Ru San's Sushi Buffet
Ru San's Sushi buffet served Monday thru Saturday is pretty hard to beat. All the sushi you can eat for under $10 is one hell of a deal. Some hot food is available as well. I like the fried chicken wings and the fried calamari. The real calling card is the sushi. Both maki (the rolls) and the nigiri (fish on top of a pad of rice) are available. They are very busy which makes me feel comfortable about freshness. Sadly for the most part they only use 3 types of fish. Salmon, Tuna and crab appear in an amazing variety of different sushi presentations. On rare occasions I have seen shrimp, white tuna, mackerel, snapper and even the occasional hand roll. I would like to see this variety in fish more often. I hope you don’t take me the wrong way this place rocks and when I leave I always feel like a trained seal that has just consumed twice his body weight in bait. The place has a very cool and yet madcap atmosphere. Not that it matters but, very little of the help is Japanese but hey godfather digs diversity.
