Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Japanese cuisine lovers have a new option in Vestal.

The Hibachi Sushi and Supreme Buffet in the Town Square Mall is now open.

The restaurant is the former location of the Old Country Buffet, and owners say they provide an "all-in-one affordable hibachi buffet."

"We believe service represents more than the quality of food itself," said Tom Lin, owner of the buffet, through a translator.

He said he's looking forward to bringing authentic Japanese cuisine to the Vestal area.

Lin said their goal is to "provide better service for the community and to be a part of the community."

The restaurant claims to have one of the only master sushi chefs in the area.

As a part of their grand opening, the restaurant presented the Vestal Police Department with a $1,000 check.

The department said they will put the money toward a scholarship.
