Japan: Nanda Crab buffet in Sapporo THE BEST!!!!

  1. freshfish at Nanda - The Best of Sapporo Japan

    Nanda has one of the best seafood buffets in Sapporo with lot's of fresh crab and freshfish. The cost is 3480 yen per person for 90 minutes.

In Sapporo we were reccommended this restaurant: NANDA Crab Buffet
 Looking for it was a nightmare!!!
 It was wet and cold and we did not know where to go...
 we passed many shops
 and crossed many streets
 we asked many people but none of them had heard of Nanda

 We walked round in circles

and came back to the same place!
 This Japanese girl is so helpful although she does not know what Nanda is
 Actually, it was not her fault, the landmark Novotel Hotel had changed its name to Renaissance and we were told it was next to Lawson, but Lawson is EVERYWHERE, on all street corners!!!
 we really do not know where else to go!!
 We are lost again!

 So glad to find Lawson, but look round the corner, there is another Lawson
 THEN, Vincent saw the small sign (in Mandarin!) Nanda!
(out of sheer desperation, he saw it!)
