Nice buffet!

Total Reviews: 60

The buffet at Himawari is nice for a change of pace to regular buffets.

There is a nice variety of food, and you don't get that super-full heavy feeling after eating that you get after most buffets, as it's Japanese.

I made a booking prior so we were quickly shown to our table and we were given hot green tea immediately which I liked. The salmon sashimi was fresh but the rest of the sashimi I.e. the tuna, swordfish and kingfish were questionable. We ordered the potato croquettes which were excellent along with the yakitoroi. He nabiyaki udon soup base was a little bland and tasteless as was the deep fried soft shell crab. overall the service was good the salmon is fresh and the price was reason $+09 for two including 2x 150mL sake

Went there for lunch, recommended by a friend. I was wondering what was so good about this when the restaurant is just half empty.

As I was waiting for my set lunch, the crowd started to come and before I knew it, the place was packed!

I waited in anticipation for my set and I was not disappointed from the generous portion of sashimi. Most importantly, they are fresh! Oh yum!!

Am going for the ala carte buffet lunch next month after seeing positive reviews about it. Will come back with another review :)

Himawari is as good as it gets when it comes to Japanese food done buffet style. The food won't win any excellence awards but the standards are better than most, and with over 80 dishes to choose from, there is something for everyone. The sashimi is thick-cut and the hand rolls come chock full of ingredients. More unusual offerings include natto (fermented soybeans) with tuna or squid, grilled salmon head, Japanese salads and generous portions of grilled meat. The service however, leaves much to be desired. Opt for the premium buffet, and you get a one-time order of uni (sea urchin), ootoro(tuna belly), oysters and other premium morsels. The oldest (and most reliable) outlet is the one at Alexandra Road.
