We have been to many sushi buffets, this one is exceptional. The Sushi is fresh every day and you can eat as much as you want without having to ask the sushi makers for more. They have crab legs that are always large and cooked...More

They have a good selection of sushi and cooked dish, though I just hope that we don't have to wait till the king crab legs tray are empty so that customers don't have to wait in line. If you want to save money print out...More

Sushi was great and rolls were fresh! Hot food was a little old, but we arrived an hour before closing. They have a ton of stuff, including dessert. Great value for lunch. I can't speak for dinner, but the cost is almost double.

Disappointed in the food. Very little variety in selection of food compared to other buffets. One short row of hot food. They advertise crab legs but never put them out. We asked several times for them and finally asked for a manager who never came...More
