Awesome AYCE!

My wife and I frequent Sapporo quite often for lunch. It is our favorite lunch AYCE place as it serves Salmon Rose. The food quality is always good and the staff are friendly and always happy to help or explain any dish. I would recommend this for lunch only as it is quite expensive at $25 a... read more

After visiting Spring Sushi multiple times, I figured it was time to give Sapporo a shot after hearing a few relatively positive reviews from my colleagues. The menu was on a tablet, much like many of the other sushi places around so it was a familiar interface. Service was prompt, and dishes were cleared fairly quickly. We placed our initial... More

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. Order enough for the people there, but not too... More

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.
