The food was not good at all and the price is way too high for that kind of buffet. Will never eat there again!

I love sushi, and this was the closest to the hotel I was staying at. So Kyojin suffers from the same fate as most sushi buffet, they cook everything in advance then put it on the cold shelf. Sushi that is prepared this way usually...More

The service was terrible, the food marginal, and the atmosphere dirty and stanky. The ONLY compliment we could pay is that they do have quite a variety of sushi on the buffet. It wasn't real good, but there was plenty to choose from. Might be...More

Not really a big fan of buffet. Food was what I expect. Not really that great. Sushi didn't seem that fresh. Probably won't go back.
