For the buffet at Shin Tokyo, you get to choose one ramen (out of 7 choices), and all the white plate sushi on the trail. I had the tempura prawn ramen. The tempura prawns are tasty, but the ramen is kind of tasteless. The soup base is so not up to the bar!
My mate had the scallop ramen, it came out to be the similar tasteless ramen. Perhaps we should try their dry or spicy ramen.
Anyway, we then moved on to have the sushi buffet. To be fair, their sushi are actually quite good. I personally like the crab meats sushi stuffed in inari. The sweetness of the inari goes very well with the mayonnaise.
The eel sushi is well-marinated and grilled properly.
The wonton snacks is a no go! The outer sheet is too thick, and after deep-fried, the whole thing just turned so hard. Too hard to bite on and the filling is just too little portion.
The sweet prawn sushi is very fresh.
Another favourite of mine is the sushi roll with prawn tempura inside.
Overall speaking, the standard of the sushi is acceptable good, because you get what you pay for. However, I reckon they should really improve the taste of their ramen soup base.
