FOOD STOPS: Roboto San Japanese Grill Buffet

Buffet has been a foodie favorite for all time, and there is also a growing number of smokeless grill restaurants in the metro draws a lot of food trippers and also groups who wanted to have a good time with great food. And for the guilty glutton like me, these places of great buffet and grills is like nirvana for the foodie soul.


Roboto San Japanese Grill Buffet just opened this April and is indeed a different kind from regular buffet and grill restaurants.
