Yes, there are plenty of swank and sleek sushi joints on the beach, with low lighting and creative hand rolls. But sometimes all you want is sushi, and lots of it. California rolls have become the comfort food of the 21st Century, and at Tokyo Bowl — a small restaurant with big flavor — you can get waaaay comfortable in a roomy booth and order all the rolls you want. For $14. That price also includes soup and salad and a small dessert. All of the staples are here: octopus, eel, tuna, tempura. Service is efficient, competent, and friendly. Ambiance is laid-back, with soft jazz and a wooden Buddha or two smiling down on your tekka roll. If you can't wait around, there's takeout and a drive-through window. And a word about the dessert: Try the fried cheesecake roll. We were skeptical, but the oozing, creamy brown-sugar-cheese mixture was almost orgasmic. In a comforting way.

why everyone say kyojin is so good?? it was mediocre at best .. the quality is just not as good or fresh as Taisho .. plus at the end of the night they put everything in tupperware presumably for the nest day .. they took away have the food and close the habachi grill before most people could even order about a hour before closing

People... Kyojin Japanese Buffet in South Miami on US 1 is THE BEST for Sushi! I love sushi... have eaten it everywhere in Miami and Kyojin rivals even the expensive sushi places on the beach! Best thing is that it is a buffet... has awesome hot foods and a hibachi grill and you don't have to order and wait! I hate the waiting part... you just walk up and get whatever you want. My advice is to get there early as it fills up FAST!! I have been to the Tokyo Bowl before... I wan't impressed. It wasn't bad... just not as good as Kyojin. I felt like I was eating in one of those old Kodak Drive-Up Film processing shacks... remember those? LOL. Taisho is also pretty good for sushi... although the Broward location is much better than the Coral Gables location. Not bad for quick fix but their selection is not that great when compared to Kyojin... and you have the extra choice of hot foods and hibachi to book. :

Forget these previous reviewers if you are looking for great sushi without the South Beach pretentiousness and you dont want a Latino impersonation of it. Tokyo Bowl by far is great value for the $$, service is great and the staff is just very intuitive and tend not to interrupt conversation of large groups of people. Food is great and no nonsense.

Kyojin is Definitely the Best!!! You can have a variety of rolls and no waiting! It is an all you can eat asian restaurant with a hibachi grill!

Down south near South Miami Hospital a couple lights south of Sunset Place.

I went there with a friend a couple of times, hoping that the second time would be better, I was wrong. The service as mentioned above is extremely slow, the rolls have twice as much as rice as they should. My best advice is a sushi place called Kyojin on US1 and 67th on the left side coming from north. It is amazing!!!!

I went there with a group of friends and had a great time. The service is SLOW.... and your order can get "lost" sometimes...the sushi is good, the meat/steak thing from the hot menu is the BEST though... all in all, i guess it was everything I could expect from an all you can eat sushi fast food joint. I really wish they had brown rice with their sushi, then it would have been perfect. I think I will have to try the place the other user suggested, you know, for a comparison.

Gross! Try Spyro just north of 79th and Biscayne (on the right) for an all you can eat sushi that is not so "fast-foodlike". There's almost never anyone in there, the services is good, and occasionally there's a live piano player.

I agree. It seems there are quite a few aquaintances, perhaps directly linked to Kyojin. Please, give me a break !! Can't compare a small, personal-oriented place with a madhouse type buffet, where people almost push each other to have access to the food. Been to Kyojin a few times. Where is the sashimi? Not too much salmon either. And yes, loud, very loud place, and fast paced, "production line" oriented.Tokyo Bowl, quite contrary, quiet, local oriented. For the past 7 years I've been enjoying their sushi, and good, friendly service. Away from all tourist trap areas, the quality of their foodwhich is teyh same, if not better than most places charging five times as much. Where else can you eat such a variety of sushi, including sashimi and ikura (caviar) for 20 bucks ??
