Sushi is pretty good!

I see a couple of bad reviews, I will not give a bad one though because I had a good experience. The sushi is pretty good for the price, I mean c'mon all you can eat sushi for 20 bucks? They have all the goodies, salmon, tuna, eel, inarizushi, and many more delicious sushi items! The seafood was... read more

I am not usually fond of buffets, but Kyojin is a little different. You can approach the sushi chefs and special order sushi and rolls and they make them for you at no extra charge. I am particularly fond of the salmon skin hand roll and the eel and cucumber handroll with no sauce. I also love their salad options.... More

When it comes to buffets, Kyojin really know how to put on an eating experience...King crab legs, Sashimi, fresh hibachi cooked meals, desert...very good food at a great value proposition. I love it but my waistline's ego grows with every visit...Regardless, I keep going back for more. One main rule to follow; Don't eat lunch before visiting...Enjoy and then be... More

For several years I ate at this South Miami Kyojin restaurant every weekend (since it's grand opening). But new owners have raised the price and began skimping on the food offerings, and their new menu looks more like they want to be a take-out place rather than the buffet that was their signature service. I've given the restaurant 3 visits... More

This is the second time I've eaten at this restaurant. The first time was several years ago and I wasn't impressed. However, today was a great dining experience. I crave the rolls and find good ones hard to come by. I had the buffet and as you can see from my plate that my focus was on the rolls. The... More

Kyojin is like any other Chinese Buffet, on despite of its Japanese name. The difference is they offer Sushi and Hibashi. Food is regular, but Sushi is good. I paid $19.40 (one person) at 05:00 pm, no beverages included. They have different rates, but same food for Lunch and Dinner, but you won't find a sign announcing when finish lunch... More

I am a big fun of sushi. But I think it might just be a wrong idea of mine to believe there could be great sushi buffet. The price is great for the food you get. Good place to fill yourself up when you are extremely hungry. Green tea ice cream is not really green tea flavor. Chocolate ice cream... More

I went with my daughter because we were shopping at a store next door. First thing I noticed was that the selection was very limited. It seemed to only have 1/2 the items found in other Japanese buffets around town. If memory serves me correctly, dinner price is about $18 per person. In all fairness, I did not try any... More

This is one of two sushi buffet restaurants in the South Miami area. This place is dancing on the border of hygiene and made me second guess grabbing any sushi just by the dingy dank look to the place, and rags just laying around the food. I didn't want to judge before I tried it, but first impressions are usually... More

This resturaunt was great. When we arrived we were seated quickly. We got our drinks immediately as well. The food was great, it started out as a Chinese section with hibachi and noodles. Then there was sesame chicken. Soon after there was a grill the food on the grill was excellent. And finally there was 30 different varieties of fresh... More
