sushi palace in kingston

I haven't seen anyone post about this new all you can order sushi place. No, it's not a buffet. You sit down, order what you like from the kitchen and sushi menus, and then your food comes out made to order! The kitchen menu includes soups, salads, tempuras, goyoza, teryakis, etc. The sushi menu has sushi, sashimi, hand rolls, etc. The kitchen items come out as they are ready, and the sushi comes out one one big, beautiful platter for everyone to share. All this for only around $20 per person.

The food selection and food quality are better than most sushi buffets, since everything is made to order. However, please note that the sushi is not as good as in some a la carte sushi places. For $20, I don't expect it to be! Imagine seeing over 100 pieces of sushi on one plate... the experience is a lot of fun! I would especially recommend Sushi Palace for a mixed group, since it is easy for the sushi-averse to be adventurous and sample off the communal sushi platter.

Wait time: the two times I went, which were a Friday and a Sunday, we had to wait 45-60 minutes for a seat, this place is packed!

Recommended items: shrimp tempura, spicy kani salad, spicy tuna roll, specialty rolls

      Sushi Palace is located in a strip mall on Rt 27. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is well done. The address is 4437 Rt 27, Kingston, NJ.

    2. I have heard lots of great things about this place!
      My friend was chatting my ear off about how great this place is.

      Not a fan of buffets or the Mets but looking forward to giving this a try.

      1. Just a random side note - Kanoko Sushi Kendall Park NJ just north on 27th from Sushi Palace is now also offering all you can eat, fresh when you order Sushi.

        They had a sign on the door with the pricing.
        Could not read it because it was small or my eyes are getting old.

        In any case this place has been here forever and would guess competition from down the road is forcing them to change their business model.

          Had lunch at Kanoko Sushi Kendall Park NJ
          Same deal as Sushi Palace all you can eat
          Quality of fish about the same
          However the rolls were the perfect size rolled tight!

          19.95 all you can eat
          Had a seaweed salad - Yummy!
          Salmon Sushi - Good
          Yellowtail Sushi - Good
          Kiss of Fire Roll - Spicy Tuna and crunchies with White Tuna on top with spicy Mayo and Jalapeno Peppers - Very Good
          Shrimp Tempura roll - OK
          Dessert - Ginger Ice Cream

          They stress order all you want but DO NOT WASTE FOOD!
          I Love that.
          You will not leave hungry and you will definitely want to take a walk.

        2. Had Lunch here today. No Wait at Noon.
          Open 7 Days A Week.
          Cozy Restaurant did have a few other tables occupied.
          Sushi chefs very friendly and happy. Green tea was very good. Servers stoic.

          All you can eat 18.95 during the week.

          Really like their motto -
          Order all you want but eat all you order - Please do not waste food!

          Overall It was good.

          They provide you with two paper checklists.
          One for Sushi/Sashimi/Rolls and another for Kitchen items, soup, salad, apps, noodles, tempura, dessert, and more, you do not leave hungry.

          Simply check off what you want and voila your sushi orgy arrives.
          Tried the Salmon Sushi - good
          Yellowtail Sushi - ok
          Sushi portion was a perfect bite size but a lot of the rice fell apart while eating.
          Inari - Very good
          Veggie Tempura roll - ok - a little well done - and it was just sweet potato, but I like that, no worries.
          Peanut Avocado Roll - very good
          Pink Lady Roll - Crunch - Spicy Tuna - Tuna - Salmon - Avocado - Good but the roll fell apart while eating.

          Wasabi had super powers - soy and ginger also very good!

          They had signs posted in the restaurant that they have added more items to the all you can eat menu:
          Octopus Salad, BBQ Squid, Crazy Roll, Oyster Roll, Pepper Salmon.

          It is an amazing amount of food to choose from.

          1. We went to Sushi Palace again last night and now we have an additional roll recommendation- the softshell crab roll was very good. As usual, all the food was good and we'll be back.
