Todai in Fair Oaks- Any thoughts?

epsato | Dec 29, 2011 08:47 AM

As a caveat to my post, I'm about as anti-buffet as a guy can get. To me, these eateries are hotbeds of bacteria and represent the absolute worst of suburban Americana's mall parking lot restaurant culture. To me, the words "chocolate fountain" are all I need to write off a place.

So of course, in light of this, my extended family is hosting another annual get together, and again it's at a buffet restaurant. Last year's Afghani buffet was disastrously disgusting dining experience at best, so I'm now wondering if an outing to Todai in Fair Oaks is going to be equally bad?

The usual logic (from what I've read anyway) is that fish is to be avoided on Sundays and Mondays, Sunday brunch is a dumping ground, with the executive chef at home AND that buffets are to be avoided at all costs.

So what are we doing? Going to a sushi buffet on a Sunday. Am I being paranoid or does this sound like the sort of place to avoid like the plague?

Thoughts and reflections on Todai would be much appreciated. Perhaps I'm misjudging a book by its cover? Or this this place the stinkbomb I'm envisioning it to be?
