Best sushi buffet on Rockville Pike. Hidden just behind Congressional Shopping Center, this little restaurant offers a vast assortment of sushi, negiri, traditional Chinese and tempura. The sushi is the star here and I find myself having just one more plate until a over do it but leave happy just the same.

We were there for the buffet Sunday brunch. It has a nice selection of sushi, as well as a limited selection of other choices. Food was very fresh and well presented. The staff was very helpful. If you go on Sunday, don't plan on getting there late, We had arrived early, when we left, I noticed that some of the... More

Probably one of my favorite Japanese restaurants, especially the buffet which is now available for lunch and dinner. Great variety of sushi options both the traditional as well as the "California rolls" for those squeamish about "raw fish". But not only do they have sushi, with a staff of sushi chefs constantly creating more right behind the counter (a necessity... More

Variety and quality, a combination hard to find in a sushi buffet. Hinode is a great go to place, or even a pick up from place. Not a cheap lunch, but a good value for all you can eat good quality sushi and more. (they have other Asian food in addition to Sushi) All for one price.

They charge baby to eat here for NOTHING.. during my <1 hour lunch buffet, the server and manager interrupted me THREE TIMES to argue a charge for my baby who virtually ate nothing. The manager behaved like a miser. They did not care whether the customer was satisfied or not. Food and sushi are no where exceptional. I'd not recommend... More

I come here during lunch between 12 and 2:30 for the lunch buffet. For $15 you get 20 varieties of sushi tempura dishes soup and rice. You're in and get seated and they are super awesome and I take care of you every time you need something. Even when it's close to 2:30 they will make you another roll if... More

I am not a big fun of buffet style dining and try to avoid buffets even when in Vegas , but surprisingly this one at Hinode is something I would go for when I crave for sushi. Their Lunch buffet has great variety of sushi , including some specials and one without rice that tasted like a spring roll (forgot... More
