Exceeds Expectations in both quality and quantity for not being priced as a Forbes five Star Rating !! I'm not a worker or related to Sterling Coney Island. After reading other negative or financial reviews, we were prepared for our good and we're not disappointed with the food, service, or prices. The meal was amazingly fresh, always over filling, and plenty to take home, - first time with so much healthier food and at a better price than at National’s and won't be our last. We now travel past National’s by about five miles to enjoy breakfast and dinner, at somewhat of slow service to get order in that is not an issue to us because the food makes it to the table not to long after the order. We enjoy the service because there are usually not very many people dinning to hesitate on any part of our service. Being a small restaurant hidden near the end of a low populated basically appears to be out of business strip mall, the atmosphere is not too much of an electric charm and probably they are struggling to make ends meet with rent. The primary automotive related fast food carry out business there is telephone related to the waitress’s services, but we make sure to give our waitress an extra tip for her attention even though we now read about the owner problems. We have not had any problem being locked out before closing and I am thankful to a friend who recommended eating there as I would. If you are in a rush you may want to phone in your order in advance. If there was a complaint at this time, I would say there is no desert, but we are there for the more healthy food that exceeds National’s by far and because they offer those dinners that the other does not. However slow to order, the waitress service is still fantastic during the meal - sometimes, the chef or owner actually hand delivers some dishes and with extras - nice touch. We love the Tuna Salad with spinach added. You probably know us by this description, but money is not an issue especially when you can use monthly 20% off coupons. Here's the math: If a grilled cheese sandwich cost $3.49 at 20% off (.698 cents). Than 3.49 - .698 off = $2.79 there is no change in the cost and is cheaper than buying the same at National's. Senior discount of 10% at $3.14 is for a hot sandwich and you get all the facility basically to your self. Someone has to pay the bills, but I for one do not know how this restaurant can survive without raising prices competitively. My tip 20-40 % is more than the item itself. There is a help wanted sign for dining services, but they may not be enough customers to earn much tips, so it is probably not easy to keep many workers. Started visit in November 2014. Have been back many times every week since. Good job Sterling Coney Island!!! ‹(•¿•)› .•:* ̈ ̈*:•.*-:¦:-•:*A+**FANTASTIC FOUR STARS**A-*-:¦:-•*•:* ̈ ̈*:•..•:* ̈ ̈*:•.
Thought this place was pretty good. I think it's pathetic that others are judging a new restaurant based on not having stuff like crab legs on Sundays and comparing it with the other buffet placed Fuji on John R. Price is much less, they have pretty good, good sushi and a little BBQ/grill area where you can choose what you want and they will grill it for you. It's half the price of Fuji and doesn't offer all that Fuji has, but we liked what they offered. Try it before you try to judge it. Having crab legs is not the end of the world, but if it is for you on a Sunday and they may not have it then damn, drive down to Fuji! LOL
Every time I've been to Washington, DC I've been amazed with how many Chinese buffets they have and wondered why no one opened one here. They have and it's very good! Hibachi Buffet has a great variety of foods, including stuff kids will like, and a friendly staff al at a great price. Don't let your fingers take more than your stomach can (it's easy to do) because that's a waste and they will charge you extra for wasting. Highly recommended.
