Sometimes a trip to a restaurant is as much about the atmosphere, ambience and presentation as it is the food selection and taste. If you're looking for the former, this isn't the place for you; but based on the constant fullness of these cafeteria-like eateries, the former is in the minority. Similar to most Asian-style buffets, U-Like separates itself by having pretty much anything you could ask for. And that includes a steady flow of fresh (for Tucson, that is) sushi, as well as stations where you can have your own pho bowl or hibachi-steamed meal. Take a visit there with a group of large appetites, or just as a slovenly solo, and you'll find yourself understanding U-Like's no frills name.
