Food quality is reasonable and good for what you expect to have at volume Asian Buffet. Good variety and decent service. They cram a lot of people in tight spaces. There could be long wait sometimes. Decent Sushi Buffet with variety but don't expect A la Carter sushi quality. Overall good value

There can be a wait for weekend evening sitting, especially if you're a group larger than 4 people - it's a busy restaurant. Seating is a little cramped so you have to keep your elbows tucked in when eating lest you knock, or get knocked by, others sitting nearby or walking past. The buffet serving area is similarly cramped and... More

Best cook-to-order fresh Chinese in the Inland Empire. Bar none. Quickest service and inexpensive. Excellent Value!

We discovered this place by accident a few years ago when we were just driving through the area and were really impressed. Since then, it has become something of a tradition if we found ourselves nearby to stop for dinner, but after our last visit, it may be time for some new traditions. The food is still good, I have...

I went here for lunch and was surprised at all the seafood options. The sushi was fresh and tons of choices. Also there was oysters, crab, squid, great value!

Casual atmosphere (very) and low prices. Outstanding selection of Asian cuisine. The BEST fresh sushi and sashimi. Mongolian BBQ. Chinese, Japanese and Korean entrees. Soups. Fruit and veggie bar. Good place to go if you aren't sure what you want to eat. Lower marks for the dessert bar, but the ice cream is good.

We had requested and were assured we would have a private room for our graduation party. Showed up to find "Private" meant we were stuck in the back of the main dining area and had to wait for enough table to clear for all our guest (who luckily arrived late) On top of that there were no signs to indicate...

When we first went here we loved it and had lots of friends go there. But the last two times there it just wasn't the same. crab legs where smaller, service wasn't the same. they need to do something different for dessert. Its cookies from a box and stale. Man making sushi does not speak English. I think most of... More
