ISO Upscale Asian Brunch Buffets

It's always fun to sample a wide variety of dishes at Asian places as I've had a chance to do over the years when chowing with larger groups. You can then favor the dishes you like best among those sampled.

But what to do by yourself or with a small party? While there are no shortage of upscale American and seafood brunch buffets ranging to $75 pp & higher, when it comes to Asian -- Indian, Japanese & Chinese, for example -- all the buffets I've tried seem to compromise quality in favor of quantity and low prices. I do realize the challenges with keeping prepared dishes fresh and not overcooked, but maybe my choice of restaurants has been poor.

So, is anyone aware of exceptions to the rule, i.e., upscale Asian buffets where quality of ingredients, skill of preparation and breadth of selection trump mere quantity at low prices?
