“Sushi, sushi, sushi.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Lunchtime features an imaginative all you can eat buffet. Take what you eat, but eat what you take. They charge an extra $1.50 for leftovers on your plate! Seriously! Bonus-- sweet potato sushi.

“Great Restaurant!”

I've been to this restaurant numerous times. The sushi buffet is great either for lunch or dinner.
I feel at home here. The staff is always attentive and friendly.
This restaurant is a keeper!!!!!

I eat here every month with friends, on our way to an evening meeting. It is good enough.

Lunch buffet has plenty of choices.

“Best place to go with a group of friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We go dancing on the weekends often, and always get together with our friends for the Hinode buffet first. There are several reasons:
* The food is good and plentiful, and the choices range from traditional sushi to inventive rolls to cooked food to a nice selection of vegetarian dishes. Say hello to Kai, the sushi chef when you're there - he knows his stuff!
* The staff is accommodating and pleasant
* There is ample parking
* We can always get a table big enough to accommodate our group (of course, we go early to get to the dancing sooner)
* When people come late (and someone inevitably does), they don't have to wait to be served, they just jump into the buffet
* It is so easy to divide the check, as the buffet is fixed price

Highly recommended. And yes, we also go there when it's just the two of us. We like it that much.

“lots of variety in lunch buffet, good for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I have been to their lunch buffet twice now. For the price, it can't be beat. Lots of variety in sushi and rolls. Salmon and tuna are very fresh. Of course, for this price it cannot be top-shelf sushi, so the rice/fish ratio is larger than at the more expensive places. Service is friendly. Will definitely go back for lunch!
