Best deal in Bethesda on Friday night. Almost reluctant to spread the word, but for the sake of Western civilization, I share a dining nugget in sleepy Bethesda. Sure there are plenty of sushi options around town, a few even within walking distance, but on Friday nights, there's no comparison... read more

This restaurant is closing in about July 19 and has had a really good sushi buffet. It has two other counterparts in Montgomery County-- one is in Rockville, and I believe it has the same format.

Hinode at Hampden Lane in Bethesda has the best sushi bar in the Bethesda area. The sushi bar also includes excellent tempura, and some good vegetable side dishes (the cooked, shredded spinach with sesame is excellent when available). The assortment of available sushi is outstanding, and standouts include the unagi, the many composed rolls, and the salmon roll creations. The... More

We love their sashimi, tempura, agedofu, etc etc. Go there frequently because it's quiet and casual, service is always excellent, price is right, food always good. We prefer ordering from menu instead of buffet, mostly because we think it's fresher. The salad that comes with the meal is the only so-so dish, but that's not what we go for. The... More

Lunchtime features an imaginative all you can eat buffet. Take what you eat, but eat what you take. They charge an extra $1.50 for leftovers on your plate! Seriously! Bonus-- sweet potato sushi.

I eat here every month with friends, on our way to an evening meeting. It is good enough. Lunch buffet has plenty of choices.

We go dancing on the weekends often, and always get together with our friends for the Hinode buffet first. There are several reasons: * The food is good and plentiful, and the choices range from traditional sushi to inventive rolls to cooked food to a nice selection of vegetarian dishes. Say hello to Kai, the sushi chef when you're there... More

I have been to their lunch buffet twice now. For the price, it can't be beat. Lots of variety in sushi and rolls. Salmon and tuna are very fresh. Of course, for this price it cannot be top-shelf sushi, so the rice/fish ratio is larger than at the more expensive places. Service is friendly. Will definitely go back for lunch!
