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!

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)!

My wife and I had a craving for sushi so we stopped by for lunch on Veteran's Day. We were seated immediately. The sushi buffet station looks clean and well organized but the sushi was about average. Unless you like the different maki rolls, the sushi was very thinly sliced, barely covered the rice and on top of that...too much... More
