“Very good sushi, excellent service, and affordable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This place is a very short walk from Don Shula's Golf Resort Hotel in Miami Lakes and is WELL worth the walk.
I was in town on business with another well traveled individual and we both agreed that for the quality, selection, service and price this was a great buffet. Whether you want sushi, traditional "Chinese" food, Mongolian Grill or even crab legs there is something for you. The sushi was most impressive since there are 2-3 sushi chefs right behind the buffet cranking out fresh sushi so it's always fresh and tasty.
I will be back next time I'm in town for sure.

“I you love Sushi, this place is a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This place has the freshest mouth watering sushi!, delicious wakami salad, fresh Alaskan King crab legs, shrimp!!!...omg! they are located where the old Tony Roma's use to be, what a difference! it's fully redecorated, the hostesses are very friendly, the servers are just as friendly and make you feel very comfortable. Try the plum wine DELISH!, but be careful it's got a kick.
Not only do they have a fantastic sushi buffet, they have a cook to order section and cooked Japanese food for the non sushi eatters.
The price is very reasonable about $15.00 per person, not bad... all the sushi you can muster for that price. l go there as often as l can, the sushi chefs are right there constantly refilling the stations, they never run out. Family friendly, great place to take your date or if you want to go solo, whatever your fancy...go!...you won't regret it.

“Nice buffet....fresh sushi, and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went with my wife after recommendations from friends. The place is nicely decorated, clean, and the sushi selection is great. One small detail I liked is that although they have plenty to choose from, the sushi is not crowded into plates; therefore, it looks more appealing and easy to transfer to your plate. The sashimi tasted fresh and it was one of my favorites. The hibashi station was, in my opinion, average in taste. They have steak, chicken, shrimp, and (I think), calamari. For vegetables you can choose bean sprouts, mushrooms, onions, and zucchini. I had the steak, shrimp, bean sprouts, and onions. While I liked my choice, I thought it tasted a little bland. (The gentleman working the hibashi station was very nice and efficient).
The hot food section is awesome. The cream cheese wontons, sweet and sour chicken, and mushrooms are a must. Our server changed plates promptly and made sure we had everything we needed. (she was a sweetheart).
I would recommend this place to friends, family, and fellow trip advisor readers.

“Tamura Tomorrow and the Following Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Quality all around from food to variety and from cleanliness to customer service. Why go to Shin Ju in Broward when Tamura is only 2 blocks away. The temaki (homosaki) hand rolls with fried salmon skin needs improvements so Miyako in Sunny Isles is still my fav. Our family loves this place with quality high enough to meet the expectations of Japanese restaurants in SFO which we frequently travel to.
Should you eat there? ABSOLUTELY, but eat there often and be satisfied.
