My Girlfriend and I had dinner here last night, after reading such positive reviews about this place. We we're very disappointed. The ambiance is horrible, the food was not fresh at all, the ice cream had zero taste and some of the food felt processed. The buffet also was limited in variety of Food. We will never come back here.... More

It used to be a great place... Not anymore in this last visit, smaller selection & tinier sushi & sashimi * almost razor cut . Very disappointing also that they sit us knowing that they are closing the kitchen ... If you go there there go in between the regular time not around shift change...

Indulge in all the sushi you can eat at lunch for $12.95. Hidden in a small strip mall south of downtown Miami is great value and good Japanese cuisine. A favorite local dining spot for my Miami family.

Every time me and my family visit Miami, we all go here, the best buffet time is on weekends that is when they bring out the best food, on weekdays is as other buffets around the city. Prices are a little bit high compare to others, but it is worth for its quality.
