Great place for sushi (and the other stuff). The staff was friendly and efficient. Everything was clean (no sticky tables) and the restrooms are quite nice. Of course the sushi is the reason you come here and you won;t be disappointed. They have a good selection and it's all fresh and tasty. You may not get the best cuts of fish but who's to complain for the price. There was a small group waiting to get in so they opened a few minuted early. By the time we were done the place was almost filled which is always a good sign.
When I went to Todai with my friends, it was my first time. Actually, I eat sushi many times. But this restaurant/buffet was amazing! I ate many sushi I want! They are all so delicious!!! I wanna to eat sushi at that place again!
I went there about 2 years ago, and I remember it was very good, because it was my first all you can eat sushi buffet experience. i enjoyed it fair enough, however, it could've been I was too hungry at the time. But i do remember that it was ok... I love sushi and so I love that I can eat as much as i want... but note this: its a buffet, not the top of the line restaurant. The service then was nice I remember too. I am goin back there tonite w/ my parents, we'll see.
The food: if you were to go to a real sushi restaurant, you would spend at least $20: each sushi plate being around $7- $8 each. So think you would get all the sushi you want... plus more (crab legs :) ) I definitely think $20ish is definitely expensive, but its sushi! and seafood, not the cheapest kind of food out there.
Todai has an excellent variety of sushi and due to the large number of customers, the items are very fresh. Their dessert choices are as good as other Todai's but they have the added feature of a made to order dessert crepe.
We have been coming here for many years; overall we have always enjoyed every dish they have to offer; which are many...the service is good...sadly we showed up w/i their closing hour...plenty of fresh dishes available but they began cleaning w/pinesol and we lost our appetite...pricey...what a waste of $$ and time...
My parents just came back recently from an oversea business trip. So I thought that it would be nice to spend our quality family dinner over at Todai Westminster, California. Just right when we entered the restaurant, there was a young gentleman greeted us:�Irassaimase! Table for 3?� I answered yes, and the gestured to us to wait at the other corner and someone would be right with us. So, we went ahead and sat down at the chairs that been laid out at that corner. Our waiting time was around 10 minutes. During that time, the 2 team leaders, Maggie Lee and Kyle, walked in and out, passed us at least 4 times total. However, none of them acknowledged our presence. Even though I was starring at them both, there was no eye contact in return. Was that how team leaders, managers on duty should act? And certainly, the Restaurant did not provide an extra mile services. I know there would be time that the Restaurant is swamped with customer, that was why we sat down and waited patiently. Is it not the managers� job to make sure that everything was under controlled, and going smoothly? It only takes 10 seconds up most just to say: �Hi! How are you?� or �Have you been helped?� or �I am so sorry for your waiting, but I will be right you�
It turned out that the young gentleman that greeted us �warmly� at the beginning also did not inform his managers about our party. And as I mentioned, each manager have made contact to him at least twice every time he/she walked out to the desk. How irresponsible!
A Caucasian couple showed up, and got served right away. They were about to be seated by Kyle when I stopped them and said that I was there first. That man finalized our already awful night by a racist comment, and ruined it all. He went: �This is America; you have to stand up to wait to be seated�
I walked out of the Restaurant, and called the Restaurant back. Kyle told me that it was my fault leaving the Restaurant, and he was too busy to notice us.
