Lots of chiseled choices, but very medium core food, generally over cooked and not very pleasing. If you’re hungry, it might do for a hungry man’s lunch or dinner, but personally I would not come here on a date.

Always a generous selection even when close to closing. The shrimp is to die for. Sushi available as well as most Asian food varieties. Soup area is well maintained. Never a bad meal although price creep has made it tough for a family of four.

They charge different prices for lunch and dinner. Unsure what the charge is for kids. Best you call restaurant for prices.
