“Fresh, appetizing, great selection”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Not your ordinary buffet. This gastroextraveganza of sushi, sashimi, rolls and traditional Chinese menu items are presented in a modern, clean, inviting atmosphere.

“The worst food I have ever attempted to eat!!!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

A friend recommended this place today, December 7, 2013. It is by far, the worst Japanese buffet I have ever been to! The spinach sushi they offered was dry and hard. Other sushi was not fresh and some of it virtually tasteless. The lobster cantonese was in a sauce that was not a cantonese sauce. The chicken was the cheapest cuts of meat available. The steamed fish was a variety that I could not identify. Not talapia…in fact, I hope it did not come from one of the contaminated fish places in China. Even the red bean ice cream was nearly tasteless, and, had no red beans in it. It just seemed that everything was of the cheapest quality available.

What I should have realized is when you go to a restaurant in SE Florida, on a weekend in season, and, there is no waiting, they seat you right away because the place is half empty, there must be something wrong.

This place is great if you just want to eat until you explode and don't care about what you are eating. If you want a good Japanese buffet, then I suggest either the one in Boca Raton, on Glade Road near the Florida Turnpike, or, there is another one on Powerline Road in Boca. The price is about the same and they food is great, and a much larger selection.

One problem in this place is they did not replace an item until the very last piece was gone. Other places replenish the food when it is just a little over half gone.

I rarely rant and rave about a place, but, I can only say for those who have stated they love this place, maybe you should try one of the other places and you will see the difference.

“Amazing Value, Fresh Sushi, Wide Variety + Teppanyaki”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Have dined here over a dozen times and the place never disappoints. You cannot find a better value in South Florida if you crave sushi, especially at lunch time. The dinner buffet is substantially expanded (e.g. raw oysters, cold snow crab legs, garlic lobster, etc.). Several types of salad/soup and even a fried/baked/teppanyaki section for those faint of heart with raw seafood. Fairly large dining area has accommodated a group of 14 friends before. The service is attentive and friendly; they quickly take your beverage order as soon as you are seated. A nice selection of desserts and ice cream are included. Have encountered a rare disappointment in the fried/grilled food section, but hey, this is a buffet. GORGEFEST time!

“Best buffet in the area of any kind”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

The place is clean and neat. The food is fresh and tasty without a lot of over sweet and floury toppings. Great sushi and sashimi, lots of shrimp and crab legs. The salads are well done. Even the traditional Chinese entries such as ribs and dumplings are presented well.
Yes this is a buffet, but the food compares to the best of the sit down Chinese and Japanese restaurants in palm beach county.

“Excellent All You Can Eat Sushi”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I visited this restaurant about 6 months ago and am happy to report that it is still just as good as ever. The raw fish is very fresh with a large selection. There are many choices of sushi from vegetarian to caviar. Four choices of soups and a large selection of hot dishes. Also a stir fry station to create your own meal. They also offer chilled shrimp, crab legs and oysters. A small selection of desert including some fresh fruit, jello, substantial selection of pastries and several ice cream flavours round off your meal. The service is pleasant and efficient.
