“So sad to see a good restaurant go downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

My family and I go to this restaurant every time I go to Florida to visit my mother. You have always loved it. The sushi was fresh in the hot food was delicious and fresh. That was then!
I don't know if there is a new owner of the restaurant but the quality of the food has definitely gone down. None of the hot food was hot except for the soup. The tempura shrimp and vegetables tasted rancid as though the oil used to cook them had not been changed in a very long time.
Sushi tasted okay, but sushi should not be just okay, sushi should be supremely fresh and tasty This sushi was not. It used to be.
Even the bathroom was not being tended to. There was no TP in two of the stalls and the paper towel dispenser was jammed.
Like I said , I've come to eat at Kyojin every time I'm in Florida , several times a year , and we always bring a group. Everyone with us tonight agreed that the food was not good.
I feel like I'm saying goodbye to a good friend. I will not be going back to Kyojin.

“Very Disappointing, Not much to eat.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

It is all you can eat for $20.00 a person. Drink, tip and tax and you pay $30.00.
The sushi is good but not much verity. Shrimps and crab legs are good. The Chinese buffet was very poor selection of food. The grill bar you had to wait for 10 min. for a very small portion of poor quality beef. The ice-cream is relay ice. No Valina. Not going back to this place even for 1/2 price.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013 via mobile

$20 per person and the buffet is VERY limited. Food wasn't that great. It's more of a sushi buffet not much of a selection. Waste of money.

“Sushi very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Great place to meet friends and enjoy sushi and shushimi. Food is always fresh and plentiful. Staff is always pleasant and helpful. There are options for non sushi eaters. Not as a large a buffet as some other area sushi buffets, but very good and ample. The crab legs and shrimp were very good. The sushi was excellent.
