I come here 3 times a week. $9.80 all you can eat high quality hibachi and sushi. Ballentine's best secret. Create your own plate hibachi and it's cooked very quickly, you can watch if you'd like. White sauce is not like most places but it's good and it's right by the grill. Small sushi buffet with great Philadelphia rolls, rainbow... More

Went with my sons (10 & 7) a couple of weeks ago for dinner. The hibachi grill & the buffet food was good not great. We are not sushi eaters. I thought it was very pricy. I was glad my husband didn't come because it was $38 (with tip) for just the 3 of us ($13.99 for adult & we... More

Food is okay. Sushi is not cold enough for my taste and the items are typical buffet. The hibachi is good. Easy for something quick. A little over priced.

You will enjoy a quiet setting with some of the best flavor a that tingle your taste buds. The buffet is refreshed constantly during your time. The sushi is always fresh. You get a great sampling of some of the best that Hokkaido has to offer, one bite at a time. Highly recommended!

We love to go there for Sunday buffet . Fresh food and great desserts! The kimchi is my favorite after sushi and hibachi as well! Great for families, a little pricey for dinner, although totally worth it! Very close location to Walmart.

I really enjoyed the sushi and dessert! Sushi was fresh and delicious, I had to get a second plate! They had a chocolate layer cake that had a taste of coffee to it and was exquisite!
