This is one of two sushi buffet restaurants in the South Miami area. This place is dancing on the border of hygiene and made me second guess grabbing any sushi just by the dingy dank look to the place, and rags just laying around the food. I didn't want to judge before I tried it, but first impressions are usually accurate. First off, I question if the sashimi is truely 'sushi grade' fish. The salmon sashimi was ok, tuna and white fish awful. Actually, any tuna pieces had a fishy taste. There are plenty of fried food options, if American Chinese take out food is your thing. I wanted to give them credit for homemade desserts, but witnessed an employee re-stacking the desserts from a box located in the freezer under the buffet. I was going to give it a higher rating when I assumed it would be a lower price per person vs. POC in Coral Gables, but there was a $2 difference (a sushi buffet done right, easily 5 stars). I am appaled this place is so popular. Most customers obviously don't realize there is an amazing place for the same price, just a few minutes up the road. Please do not eat here, it is awful.
