very boisterous atmosphere with plenty of noise and customers. all food is served for a one-price ($20/person) buffet. chinese food is good, sushi is disappointing, soups are good, salads/desserts are okay. this place seems to cater to local palates re: flavors and tastes and it does an excellent job of it. if you are looking for a decent meal in a local favorite, this may be the place for you.
