Both Royal Buffet and the Hao Sushi Buffet (which replaced them) are both out of business. They had great food, decent prices, but for some reason, could not survive. Must have been due to the rent prices for such a massive location. It's a shame....More

This location has closed. There is another buffet there, but I don't know the name of it. I think they also might have sushi.

When they first opened they were better years ago. Still not bad but it seems the selection has not been a good. I am not so big on quantity, but on quality. Not a bad buffet if that is the desire.

Great selection. Been enjoying their food for many years. However, the last time we drove up to find out they had closed earlier this year. Very disappointed.

A bigger selection than most, and at dinnertime, they offer a fresh Sushi Bar and to-order grill that includes teriyaki sirloin and standing rib. (prime rib). Sodas are extra, but hot tea is included. Our go-to spot après-sea. Not bad for casual business luncheons.

The food there is always great, and we go there so often that when it was just four of us instead of five, they brought out five glasses of water because they were used to us being five people.

I've paid as much as $35 for a buffet and the food at the Royal Buffet for about $16 is just as good. Great seafood, sushi, and a very wide variety of Chinese dishes and fruit. Dessert is somewhat limited (although they have a lot...More
