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.

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), yet we were given a middle counter seats which we find it very unconfortable & later on, we were asked to move one seat downwards cos they did not plan the seats well, we feel it quite disturbing when you are eating half way thru...

Next for the food, the food doesn't look appealing, sashimi so so, I dun find any very nice dish to promote. Service wise, we have to request a few times for our green tea...after a few dishes, my hubby went to toilet, maybe is nt the food, maybe...anyway, sorry to say I will not recommend this place.

I was passing by turf city to go GIANT to purchase some daily neccessity and decided to had lunch there with my family.

Was greeted by the staff very politely and they were smiling all the way till i left which really brighten our day and boost our appetite. The restaurant music was also very tranquil, music not too loud and not too soft, we still can chat with each other without being disturbed by the music.

Very pleased with the fact that my grandmother was not eating but was allowed to entered the restaurant with no additional charges. (Thanks to the kind lady whom is very elegant and sweet). She even offer my grandmother a bowl of noodle FOC which is true (Because i checked my bill after we exit). This lady also chat with us and ask us to comment on their food and services which can help them to improve.

Very humble and very polite! Value for money! Excellent Service!

I will visit again and recommend those whom haven't tried this restaurant to faster go try it!
