A Japanese buffet restaurant with a difference, this lively dining destination offers not only a wide spread of the usual Japanese dishes, but also has daily special food "surprises" so that regular diners can always try something new.

Review for food

The ambience was quite wonderful and peaceful. however for the varieties of food is kinda diasappointing for the value paid. Pricing can be reviewed and better revised. overall it is still fine if u love sashimi. Personally i love sashimi alot and i will come back for the sashmi. they also have limited dishes every 30mins , just wait and listen to the music when its broadcasted.

So we finally tried this Japanese buffet place (that has an outlet at Suntec apparently, but also one at Jurong Point) – it was something like $43++ per adult so we paid $100 in total. Why the price? They’ve got Alaskan King crabs and snow crabs on the seafood bar, as well as plenty of nigiri sushi and the occasional lobster. Plus, it’s a buffet! We certainly had our fill of crab that night!

Advice? Go for the king crab legs instead of the snow crab legs. The king crab legs are replenished much more infrequently than the snow crab legs, but they are pretty tasty.

We were pretty good about giving everything a fair trial. The prawns were fresh, the mussels not really worth eating, but the crab was the clear winner here. Just a squeeze of lemon will do, they are awfully briny (in a good way). They also provide these awesome japanese scissors that allow you to cut right through the crab shell like it was made of paper.

The soba dipping sauce was pretty nice, and you can dress it with all the scallions and seaweed you want. We had two helpings of this!
They also had this interesting/weird potato mochi thing.

There was a teppanyaki bar that fries up chicken, beef, vegetables, etc. for you so liangze got these beef cubes. They are super tender and marbled all the way through. It didn’t really seem to get much business though – I guess most people were there for the fresh seafood!

The miso soup was pretty ordinary, but you get to add your own taupok and tofu and scallions. At the soup station they also had some ginseng congee that we didn’t get to try. Unlimited soup/congee garnishes, like ginger, picked ginger, deep fried shallots, etc.

The best part of the dessert station was undeniably the Hokkaido lavender soft-serve ice cream. We had three cups of this. Best naked, without any toppings. They also had some rather good panna cotta, but everything else was completely underwhelming and not worth the caloric content.
One good thing about Kuishinbo is the fact that they limit the number of diners to the restaurant, so everyone gets a fair shot at the seafood. They don’t attempt to overbook the place, and if you have reserved a table there, you have it for the night, which explains why it’s so pricey I guess – they don’t have two sittings unlike other places like Cajun Kings where we routinely spend >$100 on crab.

One bad thing about Kuishinbo is the bell-ringing fiasco – now this is a unique feature to the restaurant – I have not heard of any other buffet joint “training” their customers quite so Pavlovianly. 

Would I go back? Probably not. But one never knows when another crab craving will hit. 

Note: The dinner buffet is cheaper at Jurong Point than at Suntec City, for obvious accessibility reasons. If you live in the West it’s probably more worth it to go to the Jurong Point one.

Horrid

That has to be the most overpriced buffet experience. None of my family members enjoyed it.

Firstly, there was no ambience to speak of. Granted it is a Japanese buffet but I did not just pay 40 dollars to eat at ishi Mura.

The variety was horrid too. There was only two types of sashimi, the ala-carte dishes were all unpalatable and the desserts seemed like an afterthought. Oh and their pointless specials of the hours? Completely unnecessary. Wait till someone falls and gets a concussion from rushing and there'll be a PR disaster on their hands. Why can't they just offer the dish to each table is beyond me.

I'd much rather have sakae or Nihon Mura for half the price. Or even one of those 30'dollar hotel buffets, which has more sashimi and sushi than this pathetic place.
