This is the spot to go if you want your sushi fix. The price is good and the servers and owner always greet you with a smile. I would only wish that they could offer specialty rolls instead of always the same thing and even some hand rolls.

Obviously, you are not getting the BEST quality at a buffet, but as far as buffets are concerned, you would be hard pressed to find better. I love this place and have been going there for years. Do not go towards the tail end of lunch as that is the worst time to go, other than that, it's great.

Went here with the family for a late lunch they have an abundance if sushi selection which is all fresh. They also have a grill, that you can choose what you want them to cook for you. The line was pretty long for that but the food was really good. Been here several times n the owners is very nice

I like their all you can eat sushi as it is very fresh and has a good variety. On weekend nights they always have snow crab legs and they are good also. We come here on a regular basis so we will be back again

We had dinner at Shinju Japanese Buffet, and it was the best Asian Buffet we've ever been to. I visited Japan many times, and I never saw such a variety of Sushi and Maki in my life. Food was great, and variety exceeded expectations. If like Asian food and happen to be in Miami, do not miss Shinju.

Every time I visit Miami, I always have to stop by. The sushi here is always fresh and they always keep it coming. There's so much variety! Then I always finish with a few bowls of green tea ice cream. Instant nirvana of food coma. Check it out!
