Didnt get sick because I walked out. I have eaten at its branches more than 2000 times, many people can corroborate that statement. In that time I am sure I have had a bad bowl but sometimes the spice of the lime and the chicken dont agree... See More with someones system but thats not food poisoning. I have a condition that I am allergic to a lot of seafood/fish and other items so I have experienced food poisoning more times than I would like in a lifetime. But my complaint to them is at this location. I walked in at 6:30pm and no one in the place and the worker continued to clean in front of me for 7 minutes before I asked if anyone was going to help me. He said when I am done cleaning which was like 1 minute later, then proceeded to want to serve my food with the same gloves and not wash his hands. Then I said you have to be kidding me and I asked for the manager and he replied he was the manager and so I walked out. I will be reporting this to the district manager for his area. See Less

Why would you eat the food after seeing this…?

I am OP and I honestly don’t appreciate the tone of this. I already feel stupid enough as it is. I very nearly did not make a claim on here because I was embarrassed.

If you really most know why, when my brain finally connected the dots as to what I had just witnessed I had already eaten some of the food. I brought it up with the people I went out to eat with and they all assured me it was fine and that the temp of the food was enough to kill salmonella on contact. They all said that when he set his spatula down on or near the grill the heat from the cooktop would be enough to kill it, that the food was too hot for salmonella to survive, and that all hibachi does it this way so not to worry.

I guess I figured that if this is the way it’s done then it must be okay, must be too hot of a process for anything to survive if it’s still steaming once it’s on the plate. After all the griddle is hot enough to cook the food in front of you within like, a couple minutes, and you can feel the heat of it from where you’re sitting.

Well four days later and I’m still screwed up. Every night I’m retching and my stomach is still on fire all of the time.

OP - I agree with you 100%. Do NOT feel embarrassed. When you are out for dinner there can be a lot of distractions, and some things are not obviously harmful. So sorry to hear what happened, and sorry it's lasting so long 😞

My family of five has been here since 11/18. The vomiting and diarrhea hit 4/5 of us so far and has been going on for 36 hours straight. My four year old and seven year old along with myself got sick after eat at the buffet for... See More lunch 11/21. My 18 month old has had diarrhea since 11/20 and started vomiting this morning 11/23. I am pretty certain the baby is sick from swallowing water in the pool or bath. This is absolutely devastating to watch my kids so sick while we’re supposed to be on the trip of a lifetime. The staff doesn’t seem to understand or care because of the language barrier. All but one staff member (a manager) has dismissed our requests for bottled water and 7up. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!
The food at this place will honestly haunt me for months. Everything smells funny! The buffet is so unsanitary, don’t understand how they pass inspections with food sitting out for hours without being iced/chilled. I’ve never wanted a plain peanut butter and jelly sandwich so bad in my life! Can’t wait to go home. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting
