Food here is good, though not always top notch, items often not replenished quickly. I stopped going because of the foul odor, from the carpet or restrooms. Not a comfortable place to eat.

great family owned place. Food is good as well as the service. Good value for your dollar. If your in Renton you should give it a try.

We arrived just after 9PM on Sunday. Closing time is 10PM. The grill closes at 9PM each night. There's no notice outside the restaurant. One finds out once going through the line to get food. The sushi bar was very limited, about 1/4 available. The food quality was average. Food selection overall was the slimmest of any buffets I've been... More

I went on two occasions and the food was awful. Not a big selection for vegetarians unless you're the type of vegetarian that eats only salads. I'm truly perplexed at the reviews that say it's quality. If I were to grade on flavor and cleanliness, I'd sadly have to give them a "D -." The food was just awful.

It's hard to go wrong when you have unlimited crab, sushi, a Japanese style grill, and all you can eat Chinese food. Everyone had different tastes and interests, and it was fun to see the choices everyone made. Oh, and it's affordable!

Two things it has going for it is that it is fairly clean and they keep the trays full. Unfortunately, what they keep the trays full of is... sub-optimal. Chinese food, frozen pizza, mac and cheese, sushi, something that may have been an enchilada? A definite case of going for quantity over quality. Seems to be a decent business plan... More

The selection is large enough for a buffet. More importantly, the quality and freshness are very good. I work at an office nearby. When I have a meeting with guests from as far as Europe, an informal lunch at this restaurant usually receives high praises.

I looked at the menu on Trip Advisor for early Sunday afternoon and the actual price was almost twice as much as shown at this buffet. The menu says $8.99 before 4 pm but it was almost $16 all day on Sunday. It wasn't worth it.

This restaurant is ALL YOU CAN EAT. They have so many variant of menu. I like to eat king crab and I think they have a specialty for that. They also have a BBQ and so many variant of Sushi. A price not include a drink and tax.

Large selection of foods, including crab, and prawns, and all the favorite Chinese foods.Large salad table, too many choices of desserts, I nearly died from trying to sample everything, and there was even sushi! Price was very reasonable too.Only drawback: somewhat grubby looking, but I came to eat the food, not the walls, and I would love to go there... More
