Kuishi-bo is a buffet style restaurant mainly serving Japanese dishes. There is a great variety of food to choose from, that you will probably feel lost and don't know where to start if it is your first time being there.
First of all, it is the sushi and the sashimi. Their salmon sashimi is really fresh, and it is one of the dishes that I will keep eating. The sushi is not bad either, but unless you want to stuff your stomach with too much rice, I wouldn't recommend you to eat too much of it. They have a variety of salad and appetisers too, including the japanese baby octopus. Besides the fishes, they also have a lot of raw seafood such as prawns, mussels, crabs, lobsters etc, so it is great for seafood lover!
Then there is the cooked food section, which usually includes some fried rice, fried noodles, stir fried vegetables and eggs etc, nothing really special, but mainly our staple food.
The fried food section is even better, with tempura prawns, chicken satay, chicken wings, soft shell crab and more, so indulge yourself! Not too oily and the tempura prawns are not too "flourly", and thus remains one of my top favourites as well. Japanese food such as Oden, Chawanmushi, paper steamboat, soba, various soup and porridge are also available.
They also have a Teppanyaki section, which will only be made upon order. There are clips on each table with your table number on it, so you just need to bring the clips along when you order, and the food will be served to you when it is ready. Choices are such as salmon, beef, chicken, duck etc. Everything is fabulous!
Great variety of desserts, fruits and drinks as well. A lot of cakes, waffles, chocolate fondue, marshmallows will certainly please your sweet tooth. They have many different types of tea and coffee to choose from as well.
The price may seem a little high but I would say that it is completely worthwhile for what they offer. For buffet, this is actually very cheap, and the quality of the food is not compromised either. The lunch will be 28.90 on weekdays and 32.90 on weekends, while dinner is 41.90 on weekdays and 45.90 on weekends. The dishes served for lunch and dinner is rather similar, except that the dinner has more seafood and special limited dishes of the day. So for those who will like to try it, you should go for the lunch if the dinner price is too high for you.
For those who will like to eat great food at a great price, but do not want to overeat, I would recommend you to choose the 60 minute lunch price, which is just 21.90. You can still eat everything like the normal buffet, just that you have a time limit of 60 minutes. So it is good for working adults with a limited time for lunch break as well. Just remember to watch out for the time!
Another thing, remember to make reservations if you plan to go for dinner or on weekends, because it may get very crowded, and you may need to queue for quite a while before getting in. On lunch time, there is less crowd.
My verdict: Strongly recommended, a must-try for all Japanese food lover and buffet lover!
