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.

Enjoyed all-you-can-eat lunch menu. The restaurant has a nice vibe to it - bright and a good place to meet friends. Food is quite good, and arrives quickly. We had the ipad order system which is a nice touch. Service is lacking. Drinks were not refilled, nor were we asked if we wanted other drinks. Dirty dishes were left on... More

We have been going to this restaurant for 2 years now... and generally been good to very good but the last 2 visits have been substandard compared to when it first opened. The seats were soiled with soya sauce which we both almost sat in...the tables we wiped but not clean.... the wine came in a glass that smelled.... It... More

My wife and I eat at August 8 from time to time. They have the hands-down best sushi in Burlington (from the places we have tried). Everything is fresh and delicious and the menu is has a wide variety of items. The parking lot is absolutely horrible. Too small, too narrow - there is never enough parking. It's a complete... More

A couple of friends referred me and I am a big fan of August 8. I have been to both Oakville and Burlington and enjoy their food very much. I like the one price (higher on weekends) and I have always found the service to be good. I have returned several times and would recommend it to others.

The food is very good but the service has been terrible. We have been twice and will not go back again. A few of our orders were lost and they rarely came to fill up our water. It took so long to get our receipt and to pay. The tea also costs extra...unlike the August 8 in Hamilton. Will only... More

Went a couple of times late August, the Brant St. location is very busy so 2nd time I went to Oakville. Service both times was quick & efficient. The food is a little inconsistent, sashimi was very good but sushi and dim sum was just average. If you have a craving and this is close, it will fit the bill... More

This is part of a small chain in southern Ontario. Food is not bad at all. Dim Sum is of decent quality, and has all the favourites. Sushi is fine. We are dim sum lovers in particular, so this is a real bargain. And it's quick. We came and were gone in exactly one hour. And were very full. Service... More
