They have an awesome selection of sushi and a diverse collection of other dishes. We always enjoy the food. The service is always great and the decor is good.

We enjoy the food here typically. My husband loves the hibachi! But... the cleanliness of the dining rooms is awful! The carpet has food ground into it and is heavily stained. The curtains behind our booth had food on them and the walls in our booth had food on them. The condiments on the table where sticky with old food stuck on them. Also the smell of the place is not of food but of an old stale 1970s trailer. You can smell the dirty carpets as soon as you walk in. I hope this doesn't sound mean but it is so bad that we will not be back. The food is great but can't stomach having to sit and eat here anymore. I hope these issues are addressed so we can come back! ?

I've never had to wait here. Even on a busy weekend. Prices are decent for kids but it doesn't come with a drink. Love the food. Always hot.

I'm in the Boise area every other week on business. I usually make an effort to eat at City Buffet. It's a relaxed setting with good service. It's a clean restaurant with a large selection of food. While they have a Mongolian BBQ, I have never tried it. I generally stick to the Chinese food and the Sushi. The pricing is competitive and the food is well worth it. It is worth checking out.

So surprised we have never tried this buffet before. We always have stuck to what we know. I think this is my new favorite Chinese buffet experience though as it had everything from American dishes to sushi to authentic Chinese to Mongolian cooking. There were some dishes I had not seen before and the quality of everything was amazing. We had a great time and enjoyed the environment and the staff. Definitely my new favorite! Must go if you're craving a wide variety of cuisine :-)

Some of the food lacked flavor but for the most part everything was great! I don't eat seafood but according to everyone else in our group that was the best part. My personal favorite was the button mushrooms and orange chicken. Staff was nice and we were seated fast. I'm sure we will visit again soon.Kid-friendliness: They had chicken wings, French fries, pizza and other kid friendly items.Parking: Strip mall parking lotWheelchair accessibility: Buffet lines were spaced well apart with plenty of room for a wheel chair or other

Great Chinese and Mongolian, don't forget the sushi. Busy times nights and weekends.

I wanted to like this place but I couldn't. The food is terribly overcooked and dry. The only time any one comes to your table is to bring the check.

Always a full stomach leaving this place!The food is always well stocked on the buffet, but hit or miss on if you get fresh or the end of the last batch.The sushi selection is great, but can get a little jumbled. Make sure to check it multiple times to get the best selection(All Cali, All Philly, All Specialty, and then All tempura).OMG the crowds! Peak hours are going to be crowded with a wait. We waited for about 15 minutes on Father's Day, so you can easily expect less. Just don't expect a seat at peak hours! :)

We live in Meridian and usually go to the Boise City Buffet because it is so good. This time we decided to try the Nampa location and we were definitely impressed. The food quality was great as well as the service. The only downfall was the crowd, it was pretty busy but definitely worth it

Such a huge selection. My expectations for quality were low but I was pleasantly surprised. The sushi was delicious and everything I tried was hot, prepared well, and tasted great. Service was also quick and responsive. Refills came quickly and we never had more than one plate in front of us. And rather than just take a plate that seemed ready to be cleared, each server would ask if they could take it and they made sure to leave ask us to take our fork before they took the plate...nice. Very nice experience.

Enjoyed all the delicious fresh food. The fish is fresh with lovely flavors. The soups are to die for, the Sushi is so tasty and they don't loaded up with rice. I also had the Mongolian stir fry yummy. You can set up your own plate with a great selection of meats, vegetables, noodles and flavorful sauces. They have fresh fruit, salads, shrimp cocktails with lemon and sauce and a fun dessert selection cakes,cookies,ice creams. Next time we go again I'll post pictures. The service is good everyone is so sweet. My only concern is that they need to keep the eating area cleaner. Good place to try non the less.

This is one of my family's favorite places to eat after a long workout! There is something for everyone, and the sushi is actually great, I've eaten it probably a dozen times. We enjoy that the buffet is fully stocked every visit, and the employees are very wonderful. I recommend! Also, there is a gym AND a mattress store right next to it... just in case you might need one of the two afterward. Ha!

Good food, enjoyed the many items to choose from.. Love the sushi bar! wish there was more beef and pork dishes..most dishes are chicken or seafood based. Prices are higher for dinner but lunch is a pretty good deal.
