You must eat here with the right expectations. The wait was reasonable, around 10 minutes. Many of the sushi rolls are made with shrimp tempura, or more like tempura tempura. They all taste the same. The Chinese section is decent, with the steak leading the way. Many people were devouring the crab legs, but it's not my thing. Sir Fry stations are ok, and the desserts seem like they are out of a store bought box. But what do you expect?, it's a buffet. Make sure you have plenty of toilet paper at home before you venture here.

A place for those who would never eat "raw fish" but love "sushi rolls" now that they are americanized and cooked.
Now they can tell their friends-- "I'm cool and love sushi."--Sure.

Sashimi is excellent as long as it doesn't stay out on buffet table forever like many rolls do which drys them out. If you love sushi rolls, then this is not the place for you.

Chinese food gets cold sitting out forever and restaurant does not add to dishes enough when they run out.

If you want alot of mediocre food-- then this is your place.

This is the best sushi in Boca because it is the freshest. Great selection of sushi, hot meals and hibachi. Above average hot items are the pork dumplings and hibachi bar. Service is ok. Very affordable.
Dinner has a few more options.
If you are craving sushi, this is a great option in Boca.

Let me first point out, these Japanese buffets are not Japanese, they are ALL run by the Chinese!! So don't expect first class Japanese sushi, 'cos you ain't gonna get it, not at these prices! You basically, get a range of average dishes at not bad prices. So stop bloody complaining!!

Sorry, I'm from England and that's what we say!

Rant over.

ive probably tried them all in palm beach.. shinju,location in boca really brings in the crowds,$17.00 during the week $19 on weekends $2 off for seniors if you ask.
service was good,food okay,some sushi was room temp a no no,very good selection, hot dishes and a hibatci table. a lilltle noisy because it seems to always be busy. I like GINZA better, not as crowded,sushi is fresh and chilled.cleaner,rolls are fuller,same types of dishes and also crab legs. id rate ginza,shinju, kojian a distant 3rd.
