As the title says, I stopped in at this place thinking it was a bit pricey but I was blown away by the quantity and quality of sushi. Thier soups are amazing as well. They've got a great Habachi bar, but just a so-so line of other oriental foods. Overall worth the $11.99 for lunch!

My wife who hates buffets gave this her seal of approval. The sushi was great and freshly made. All the dishes seem to be smaller quantities compared to other places so they are made more often. The hibachi items were somewhat limited but the quality is well about average. We will come back next time we are visiting VA Beach.

This is the most amazing sushi buffet you will ever find. It has numerous choices, all of which are fresh. The quality of fish at a buffet can suffer but at Yukai it is done just like a small, specialized sushi shop. They do nigiri sushi, maki rolls, temaki cones and sashimi, all of which are the right size, temperature... More

We came here for the famous crab legs but although there was a fabulous array of buffet food the crab legs were nowhere to be found.

Easy to find a table. HUGE variety of items, I really liked that. The buffet costs $15 plus the taxes, which adds up to $17. Even though it is a little expensive and the service wasnt that friendly, it is all very fast and the food is delicious.

I was soooooo looking forward to crab legs as they say and picture on their website. They lied. I was there tonight and no crab legs. The sushi is o.k. but I've had better. All the fried foods tasted like fish. The salmon was bland. Even the fried rice was tasteless. The Chinese restaurant at home is 10 times better... More

If you like sushi, sushi mi, and hibachi then this is a great place to eat. They have a wide variety of selections. They are a bit expensive, but the food is fresh and they will grill your hibachi to order.
