Good for Lunch

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... read 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

Hinode has a nice lunch buffet. There is one side that is sushi and another side that has a mix of asian sides. I haven't been here for awhile and the quality is now better than I remember. It was nice that there was 1 brown rice sushi option and one red rice sushi option. The sprout salad and watercress... More
