We dine here often and we are very familiar with the menu! Good food, and service...nice to know what to expect! (do find Hamilton location is on the ball a little more, but usually less busy?)

We usually dine at the one in downtown Hamilton but we were in Burlington yesterday so decided to just eat at this location. The servers were miserable here compared to August 8 in Hamilton.

On both visits to August 8, service has been slow and placing an order was extremely difficult. While they offer a diverse menu, including Dim Sum, none was particularly satisfying. It was nearly 20 minutes before the server brought me my drink and my request for new napkin was ignored. While the decor is very pretty, August 8 is unusually... More

The food is pretty good and a good deal. But the service at this place is horrible. For all you can eat you order stuff and don't get it. And then you get stuff you don't order. Been there 4-5 times in the past year or so and there are better all you can eat places in Hamilton.

I liked the ice cream and dimsum but the sushi and sashimi was bad specially tuna. maybe I'm very sensitive with the smell and the texture of the fish, it was just so awful to me, I could not swallow it. but if you are not, my friends really liked it so u might like it too. Other than raw... More

Burlington you must be confused! How can you give this restaurant such a good review? The quality of food is one of the worst I have been to in terms of sushi restaurants. Was absolutely nothing special about the service and to top off the evening there was a black hair deep fried into my shrimp tempura. Ewwwwww never again.... More

This place did not stand out for me at all... yes, most sushi places are quite similar, but this one I did not love... The food was just average and the dim sum was certainly over steamed... perhaps not offer dim sum if It cannot be cooked properly?

I go to to August 8 at least twice a month but my last visit was disappointed. The dim sum were plastic chewy and tasteless. The hot and sour soup was good and the spicy tuna and salmon sushi were ok. I will have to go back and I hope it was just a bad day.

This is one restaurant that our family will always request. We all love the sushi and the selection and service is bar none. We don't go our for dinner often but when we do this is the restaurant that we all will want to go to. Excellent food, reasonable price; good service.
