A fairly high priced buffet with sushi, hibachi, some Chinese and Japanese. Selection was smaller, but quality was decent. Ice cream was a highlight with 8 selections, including green tea. Located right at 31st and University, it's was at capacity, so lots of people like the place. For us, $20 was rather high for the limited selection, unless you love... More

You really can't beat the great price for all you can eat sushi! Its fresh and if you have kids that like sushi like mine do, this is the perfect place to take them! Doesn't matter how much they eat, you already know how much you are going to spend! The crab/oysters offered arent the bestm but definately edible and... More

Nice clean restaurant. There is always lots of food on the buffet, many choices from appetizers, to sushi, to seafood, to hot food, even a hibachi grill where you can tell them how to make it! Service is usually pretty good. Price seems high until you consider the selection and its not that bad. You would spend as much ordering... More

STAY FAR AWAY!!! I have eaten at Shinju many times over the past few years and have to say that quality has diminished 100% while the price has gone up. Those factors do not make any sense but its true. My husband and I were just there last week for the last time. We spent $40 + for the both... More

Shinju is one of our regular dinner restaurants, so we decided to try them for lunch. NEVER again! Though the menu price is reduced by a couple of dollars, the menu choices are reduced to all the food we wouldn't take... No ribs, no sashimi, none of the better sushi rolls, no crab legs....not worth it. Worse still, when they... More

We go here often. Food variety is great. Service is reliable. Hibachi is good but requires a wait. Pricing is fair.

Usually go on regular basis. Recent food inspection reports have put up some flags. Further investigation required. I will say prior to reading report I always enjoyed their large selection and quality

I've been eating here since the place opened, but this time I noticed it's not the same... the quality, quantity, freshness and variety is down and the price is up, $11.95 for a weekday lunch. It's never a good sign when the Sushi chefs are Mexicans! The rolls were sloppy, rolled loosely, and made with ingredients that did not make... More

This is a regular destination for my wife and I. The sushi is always fresh and tasty. We especially enjoy the oysters and crab legs. They also serve hot Chinese food and there is a Grill station where you can have your choice of ingredients prepared in front of you. Prices are very reasonable and the service is excellent.

The food is really good, although I wish they paid more attention to keeping the hot food.. 'Hot'! As for the Sushi, good quality & variety considering the low price. Service is excellent, waitresses smile, understand you and are on the 'ball'! Oh, must try the Hibachi, fresh Shrimp, Chicken, Steak and veggies made to order & served piping hot.... More
