    Great value. Courteous and attentive staff. Love the full bat, even though we stuck with beer. Parking can be adventurous though.

    Second time coming to this location and we got more stuffed than the last time! So happy all you can eat buffet is back, our server was very attentive and recommended some items. Drinks were also good, we got both mango alcohol drinks.

    We got their at 915 for our reservation. They rushed us because they closed at 1030pm that’s not our fault. They didn’t have to take our reservation but they did. So we didn’t get to enjoy our full meal experience.

    The food was amazing as always! No issue with that. The only small issue I had was the service. The waiters was nice it’s just the service was pretty slow and it wasn’t very busy. But nonetheless if it were a staffing issue then that’s understandable

    I think me and my best friend were the only ones in the restaurant, they seated us right away and we made it on time for happy hour. Server recommended his favorite dish from the new spicy menu and we ended up liking the dish. The meats were extremely good and the servers were attentive to us. The ambiance is very modern compared to other locations. I did like the fact that they have a mini bar, very convenient for a quick lunch and drink.

    Stopped in for a dad/daughter dinner. At first told not taking any walk ins so mad reservation on OpenTable in 90 seconds in front of hostess and said "Look,now I have a reservation!" So strange and stupid. Service after that was awesome by Jocelyn afterwards. Food was really good as well on the All You Can eat. Standouts we're the garlic mushrooms, cold tofu, garlic shrimp and almost all the beef dishes (daughter had two ice creams which are also included along with s'mores for dessert.) Three levels of Price points for the all you can eat, we did the bottom tier which includes 37 choices. Thought it was a good value at $52 for adults and $26 for kids 12 and under. When bill came was for two adults so had to ask to adjust which they happily did. Will repeat here or any of their many LA locations. Giving 4 stars because of almost not getting seated.

    Had Father’s Day dinner here, Great food, little pricey. Was busy so can understand waitress was very busy, but service was fine. Would recommend to anyone, will be coming back for special occasions. Waiting for Cerritos location to get back to normal hours, since that one is closer to my house.

    We were told by our waiter that they were backed up in the kitchen so we literally had to ask for our food as soon as we received the 1st order because by the time our food arrived again it would be like 15 mins later. Other than that our experience was great. I will try it again and hopefully the kitchen is not backed up. By the way the smoothie of triple berry was incredibly delicious.
