Great Japanese Buffet.
Todai is a very nice Japanese buffet. Although it can't be considered a high-end Japanese restaurant, it does have a very good selection and the food is reasonable well prepared. The dinner is slightly more expensive than lunch, but dollor for dollar it's worth it. In terms of seating and service, Todai is very efficient. The buffet cost around 20 dollars.
