“Good Food - nice variety”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I been in this place more than a few times lately. Its look like my family like this place as the best buffett in town. They have nice variety of sushi and other food. The price is reasonable. Some waiting lines on weekend - expect up to 20 minutes and more. Service is good - no complains.

“wow, great food”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I had the pleasure of eating there twice for lunch and I was really impressed with the selection and freshness. Everything that you would want and then some. Nice dessert table.

“Great Asian Buffett - Not Cheap”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I've been there for both Lunch and Dinner. At lunch they don't have the Spare Ribs :-( . If you like Ribs then wait for dinner because they are fall off the bone yummy, without the typical red glaze that other restaurants use they have a sweet delicate maple tasting glaze and they also don't have the crab legs for lunch but there is plenty of good food to eat anyway. DON'T PASS THE HIBACHI GRILL W/O making a dish. Lots of Asian buffetts have these but not with the same amount of variety, water chessnuts, peanuts, cashews, Bean sprouts, Tomatoes, cabbage, etc. and nine different flavoring Sauces to mix in to your custom ingredients. Then they add Shrimp, chicken, or beef which is lightly coated in Flour. We used to go to the Asian buffett on Hillsboro and Federal Hwy which is also very good and considerably less $ but not as amazing as Shin Ju - eating here is a treat

“Lots of great sushi, plus.”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

First a little history. We used to get our sushi buffet fix at Kiojin in Boca Raton. Nice place but limited choices. We then switched to Ginza in Boynton Beach and were pleasantly surprised by the improvements we found. However, when Shinju opened in Boca Raton, that became our all time favorite Asian buffet. Shinju is a very pretty restaurant with a comfortable layout for the buffet selections. Set in a large circular area is a huge selection of sushi and sashimi as well as cold crab legs, mussels, shrimp and other cold asian salads. Along a separate serving bank is a very respectable selection of Japanese and Chinese hot chaffing dishes, including several soups, spare ribs, yakitori, shrimp and vegetable tempora and many other popular standards. A separate area contains the hibachi stir fry area, where the cook prepares your selections to order. And of course there is a good choice of desserts. The nice part is that each area stands on its own, which reduces the crowding often found on buffet lines. Be advised, however, that this place can get crowded later in the evening, especially on weekends. The earlier you arrive, the better. But if you are looking for good selection of sushi and sashimi, in a comfortable environment, this is the place to go.

“Great food - always fresh”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

The selection of sushi is great and the quality is excellent. If you are looking for an all-you-can-eat asian restauant, look no further.
