I met some friends for dinner, and we all got the all you can eat deal. The food was ok, not fabulous, but alright. I thought it was a decent deal for what we paid. I didn't have any issues with any of the food not being fresh. The service was quite good, and the atmosphere is very nice. I... More

This place used to be not bad but it's terrible now. Portions are smaller but you are charged more.The presentation is awful and the food well, tasteless. The service was so slow and they forgot our table twice. On the way out our server asked if we wanted a table! We just served us! They are obviously trying to compete... More

Stopped in for dinner expecting the same good quality I've come to expect but was thoroughly disappointed. The menu has changed and the price changed to $27.99 which includes all you can eat sashmi. I don't eat sashmi because I like the rice but still had to pay the new price. The teriyaki steak is gone and replace with teriyaki... More

I ordered delivery from here and spoke to someone friendly on the phone. They made and delivered my food even though they were closing. The sushi I ordered was of average quality but I was very pleased with the service.

Went with a friend and we were a little confused by the tick the box menu system. Basically you can order as much and as many types of very good sushi etc. for a fixed price. Excellent food and a good opportunity to try lots of dishes.

had the all you can eat sushi special here. Wasn't expecting amazing sushi...most menu items were good...but not amazing. Two items to avoid however- Chicken karage is more like KFC's popcorn chicken and not really befitting what real Japanese karage tastes like. Also found the sunomono offer to be a little gross. Service however was excellent- both consistent and positive... More

We have been coming here for years. The food is good and the service is excellent. Great variety and value. The salmon sushi is very good. The only things missing from the all you can eat menu is shashimi.

Just because a restaurant has "sushi" in its name, doesn't mean I have to order it specifically. I've tried the mango, dynamite, and stampede rolls. They all tasted great and there wasn't a hint of any off-putting odors or tastes. I was relieved to not receive sushi that was refrigerated to the point where the rice gets dried out and... More

Visited this restaurant while staying at the Days Inn South for a Saddledome concert. The restaurant was quite large with cozy private booths. Tried a few sushi rolls and appys (shumai, yakitori, dynamite and unagi rolls) - the food arrived promptly and was delicious and fresh. Great value for good sushi. A worthwhile visit especially if you are in the... More

Was on business trip from Vancouver. I had learned that no place can really compare to the food in Vancouver. So I've kept my expectations lower. This place is horrible. It's all you can eat and before heading down there the reviews said it actually charged for wasted food. So I was very conscious in ordering. So we had some... More
