We have been to many sushi buffets, this one is exceptional. The Sushi is fresh every day and you can eat as much as you want without having to ask the sushi makers for more. They have crab legs that are always large and cooked perfectly. The buffet is clean and the rest of the food they make is also terrific. We eat at this restaurant at least once a week.

They have a good selection of sushi and cooked dish, though I just hope that we don't have to wait till the king crab legs tray are empty so that customers don't have to wait in line. If you want to save money print out a coupon from their website to get a 10% discount.

Quality is horrible - but what do you expect from an all you can eat Japanese restaurant. Fish tastes like rubber. Not a fan at all.

We are regular customers but the past number of visits have been one step worse than the one before.

Good selection has become boring and plain. Service is two thumbs down.

The straw that finally did it for us is the all day dinner price for Father's Day and no coupon accepted.

We came in for lunch and expected really different options since it is priced for dinner. Disappointing!! Same selections and the service is very awful.

We are not going back soon if we ever decide to give this place another chance.

Will stop recommending this place.

We've been frequenting Makkoli Seafood Buffet on Route 18 South in East Brunswick since the days before it was Makkoli and was under different ownership.It is our "go to" place to eat most often with the kids and our friends.There is a nice assortment of sushi including unagi, spicy tuna, yellow tail, tobiko, Spider rolls (soft shell crab), tempura shrimp rolls, etc. Hot food - both Chinese and Japanese. Clams, mussels, oysters, peel and eat shrimp. Soups, salads, and sashimi, and a dessert bar with ice cream, fruit, etc.

The quality of the food is very consistent and very good. The biggest issue is replenishment. On most days, not a problem. However, on weekends they get really crowded and some people at a buffet are like feeding time at the zoo; it's like they've never eaten before!. There are usually 3 - 5 sushi chefs working non-stop, but sometimes that still isn't enough.

Recommendation: go either during the week at any time, or earlier for dinner on the weekends (they re-open at 5:00 after their lunch break.) We try to get there around 5:30/6:00 on the weekends and that is safe!

I am the BUFFET KING, and I approve of this restaurant! Enjoy . . .
