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

Shinju has more and fresh sushi rolls on a buffet than I have seen at many Japanese restaurants. They have a number of sushi chefs preparing and replenishing so it is always fresh. On weekends they have snow crab legs and the best tempura shrimp I have had. Also many other wonderful dishes and desserts. Have never made it to... More

Delicious,fun and clean. The kids had fun and enjoyed a meal they chose off the buffet. The buffet layout was perfect I wasn't bumping into other people or scared to drop food. We'll definitely be back.

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.
