This is by far the best seafood buffet restaurant in East Brunswick. Serves wide varieties of sushis and other seafood. Serves good desserts too. A it pricey though, but I think its reasonable, because the foods are good.

Quality is horrible - but what do you expect from an all you can eat Japanese restaurant. Fish tastes like rubber. Not a fan at all.
