I stopped by the restaurant in the former China Garden location on Industrial Road  (and before that, it was IV’s, if you’ll recall), and the interior has gotten a nice renovation. Most of the booths have been taken out in the dining room and replaced by tables, giving it a more open floor plan.

The owners are Haiwei Zhou and his wife, Nancy. You may remember Haiwei – he was most recently the manager at Mount Fuji, and he’s been in the restaurant business for  quite a few years. Nancy also has restaurant experience, having worked at China Capital and Kyoto.

Anyway, the restaurant has a buffet, but you can also order off the menu, which has a selection of – you guessed it – Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Yes, that means there will be sushi. And stuff from the hibachi grill.

Hours are Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A lunch buffet will be available daily from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The phone number is (662) 842-1688 and the fax is 842-4528.
