Korshi Sushi & Korean Buffet

**Update 4/27/15 Korshi has closed and has been closed for some time now**

For what seems like many months there was a Coming Soon sign where Nichi Bei Kai used to be. There was speculation that it was going to become a sushi/Korean buffet. The same day I read Melodi's comment on HowChow my husband had also driven past Wegmans and saw signs that said Korshi was Now Open.

Melodi mentioned that it had received mixed reviews (only 3 reviews so far) on Yelp. No where on the signs did it mention Korean BBQ. I think that might be why some people have been disappointed.  The signs say, Sushi and Korean Buffet.

We walked in and were seated right away. Our waitress said that their soda machine was broken so they only had water or hot tea. No big deal there.

We went right up to the buffet and was surprised by how many different buffet items they had. There were at least 15 different sushi rolls to choose from and the same amount of Korean offerings. At the end of the sushi buffet table were lots of banchan like kimchi, bean sprouts, and pickled radish. I'm sure the food will vary from day to day but some of the Korean offerings last night included fried rice, miso soup, spicy rice noodles, japchae, fried mackerel, stir fry tofu, fish katsu, chicken teriyaki, bbq ribs, sweet/spicy fried chicken wings, baked salmon, stuffed mussels, and chicken alfredo. One of these things is not like the other....

Like one of the Yelp reviewers said, there was no dessert just fresh fruit which was fine with me since I never save room for dessert anyway. I suggested to my husband that they should get their desserts from Shilla Bakery. I love that place.

For dinner it was $18.95. The place gets points for variety and taste. Also, the service was good. Our glasses were never left empty and our finished plates never sat on our table for longer than a few seconds. If I had to rate it on 4 stars, I'd give it a 2.5. For me, it was lacking a bit on those authentic Korean dishes that I'm used to at Kimco Seafood's sushi/Korean buffet.
