If you have been to different buffet restaurants, you might have some rants about how they operate like slow staff, takes too long to refill the counters and etc. But Sambo Kojin has corrected flaws of buffet restaurant design and improved operational systems for the benefit of their diners such as:

*More accessible, strategically located buffet islands or tables.

*Drinks and requested dishes are brought to the guest’s table.

*Consistently complete and regularly replenished buffet dishes.

*Prices do not vary and not dependent on presence or absence of dishes.

* Raw food are kept fresh and safe by modern chillers and positioned strategically for precise batch cooking or preparation. Chefs are provided with actual physical count so they can replenish dishes accordingly.

I can personally attest to the things mentioned above. It’s all true. I personally was able to experience and dine in at the Sambo Kojin SM Fairview, and I really had fun. Did not get any bad experiences and observations. The food selections were amazing and I’m very satisfied!. Unfortunately, I can’t eat and taste all the 200+ choices of food(too much for me) but I love everything that I ate during my visit. (not butt- kissing the brand, just saying the truth).

Will I go back again? YES! Definitely! 🙂
