[Dallas] Seafood Buffets

Are there any good seafood buffets in the Dallas area in general and also are there any that include good lobster? I've noticed that Chinese restaurants seem to be big in this category.

Newbie question: Is there a way to search through previous posts or is it only manual.

    No idea on your seafood buffet.

        The chinese off 75 just south of Park behind Steak and Ale has pretty decent "buffet" sea food. This being said it's obviously not as good as lobster else were but not bad for the price.

        1. re: Webra1

          The big problem with T1 is the fact that they make really horrific rice. They don't wash the rice properly making it "crunchy" They also use sub par fish. The mix of these two items makes for a medicore sushi at best. In my opinion you are much better off to get real sushi for the same price, just don't eat as much.

        2. Osaka Sushi in West Plano is a pretty good value. I think it's somewhat better than Tokyo One. Living in the Lower Greenville area, I don't know if it's still open, but when I worked in West Plano it was always busy, so I'm assuming it's still there.

          Sushi Sapporo on Oak Lawn also has a pretty good lunch buffet. I haven't been in a few months, but it's about $15, and it sports fairly fresh sushi. For a buffet.

            Osaka's food and service has deteriorated in the last couple of visits. Staff is slow. Tokyo One is the place to go for cheap, fresh sushi buffet in my opinion.

              Actually both Osaka and T1 are owned by the same group. Depending on the day either one can be simply horrible or more or less okay. The bottom line is you get what you pay for. The better choice is to go for good Sushi and pay the price.

              If you are looking for a "fish" buffet but not necessarily just Sushi the better choice is Best Buffet in Plano on 19th & 75 behind Steak and Ale. While their Sushi is just okay the other seafood is acceptable.

              For Sushi buffets Sushi Sapporo is pretty good and the buffet at Isshin in Irving on MacArthur.
