IS there any Good Sushi?

Great list havent tried them all but agree with what I have been to.

KAZU is on restaurant.com so you can save $23 if you buy $25 gift certificate for $2 when email regarding 80% off comes around (usually every other month).

Also have you tired Mahzu in Matawan/Aberdeen (Strathmore Shopping Center - Rt 34 and Lloyd) along with Kickys across the street. Mahzu is a great family restaurant since they also have the hibachi setups in back. Kickys service can be an issue if their takeout is very busy.

If you arent far from the intersection of Route 34 and Lloyd Road, Mahzu in Strathmore shopping center will not disappoint. They even have a hibachi room in back if you have kids. Its BYOB and liquor store is next door.

I think Kazu is on of the restaurants on restaurant.com, which means you can get a $25 gift certificate for $2.00 (two), if you wait for the 80% sale via email.

New Sushi Buffet in Middletown

Also if willing to go to Strathmore Shopping Center (near intersection of Lloyd Road and Route 34 -- 12 min from Middletown), Mahzu is one of the best Sushi restaurants and have a hibachi setup in back. Across the street is Kickys another nice Sushi restaurant.

New Sushi Buffet in Middletown

Two things I found were off the menu... brown rice (suishi and rolls) and green tea ice cream (included in price).

Appetizers were fine. Endamame and seaweed salad along with gyoza were fine although it took a while to come... they tend to bring everything at once which may be the plan but seemed we waited for food to be brought to us more than we actually ate.

If you order the scallops teryiaki order a few of them, when it finally came, they took 1 scallop and sliced it in 4 pieces. Salmon Teriyaki was over cooked.

Otherwise food was OK, not great, but didnt expect much so wasnt disappointed. Suishi which I got with brown rice didnt have any wasabi on the rice (under the fish) which I thought was how it was made but I was glad it had the brown rice.

The restaurant that I ate at with a similar model (in Florida) kept the order slips on the table, here I needed to keep asking for another set and everything seemed rather slow (service wise) even though we were 1 of 3 couples in the restaurant.

Thanks for the heads-up. I think my wife and I are going to give it a shot tonight. I've eaten in a few AYCE places in Florida, and with the seafood so fresh these places are great. There is also a version where it is a buffet but the cooks/sushi chefs behind the counter make things as they are used up to keep things fresh.
