99 ways to eat seaweed and rice

WOW a place that doesnt charge for tea... this is one of the last sushi places in waterloo that still has complementary tea. The sushi is average, not too much rice (as filler), but the seaweed is sometimes not fresh/crispy. They are relatively fast at bringing out the food and the arrangement and... read more

Went here the other day just after the lunch hour for all you can eat. It was really great at first, loved the food,it came out quick and piping hot! About half way through our experience it seemed like a lot of staff went home and things slowed down so it took a while for things to come. The selection... More

Very good sushi. As already mentioned, the Dynamite roll IS delicious. The interior of the restaurant is nice, and lends itself to large groups of people. The food was good, and I will return.

Very good sushi in Waterloo. Dynamite roll is delicious. I like the interior of the restaurant as well. Reliably tasty, will keep returning.

The menu is ok, service is good and the food is tasty. Better than average for sure but not yet 'very good'. Would go again.

If you just want some standard AYCE sushi and not caring about service then do try this place. Otherwise save your money and go elsewhere. Took a friend here for his birthday with 1.5 hrs before posted close and they rushed us through and announced last order with still an hour to close (after only 20-30mins of being seated). We...

The nigiris were warm = they don't know how to make the sushi properly and are looking for a food poisoning incident or they made the sushi while the rice was still hot... which is also the reason the rice was mush. Poorly made laughable sushi rolls. No su- in the sushi. Little to no fish variety and no sashimi... More

My boyfriend and I always go to Sushi 99 because the prices are fair and the sushi is fresh. They have a lot of selection and the service is usually quick. The servers aren't particularly chatty or friendly but they get the job done. The place does get busy so the manager is always around to help if he see's... More

We went here for a late Father's Day dinner and we all enjoyed the food. It's nothing spectacular but it's not horrible either; just mediocre Japanese all-you-can-eat sushi. The food comes fast after you order it and it's pretty fresh. The decor is modern and there's tons of sitting space. My parents loved the cooked food items (i.e. Teppanyaki, tempura,... More

I attended Sushi 99 on a recommendation from a colleague while visiting the area for a volleyball tournament. Beware, the adult rate starts at age 12 and if your child only eats cucumber rolls and edamame (not good here) you are seriously overpaying for their meal. In addition, the service was inconsistent, things were not delivered and the hand rolls... More
