“Restaurant Reopens After Kitchen Remodel”

Tomi Japanese Seafood Buffet
Ranked #22 of 356 Restaurants in Concord
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 October 2018

This restaurant was closed after several weeks due remodel of the kitchen.

The buffet has the same great food and wonderful servers. Please see my previous review of this restaurant. I only review establishments that provide a superior dining experience with exceptional value.

The cuisine at this buffet is Chinese and Japanese. It is rare to find a restaurant that can do more than one cuisine well. Tomi Sushi seems to do the entire menu well.

We love the following items served by the restaurant. On the Japanese side, we have salmon skin roll, assorted raw fish sushi--especially salmon and hamachi, rolls with assorted ingredients--especially the roll with shrimp tempura on the inside, seared salmon on the outside covered with a delicious sauce containing garlic; Saba, seaweed salad, jicama salad, and sashimi (at dinner). On the Chinese side, we love the eggplant dishes, the shrimp mayonnaise, broccoli beef, fried squid (when available), and shumai. We still have never tried one of several different soups and many of the other dishes not on this list. There are usually five different offerings of fresh sweet fruit, 8-10 different desserts, and ice cream.

The variety is so immense that we believe this to be the best buffet outside of Las Vegas. It is the best buffet period serving Japanese and Chinese Food exclusively.

The least expensive meal is lunch at $16.95 for adults, $15.95 for seniors. This is a tremendous value for the all you can eat offerings. Dinner is about $26.95, depending on the day of the week. Dinner meal has larger choice of higher end offerings such as cooked crab and multiple sashimi dishes. Dinner is still an excellent value at the higher price.

Some items served at this restaurant are the best than anywhere else. You will need to find your own favorites.

My wife and I travel 70 miles each way to eat at this restaurant as a dining destination.
We always enjoy the experience immensely. We visit an average of twice a month and were overjoyed to see that the restaurant reopened.

A tip for maximum enjoyment: on the first visit, do not load your plate with a large amount of any one item. Instead, try a little of many items. Then go back for the items you like the most. This is how we optimized our enjoyment. Now, when we return to the buffet, we head straight towards our favorites, which usually are there except for maybe items no longer in season. Darn, we still haven't tried the soups!

We eat at this Buffett for lunch an average of twice a month. Not having to wait for a meal while shopping is an excellent time saver. The number of choices is so great that we never grow tired of eating here. Also, the items offered change with the season.

As other reviewers have described the fare, I am listing our favorite items.

On the Japanese side of the Buffet, we always get sashimi, Salmon Skin Rolls, and other rolls. Seaweed salad and fruit round out our favorite choices. We have never tried the soups or ice cream. Instead, we go with Chinese food and dessert cakes.

On the Chinese side, we get the eggplant and beef broccoli. The salt and pepper squid is fantastic when available.

Because our favorites are usually available, we have not tried many of the items even though we have eaten here for years.

Buffet prices vary by time and day. Weekday lunch is least expensive, with Friday, Saturday night's and all day Sunday most expensive. The best quality menu selections coincide with the most expensive meals. The Sashimi offered on weekend evenings is fantastic.

Be careful not to overeat! We limit ourselves to no more than three lightly loaded plates to avoid weight gain.

This is our all time favorite buffet. We drive seventy miles each way just to eat here.

You need to be prepared to put the feed bag on. I always start with some sushi, then move on to other entrees from there. Nice desert selections as well.

Definitely not fancy sushi, but very fresh and such a large variety, topped by dumplings, tempuras and deserts. Simply amazing!

Even taking not more than one piece each, I was full before I reached half of what the buffet offered

All for less than $25...

Unbeatable value
Will come back there for sure
