Momiji Japanese Buffet Restaurant

If you don’t want to bust your back account for a festive meal, I would recommend Momiji Japanese Buffet Restaurant for a more economical choice.  They have a good selection of items ranging from Barbecued seafood to steaming hot pots to fresh sashimi.  In addition to that, they are having an Oyster fest that ends on 31 December 2014.
