Best Asian Buffet in Marietta/Kennesaw – Marietta finally has an excellent asian buffet. Unlike the grimey and red-districty feel of other similar-themed buffets, Pacific Buffet features a very open and clean layout. The water fountain that greets you upon entance immediately alerts you that you're in for an entirely different buffet dining experience.
The seating is dark and contemporary leather, you sit at well-matched dark wood tables with an eccletic feel. Our server was attentive yet unintrusive, at no point did dirty dishes pile up.
One of the key differences between this buffet and other buffets that I've been to is the presence of the cooks out in the open. This has two very awesome benefits - it puts you in direct contact with the individuals making the food as opposed to the mysterious backroom kitchens at most other buffets and it ensures that there is a dedicated indivdiual actively attending to the quality of the food in the steam trays. The food was fresh and featured an extremely diverse mixture of Americana, seafood (e.g. fresh oysters, mussels, octapus, crab legs, shrimp), steak, classic Sinoamerican poultry dishes (e.g. General Tso's Chicken and Honey Chicken were two exceptional shout-outs). The salad and fresh fruit were ripe and delicious. There were four soups (Wanton, Egg Drop, Miso, and Hot & Sour) and an assortment of authentic steamed rolls/etc.
The sushi was simply outstanding - equally on par to sushi offered at other restaurants around Kennesaw/Marietta. There were two sushi chefs making fresh sushi and easily twenty different varieties of Maki rolls and Nigiri. You would easily spend the same amount of money for a premium sushi Maki roll for what the entire buffet costs.
The deserts all appeared to be equally fresh and made on premises. I was too full to sample, but my wife assured me that they were quite good. A particular favorite for her was the ice cream (what you would expect from a Ben & Jerry's or Baskin Robins) and the blueberry cake.)
Cost/Benefit: We went on a week night and it cost 10.99 per person. I would have gladly paid twice that amount for the quality and variety of the food on the buffet.
The final and important call out were the restrooms, which was one of the most interesting lavoratories I have ever been in. There was an hourly cleanup board that was clearly attentively followed. The restroom was immaculate and nicely lit with a sky-like ceiling (you have to see it to understand what I'm talking about). The pop music was a little loud, but I didn't spend much time in the restroom so it didn't grate on my ears too much.
Previous experiences at Asian-themed buffets have left me begging my wife to never let me talk her into letting me go to them again. This was absolutely the exception that blew the rest of them away. Suffice to say that if the Pacific Buffet Sushi and Grill continues to maintain the superb level of quality and service we enjoyed tonight, it will become our go-to place for inexpensive and delicious Sinoamerican cuisine.
Amazing – The first time I went into this was blown away. The food was awesome. The second time was almost as good, the third, okay, and the last 3 times was times was awful. The food was over cooked, the restaurant was dirty, restrooms filthy, not a good experience. They need to go back to their roots. It was good once.
Setting the bar high for chinese buffets – My wife works near this place and recommended it as she had been there once before. The dishes tasted good. Plenty to choose from and nicely displayed. The entrance was nice and made you feel like you were entering a higher end restaurant.
The sushi selection was larger than any place i have ever been. (buffet wise). The portions were a little small but there was plenty to choose from and you could take all you wanted.
The soy sauce was incredibly salty. The low sodium was decent, but the container was spilling while filling my cup. (I am sure this was an oversight and has been fixed)
Overall, I will be back and will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
