Best Japenese for the money 7/27/2009

I love this place. Their lunch is pretty good, but no place can beat their dinner buffet. I've ate here about 10 times. I'd eat here more often if it was closer. Their quality of food is second to no buffet. I love their Duck. Pros: Dinner Cons: Lunch more

Watch your credit card charges.... 10/1/2008

Food was good and I had a good experience here until the next day. WATCH THE CHARGE ON YOUR CREDIT CARD BILL. I paid via credit card and slashed a ""0"" there the tip amount and the wrote in the total amount because I left a $15 CASH TIP. Well, I checked my online statement this morning and they charge me an additional tip. So, basically this was unauthorized charge. Pros: Good Food Cons: Unauthorized charges on my credit card... more

Always a winner 12/5/2007

I have been going here for years and always been satisfied. I enjoy the seafood as much as the sushi.\r My wife is from Brazil and is an extremely finicky eater..especially regarding rice and seafood. But she loves Kirin's. I have recommended Kirin's to many friends, and everyone of them has loved it. Most sushi restaurants are too expensive for what you get. Kirin provides a lot of options at a reasonable price. \r Go Hungry, leave happy.... Pros: Lots of different sushi at a very reasonable price Cons: I wish they were open all day long. more

Kirin II - FM 1960 Is Excellent Value for the Money - Great Sushi! 9/22/2007

We have been to this retaurant about a dozen times and we have never been disappointed.\r \r The trick is to go there early in the evening, when the buffet lines are short, as the the restaurant fills up quickly!\r \r I disagree with some of the negative opinions because $22 per person for ""all you can eat sushi, sashimi, snow crabs legs, oysters AND boiled shrimp"", can not be found anywhere else in town!\r \r As another patron pointed out, 1/2 dozen oysters at most seafood restaurants go for $6.95. Can't beat the value and the quality for fresh seafood!\r \r Servers: I think they are attentive, refill drinks as needed, without asking and they take away dirty dishes fast, keeping the tables looking fresh.\r \r Food Quality: Is very good, food trays are kept looking good, half-empty trays are replaced with full ones.\r \r Cleanliness: I've never found the place to be dirty. Floors are tidy, tables are clean, dishes/utensils are very clean. And, so are the bathrooms! \r \r Overall Opinion: Very Good. We go there mostly for the fresh seafood, sushi and sashimi! Pros: Fresh sushi/sashimi made continuously, oysters, snow crab legs. Cons: Can get crowded, especially week-end nights more

Good price and service 7/4/2007

I went on a Sunday right when it opened and everything was fresh! The the restuarant quickly filled up but my server was very attentive there were never any dirty plates on the table and my diet coke stayed full. I think that this is a good value. Twenty bucks for all the sushi you can eat. I promise the snow crab looked like king crab! My waitress even brought I melted butter without me asking. I guess there wasn't a lot of hot foods, but for all the crab, boiled shrimp, oysters on the half shell and sushi who needs hot foods. A dozen oysters in other establishments start at $6.95 this is a good value. Pros: Assortment of sushi and large crabs! Cons: Hours of operation on Sunday more

Why go to Kirin II when there are so many other great choices? 6/1/2007

The Galleria area of Houston has dozens of oriental restaurants; sushi, buffet style and others. You can get a good fill-up for about $10 at a lot of them, and their food quantity and selection, and the restaurant decor will be better than what you get at Kirin for $22. I don't understand how Kirin stays in business. Not that the food was awful, but they are practically surrounded by people doing the same thing better and cheaper. Pros: Food was OK Cons: High price - low selection. In contrast with most buffet places that offer low price and high selection more

The Quality is dropping 4/9/2007

Every time I went to Kirin, I felt the foods are becoming worse. The fishes are so not fresh. The refills of dishes and water are so slow. Server or bus person do not pay attention to the customer. They do not bus the plate from customer?s desk. Dozo or Miyako have better buffet than Kirin does. Pros: all you can eat sea urchin sushi Cons: quality of the food and service, location more

A Great Place to Start 12/1/2005

As with anything food that is served in a buffet format the quality is not the best. I have found that the price for lunch is sufficient for the desperate sushi patron looking for a quick fix. If said patron is desperate enough to venture into the Willowbrook Pseudo Sushi Cuisine in the first place. Dont get me wrong. I frequent this particular restaurant once a week, and recommend it to anyone who wants to try something resembling sushi before jumping in wallet first to one of the more authentic establishments in the area. (By area I mean not the immediate vicinity, perhaps somewhere between Champions Forest and Stubner Airline.) If you do happen to find yourself visiting Kirin in the evening make sure you REQUEST a Spider Roll from the chef. It baffles me every time I think about it, but Kirin has the best spider rolls around. Pros: all you can eat, best spider roll, reasonably priced Cons: pseudo sushi, buffet format, little debbie dessert more

A bit expensive 9/15/2005

The food is ok; it's typical of ""buffet"" food. The price is a bit on the high end considering the fact that the selection is not that wide. I wish they have kid menu. Pros: Clean, Attentive Cons: price more

not very good, but for a buffet, decent 8/8/2003

i've been to kirin several times, mostly because it's a cheap fix for a sushi craving if you go during the day. the selection is ok, but being a buffet, it is very difficult to get fresh food, and i find that the sushi is of very poor quality. Pros: all you can eat Cons: not fresh, crowded/noisy more

Kirin was great 2/21/2003

I'm normally wary of buffets but this one was great, everything was very fresh and clean! Pros: Inexpensive, prompt seating, fresh food Cons: somewhat dark lightin more
