The granddaughters were starving after a morning of swim practice and a fun family event. They wanted sushi and they wanted it NOW! No time to wait to be seated, make our order and wait for it to arrive, so a buffet was our only option. We chose the Yukai Buffet because of its excellent sushi and its great selection... More

Its just a dated buffet place, but my family loves it, it was packed with people who seem to love it. We were packed like sardines in the seating area, dishes are over steamed or cooked, pho wasnt that great, desserts are weird- like bananas ruined in red berry sauce, basic ice cream, chocolate fountain but they only had marshmellows...

This place is very inexpensive considering all that they offer. If you are a sushi eater, then this is the place for you.

We ate here because we had a coupon while in town over the weekend. They have a large variety of sushi and a wide range of food on the buffet. Everything I got was great. The staff was very friendly and the bathrooms were clean. I don't understand the bad reviews! We will be back when we come back.

Not worth the $84 we spent on 4 people. Yukai yucky!! Fresh food was poured over old food. The food was often undercooked. Worse, there wasn't a wide selection.

The best Japanese buffet I have ever been to. Went several times during our month in Virginia beach. Always fresh, tasty and helpful staff. Items well labeled. The king crab at dinner is fantastic. My husband loved the raw oysters . Our sons loved the sunshine. Great buy😊

After reading the reviews we thought this would be a good place to eat. Boy were we wrong! The crab legs were very small and soggy! We thought maybe it was because they had set on the buffet awhile but that wasn't the case. We tried 3 different batches. Most people were eating the shushi so it must have been... More
