“Oriental Food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Craving for crabs? Their King crabs are delicious and serving, none stop, refill. Sashimi and sushi all day - two thumbs up all the time.

“huge dinner buffet”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I dined in for a weekend dinner, and found this to be a very comprehensive spread of Japanese cuisine. There were many rolls and sashimi choices, with the sushi chefs working right at the bar. Fresh & baked oysters, crab, and mussels were also available. The seaweed and squid salads were also fresh and excellent. The quality of all the food was excellent, fresh, and at the proper temperature. My best asian buffet experience yet!

“Don't waste your money!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Was excited about trying this place but was very disappointed. The food was only ok, not a large selection and very much over priced!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Based on the tripadvisor reviews and personal reviews from acquaintances, I went to Kirin 2 near Willowbrook Mall. $11.95 lunch buffet. I arrived at 2:15 pm and the buffet last call was made at 2:23 pm. Didn't realize time issue or would have rescheduled. The sushi was great. I tasted the cajun roll, jalepeno roll, and shaggy dog. I enjoyed the baked oysters, a vinagarette baked fish, and alot of other items I can't recall. Had a chance to taste miso soup. The other soup was spinach soup. There was a desert and a fruit bar. Service was excellent. The fresh ginger was great! My guest had shrimp fried rice and didn't like it, and insisted I taste and I would have to agree it may have been on the buffet too long. The dinner buffet is $22.95 and because they had crab breaking utensils on my table, possible snow crab may be on the dinner menu. Glad I went.

“Inexpensive Sushi”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

All I had off of the buffet was sushi and sashimi, and while it was not the best sushi I have ever had, it was good. If I had gone to an upscale sushi place, my bill would easliy have been over $100, instead of $30 something. If you're a sushi snob, this place probably isn't for you, but if you don't already have a favorite sushi place and you are looking for reasonable sushi at a reasonable price, you should definitely give Kirin II a try. The service was very good.
