Food was horrible, prices were high for the crap they served...and don't get me started on the wait-staff. I'm surprised I got the drinks I ordered.

I've been here many times when I had no idea of what I want to eat. The food was ok, more like just edible...but the service sucks so bad! Kinda rude actually.. I took my friends here once and that's it, they hated the service and I'll never bring them back here ever again. Too bad cuz it's a buffet, they don't really have to work as much as other restaurant. So I don't understand what's wrong with them. The manager or whoever in charge should take a good look at it or they will keep losing good customers.

Nice looking place, but that's about it. The servers are beyond miserable, they overcharge regularly and add special upcharges whenever they feel like it. I work in the same plaza and used to stop in there to grab some takeout for lunch. Even if it is one minute over the cutoff time for the lunch price they will charge you the dinner rate - which is especially annoying when you have to wait 10 minutes for someone to walk over to the register.

On another note: if you have an allergy (especially seafood) DO NOT EAT HERE. The food is honesly downright bad on it's own - ok when you are starving and overworked but disgusting any other time. The major problem is that nothing is clearly marked to what it is. I am allergic to shrimp, I went here and grabbed a slice of pizza (rubber) vegatable lo-mein (greasy) and chicken wings (burnt). When I tried to ask the servers what was safe (as thier signs say to do) I was ignored and they simply walked away from me. About 10 minutes after eating my lunch my co-workers were pumping me full of benedryl and calling for medical help. I still don't know what had the shrimp.

Typical Big buffet place. The food was fresh, since they were always replacing the bins. The charged us wrong onthe bill and we needed to have that corrected. The prices have gone up since someone scanned the menu in. It is about a $1.00 more. Big selection. Decent food.

We went there for New Year's Day and waited ten minutes to be served beverages, at which point we hunted down a server and she was clearly not happy to be there. Later on, she charged us too much and made a face and rolled her eyes at having to change the bill. When we asked why it cost more than the listed prices, they claimed it was a "special" New Year's upcharge.
Food was fine, service was awful, it was a ripoff and the atmosphere was meager at best.

Large buffet with good food, but things are oddly placed, like seafood and desserts on same table. Aged storefront atmosphere with little service.
