As well there is a long buffet line of Chinese foods and also a separate hibachi grill. They grilled me up some steak to go with my steak... More

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.

Like a wine "common sewer" (I can't spell the French version of the word!), a suchi/sachimi expert rants and raves about their $200 meal. Better fish, better preparation etc. In my opinion, most of the hype is contrived and ridiculous! Go to Shinju and just take in the ambiance of the restaurant, the limited but exquisite selection of shush, sashimi,... More

In addition they had a nice buffet from shrimp to wings. Lunch time is busy with Nova University close by, but it's a large restaurant and can handle a... More

I have been to few Chinese Buffet restaurants but this one (Japanese) is very clean and place smells nice. Excellent food variety and reasonable price at $18.5 each.

Pros: Better selection of sushi than most buffets. Close to Nova U, Broward College Central Campus. Cons: The most lackluster interior among the Shinju restaurants. Arguably the worst food/selection among the Shinju restaurants as well. Certain staff members also behave unprofessionally. Tip: Ask for a booth to avoid the risk of getting sandwiched between tables/chairs/customers. The Shinju Japanese Buffet chain... More
