The sushi is very good and diverse. The the price is great. Arrive early; on many nights the restaurant is packed by 6:00 pm.. Service is a bit inconsistent.

The trick to successful Japanese dining is getting the freshest fish. DUH!!!! The Shinju buffet closes to my house (in Davie, FL ... there are other locations not as close) has a rapid turn over, so everything seems freshly refilled on the buffet line. Love that they have an ample assortment of sashimi and don't have a 'rice requirement' to... More

WHOA! Have you ever been to two different locations of a restaurant chain and had that "WHOA" reaction...I have. My wife and I were on our way to eat at a restaurant that we had a coupon for when we saw the Shinju in Davie, FL just next door. We changed our minds to eat at the other place because... More

Every year for the last 13 years we take the kids out to a restaurant to celebrate back to school the next day. The kids gave it the name: "The worst celebration ever". This year our last child remaining in high school and I went out to celebrate this tradition. We chose Shinju to eat because both of us love... More

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.
