The tastiest of both Japan and China

For around $18 dollars per person you have at your finger tips a fantastic selection of sushi and a fresh selection of some of your favorite Chinese dishes. Okay, so buffet may not be... read more

I am allergic to fish but my husband loves it so even if you are a vegetarian this place has something for you. Huge buffet worth the price. Salads, shrimp, crab legs, mussels, fruit and cold salad assortment. At least 20 different types of sushi and sashimi to choose from or you can make a request. Hot food and teppenaki... More

Had visited this restaurant several times while in town but was there in July, 2015 and brought my family. They all LOVED it. The Sushi variety is great and all the food on the buffet is kept fresh. Also keep a good supply of the premium items coming, like crablegs.

I dropped into Shinju today for their buffet lunch. The hostess and staff are very friendly. They also have a nice array of cold appetizers, a salad with a Japanese ginger dressing, cold peel-and-eat shrimp and deserts. The big attraction for most people is sushi, of which I'm not honestly a big fan. Though all the food was well prepared... More

Visited Shinju with some friends and it was an ok experience. While the sushi variety is good, it is not the best sushi you can get, but it ain't bad either. As for the hot dishes they were not really hot and very mediocre. Overall, only visit this place if you want above average sushi for 20 bucks.

For my 21st birthday my boyfriend wanted to bring me to dinner that serves my favorite food, sushi. And what better way to have sushi than never ending sushi in a buffet style. One section was all Japanese food like tempura, rice, lo-main, etc. The other section was a long line of different kinds of sushi which I was willing... More

First time to this restaurant, but was very pleased. Food was good, great selection, fast service and courteous staff. Was one of the better buffet restaurants we have been to in a while. Although a little pricey, IMHO, I would eat here again if I m looking for sushi.
