I used to love this place, and i think the reason i keep returning is because i just keep hoping they return to their original standard. The sushi selection was once a great feast within its self, but now it seems to be right down to a minimum. The staff at one point couldn't do enough for you, but now... More

I've eaten here a couple of times and both times the food has been fantastic. The selection is great and you can also get unlimited drinks! Will definitely be going back

We were a party of 5 first timers as soon as we entered we were made welcome. As we learn the system of how the restaurant operated we started to our food. Some food you had to order that was brought to us but the rest you help yourself. As we went at 12 o'clock lunch time they had enough... More

I have been to Tenji many times and have always been impressed. There is a good selection of hot food on offer and an impressive selection of Sushi! All food is tasty and there is an extensive menu which food can be ordered from included in the price. Service is generally very good. Quite expensive at £18.90 per head plus... More

A little out of town, worth the walk, or very short drive. Don't rush and savour the Far East at leisure. The Sushi and Sashimi offering is a full buffet by itself, then there's the Dim Sum menu - everything made to order, very fresh and delicious, another meal in itself. Then there's the mixed Asian hot buffet, you will... More

I've been going here for a few years now. Latterly, it looks like it is on it's last legs. The sushi is much poorer than it was, and there's a lot less of it. The hot buffet is generallly por, the dim sum selection is not as good and the deserts are not good. The service is generally good, but... More

We visit here when we have a big group of friends with kids and international background. There are buffets and also dishes on menu which you can order. Kids and adults both enjoy the food. Service is good. Space is big

I do not know why this place calls itself TENJI JAPANESE BUFFET RESTAURANT: It as far from Japanese as it can be. The food is ok: But the service, décor & staff are shocking. Me & my mate went there on 25 Feb. Sat. You have to go round the rear of the place to get in, as it is... More
