Tokyo House: Not your pappy's buffet

While the world is full of sub-standard all-you-can-scarf joints — many of which have shambled on, zombielike, long beyond their rightful expiration date — this year's Readers Choice winner for Best Buffet, West Little Rock's Tokyo House, has gone a long way toward restoring our faith in buffet dining. For one thing, it's food you might actually want to eat an infinite amount of: mostly Japanese cuisine, including gyoza dumplings, a sushi bar, fried rice and noodles, hibachi chicken and steak, as well as oddball stuff like squid and seaweed, and green tea ice cream for dessert. As an added bonus, it's all presented beautifully on platters, with nary a steam-tray in sight. That alone is enough to break the psychic connection between Tokyo House and the horror show of bad Asian buffets that came before.
