“Great food, all you can eat buffet”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Didn't know what we were in for when we got there. We ordered the buffet which is $20 dollars a person. The food and the service is incredible. Jackie was our waiter and he was very attentive. We had the spicy calamari, beef, shrimp. When it came it was all raw but there is a grill at the table and everything cooks up quick. Frank, the proprietor, is a nice man. Would I recommend this place and eat there again. HECK YEAH!

“A family favorite!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Been to a few kbb places. So far, this place is fast becoming a family favorite. The selection is almost the same with other places. Lunch is different from dinner in regards to price due to the selection. The service is fast and the servers are friendly. The price is a little cheaper compared to few we've been in the past. Will be back for more when the craving arises. Be prepared to wait, especially during dinner. But it's worth the wait.

“Keep it coming!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A group of 12 descended on this restaurant to put it to the test. We waited a few minutes before we were seated as there was a crowd of people lined up outside. (there's not much space inside, unless you want to watch people eat. when you're starving, you don't want to do that.) We serpentined through the smokey filled bottom floor and up the stairs to our table with a view outside. Perfect view, perfect location. It's crowded most of the time so get there early and be prepared to wait.

The waiter came quickly and suggested food for us since we didn't know where to start. "Bring it all" was one person's quote, but cooler heads prevailed and ordered conservatively at the beginning. We could always order more! Our three burners were working hard to keep up with what we put on it. The anticipation and fragrances from the stoves were killing us all! The servers were attentive and replaced the stove tops on a regular basis to give us clean cooking surfaces.

It's a great place, awesome location, and even better food!

“Good food”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Good food. Good services and price is very reasonable. Will definitely come back again. Went there last week and didn't have to wait long at all since the area is quite big.
