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

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
