It has been a while since Food In The Fox has had sushi and I bet you are just as sad as I am, looking through all the recent salads that have been on the menu. Well, Jet’s Sushi recently switched owners (and names) and we decided to give it a whirl, after hearing many good things about it. Island Sushi Buffet is the newest sushi establishment within the Darboy city limits.
Same Atomospher, Larger Selection
The place looks pretty much the same, with a few minor updates, such as new sushi boats and a few new coats of paint here and there. They even have a few of the same staff members. What did change, was the food selection. There was a much wider variety of food (above and beyond sushi), such as deep fried bananas, cheesecake ragoon, deep fried mushrooms, and other pastry like deserts. I love sushi, but gladly welcomed the new selection of items passing me by on the small boats. I must say while the overall selection was awesome, the sushi was somewhat blan. It all kind of tasted the same. Maybe we were just there at an off time?
This place may be the place to come when you are craving deep fried fair like food. I do not know what I enjoyed more; the deep fried green beans, deep fried bananas or deep fried mushrooms. They were all delicious! And the nice thing about it is that each serving size is relatively small, so you don’t have to feel too bad about eating the calorie laden morsels.
The new sushi chef was very friendly as well. She was making small talk with everyone while rolling the sushi and explaining some of the food items. The other staff members were constantly bringing items out of the kitchen to place on the small boats. And the price? $12.99 for the lunch buffet. This seems about right, considering it is AYCE.
