i have eaten at jingo du three times now and have yet to be disappointed. my wife and i normally do not care for buffets but decided to try this restaurant and we were very surprised. there is a very large selection that encompasses; stir fry, sushi, sashi, appetizers (mussels & peel n eat shrimp), hot foods, and desserts. we have not found any of the food to be unacceptable and have always walked away happy. give them i try, i don't think you will be disappointed.

Was truly hoping this was going to be tasty as Japanese buffets usually are great values and the kids love them but was sadly disappointed.

First let me tell you that the sushi was the size of a postage stamp. Not kidding it really was that small. The salmon sashimi was still frozen as I bit into it and I felt an icy crunch.

The soups were tasteless and the hot food was bad with two exceptions: the fried chicken legs and fried rice. Not sure I would tell all if southwest Florida to go here for fried chicken though.

The place is clean and the service was ok. But so long as the food is bad does it really matter?

We have eaten @ jing du 3 times. Our 1st visit was awesome. The food was hot & properly labeled except for the ice cream. Un fortunately, our waitress spoke no english, so my "iced tea" was a mystery drink. We have returned 2 more times & the hot food was hit or miss. The lo mein noodles that were delish our 1st visit were bland & very mushy. The vegetable tempura was warm @ best. All 3 times the sushi variety was spectacular & impressive. We will try one more time & hope to get that wow again.

We have been waiting for this establishment to open for months. I believe the grand opening was March 11. We went there last Sunday and was impressed with the assortment of sushi and 4 types of sushimi which we did not expect. The quality was excellent for the price. There were hot foods, a hibachi grill, oysters on the 1/2 shell along with cold mussels and salads. We mostly ate the sushi and did not try the hibachi. The hot foods were tasty but couldn't try too many due to filling up with sushi. It was around 7 PM and only 1/3 full. They are running a grand opening special with 20% off. Normally, $17.99 weekdays & $19.99 on weekends. which is not bad. If you are not a sushi fan, there are other buffets at a more reasonable price.
