There is Hope for All You Can Eat Sushi

August 8 was recommended to me by a friend so drove down to Burlington to try it out. For once the serving staff was attentive and pleasant. Most of my AYCES experience are opposite to this. The staff made an effort to be helpful though there was a bit of "tension" when one of the staff... read more

This is one of our favorite places for lunch. Great food, best service of any sushi place we have ever been. I would have to say we would go more often but the thought of dealing with their too small parking lot.

As mentioned in a previous review, the Ipad menu and order placement concept is certainly innovative. Delivery of our order was surprisingly faster than the previous way. Food was good, possibly prepared in advance? More expensive than what I remember. Parking is quite limited

The dim sum is definitely better than the sushi. The variety of fish and sushi is sad and pathetic typical of most sushi places in Canada outside of the major cities. Still enjoy the sticky rice and the desserts. The combo sushi could do without the icky sticky sweet yucky sauce. (What do you think the sho-yu is for?) Hides... More

Always fresh and well made, a lot of variety! Although it is pricey, it is worth it. I love the hot and sour soup and pretty much everything else on the menu. It can get busy, and staff is good but as always with all-you-can-eat sushi, mistakes can happen. Ipads for ordering are a great addition. Great date spot!

August 8 has that creative approach to ordering your food whereby you don't actually speak to your server that much until the food arrives. If you enjoy the thought of clicking a touch screen while you're munching (it's actually quite fun), then drop in and enjoy a wide variety of good Asian inspired food.

My first time at this little sushi place with all you can eat option. Everything was great, smooth ordering with tablet; although we got someone else's order a few times. Only caveat is parking, there's not enough for all patrons. Car pool is key!

All you can eat Sushi and Dim sum. Ordering for a tablet allows for less mistakes and let's you visualize what you have ordered as well as how much. Menu has not changed for a long time and getting tiresome. Parking can be problematic on busy weekends. Overall the food and experience is average. Service can be inconsistent at times... More

I've been here a few times in the last couple months because it's so good! You order off a tablet a little at a time so you can enjoy your meal at your own pace. They tend to get super busy so going earlier is best.

Very good Japanese food, fast service, but rather messy - needs higher standards of ongoingcleanliness - too much debris around. Tried once to order in and it was impossible to gt through or get service. I like the ordering method
