Good selection of sushi, Japanese & Korean dishes, as well as meats and seafood for grilling at the Sambokojin EDSA branch. An even wider selection of dishes including roast meats can be found in their other branches (e.g. SM Fairview) for only about a hundred pesos more per person.

We attended as part of a work outing. Essentially it's a huge buffet. The quality of the food was very good considering the range of options. I mainly stuck to the sushi which was pretty good.

The last time we were here was about a year ago. Do not do a walk in if you can avoid it at all. Also, do not eat here if it's busy and you get seated after 7:30 pm. Some items looked picked over like the roast meat station. The dishes have changed some and the missus was able to try the roast lamb. I got the roast beef. My beef was tough but the lamb was really good. I can't remember if they have a infra-red light to keep the meat warm but it seem to be dried out. Many of the popular dishes like seafood got snapped up very quickly. I had to hover over the ebi tempura tray with several other folks waiting for a refill. The guests were picking the shrimp out of the server's tray and when the tray was put down I was able to get one. The sushi was good and and the food you cook at the table was also good. The offerings seemed less than our last visit and the dessert area was just okay. Nothing stood out. I feel that if you are going to make the effort to eat here they should at least have the items available without you waiting too long for a refill. The serving staff were very nice and always accommodating. I know that food cost are always going up but whatever you serve should be tasty and worth the price.

They really have great food. This particular branch has more selections compared to Eastwood but I did feel like the tables were too tight to each other. Replenishment was not as fast as the speed of customers getting off the serving plates and they did not keep the place as tidy. They should really improve their customer service and start by being attentive.
