Best sushi buffet in town, by far!! Great selection and reasonable price. Has hibachi service and traditional buffet plates/ offering. Not a fancy place but who cares! They have fresh food and lines are reasonable to get table. Lunch is usually open and dinner is the wait. The dinner offers crabs legs and oysters too.

It exceeded all my expectation. The sushi is made with fresh fish. One can really eat you can eat of sushi. Asian rice, beef and chicken are excellent as well. I came with my family. 2 adults and 2 children the bill was 48.12. Recommended.

Miami is a horrible place for Chinesse buffet, but Shinju is a good place, clean, with tasty classical buffet stuff. I will vist again. Sixteen bucks one person, but it's worth.

Seriously great food, and much better service than most Asian buffets. I don't know anywhere else you can get such a beautiful array of sushi for only $13! (And I... More

What a great buffet! After hearing about this place from friends I went to dinner there. It's a huge spread. I was surprised at the high quality of the sushi and seafood. They continuously were adding fresh choices to the buffet.
