They charge baby to eat here for NOTHING.. during my <1 hour lunch buffet, the server and manager interrupted me THREE TIMES to argue a charge for my baby who virtually ate nothing. The manager behaved like a miser. They did not care whether the customer was satisfied or not. Food and sushi are no where exceptional. I'd not recommend... More

I come here during lunch between 12 and 2:30 for the lunch buffet. For $15 you get 20 varieties of sushi tempura dishes soup and rice. You're in and get seated and they are super awesome and I take care of you every time you need something. Even when it's close to 2:30 they will make you another roll if... More

I am not a big fun of buffet style dining and try to avoid buffets even when in Vegas , but surprisingly this one at Hinode is something I would go for when I crave for sushi. Their Lunch buffet has great variety of sushi , including some specials and one without rice that tasted like a spring roll (forgot... More

Hinode is hidden in a strip mall, an unassuming location. They have a fabulous diverse menu, with lots of options. The sushi menu is extensive. All dishes came with a beautiful presentation. A good choice for Japanese.

My husband and I love to return to Hinode for the lunch buffet several times each year. There is a huge variety of sushu, soup, salads, and got dishes. All you can eat and then some. The tempura sushi was great today. I also love their scallion pancake, gyoza, and grilled vegetables. Delish.

When you think of Sushi, you don't typically think of large portions, but on our first visit we ordered way too much food. The sushi appetizers and entrees come out on large platters, all fresh and are big enough to split easily. If we had known, we would have also split an entrée. Looking forward to going back and trying... More

Treated my 10-year-old to the sushi buffet for lunch today. The adult price ($13.95) for lunch is perfectly fair, though I was surprised that there is no discount for kids over the age of 8. We enjoyed miso soup, several kinds of salad, grilled vegetables, vegetable potstickers, lo mein, and of course sushi. I stick to the vegetable sushi, of... More
