This establishment being a seafood buffet, does offer crawfish, shrimp, oysters, sushi and sashimi. If you attend Friday through Sunday you may be lucky enough to get pieces of lobster claws and small pieces of lobster tail. They do offer snow crab legs sometimes, but they take too long in between to put them out for the customers. When they do put them out, it's only a handful of pieces. You will find other typical buffet food as well. They used to add the tip on to your bill automatically, but they have done away with that. Thank God. They are located in a busy area, so parking can be a bit challenging. I prefer going there during the winter because during the summer they tend to be stingy on the air-conditioning.
Fair prices (besides drinks)
Accommodation for children (including discounts)
Desert area (though limited)
Dinner service (offer king crab legs and duck)
Food is decent (hit or miss depending on what you get)
Limited choices on sweet foods (used to be much more diverse with deserts)
Prices during "peak" hours (jump by 6-7$ per person even when the place isn't really busy)
Overall it's exactly what you can expect from a buffet. The food is hit or miss, the options in some areas are somewhat limited, but it's still a great place to go with a group of people. Also the service at peak hours and during normal hours is 100% fantastic. I definitely would recommend this place for larger groups of 3+ people.
This restaurant is near our home. We went weekdays so it is cheaper. What I don't like was we were not yet finish eating and we were still on the table the lady gave us a bill. I think that is not the proper way to do that because when the lady handed the bill its a sign that she wanted us to leave or finish eating. The food was good. Their desserts are good. The restaurant is big very spacious. It is good to go weekdays because less people. We will definitelt go back but i hope they stop giving bills while the customer is still eating.
I have come to this restaurant on several occasions and usually with someone. Today I came all by myself and was caught off guard by how crowded it was. The United Chinese Assoc. of Brooklyn was having a celebration. So that being said seating did seem to be a bit of a balancing act for the hostess. I was seated at a four person table with only three chairs. As I began consuming my fair share of hot buffet items and soup offerings, the seating became a bit of an issue I felt. So much so I offered to share my table to accommodate a group of monks. However they were seated, albeit apart three at one table and four at another. Then I finally surrendered my table to a family so that they had enough room to enjoy their meal. Does this sound like a bit too much, yes it does but in the realm of all the chaos of life it was a trivial matter. Why post it if that's the case you are asking yourself..to just be able to say that this establishment with its overcrowded atmosphere had an abundant assortment of items that satisfied all patrons..fish, beef, pork, shrimp salad, sushi soup, fresh fruit..and left this reviewer quite fulfilled and appreciated the wait staff who ensured my needs were met with a smile. Take the time to see for yourself and Hearty appetite!
It is a pretty decent buffet in terms of price and food quality. Lobster is on their regular menu but I have only come here on weekends. Staff is friendly and service is quick. Seating area has large round tables for family gathering. There is also a spacious party room in the back. Taking one star off because I think they need someone to monitor the food area to clean up and make sure utensils are not running out, etc.
