Sushi buffet. I agree with the last guy. The way he described it, I think I ate there the same day. If you go to their restaurant before closing time, instead of turning you away, they take you in. Then they rush you to get out. And they do not replace any of the food. The food was hard and stale and old. I would of gladly left if they said they were closing, but they were so greedy they took my family and myself in to eat their nasty leftovers. I have not eaten their since.
Avoid going after 7:45pm or you'll get left overs. I had enjoyed this buffet in the past. But, it took just one night to change my mind and never to return again. Arrived there around 7:45pm (they close at 9:00pm) and the restaurant was preparing to clean up already. The sushi were dry. So dry, I was surprised that they left those out for us to eat. The rice and the cut rolls were as hard as a rock. I'll be surprise if those pass the health inspection. And they made no effort to make fresh one for the newly arrived customers. Most of the food was gone and the buffet tables were messy. Within 15 minutes sitting down, we received the tab on our table. We felt totally rushed. We left early anyway since there's not much to eat. We paid the full price of $50 for two people and we felt like we just helped ourselves to some left over food.
Excellent seafood/sushi buffet in the San Gabriel Valley.
Most people in Southern California know the sushi/seafood buffet called Todai. Most, thankfully, are unaware of a great alternative tucked away in West Covina. It's similar is style...in that it's a buffet and they have sushi and seafood. However, the choices are often very different...and sometimes a little more authentic to the Japanese roots that created places like this.
Onami is smaller than most Todai restaurants. This can be a plus as there are fewer diners to fight with and less noise. One drawback of this location is that it's in the mall. So, sometimes it does get a little loud despite the smaller dining room.
If you're in the area, give it a try.
