Never a disappointment

I have always enjoyed Shinju. Great selection of sushi and Chinese. Desserts are ok, but fruit is always fresh. Very clean. Ice cream is a def must. Go for lunch and beat the dinner traffic. Yummy!

This place has the usual risk that buffets carry, eating too much. Regardless, it offers a very nice selection of dishes, from chicken to sushi to ribs to crab legs. Add to that green Japanese tea and a wide selection of deserts, from lychee nuts to ice cream to cheese cake miniatures.

Lots of people there, but I didn't like the food. I don't eat the Sushi, only the Chinese, which I didn't like at all. We have never returned. My wife liked the Sushi.

One of several locations in South Florida, this restaurant is always crowded. It's an all-U-can-eat buffet with stations featuring a large sushi, roll and sashimi bar, a cooked-to-order Hibachi grill, hot Chinese and Asian standards and a salad & desert bar. The food is always fresh most likely because of a large turnover due to it always is crowded. The... More

Simply superb, how they do what they do for the money they charge leaves me aghast .... Unreal, great quality, huge choice, good service and a great ambiance, all in all, one of my favourite haunts and a place where I have taken my friends, family and business associates. Don't tell them BUT I'd happily pay triple what they charge... More
