Sushi Boat Buffet Could Move Into Former Chevys

Recently we noticed crews checking out the former Chevys Fresh Mex restaurant and wondered who's moving in.

Community Development Director Terrence Grindall said this week that Yama Fuji Sushi Boat Buffet could be.

The sushi restaurant's application for a building permit to remodel the 6,670-square-foot building is being reviewed by staff, Grindall said.

Grindall did not know when the restaurant is expected to open.

, located at 5605 Mowry School Rd., closed .

A little close to the Nijo Castle Sushi Resteraunt. Perhaps the competition would be good?

Also weird because Fuji Sushi Buffet just opened on Walnut in Fremont.

Just what Newark does not need. This is typical Newark way of thinking. Another reason to contiue eating in other cities because Newark lacks and continues to lack good sit down restaurants......When will this stop.

Yet another Newark restaurant I'll never visit.

No loss as they only allow guide dogs in restaurants & raw fish would just make you poop all over the carpet !!

What kind of sit down restaurant would you all like to see in Newark?
Shimadog March 24, 2012 at 06:59 PM
Bob Evans or Golden Corral. Now that's American food.
Daniel March 24, 2012 at 09:57 PM
Golden Corral.
Sandy N March 24, 2012 at 10:18 PM
Golden Corral.

Golden Corral is CRAP, and you can just do Hometown Buffet. There is NO SUSHI BOAT BUFFET anywhere near this place, and Golden Corral is NOT a sit down place. jeez.
Ropol Bobinas May 30, 2012 at 08:17 PM
You are the lie.
Ropol Bobinas May 30, 2012 at 08:18 PM
You are all employees of that place, obviously.

Has this place opened yet? Cant find any contact information or reviews.

I just passed by today and the sign still says "coming soon." I have not yet heard of its opening, but will check on it!

This isn't a Newark decision it's the free market anyone can set up a restaurant anywhere they want good idea or bad.

Greek Cuisine With a significant influence from the Turkish and Italian cuisine, the Greek cuisine is focused around olive oil, vegetables and herbs specific to the Mediterranean region. I'm not talking gyros they are considered by Greeks to be junk food.
Yama Fuji Sushi Buffet July 27, 2012 at 12:57 AM
Yes, we are open. Soft opening 10% off. Variety of fresh sashimi and sushi rolls.
Nika Megino (Editor) July 27, 2012 at 01:02 AM
Awesome! Is there a grand opening celebration scheduled soon, and when did you all open up? Feel free to email me at nika.megino@patch.com or reply here.

I hope you serve cornbread, Jello, and fatty deep fried lard for the Golden Corral contingent.
William Kenney July 28, 2012 at 02:53 PM
LOL, Awesome!
William Kenney July 28, 2012 at 02:55 PM
How much does the buffet cost and what is served? I hope it's better than Golden Corral. Last time I ate there I had to go to the doctors.
