We have visited Shinju many times over the years. Sushi always serves fresh seafood. The staff is always friendly. I never had a bad meal at any of their restaurants, especially the one in Davie. You can't go wrong eating here.

A great assortment of sushi and sashimi. A large variety of rolls too. A great hot buffet tops it off with a hibachi, cook to order, chef. Save room for dessert - but I don't bother with that...lol!

The food at Shinju is excellent but they are overpriced. Their are so many similar Buffets and much lower prices with good food and great choices.

Unlimited sushi, snow crabs, stir fry, good wine by the glass, clean, friendly service. This chain is really taking the Chinese buffet to a another (higher) level. Been back several times. Great for biz dinner as the fixed price lets you know exactly what the bill will be. If you love crabs, ask for them steamed. They're cold on the... More

Nothing out of the ordinary at all you can eat Japanese Buffet. Sushi and Shashimi were good and displayed nicely although a little on the warm side (room temp). Other Japanese dishes seemed to be OK. Bill seemed to be on the high side, around $18.00 for the buffet. I dined there on a Tuesday and figured it would be... More

Plenty of crab legs, shrimp (already peeled) and fresh oysters plus standard fare. The rib eye steak kabobs were really good. I am not into sushi but if your are this is the place for you. Price for dinner was $20. I got my money's worth in the oysters and shrimp. Service is self-serve except they bring your drinks. Impressively... More

I have had the pleasure to eat at Shinju. The food is freshly prepared and authentic. You can go from the fresh sushi bar to the prepared dishes to the salad section and desserts. A wonderful eating experience.
