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!
