Solid Sushi Experience

This was one of our many experiences at August 8 and it was pretty solid as per usual. The service was fantastic to start and as it got busier it took a bit more time to get attention however it was all good. The food options are great and they have many choices for you - you can order your... read more

We happened to go on the holiday Monday - was some sticker shock as the price had gone up since our last visit and a premium due to the holiday - ?

I love August 8, have been to their other branches in Hamilton but have never experienced bad service. Sure there are days when the restaurant is crazy busy and things take time to arrive, but common I am a just person. At the Burlington location, it doesn't matter if it is busy or not, be prepared to be treated with... More

The ingredients and preparation have gone steadily downhill since it opened. Even the sushi rice was not made properly. Never again.

I visit this location when first open in Burlington, On. The food was good and service as well It seems that popularity and fame not only kills a performer but also a restaurant Today food is average, I can't guarantee but it seems they may used MSG, since both me and my friend felt uncomfortable after finish eating As you...

A few friends and myself made a lunch reservation at August 8 to celebrate a fellow co-workers upcoming wedding. I have been here several times and have never had any issues with food or service, this visit however was awful. Our server was so inattentive that he generally just seemed to ignore us altogether. No offer for refills on any... More

My dear friend invited me for a dinner one Thursday. Since I have hear many good things about this restaurant we decided to give a try. Extremely busy place , it was around 7 pm. We had to wait for a table for over 30 min! Food was good! I don't think I will be back tho!

As being Japanese, I would say this is not authentic Japanese foods but I like it. I enjoy their sushi. I do not really big fan of their Chinese foods though. Their cooking skill of tempra is pretty good and I always order shrimp tempra. I am going there again pretty soon!

The best meal yet at this restaurant. Went with some friends. Table was ready and settled in to have some very good sushi. Boys had hot sake and Sapporo for drinks. Ordered maki rolls, dim sum then some teppanyaki, then another couple rounds of sushi and more maki rolls. The deep fried house roll is great. I have given this... More

Occasionally you have to wait at this popular all you can eat place. Once you're in the service is quick. Food is fresh and delicious. Great hot and sour and miso soups. The shrimp dumplings are a must.
