Hinode was a good choice for friends to get together. We took over their back room with our large group. The service was excellent! The sushi buffet was delicious, varied and fresh. They had a hot buffet, too, mostly Korean dishes. And finally, fried banana to wrap it up. The location is good with plenty of parking.

They made a great shrimp and vegetable tempura, light and crispy, using fresh oil. The shrimp is tender inside a crispy coating. Not heavy or doughy like a lot of restaurants. Four of us had dinner and everything was excellent. Try the age tofu, exceptionally well done. Varied menu with Korean dishes also and broiled fish.

I was looking for a nice family oriented Japanese restaurant in preparation for my out of town guests, thought I'd check this out. I was disappointed, it is very dated, no atmosphere at all. I stayed to check out the food and service. I came on a Thursday evening, the place was practically empty so the waiter was attentive, food... More

Great for the all you can eat sushi and Japanese buffet. Its offered for lunch during the week and all day during the weekends. They have several different sushi and shahimi rolls, Japanese food (i.e. teriyaki chicken, fried rice, etc.) and tempora and soup. The rolls don't usually sit out long, I don't think they last more than 15 minutes... More

This place is an excellent choice when you want sushi and want a lot of variety and styles of preparation. Sushi buffet here had at least 25 different rolls. Most were very good and expertly prepared fresh. There was a hot bar with standard Chinese dishes that I did not try... also tempura veggies and the miso soup was excellent.... More

Lunch buffet is good but the quality of the sushi at dinner is better than that at lunch. For less than $25 you get a great selection of sushi and other items. Definitely a favorite place to go!

This sushi is great. Good variety, always fresh. The hot buffet is excellent. The tempura very good and always fresh. Service is excellent. The restaurant is very clean. Run don't walk to Hinode if you want a great Sushi meal.

The food is good, but the service is excellent! Ask Koon to show you how he pets the fish - amazing!

I have eaten here several times (always with several co-workers for lunch). For expediency and quantity we have all simply ordered the $14.95 all-you-can-eat sushi buffet so I cannot address dinner or dining al la carte. Certainly the buffet quality is not the highest, but it is "fresh" (they replenish the selections as they are depleted), the variety is extensive... More

Recently went to Hinode (first time for me) with a group of friends. We chose to sit at a table and the food was wonderful. Tempura can be unpredictable but this was fresh, hot and crispy. We had a ball and the service was great (never an empty glass)!
