“Delicious food, good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We planned a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday here tonight partly because it has enough options for virtually all tastes, including vegan. In several visits for both lunch and dinner we've always been satisfied with the freshness and variety of the food, especially the sushi.

Decor has just enough traditional Japanese elements mainly in the entry and front area, though otherwise it's fairly nondescript—dark wood panel walls. A few large-screen TVs follow the trend to cheapen far too many otherwise formerly lovely places. We did notice some cluttered boxes in the corner by our table and even in the main entrance, along with stacked plastic chairs (?!). It doesn't affect the quality of the food but the aesthetics do nudge me next time probably to go farther out of the way to a similar, newer restaurant in downtown Coral Gables, with a comparable pricing structure and product, presented just a bit more elegantly.

Service is adequate—prompt refills and clearing away of used dishes.

“Actually Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I live and work right by Kyojin Japanese Buffet and never have tried it for fear of... bad food and an expensive price tag... boy as I wrong. I loved everything I ate. The sushi was fresh, the salads tasty, and the hot food was really good too. I even had a little bit of Green Tea Ice Cream to clean my palette and it was also really good and fresh tasting. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean as well. I spent around $15 including tip, for more food than I could possibly finish. I would recommend this place for sure.

“Very good local buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

They have a great variety of hot, cold, and made to order choices. On the weekends they have snow crab legs. The hibatchi grill cook to order is always decent.

We eat here about once a month, nd always enjoy it. the kids love the desserts.

“Super buffet table.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The basic Chinese plus a sushi bar. What more can you ask for?
We meet here monthly for lunch and always come away satisfied. Their selection is very good and their prices very fair.
They have a steamed shrimp tray which is a good start. They offer a fine choice of desserts also.
This spot is all you can eat so go for it!
