THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nippon Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A noontime crush of business folk---and plenty others too---salute the copious sushi/sashimi buffet. For a ridiculously low flat fee, you can eat yourself under the banquette that holds trays and platters of freshly made rolls of every type and description. Other goodies, from rice to fried dumplings, line the buffet bar. Better yet, you can flip through the menu for a selection of tempura, teriyaki, Korean barbecue, and even a Japanese hamburger. Chances are you will have overeaten by the time dessert rolls around, which may only be fresh fruit. In the evening, the sushi buffet vanishes, and in its place is a sushi bar. But once again, the full menu is worth exploring, such as one of the grilled dishes, and do complement your meal with some Japanese beer or saké.
