NIU Menu Stations
The Japanese Station
This station is a good place to start your journey in NIU. The NIU Japanese Station offers the best sushi and sashimi menu. You may enjoy as much tuna and salmon sashimi and sushi as you like. They also have barbecue rolls and dynamite rolls plus California maki and many more. They also have tempura in this station and their tempura never runs out. One of my favorite stations but ill be honest I don’t like raw foods so California maki and tempura are my favorites. Overall a great station to start with delicious and mouthwatering dishes to offer.
Those who love shawarma like me will enjoy their selves at their shawarma station where you can actually eat as much shawarma as you please. In this station they have an automatic chopping machine to help you make your own shawarma but if you don’t know how you can always ask for assistance from the servers standing by to help. That’s actually what I noticed you can ask their servers to deliver the food to your table which you can’t do in other buffet restaurants and that’s a real luxury.
This is your station for your Italian cravings. In this NIU menu station, they have varieties of pizza and pasta to fulfill your Italian needs.
