Decent Service, Alright Food,

On a weekday, three of us came here, two for all-you-can-eat dinner, one of us ordered A la carte. Overall, the service was good: we were seated, given waters, teas, the iPad service is nifty, and our orders came pretty quickly and were completely filled. The trick is to be reasonable.

I have never enjoyed a moment in this place. The waitress once started an argument with me about something I ordered saying I can't have it and threw me a bowl of ice cream that I didn't want instead, like chucked it at me? We later said we would pay with debit not knowing that their too cheap to pay... More

Gave a full table to people who arrived with us but in the door first ahead of us in line. What's the point of a reservations you might ask. " We are very busy." Yes, ergo... More

I had heard that this place had great AYCE sushi and we went for dinner. The restaurant was packed for a Saturday night. You place your order on an ipad which is becoming the norm. Dinner is 25.99pp on a Saturday night and before we went I looked at the AYCE menu online. I was disappointed at the dinner selection.... More

I have been here many times over the years and it's always been busy because the sushi was good. But now, the service is poor. And we were left waiting....we arrived at 7:40 and after being seated, we waited for our waitress for TWENTY minutes to come by offer us water. Seriously?!? And then she left. The whole iPad order...

Sapporo offers the most for the same cost. $15.49 for all you can eat lunch and that includes salmon rose sushi. They have beef short ribs, steak, pad thai, and many more items on the their lunch menu. The most extensive list by far for an all you can eat sushi restaurant. All of the food is fresh and delicious.... More

Very fresh sushi delivered to your door!! Not crazy about the hot food (some of the szechuan dishes are fairly greasy) but the sushi can't be beat thus far. Surprising find in Hamilton.

The staff is very gracious and the food outstanding. Haven't ever had anything I didn't like. What is nice, is that the food is made to order. Presentation is beautiful. Variety is great too.

We saw reviews here on this restaurant and they didn't disappoint! The food was really good and as another said the service was fantastic! Everytime a dish was emptied someone was there to pick it up. As well as topping up drinks. I would have given it a 5 star, but even though the AC was on it was too... More
