Brand New: Teaneck Sushi Buffet, Teaneck, NJ
Teaneck Sushi Buffet is now the third made to order All You Can Eat sushi place to open nearby in less than 2 years. Of course the name Teaneck Sushi Buffet is slightly misleading, there is no buffet (but hey, who’s counting). Though we do have a growing concern that our pants may no longer fit if we have to keep trying new All You Can Eat spots every week. They also have an a la carte menu with a large selection of sushi and other Japanese-style dishes including an entire Asian “fusion” section of the menu. The Teaneck Sushi Buffet space isn’t huge (maybe 40-50 seats) but not at all cramped. It’s nothing fancy but the quick and attentive service are major positives that they have going for it.
When ordering the “buffet”, the setup at Teaneck Sushi Buffet is exactly the same as the setup at Sushi Village in Westwood, Kazuki Sushi in River Vale and Bamboo in Northvale. Diners are given options of hot and cold kitchen dishes and various sushi & roll options. Here there are two sheets: one labelled “Kitchen”, the other labelled “Sushi Bar”. Choices include salads, hot and cold apps (edamame, shumai, yakitori, calamari, etc), soups, tempura, and teriyaki. Sushi chocies include sashimi, sushi, rolls (maki) and special rolls. We noticed a few kitchen dishes we haven’t seen at other spots like Kalbi (Korean BBQ beef) and Rock shrimp which was nice. One thing of note: The place is so similar to Sushi Village in that the sheets are the same size, font, etc. Did someone leave Sushi Village for their own greener pastures?
Pricing is also simple, on weekdays the price is $19.99 and on the weekends it is $21.99. It also appeared that fountain soft drinks were free refills which is slightly different than the other AYCE sushi haunts. Better, worse or equal?
