My family really likes this place. As with most buffets, it is a bit expensive, but the restaurant makes up for that in the variety it offers. One reviewer complained about the same items being offered night after night. Well, I certainly cannot afford to feed my family there night after night and when we only go once every six weeks or so, we immediately look for our favorite items. So, for my family, the "same old thing" isn't so bad. My family especially likes the sweet and sour chicken, coconut shrimp and teriyaki chicken skewers. The sushi bar has recently been expanded and improved but I am not sure they are using less rice/more meat in each roll. I like the sushi, but, for me, it is an excuse to eat wasabi...I simply love it. If you like eating at Chinese buffets, you really should try this place at least once. I have eaten at plenty of Chinese buffets and some don't keep the food fresh or just let it bake under the lamps without getting stirred. Lucky is good about both fresh food and maintaining the line stirred and clean. As with any restaurant, just look at how many people are frequenting it and you should have good indication of whether the place is worth a try. For what it's worth, my family has been to LB on multiple occasions when an Asian bus tour has dropped off their load for dinner. If that doesn't tell you something, I don't know what will.
Though they almost always have the same items night after night, The food is for the most part well prepared and the restaurant tries to keep as much fresh food out as possible. The waitresses are usually pretty attentive and the price is competetive. Saturday and Sunday buffet dinners are an increased price.
It's not a tremendously small location and there is plenty of elbow room at the buffet tables. The only gripe I might make is do not take their "sushi" for real authentic sushi. It's mostly vegetabes and rice. The desert buffet could be a bit better, usually the same items night after night as well, but there is ice cream.
Overall Lucky Buffet is not a bad experience for those wanting to enjoy helping themselves to dinner items without the hassle of ordering what everyone wants. I give it between 3 and 4 stars ^.^
