“surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

did lunch here and felt it was a very good value for what it is. Mostly maki, but had a lot of good sides like edami and seaweed salad.

“$10 lunch for fresh sushi & Chinese dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

This restaurant is managed Chinese people. Good price for decent sushi and Chinese dishes. It is packed at lunch time with a line out of the door. But we only waited 10 minutes due to their efficiency.

“Incredible value for Sushi eaters with good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

This is the second restaurant In this chain I've visited. Previous We went to the Boca Raton location. There are 4 in So. Fl. Arrived Friday, 7 PM and the entry area was crowded. We were seated witin 10 minutes. Incredibly large selection of sushi including avoocado, unagi and miniture octopus, 5 sashimi choices including white and red tuna. Queen crab legs and much ,more. 4 choices of soup, 10 deserts plus 8 ice ream flavors. The hibachi grill with a selection of vegetables, chicken, beef, and amazing shrimp, is cooked to order to any spice level and is outstanding. CONS-The horrible birthday song played over the PA system, over and over. We were disturbed by a group of 10-12 year olds acting rowdy next to their disinterested parents. Lovely waitress served drinks promptly and always checked and refilled immediately. She apologised for the kids after they left.
Price was same as Boca, $19.95 on Fri-Sun. Dinner. Lunch and midweek cheaper.
This is a must visit restaurant.

“I WISH I LIVED CLOSER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

My family and friends join me two or three times a month at this particular SHINJU in Davie. There are others but this one is the best. If I lived closer I would eat there two or three times a week. The selection is much larger than all of the other Aisian buffets. With so much variation I have no problem finding different items and I avoid duplication. The food is realy great...the service is wonderful ... and the management is sensational. Are you looking for a terrific bargain? Go there for lunch. Trust me...you will not be able to eat dinner.
