Customer Testimonial

“First time visiting Suki-Ya .. what an enjoyable experience! The fatty beef was tender and the soup bases (we had the kimchee and butaniku) were perfect for our meats & veggies. Good value for money, with such a wide variety of food and drinks available. Ice Cream Dessert is an additional charge, but they have other desserts like fruit and jellies together with the price of your buffet. I must say the Hokkaido Milk Pudding was out of this world.”

Their drinks aren’t included in the buffet prices, but servings are massive and you wouldn’t need a second cup. Order the beef short ribs! Very tender and possibly the cut we had.“
