Take the Whole Family to Kouyou Buffet for the Holidays

Kouyou Buffet is the perfect place to bring the family for a meal this holiday season. With more than 100 items on offer, there is certainly something for everyone. The food is fresh and plentiful with lots of choices. They specialize in Asian and American cuisine and offer freshly made sushi rolls and the freshest seafood in the area.

The 5800-square-foot buffet is the centerpiece of a revitalized Carolina Springs Plaza on Sample Road in Margate. It is the latest restaurant owned and managed by the You family and offers a warm, comfortable dining experience.

The space is open, modern, and welcoming, and unlike some Asian restaurants, the decoration is not overstated. The various food options stretch along the side of one entire wall of the restaurant and include tons of sushi options, a salad bar, a hibachi grill, traditional hot dishes, and a dessert buffet. You will feel right at home as soon as you are greeted by one of the friendly staff.

The Food

The challenge with any buffet restaurant is balancing choice with quality. Kouyou tackles this challenge by having specialists in each area. The sushi bar is managed by a master sushi chef, while the hibachi is attended by an executive chef ready to cook to order. We found all of the items fresh and well-stocked. 


If you enjoy sushi and have a big appetite, this may be the best restaurant in Broward County! They offer a variety of rolls, nigiri, and sashimi options. The sushi rolls look like works of art. Beautiful, brightly colored, and created with obvious care. This is a long way from the typical spicy tuna roll.

Fish lovers will love the Seared Tuna Tataki, Magic Moon Roll, and Tuna Lover’s Roll. The salmon is fresh-tasting and sweet. They also offer some less-common buffet options like white tuna and yellowtail. 

Low-card dieters will be excited to know that Kouyou offers several rice-free sushi rolls as well. Sushi lovers could enjoy an excellent, satisfying meal without ever leaving the sushi area. But, there is much more.

In the evenings, the cold bar includes fancier offerings like snow crab legs, oysters, peel and eat shrimp, and even more sushi options.


The Hibachi includes steak, chicken & shrimp, along with a variety of traditional vegetables and tofu. They even offer some unusual items like corn on the cob. The master chefs prepare each dish to order as you wait.

The hot food selections are what you would expect from Chinese and Thai cuisine. They include all of our favorites like Szechuan beef, Kung Pao chicken, and Thai coconut shrimp. The dumplings are fresh, which is a tricky thing at a buffet! The salad bar offers a vast choice of vegetables, fruits, and dressings. They even have pizza and fries for families with picky kids.

A Fantastic Meal

You will never leave hungry from the Kouyou Buffet. The food is plentiful and tasty and there are endless options to choose from. It is a great place for a business lunch or dinner with the family. We can’t wait to go back
