98 pounds is our favorite buffet restaurant! We come here often. We had tried different Chinese buffet but we always end up coming back here. Why? The food is just so tasty, yummy, delicious and honest! I had been to Japan before and I know how sushi taste like. And in this restaurant you will be able to find it.... More

Food, in its wide wide variety, is excellent. Mainly Chinese and a good array of Sushi. A Buffet style that's never empty. Food is always in its natural 'status', the hot is always hot and the cold is pretty cold. A soft Ice cream fountain, in a vicinity of a vast selection of fruits is the icing of the cake.... More

I met a friend here for lunch in the middle of the week. We arrived right at noon and hit the buffet. Even at this relatively early time most of the food was only luke warm. A few of the items were not put out and others were so picked over that no one was touching them. 2 types of... More

98 Pounds has an unassuming exterior, but features a good variety at a great price for the sushi bar and Chinese buffet inside. I went for lunch with five co-workers and we were pleased. You pay up front, which is convenient and adds to the efficiency. They are good at keeping the buffet restocked. The wait staff was personable and... More

Just off freeway. Heading to airport to drop someone off. Great lunch. Love the sushi & buffet items. Presentation is good & food tastes fresh. Service is good & restaurant is clean. From outside doesn't look as inviting. We stop here often. Many different nationalities eating here as well as a variety of ages!

The staff is always very friendly and attentive, the restaurant is always clean and busy and the sushi is always fresh! Not what you expect from a buffet selling sushi! You get a whole buffet for the price of what you pay for one roll at most sushi places! The rest of the buffet is good too...and typically fresh.

It's part of a strip mall and from the outside it doesn't look like anything special, but you walk inside and it is gorgeous. The food was hot (not warm) and tasted fresh. Amazing won tons, the best eggrolls I've had at a restaurant ever. All around it's a great restaurant and worth every penny. We will return next time... More

The first visit phenomenal! So decided to go back for lunch for a second time due to falling in love with the stuffed oysters and grouper ( beware the head is attached). So both of the items that impacted me to revisit this restaurant were empty panned when I went to fix my plate. After requesting the items 3 times... More

Buffet restaurants can be just okay, or not so hot. 98 Pounds is wonderful. It is clean, well run and has a great selection of wonderful stuff to eat. The availability of sea food is awesome. The Sushi Bar is great. Variety is key here. Everything seemed to be fresh and hot. All that we tried was so very good.... More
