“Excelent food, very good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011 via mobile

The Sashimi was fresh, the Sushi rice very well prepared, clams, squid and langostinos just right. The hot plates like "fungui" and tepans, delicious. Worth going.

“Bargain Basement Pan Asian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

If you're in a hurry and not particularly picky about your sushi, by all means eat here. I know people who go just for the raw fish on the sashimi, discarding the rice, and they are perfectly happy with Kyojin. Most everyone else we know, all of us customers since day 1, have started looking elsewhere. Why? They have about four sushi makers (obviously not real sushi chefs) hacking away behind the counter, turning out large, sloppy rolls with more of an emphasis on speed than quality. Sometimes the rice hasn't even cooled off, and a large wad of warm starch really puts a damper on the sushi experience.

The hot bar is just OK, but lately the offerings have been more starchy/greasy than tasty...not even my grease/starch deprived child who ordinarily inhales Chinese food would finish her food, and that's bad.

It seems like every Asian buffet in town opens strong and then gradually decreases in quality. Kyojin held out for longer than most, but unfortunately the result seems to be the same.

“Bang for your Buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

My husband and I eat here often, 1 to 3 times a month. The variety of food offered, from outstanding fresh sushi, to the hot buffet to the dessert buffet is absolutely unbeatable anywhere else in Miami for the price. The wait staff is always friendly, the restaurant is spotless and if you can't find what you want on the buffet, they have a hot grill with chef's waiting to combine your choice of ingredients to make you the perfect dish. We highly recommend Kyojin!

“Seafood at its freshest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2010

Well worth it. You serve yourself and eat as much sushi, chinese, and even a Hibachi Grill where you can order what you want - steak, chicken, shrimp stir fry. They prepare a multitude of styles of sushi.
