Went to this restaurant with my boyfriend while in Miami for vacation and just fell in love with this place!!! great price and fresh,great tasting food. If you go for dinner hours (afternoon) the buffet cost $18 but for lunch it is like $14 dollars or so, anyway IT IS WELL WORTH THE PRICE!!!! very clean,friendly staff and a wide variety of sushi and desserts :) will definitively go back next time I am in Miami <3

“Best Alaskan King Crabs”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

From the moment you come in you feel that the service will be excellent. The seafood island was appealing and fresh. My husband commented that this is the first time that he is able to really enjoy the Alaskan King Crab legs with little effort. Ask for melted butter. The sushi presentation and selection is great, but nothing was better than the dessert station. The cheesecake is the best I ever had, they pecan squares, caramel custard, and other delightful treats for the sweet tooth, and for those that prefer fresh fruit, pineapple, grapes, oranges, and other fruits. One thing I did not like was the eggdrop soup, but that is it. The place is nicely decorated, not too much or too little. The price is reasonable. Oh, and don't forget to ask for a knife. You will find only a fork, a spoon and chinese sticks at your table, however, at the Hibachi station, they were serving steak. We will come back again.

“Very good sushi, excellent service, and affordable.”
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!”
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”
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.
