Great family eatery, Always been my mothers favorite place. Staff very attentive, great variety of foods from sushi to spicy oriental. Fresh fruits and kid friendly desserts. Large seating room was a plus for our group.

Not sure what the rave reviews are about. This place is not so great. We grabbed food to go and it went...in the garbage. We will never go back.

Dinner only cost about $11 per person. There was a nice selection of foods on the buffet. I really enjoyed the chow mein and sesame chicken. Decent quality food for a decent price. Servers were a little bit slow, but friendly.

Perfect stop for a quick but yummy dinner. They have sushi bar that was really good. There is a wide array of different types of food.
