The sixth and newest branch of Sambo Kojin opened a few months ago, while they continue to offer guests with a feast of Korean and Japanese favorites at SM Fairview! Sambo Kojin means 'god in the kitchen' and is a perfect name to be given to a restaurant that serves nothing but top grade yakiniku selections, sushi, sashimi, as well as other oriental and international favorites. The SM Fairview Branch also has bright and sharp interiors with areas fit for private functions and celebrations.
For many Filipinos, a trip to their favorite buffet restaurant is a perfect way to celebrate momentous occasions: from birthdays to christenings, receptions and even team dinners, Sambo Kojin is one of those places where you can enjoy your favorite dishes, and I mean ALL your favorite dishes (including drinks and desserts too!)

Other improvements made inside Sambo Kojin are also very evident, including having more accessible and strategically operating buffet islands, modernized exhaust systems for proper ventilation inside the restaurant, super friendly servers who can get you drinks and dishes, and spot check of dishes to make sure that there is proper replenishment.
I am very satisfied to see that they have also improved on handling raw food which are placed in modern chillers and made sure that what is displayed is fresh, clean and still of great quality and taste.
Nines' Buffet Tip: My personal requests to servers whenever I eat at Sambo Kojin: Kamameshi Rice, Bibimbap, Sukiyaki and Garlic Shrimp with Sambo Kojin Sauce!
Aside from Japanese and Korean favorites, they now have steaks, roasted pork/poultry and some Filipino dishes.
