We stopped here by chance and were a little surprised at the price. But when I was the choices I realized it was a bargain. Tons of choices of sushi - all very fresh and tasty. There was also everything you could think of from crab legs to chicken, beef, pork and fish. Lots of choices.

There's not much to say about an affordable Japanese buffet. While there was nothing glaringly bad about the place, I found it lacked anything special that would ever make me desire to go back. If you want to stuff your face with Asian cuisine, this is there place for you. The food is decent and the service is very nice.

Went there for lunch with a friend and had a great experience. Lots of options! Many different rolls available. For $12 it was a great deal for lunch. Recommend for anyone looking for a quick lunch and cheap sushi.

A group fishing friends and I eat here every month. There are from 6 to 10 of us and all are satisfied. We have tried quite a few restaurants in the area and after 2-3 visits we drop it off the list. Kyojins has been a regular spot for 3-4 years with no complaints. A big diverse buffet table offers... More

I am not usually fond of buffets, but Kyojin is a little different. You can approach the sushi chefs and special order sushi and rolls and they make them for you at no extra charge. I am particularly fond of the salmon skin hand roll and the eel and cucumber handroll with no sauce. I also love their salad options.... More

When it comes to buffets, Kyojin really know how to put on an eating experience...King crab legs, Sashimi, fresh hibachi cooked meals, desert...very good food at a great value proposition. I love it but my waistline's ego grows with every visit...Regardless, I keep going back for more. One main rule to follow; Don't eat lunch before visiting...Enjoy and then be... More

For several years I ate at this South Miami Kyojin restaurant every weekend (since it's grand opening). But new owners have raised the price and began skimping on the food offerings, and their new menu looks more like they want to be a take-out place rather than the buffet that was their signature service. I've given the restaurant 3 visits... More

This is the second time I've eaten at this restaurant. The first time was several years ago and I wasn't impressed. However, today was a great dining experience. I crave the rolls and find good ones hard to come by. I had the buffet and as you can see from my plate that my focus was on the rolls. The... More

Kyojin is like any other Chinese Buffet, on despite of its Japanese name. The difference is they offer Sushi and Hibashi. Food is regular, but Sushi is good. I paid $19.40 (one person) at 05:00 pm, no beverages included. They have different rates, but same food for Lunch and Dinner, but you won't find a sign announcing when finish lunch... More
