Great value and great food

I took my family here for a birthday dinner. In every respect, the food was very good (not greasy, great portions, and well seasoned). Soup was hot and although some dishes could have been a bit hotter, everything was delicious. Service was efficient. The restaurant is clean. Parking was a bit crammed. But for AYCE at this price, we know we will be coming back and will recommend it to others.

Decent food, so-so service

I have been here twice for lunch. The sushi was average - you can't expect it to be fabulous at an all-you-can-eat place. When I visited on a week day the service was decent. On a week-end the service was terrbile. Some ordered items never came. We waited over 30 minutes for others. When I want to go to all-you-can-eat sushi again, I will try the others in town.

Horrible food, so-so service! There is so much rice, I cant even see the stuff inside the rolls! The fish is suuuuuuuper thin, its like you're getting full by eating just rice. What is the tempura batter made out of? Its hard, not crispy! They can't even cook soybeans properly! The served it to us when it was still hard inside! Not impressed.

First off, the sushi itself was quite good. The tempura was very light and crispy; seemed quite fresh. The eel sushi was surprisingly good, and the crispy rolls were probably a highlight. Okay, enough about the positives, its time for the shortcomings. We came at around 11 for the lunch buffet service, and it was pretty normal. A small flub where the server brought us a second set of amenities occurred, but that isn't really an issue. Where it kind of became amiss was when the dining room filled up with people. It got to around its maximum capacity, and the staff seemed to be pushed to their limit. We had orders stacked up for very long periods of time, some becoming disordered and amiss. It got to the point that we received our dessert before we got the rest of our entrees. Not to mention that we had no tea for about 15 minutes. We had to resort to drawing on the back of our order sheets. The ambiance was average. The fish tank probably needed cleaning. They need to repaint the building.

At an amazing $13pp for Japanese AYCE lunch, needless to say, these poor people made no money off of me :). I went hungy, and was rewarded with above-average nigiri, inventive and tasty maki, and a chicken egg don that took me back to the Dotomburi market in Osaka (I used to live in Japan, it was food heaven for me). I had read a lot of conflicting reviews on this restaurant before going, so I was a little skeptical, but I'm happy to report that my experience was very enjoyable, and the staff were very attentive and promt. We got there on a Saturday morning at about noon, and the place was already almost full, with mostly Asian people I might add, which is always a good sign to me. The staff found us a sweet little booth-for-two thingy, and had tea on the table post-haste. We ordered our first round, and received our first dish (veg udon) in about 6 min! There was a steady stream from then on. One thing about the nigiri sushi - its small. The good thing about it is that it IS perfectly proportioned... it has a small piece of fish and a small amt of rice. Most places would still have that small piece of fish, but with a huge clump of rice. So, I like this way better because they are small and tasty and I can order as many as I like. In the end, I ate a total of 27 separate pieces of sushi, plus all the other stuff I mentioned in the "What did you order" section. For $12.99 it is an amazing deal (Note dinner is $20.99 but its still an amazing deal cuz there's even more stuff on the menu then, like sashimi). Funny thing, after eating all that food and walking out feeling like a weather balloon, I somehow felt strangely healthy! I will definitely go back, I recommend you do the same!
