WARNING!! beware of this disgusting restaurant – WARNING: do not eat at this AWEFUL restaurant
THE FOOD IS TERRIBLE. Employees are miserable and nasty.
THEY REFUSED TO SERVE ME SASHIMI even though the advertisement said they have both SUSHI and SASHIMI.
FOOD prepared hours earlier. NO FRESH FOOD COOKED. SITS UNDER WARMING LAMPS. GROSS FOOD.
SOUPS ARE COLD.
COMPLETELY GROSS RESTAURANT. EATING AREA SMELLS.
SUSHI is the worst I have ever had. There IS DIFFERENT quality of fish for SUSHI and SASHIMI. THEY SERVE THE LOWEST QUALITY OF FISH. AND THEY DO NOT SERVE ALL FISH. VERY LIMITED TYPES. They serve CHEAPEST cuts of fish. Caution eating raw fish. Poor sanitary standards.
*** MAJOR RIP OFF OF A RESTAURANT *** THEY CUT FOOD QUALITY.
THIS IS A DISASTER and should not be in business!!!
AND IF YOU TRY AND COMPLAIN or ask for a refund they make excuses and excuses and excuses.
ZERO STARS SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO TO A REAL PROFESSIONAL SUSHI AND SASHIMI RESTAURANT.
AVOID THIS RESTAURANT or learn from your mistakes.
UPDATE: it is my understanding that this GROSS restaurant was sold off from the TODAI corporate and now operates under a franchise agreement. THEY SHOULD LOSE THEIR FRANCHISE IMMEDIATELY. DISGUSTING PLACE TO THROW AWAY GOOD MONEY. CAREFUL NOT TO GET FOOD POISONING. THE SUSHI (fish) THEY SERVE PUTS YOU AT RISK.
Thoroughly Disgusted – While going to the bathroom here, an employee was taking a leak next to me. He left without washing his hands. And later I saw him making California Rolls!!!
I nearly vomited, told the manager and he just rolled his eyes, we left disgusted never to return.
Thorough Seafood Buffet with Good Value – Todai is always a treat. The variety of seafood is very good. From chilled shrimp, tempura shrimp & jumbo whole shrimp, to delicious dungeness crab, it's a big buffet. This isn't Four Seasons quality, nor is it an extravagant price for what you get. The variety of sushi rolls is good, and it includes some specials like salmon skin rolls, dragon rolls and dynamite rolls. You can order a hand roll to order, too! There were three sashimi options- salmon, tuna & tilapia, all tasty. There is also a variety of mussels, both cold and hot. The seaweed salad is delish, and there was a good ceviche option, too. There is a nice dessert buffet with delicious walnut tarts, mini crème brûlées, creme puffs and a crepe station. This is a cafeteria atmosphere and the service isn't grand, but I go back again and again for the variety and decent quality at a price you can't find anywhere.
Can I give it ZERO STARS? – Here are the facts:
* $30 per person for dinner
* Pizza and sliced ham
* Sushi made by Mexicans
* School cafeteria environment
* Zero service
* Bathroom stench permeates buffet
* Run by a bunch of cheap Koreans
The last point explains a lot. Avoid this dump.
Too Expensive – Very expensive buffet for lunch, food is not that great either. Either you love or hate sushi, and the sushi here is pretty low grade, sushi lovers will be disappointed.
Disappointed – We spent nearly $150 for a family of four, this was very pricey for the quality of food offered. The sushi buffet was limited and many plates/pieces were picked over. The hot food section had some basic fish dishes, most were luke-warm and not very tasty.
We never saw our waiter and many tables around us were stacked sky-high with plates of partially eaten food - we were probably not the only ones disappointed.
We'll be looking else where in the future.
Yuck – TODAI GAVE ME A BAD CASE OF EXPLOSIVE DIARRHA
WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!!
Uhh... my stomach still hurts...
REALLY BAD!!! – See that bump on the Yellow Guy's head? It's from all the angry customers beating on him for their money back.
Seriously, family of four will run you over 120 bucks!!! And it's not even good food... what a rip. Save yourself the money and pick-up sushi at Dominicks... it's actually better.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME EATING HERE!!! – FOOD IS MEDIOCRE, PRICES KEEP GOING UP, MANAGEMENT IS THE WORST.
If not for a handful of cordial/hard working servers, there is absolutely no reason to go here. It is what it is... When it comes to the quality of the fare; An all-you-can-eat buffet. If it's quality you're looking for... keep looking! I've had better Supermarket Sushi. My family and I had been loyal customers since they first opened their doors 6 years ago. Until this year. Forget the rapidly declining quality (1st year was actually GOOD) and ever increasing rates, the service we were shown on our last visit has lost them an entire family of previously loyal customers. The BOY who claimed to be the Manager could not have been more rude and disrespectful. He obviously has no clue when it comes to service or restaurant management. The insults hurled at my mother who questioned some charges on the bill would have, in any other case, constituted an invitation to the parking lot. His attitude and demeanor was that of a PUNK on a power trip. Unless Ownership decides to better control their Management and staff, I will NEVER spend my hard earned money on that kind of service again.
Very good food, but rude crew manager – The restaurant is very good food-wise. The sushi, sashimi, tempura, teriyaki, oysters, mussels, crab legs, seaweed salad, kimchi, udon are all excellent! The food servers are all polite and courteous except for Ms. Park, the supposed to be crew manager or chief server. Ms. Park is very rude, unsmiling, always frowning and does not remember regular customers. She insists on checking senior citizen?s ID even though the customers are regularly dining almost every week. While we enjoy the food, we somehow feel unwelcome by the attitude of Ms. Park. We have witnessed some customers walking out of the restaurants after a confrontation with Ms. Park. If she could only change her attitude, the restaurant could attract more customers. Even her crew of food servers are not happy with her attitude and have been complaining.
