I went there with friends for dinner last Saturday, service and food was excellent but because the food was delicious, it was gone when it came out, perhaps keep the food trays always full at all time then more of us can share the happiness : ) overall it was a pleasant evening dining, will surely return.

The workers actually seemed genuinely friendly and happy; persistently checking up on us and making great efforts to ensure that the foods we desired were present.

The food was also very tasty and was considerably great ranged. For a buffet, it was also relatively cheap.

Nothing more can be said, you guys are going to have to try it for yourselves!!

Good food great service. Went here after booking on my birthday – pleasantly surprised as they gave a free bottle of wine as it was the date of my birthday and there were more than 4 ppl.One of my friend took their card as well so guess he liked it a lot as well. Will be happy to come again :)

Just be careful on parking as the Chinese restaurant next door has their car park look like a public car park, has a tiny, non-noticable sign in Chinese saying they’ll tow the car (with all haste to do so – two ppl had their car towed within an hour)

It was our first time for my sister and I to dine in a Japanese restaurant. The design was very welcoming and the service was extremely friendly. We were both nervous about what food we will be ordering tonight, especially the prices that will be in the Menu (we haven’t seen the Menu). However, when we walked in, the waitress greeted us and introduced their combo of korean and Japanese baffet! It was DELICIOUS!

Just had an amazing dinner at tombo and was very impressed with not only the variety of cold and hot dishes, soups and sides (and lots of sushi), but the lovely hostess was very friendly and the servers were informative about any dishes we had questions about. She brought us out a large helping of korean bbq beef ribs, hot off the grill, my favorite, without us needing to ask. Everything was fresh right down the crispy tempura veggies and fresh spring rolls. The presentation was lovely and clean, no metal serving platters with heat lamps here. I’m incredibly full and very happy we took the time to drive out to newmarket on this rainy weekend, I’d love to go there again for a special occasion or another rainy evening :)

We went there for $29 dinner buffet. I was already impressed by the waitress(maybe she was the manager) before I even had the food. You know finding a car park in Newmarket is hard, but actually the waitress helped us to find a car park! I couldn’t believe it! (unless she was the manager, ok not even a manager would do that to be honest) Hey, thank you if you read this :)

Now for the food, yep, the food was excellent too! Great combination of Japanese and Korean food so you have more variety to choose. My friend especially liked Korean food section. He loved Bossam with cucumber Kim-chi and BBQ~ I liked the sushi selection and spicy squid salad in Korean food section. Love it! I haven’t tried lunch ‘donburi’, will def try~

Overall, attentive and well mannered staffs and good food!

I work right upstairs, so Tombo is very convenient. The donburi is great! There’s lots of meat selections to choose from and a great selection of veggies. Nice to have an inexpensive, healthy lunch option when there’s so many other fattening ones around.

Also, the service is fantastic! One of the best places for service that I’ve been. The waitress is attentive without hanging all over you and she’s always bright, cheerful and has a smile. Well done guys! Now I have to try the dinner!

Had an absolutely delicious lunch here today. $11.50 for what they called ‘donburi’. There was easy guidance on how to assemble my lunch: I got to choose two mains (I chose fish katsu and teriyaki tofu), and then I had the freedom to select as many salad ingredients as I wanted from the buffet-style bowls, then sauces.

The waitress was very helpful, and recommended the teriyaki sauce and wasabi sauce combination (the wasabi sauce was really mild and delicious with loads of teriyaki sauce).

Tofu was perfectly cooked, fish was very nicely cooked.

It was pretty awesome to eat such healthy and delicious food for lunch – a huge bowl of fresh veges – easily counted as 3 out of my “5+ veges a day”, and with the sauces it was fabulous.

Will definitely come again next time I’m passing through Newmarket.
