I came here while my Kia was in the Kia dealer shop for maintenance. Its an easy walk and beats waiting in a wait room.
This place is BIG. There are 10 islands full of food. So its much larger than many Asian Buffets. The Asian buffet in Franklin NC where I live is only 3 of these islands, so less than 1/3 the size. Its so large its hard to see whats where, as its all over the place.
The price is $8.99. Asheville can be a little pricey so this is good. Id say the quality of food is average. Ive been to many better, and some worse. There wasnt a lot of food I wanted to go back for more, You should though find enough to eat with the choices. Plus there are loads of desserts. Lunch buffet goes to 3:45pm too so no need to rush. Domestic beer is only $2.95 also. Not bad for a restaurant in Asheville
We decided to give another Chinese buffet a try after swearing we would never go back to Asiana again. Asiana, as foul as it is, is a Michelin Star restaurant compared to Shogun.
Nothing was appealing, nothing was hot, no tray was even half full. The few things I was brave enough to try were soft, soggy and tasteless except for the stuff that was entirely too salty. I usually at least try to get my money's worth at the sushi bar but there was one tray with what looked like last week's leftovers sitting there developing hard crusty edges while I watched. No thanks.
Even with the water bubbling and steaming under the trays, none of the food was hot. The wait staff seemed completely disinterested, as did the woman at the register when we complained. I should have known I was in for trouble when I picked up the first cheap plastic plate.
As we were getting ready to leave, a customer who had left the restaurant previously came back in and began taking pictures of the ceiling right over the food area. We were curious so took a look on the way to the register and saw that he was taking pics of a huge black mold covered vent! SO DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!
Believe me, in this town you CAN find a lot of great food for the same price or lower so a small budget is no excuse. Do yourself a huge favor and NEVER EAT HERE. We should never have sat down but I can promise you we'll never be back.
Not great and very overpriced at dinner. If you must do a buffet there are better options within 10 miles. I'm not comfortable with the sanitation either. The dessert bar was not something I would ever eat from. I've had better wonton soup from a can.
Chinese buffet. Traveling to Asheville we decided to stop off and try shogun. It's actually quite the large place. It was clean and well appointed for such a large place. The dinner buffet set as back $13 and came with quite the array of Asian fare. They also have a hibachi station in back where you can pick out your raw food and have it cooked in front of you. Sushi options were also available. The service was friendly and the food quite good for a Chinese buffet. Highly recommend.
This buffet will cost you about $10.
They have a lot of choices but I wasn't necessarily a fan of most. Believe it or not, they had ham and I liked it the best.
My favorite thing at a Chinese buffet is honey chicken. They had something labeled as honey chicken and it was orange. Like an idiot I grabbed a bunch. It has MUSTARD. If you knew me, you would know that mustard is my arch nemesis!! Hah
So needless to say, I was not happy.
Otherwise, I'm sure people enjoy this place, I just wasn't the biggest fan.
