I come here once a year, when I'm in town for an annual meeting. It has improved from what I remember last year. They've updated the decor, the dessert station seemed larger, there is a fresh-to-order tempura station and more soups. There was an excellent variety of items and the quality varies from average to very good. I look forward... More

I use to like this place coz of the crab legs & dessert but now😰 crab legs are so salty and dessert choices not so good anymore. I would prefer lunch over dinner here

In my opinion O-Nami is the best Asian restaurant in SD. A buffet of all the seafood you can imagine. Make sure to check the opening hours. A bit pricey but worth your money. Drinks not include but a glass of water is enough to rinse it all down.

Wow this place is awesome. A hidden gem away from the harbor and downtown crowds. This restaurant is located in a mall. Belief Be me when I say you will not regret going here for lunch / diner. The selection of fresh food is huge. We enjoyed crawfish, clams, oysters, snow crab, warm and cold dishes. I wish we had... More

Good sushi selection, tempura bar was good, as was soba and ramen bar. Crab legs. otherwise, relatively standard buffet fare. A little pricey for the available selection.

First, what's good about Onami. The wait staff was plentiful and came around to fill your water or take your finished plate frequently, that was definitely a plus. However, the food was what you can expect for a buffet - a lot of not so good food. The sushi was meh, the tempura soggy and its sauce too heavy. The... More

Lots of sushi and rolls, and never cheap out on the sashmi and crab legs either. There are a tonne of different types of food including ramen, udon, soba, and made-to-order tempura too. Definitely come hungry because there's so much you want to eat. This is the 2nd time we've been here and on both occasions the letdown has to... More

Very good Japanese buffet with a wide variety of sushi. Raw oysters, sashimi and crabs are definitely a plus. There are other Asian food as buffet as well. Good value for the money and definitely recommended.

This claims to be a sushi Asian buffet. However the sushi bar area was always empty. Not because there were a lot of people but because they wouldn't make any more. Literally you pay to eat sushi and this place keeps there sushi bar basically empty. Don't waste your time or money here. There are a lot of better places... More
