Worthwhile

Passed by the restaurant several times while going to Giant but didn't have the chance to go in until recently. The place was relatively quiet most probably due to the nuclear scare but there were signs outside reassuring that the food was safe and all.

When we first entered, we were greeted by polite staff. The service of the staff here is perhaps one of the better ones in a Japanese buffet restaurants that i have been to(and i've been to quite a few but this is the first time i'm actually trying to write a review for any). The plates were cleared constantly and the waitress kept coming by to refill the tea. Service wise, well done.

The first order came fast.The sashimi platter served was relatively fresh, much better than those served at other buffets at least. The other food that were served such as the maki and chawamushi and the standard stuff i order at other places are pretty good too. The only thing was that one of their grilled dishes was too salty. But the rest were pretty good i guess. Especially enjoyed the beef, kimchi pork and the maki served was one mean maki. My opinion is that the food served is above average.

Ambience isn't really a big deal for me but personally i didn't like the background music playing . But seriously for the food and service there, the ambience really didn't bother me much. Just based on the freshness of the sashimi alone, i would recommend this place already. Recommended would be my rating.

Expected

Yesterday we went to try the buffet dinner at Hokkaido to celebrate my hubby bday. Well, when we got there....the ambience was so so, we find it too dark & is quite crowded...first thing turns me off is we were told we are given a corner counter seats (although we dun really want counter seats),

One bad service staff and made the experience bad.

Went to this restaurant at Turf City after picking my wife up after she attended a dinner. My wife had been there a few times and asked me to try for a change instead of going to Ah Yat on top.

Upon entering the restaurant, there was a warm local lady that brought us to the table. Later, another FT

Mr 22MYP

First and foremost, we, the management of Hokkaido Japanese Restaurant, would like to extend our most sincere apologies regarding the incident. I am sure it was a misunderstanding due to the over-attentiveness of our staff.

Our company's policy is to have a minimum of 2 person to dine at our ala-carte buffet. Having 1 adult and 2 children is, of course, of no issue. It is always our staff's job to check with the Chef when in doubt. Most importantly it is their responsibility to pay attention to the needs of all customers, they have to check that all food ordered are served promptly, remove any empty plates, ask if customers require more food.

When our staff was checking for new orders, she definitely has no intention of checking on our wife. We apologize if the over-enthusiasm of our service staff caused you to feel uncomfortable in any way.

Once again, we apologize for the misunderstanding and hope that you would come to our restaurant again and let us apologize to you personally.

Thank you.

Buffet Alert

I was looking for some Japanese buffet, and the last place that I would have searched for would be at Turf City. However, when I searched online and found that place, am I glad that I made a reservation given that it was almost a full-house. Clearly this place has built a strong brand name over the
