Good lunch place

Hinode has a nice lunch buffet. There is one side that is sushi and another side that has a mix of asian sides. I haven't been here for awhile and the quality is now better than I remember. It was nice that there was 1 brown rice sushi option and one red rice sushi option. The sprout salad and... read more

Treated my 10-year-old to the sushi buffet for lunch today. The adult price ($13.95) for lunch is perfectly fair, though I was surprised that there is no discount for kids over the age of 8. We enjoyed miso soup, several kinds of salad, grilled vegetables, vegetable potstickers, lo mein, and of course sushi. I stick to the vegetable sushi, of... More

They're not shy about it, they bang you out for the prices here. You get high quality food. I'd be hard pressed to think of when I have had a better California Roll and the Volcano roll was excellent. That being said, for one diner, I spent over $26 and only had tea to drink. Go if you want quality,... More

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!
