Just as predicted through ipsedixit's inside information, Gold Hibachi Buffet has opened in the old Gold Coast Buffet location near the Alhambra Costco on Commonwealth. Only open since yesterday, and without a Yelp review in sight, I dropped by at 12:30pm to find a crowd waiting to get in and passed on eating at the time. An hour later there was still a small wait but I was seated after less than 10 minutes. Grand opening special is $7.99 for weekday lunch (regular will be $8.99) and $10.99 for weekday dinner (regular $13.99) with 10 percent senior discounts. One customer was so excited she posed for a picture of herself in front of the large grand opening pricelist. Nice remodel and a clear upgrade from Golden Coast with a teppan grill, and more and bigger trays of entrees. Some items look suspiciously identical to what you get at other buffets (can you say Sysco?), but there are also some unique items, such as the Korean glass noodles and the stir fried spicy large imitation crab chunks.
