Good value for buffet lunch

My husband and I love to return to Hinode for the lunch buffet several times each year. There is a huge variety of sushu, soup, salads, and got dishes. All you can eat and then some. The tempura sushi was great today. I also love their scallion pancake, gyoza, and grilled vegetables. Delish.

When you think of Sushi, you don't typically think of large portions, but on our first visit we ordered way too much food. The sushi appetizers and entrees come out on large platters, all fresh and are big enough to split easily. If we had known, we would have also split an entrée. Looking forward to going back and trying... 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

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 watercress... 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
