Nice variety of sushi and dim sum

We came in for the lunch buffet. It was my first time here and the staff explained the order tablet. We enjoyed a variety of dishes that arrived quickly to the table. I hope to go back again soon.

Good quality Sushi and Dim Sum especially for outside of Toronto. Quick service and reasonable pricing for an All you can eat menu.

Been to August 8 many times but this was the first time I used their newly-in-place menu ordering by iPad. It was efficient, visually appealing with a description of each dish along with photo. Food came quickly and there were no errors. August 8 has certainly distinguished itself above most other restaurants by using technology in its already hip atmosphere.... More

My friends and I love coming here. It's prompt service and good, fresh, food and sushi. We love coming for lunch because of the almost half the cost of dinner! I go on average once a month--I always know what I'm getting in terms of quality of food. Decent atmosphere. The building looks a bit scary from the outside but... More

Our third experience at August 8. The first thing we noted was no more pads and pencils to order, they have switched to iPads ( similar to the OTG resteraunts at Toronto Airport)... a bit confusing at first be we soon go the hang of it. Food service was a bit slow at first due to place being full, but... More

AYCE places are rarely satisfying; however, not so with August 8. For a set price, you can order as many small plates as you wish on the iPAD provided at each table. Food arrives very quickly, fresh and hot and very tasty. If you are new to Japanese cuisine, it is a perfect way to try many different dishes. Most... More

On our most recent visit, we discovered that the restaurant had moved to wireless ordering. The food once again was terrific, atmosphere good, service prompt but not overbearing and the experience very good. We will be back.

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
