The first thing you should know about this place is that it is very popular and busy. I think I can understand why. The buffet is set up well so that you don't necessarily have to stand in line if you don't have the patience. There is also quite a selection of different foods to choose from: salad; sushi; Hibachi;... More

I used to be a fan of this restaurant. Over time the quality of the food has become mediocre. Every time my husband has eaten here he leaves with a head ache. (Probably msg.) On my last visit a waiter insisted that I could not bring my six month old son into the restaurant with a stroller even though they... More

While the food at Tappanyaki is OK, the manager at the Lanham spot is a real piece of work. He overcharges per the displayed charges, so really look at your receipt. When caught, he accost the complaining customer. He also instructs his cashiers to charge an extra dollar for any party over 4 which only goes to eliminating the tip... More

We have eaten at Tappanyaki Grill a number of times. There was a very good sushi chef on site and since he has departed, the quality of the sushi has declined and so have our visits. There are so many buffet items that it is hard to choose. There are a few items that are regularly of good quality including... More

The staff was fast at getting the left over plates and replacing your drinks. The food was average. The crab legs they came in a container as singles making a hassle of not getting complete clusters. They was plenty of oysters. The salt amd pepper shirmp tasted blan with no hint of salt.

Best thing about this the variety. It is one of the largest buffets that I have ever been. Large selection of American as well as Chinese fare along with a nice sushi bar and Mongolian grill. The best items usually come from the sushi bar but that is just my taste. I would rate the Chinese food as average. Service... More

I use to live in Ohio and there were some great Chinese Buffet places in Ohio. I do love Chinese food. Then, we moved to Florida a couple years ago and the places down there were horrible. So much that I stopped going to Chinese because we could not find any good ones. We moved to MD a month ago... More
