restaurant was clean, the wait staff was attentive, and the price for lunchtime was very reasonable on the regular side of the restaurant. The salad came with a wonderful dressing, however, there was so much dressing it pooled in the bottom of the bowl so I... More

My wife and I recently ate here for lunch on the hibachi side. We were seated immediately, given menus and had our drink orders taken. Drinks were brought quickly along with a salad and Miso soup. Besides us, there were six other people at our grill. Restaurant appeared clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would estimate... More

First time eating there and my friend told me to order the chicken hibachi, so I did and it was great. It came with grilled vegetables and fried rice and I had to take some home.

We took our youngest for her 11th birthday dinner, her choice, and the excitement of our table mates being really happy coupled with a great chef just added to a great atmosphere all around. At first I thought that they were a bit rambunctious (for 7 young adults) but once we settled in at the table I saw differently. We... More

A friend and I had an excellent meal here on Friday night. I enjoyed hibachi chicken and veggies (tip: you don't have to sit at the hibachi to order from it.) My friend enjoyed the all you can eat sushi. It took a long time between the sushi orders because the chefs were incredibly busy. That wasn't an issue for... More

Was birthday celebration for son, called to reserve, once arrival at restaurant, waited for 20 minutes to be seated and then another 15 before a server approached for drink order. Ordered 5 orders of sushi at time of drink order. Sushi arrived when last food was served off of Hibachi, so you can figure time that it took to get... More

While visiting my children in the area we stopped for lunch and the sushi was really good, but the ginger salad dressing was the bomb. We had the all you can eat sushi buffett and it was worth it. The kids had the sweet and sour chicken, the plates were finished off. I'd give it a shot if you're in... More

You can't beat the all you can eat sushi. Very practically priced if you manage your expectations and don't overdo it.

I have gone to Cathay Asian Bistro three or four times. The first time I went, we had great service and the food was (as it is consistently) excellent. The other times I went (again with family and/or friends), the service was not great....it was hard to flag down the server, the food was not delivered accurately, and/or the server... More
