Best Buffet!!

They've changed the name to Kpop very recently but basically still the same one. Went a week ago for my friend's birthday lunch and it's excellent! Good selections of buffet and so fresh! unlike the rest of Asian buffet restaurants, this place offers a lot! a bit pricey but I guess it's all... read more

Sushi should not be served buffet style. It needs to be made to order to stay fresh.

Food was good, but a little pricey. I went on my birthday and received a free dinner, which was nice.

Went there with my wife on our anniversary. I never eat sushi at a buffet but since I knew some that had eaten there, I decided to take a chance. Sushi was sub-par at best and some pieces tasted downright fishy. Overall, this is just higher end buffet food with a gourmet price. The atmosphere is akin to any average... More

I was excited as the Todai in California was awesome. This one in Houston is the exact opposite. I will not be coming here again. Ths food was horrible for the cost. The sushi mostly dried out and hard. Desserts tasted store bought from a bargain bin. Most of what I selected I only took one bite out of. Kept... More

I was very excited to go to the restaurant as I have gone before in many different locations around the world and I hadn't been a while. After eating here tonight, i will never go again. First of all, food was not that great and fresh. The crab legs smelled really funny and the mussels and oysters didn't taste fresh... More

Went there one Friday evening. This Todai is located at 7620 Katy Freeway. There is a cinema complex in the same complex. There is a large variety of food. Unfortunately, it was a turn off to see flies buzzing around the crab legs. One dinner buffet was $29.17 with tax. So you need to be VERY hungry and have a... More

The food was good overall but the crab legs were salty. The sushi choices were limited but tasty. Wasn't impressed with the Brazilian meats or meek dessert section. This is my third location, the Walnut Creek restaurant provided much more variety and the food tasted more appropriate.

This is a restaurant that can't decide whether to be a churrascaria or sushi bar, a somewhat bad combination of East meets West. All in all, food was mediocre, more about quantity than quality, which is usually the case with many a buffet style restaurant, but, unlike most buffet restaurants, the price is quite high for what you get, quality...
