The food was ok, but the service was by far the worst I have ever had. The manager yelled at some military members for asking for a military discount. The same manager yelled at a group of people with a coupon. When I say yelled, I mean

The Crazy Buffet web site defines this restaurant as fine dining, with live piano music. I have no idea which Crazy Buffet has that ambience, but it isn't the restaurant in Tampa on Dale Mabry. The environment is standard in appearance for a buffet restaurant has pendant lights that hang way too low over the tables where a head can be hit if the tables are rearranged, which is done frequently for large groups.

The food is quality is for the most part sub standard for the over priced menu buffet charge. Some food is far too salty to taste the actual item. Most items are not seasoned as Asian food should be, it is over sauced and over cooked.

The sushi sits out on a display and is room temperature, instead of cold as it should be. Most of the cooked food is luke warm, with a dry and tough texture, making the sauce the only relief to be able to eat the item on your plate.

The selections of food are not what would qualify as fusion. Asian fusion is a combination of cultures, not a buffet selection of Chinese food and a selection of sushi to define Japanese food. Japanese culture has cooked food items as well as sushi.

The cost of the buffet is far over priced for the poor customer service and poor food quality. I would suggest that you find another buffet restaurant that has quality of food in mind, not their bottom line.

Crazy Buffet deserves the Buffet of the Year Award in my book. I have eaten in many restaurants and find it to be exceptionally above the rest. Sushi variety was amazing, so many to choose from. Hot foods were full and enticing and actually HOT! Never had Peking Duck and now I am hooked! This is a great value for the small price you pay for the huge variety offered! A definite recommend to anyone looking for a warm & inviting environment to dine in.

Crazy Buffet was probably cleaner and better food as far as a buffet goes. I visited when the restaurant opened for the day and had sushi. I was sick for the rest of the day, and have not been back since. Terrible experience.

You can not beat Crazy Buffet for the price... There are better no doubt but you'll pay a lot more for your food.. This place has a nice feel to it as well as good food.... and a wide variety of food/sushi as well.
If you want some good food at a low price this is the place to go.

I have eaten at crazy buffet twice with my closest friend because she loves sushi.
I had never tried sushi before and she said it was an aquired taste. She was right.
Some I liked and some I did not. The setting of the restaurant is nice and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a new experience. I myself will also eat there again.

The food is good. The atmosphere is better than your average buffet. The service is ok. I have eaten at Crazy several times for lunch. If you do not get there early, when they run out of food they do not replace it. At the end of the lunch time there will a very limited selection.

Pros: The selection of foods.

When Crazy Buffet first opened it was REALLY good and worth every overpriced cent. The past 2 years it has gone down hill and now it is beyond horrible, the food is bad, the service disgraceful (a waitress actually threatened to drop hot food on my baby who was in a highchair as well as other extremely rude behavior and just plain lazyness) . The variety of food is seriously lacking and has become way overly americanized. The quality has become something I wouldn't feed my dog. The fillet mignon is tough and poor quality. the peking duck sat on the carving board for half an hour before anyone carved it and nothing else was readily replenished (and this was a Weeknight not a weekend). The chocolate fountain was dirty. It is really sad how bad it has gotten. This used to be my favorite restaurant, but now we will never go back.

If you are in the mood to put away some sushi, this is a good stop. My wife and I usually spend $40+ on a sushi dinner, so its nice to have a couple other things to pick at on a buffet and then get some dessert for the same price. The sushi is better than average, especially for a buffet. I wouldn't replace the local sushi stop for this, but its a good place to include on the list when you know you are hungry enough for a good buffet.

We first tried crazy buffet about a year ago. It is superb chinese buffet for a very cheap price that is hard to beat. In addition to the design and wonderful ambience of restaurant (with the piano and the classic Wok) They have crablegs which is definitely a huge bonus. If you are in the tampa area be sure to check out crazy buffet

PROS: wok, crablegs, ambience
CONS: none

I recently tried this place out on a lunch break and was very impressed. Not only is there an absolutely amazing variety of foods - but its a buffet! You don't like what you get - get something else! They serve everything from sushi to chicken teriyaki - and everything is clean. The decor in the restaurant fits the tone and the service is excellent.

I haven't yet tried this restaurant, but...I'm already a bit apprehensive. I just called to make a reservation (since it's Friday) and was told that they only take reservations for parties of 8 or more. Frankly, this is a stupid policy (only slightly better than not taking reservations at all), and is disrespectful to the customer. It's like telling someone "your time isn't important to me". The slightly manic-sounding woman on the phone wasn't particularly courteous or pleasant, either.
We'll see how it goes...

The Crazy Buffet is one of the best restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. I made the mistake of thinking this was a typical chinese buffet the first time I went but boy was I wrong. The lovely fountains and the live grand piano music really set the theme. The sushi bar was very elaborate and the "crazy wok" where they cook your stir fry to order is fantastic. On the weekends and in the evening they have a large variety of seafood like crablegs and oysters. Oh and by the way if it is your birthday then you eat for free!

This is one of those places that I could take anyone I know to and they would all eat good. They have everythign from Sushi to salad, dessert, Oriental, Hibachi, soups, full bar and lots of Seafood. I can never decide what to eat first and what not to (there is way too much variety to be able to try it all - much as I'd like to). And it's all you can eat, so if you don't like something - just get something different :-)

For such an expensive place there are too many tip jars all over the place for my taste. There are tip jars on the Sushi bar, on the grill, almost everywhere you can get food, there is a tip jar.

I am extremely happy that I chose Crazy Buffet to eat. The sushi, the salads, every single item on the buffet was excellent!! I cannot imagine a better place to dine in all of Tampa when it comes to great food,atmosphere and the price. I will continue to go back time and time again.

For a New Yorker or one who knows what authentic Chinese and Japanese cuisines taste like, this is not good enough. But I was bored in Tampa area, so this was the best I could get. I enjoyed the dining experience but once is enough.

It was great! Will definitely go back again and again. You can't possibly taste/try everything in one visit. Everything I tasted was great. Best Chinese buffet ever. How anyone could not get their moneys worth, is beyond me!

Crazy Buffet is simply a must visit place for anyone that likes Sushi. It's also got enough non-sushi food to allow you to bring friends that may not eat Sushi. If going during the day, try to get there when they open (11:30). If you get there after 12 you'll hit lines and the sushi makers fall behind. For the price, and the quality of the sushi this place is wonderful.

I had no idea what to expect the first time I went to Crazy Buffet, but I love it. You get a nice variety of foods to choose from, including a huge array of sushi. (And from the grill, my personal favorite is the garlic chicken!) If you don't like Asian foods or aren't willing to try new things, this probably isn't the restaurant for you. But if you do like that sort of thing, you'll probably be pleased. A little pricey, but worth it, in my opinion.

It was a shock to walk out of an all you can eat buffet with my best bud and 50bucks lighter than when I walked in...but I think it was worth it. Since I moved to FL, I have not found Chinese food thatdoesn't remind me of the goo you get in a shopping mall food court. Crazy Buffet has everything your little heart desires, including great sushi, seafood, soups, and an area where you pick your veggies, meat, and sauce out for them to cook up for you. Thrown into the deal is a quiet atmosphere, as well as a fine dining feel. I love it, so maybe I'm a little biased....
