Not a lot of options but what they do have is super yummy. Quality over quantity and best sushi from a buffet restaurant

They do not clean their shrimp properly. I use to love this place until the day I noticed the shrimp tasted funny. Upon inspecting it I noticed they had not deveined the shrimp. I ask about them serving the shrimp with the poop still in it and their response was they didn’t have time to clean the poop out. If I didn’t like it not to eat it.. Very rude. I expected more as what use to be a frequent customer. I’ve never been back.

KICKED OUT of JIN's BUFFET for WRITING my BOOK

The only thing I spend money on is eating out, not high on the hog, mind you, but so I don't have to cook and focus on getting this 3rd novel out. I NEVER go anywhere to eat at "Peak Time Rushes," I don't like crowds ... I tip well ... sit off to the side ... and am quiet.

The places I go like my business, they invite me to stay as long as I like, and I've listed some of them in "Acknowledgments" of my books.

I started going to Jin's Buffet in Conover a year ago in part due to the VA Discount of Free Drink, their coconut chicken, and the beef tips. I've been going pretty much every Wednesday and Saturday, sometimes on Sundays ... regularly. My regular is a plate of fruit ... a few minutes later a plate of meat, vegetables, and rice noodles ... then a couple ice pops or fudge bars. ALWAYS ... I am working hard at my laptop.

Today, however, as I came back with my ice pops, a woman without a name tag and wearing an apron came to my table (there were maybe four other tables occupied in the whole restaurant) and said something to the effect of, "Excuse me ... I am manager ... we like you like come here much ... we like you like our food ... we like you spend money to us ... but this is business to eat ... this is not library ... you must go because you here long time ... server want you to go so she can have other person at her table ..."

I was stunned and replied, "There is nobody here, the server has this whole section and there has been almost nobody here since I came in, she and the other servers are standing over there doing NOTHING, I send people here all the time, I come here to write my book and had you in the Acknowledgements, I tip well, and the money I save with the VA Free Drink I give back to the server. Just this past Saturday you told me to stay as long as I wanted because you weren't busy, and I've been giving you business a long time."

She said, "I sorry ... you must go," and I was still holding my ice pops in my hand.

I said, "No problem ... I'm putting these back (the fact she let me put them back is against Health Codes) and I'm leaving ... you get my business no more. I'm putting this one the internet and every Consumer Report I can find."

Golden Corral has the best home-made potatoes and roasted turkey, Geppetos cannot be beat for the meat in their spaghetti sauce, Hams on 321 has a Buffalo Burger to fight for, New York Hibachi has a superior selection with the best sushi in the area and a great grill, for Japanese cooking Kobe has a great sesame chicken and they fill your plate with that rice (last time I was there, I ordered a side of carrots, and the order filled half my plate), and for just a sandwich nothing beats Sub Station II ...

I am just one person, but Jin's Buffet has NO HONOR!!! You are RUDE, and should be SHUT DOWN!!!

I am DONE with you!!!

Got General Tso chicken last night and could not eat it, was grizzly and had bones in it. Usually has been pretty good but going down hill.
