i like to think that my good qualities outweigh my bad, but the worst quality about me is the fact that i hate trying new things. don't get me wrong, i love to try new restaurants but i'll only order things that are familiar or that i've had somewhere else. my husband hates that about me and usually forces me to try whatever new/outrageous that he's ordered. so when we found this restaurant after going to the movies down the street, i was super stoked. a cool restaurant in matteson? who woulda thunk?!i was all set to order what i normally order at chinese food places- fried rice or chow mein with some crab rangoons. my husband decides he wants to order some "rolls" (i really had no idea what the heck they were and was ridiculously scared of what was going to appear in front of us.) he ordered the crunchy crab roll and the spicy tuna maki and so we decided that we'd split them as an appetizer. i have to say that stepping outside of the box really paid off this time. i preferred the crunchy crab to the spicy tuna mainly just because of the texture. i almost wish we would have ordered another one for the road. both rolls were pretty filling so we ordered the shrimp pad thai to split. i wasn't really a fan of that, but my husband loved it.when we got the bill and found it was only $27, i was elated. i've already told a few friends about it and will definitely come back soon-- actually i plan on going back later this week. maybe next time, i'll try the hibachi grill.

This is by far the WORST establishment that I have ever been to. Upon getting to A. Fusion for a friends birthday party I sat at the bar. I asked to see the drink menu and ordered a Mai Tai from the menu. The price listed on the menu was $7 dollars, but when my bill came the bill said $10. I was confused so I asked why was I being charged more? The bartender stated after hours drinks were more. However the price listed from the menu I ordered should have had precedence as it was her mistake for giving me the menu. I spoke with manager and owner who stated there was nothing they could do to rectify the situation. The price of the drink wasn't the issue as I frequently patron restaurants and bars that cost at least $10 for drinks. It was the fact that they didn't honor their mistake. On top of that, the crowd was predominately African American and no where visible was their signage that stated drinks or the menu increased after hours. This leads me to believe that they charge African Americans more to patron their establishment after hours and its a racist establishment. I will NEVER go back to establishment where they don't acknowledge their mistakes and would caution others to look into my acknowledgment of how they treat us as if our business isn't valuable and they can charge us more to patron theory establishment. I boycott a.fusion. I will stick with Ron of Japan or Hamada's!

I am on a special meat diet so anytime I can find a Chinese buffet for a good price with plenty of options, I am happy. I used to go to another Chinese buffet that was a cuple of miles from my office. It went out of business around Thanksgiving so I found another Chinese hole in the wall place that was more expensive and nowhere near as good. By chance, a lady in my office was leaving and we had a going away party for her at this place. It is only like 200 yards from my office. The buffet was really good and had tons of options. The food was good, hot, and fresh. I have gone back on two other occasions (today in fact) and had the same experience.This places does other things than a buffet, but that is all I have used so that is all I can write about.
