This place is foul.
Before I get to the incredible nastiness of this place, some background: This place sits where the old Tokyo Sushi Buffet used to be, next to Best Buy on McKnight Road, and the Tokyo was great for sushi. There was a massive u-shaped buffet, with sushi around 2/3rds of it, the sushi chefs in the middle cranking out many different varieties of sushi and sashimi. There was a grill, and a pretty extensive buffet of your standard Asian buffet staples, but most everyone went there for the sushi. Unfortunately, the Tokyo had recurring problems with its steam tables, and was cited several times by the Health Department for holding food at unsafe temperatures. The problem would be corrected, but then several months later, the same thing, until the place abruptly closed over a year ago. TJ's recently opened in its place.
When walking into TJ's, I was struck by an overpowering stench of fish. Now I like fish, but this was not a "good" fish smell. The sushi selection is miniscule, nothing like the old Tokyo buffet, and was dominated by imitation crab and cream cheese. The spring rolls stank of old cabbage. The squid was actually pretty good, not rubbery, but was coated with a raw-flour tasting batter. The shell on shrimp was breaded before being fried, who the heck breads shell-on shrimp? You just wind up peeling the breading off with the shell! Ribs were fatty and tough. Crawfish were mushy. There were oysters and mussels on the raw bar, but given the off-putting fishy smell, I wasn't about to try them. If you wanted beef, there was one choice, roast, and you have to carve it yourself. There were two things I had here that were good. The seaweed salad was fantastic, and the baby clams pretty good. The rest of the buffet is your bog-standard Asian buffet stuff, poorly prepared and in tasteless sauces. Oddly, the entire staff was Asian, except for the cook at the grille, who was Hispanic. Now there's nothing wrong with a Hispanic chef/cook, even in an Asian restaurant, I just found it odd. Verdict: Not worth the trip.
Three hours later, colon blow. Avoid this place!
