Reviewed July 28, 2014

I went to Kyojin right at opening for lunch. This is a great time to go as the buffets were freshly stocked and all items were full and plentiful.
The place is large and clean, it's brightly light and get busy quickly.
There are several lines of sushi, soups, hot dishes, seafood and desserts including ice creams. The food is not great, but on the other hand it's not bad. There was nothing I ate that I didn't enjoy. It does seem reasonably fresh. If you really want a night out of top sushi or Japanese food, this might not be your place. But if you are looking for a great deal with lots and lots of food for a reasonable price, this is your place. The cost was $12.00 and well worth it.
The waitress was good, she cleared empty plates and kept my ice tea glass full.
This isn't the most gourmet meal that you will have in Fort Lauderdale, but it will be the best price and you won't leave hungry!

We were disapointed with this restaurant. We did not feel the sushi was that good, average selection and small pieces. Did not feel it was crisp and fresh. The tuna was not seared and was not cut evenly or thin. The hibachi was better. The rice, noddles, springroll, tempura shrimp and other items in the "hot" area had no flavor. The cocktail shrimp was tough and overcooked. The best thing in the buffet was the whole salmon fish that you took pieces from. Restaurant was clean, staff was friendly, nice and attentive but food itself should be the draw. Won't revisit with so many better Sushi restaurants to choose from.

Excellent variety of sushi and sashimi with hibachi grill available (cooked to order) and giant chinese and seafood buffet. Crab legs, shrimp, and crawfish, as well as a selection of "real" dipping ice-cream and deserts that were very good. All the sushi tasted fresh and was made throughout the night and the sashimi turns over very quickly. We enjoyed it very much and will come back next time we are in Fort Lauderdale.

I am not sure why there are so many poor reviews. I just had dinner at Kyojin Friday night and found the food and service to be very good. I arrived shortly after 5pm when they open and all the food was out hot and fresh. There are a ton of sushi choices, hot foods, and a hibachi station. All the food I had was great and the ribs were better than at most BBQ places! The staff was attentive and cleared the plates off our table instantly. They were polite and the whole dinner was great.
