Hanami is grown in popularity with the local crowd and that has effected their ability to meet demand. I have eaten here many many times and enjoy the economics of being a Gold Card Member. Although I enjoyed the freestyle initial set-up of taking what you want when you want it, the place is still a good deal with a diverse Buffet. I particularly like the grilled dishes, sushi, and Soups. I can pick and choose from different ranges of cuisine. While the food quality is good to very good, it is not spectacular. I guess that comes with the price for a buffet of this size. Staff are always top-notch and helpful, very rare for Phnom Penh. You just have to avoid weekend nights, it is way too crowded and the food runs dry quick as the locals pile it on. Then is becomes very unpleasant.

The famous saying by Yogi Berra come to mind. On a weekend night it is like a mad school cafeteria where you have to elbow out the crowd for food. The Buffet is scarce of any quality dishes, I could find any sashmi and sushi for most of the night, it get scooped up immediately. You have to place a clothespin with the station to order a quality dish and hope it come in a reasonable time. What started out as an excellent concept as gone wrong. It is a madhouse. They either need to raise prices or put a buffet on the second floor so you have access to the food you PAY FOR!

Low end Japanese seafood buffet. The old +$1 to make beer inclusive is now $1.50 PER BEER. Quite a change around.and makes this much worse value.

Service was good.

Great food, service, atmosphere. Well priced. Each wait staff was super courteous and genuine. Great for lunch, $8 if I remember well.

Love the buffet there. A bit disappointed with the lasagna. This is not the best food we ever had, but service, choice and atmosphere were terrific.
