This visit to sushi bar was a shocker. 12:40. 5 sushi chefs and a terrible scarce display on conveyor belt. Restaurant not to busy but building up. Lack of variety not expected from numerous visits. I live far from this restaurant but travel to it for the experience of sushi atmosphere lacking this time. Very disappointing

for fast fish it is just ok and kind of reasonable in price, but you have to add laundry expenses due to poor extraction . the prawns were disappointing , king lip ok, fishcake acceptable . not a memorable meal

If you love sea food you'll enjoy this restaurant. You can sit at the sushi bar and eat whatever you want on the moving line. You can also sit a conventional table and order your meal. Or you can sit near the cooks and see them making your dish while you enjoy the appetizer. Pieces are good and on Tuesdays... More

We really enjoy going here and sitting at the sushi bar. Ordering fresh sashimi and salmon bamboo rolls are our favourite - can sit and watch them make them, knowing they as fresh as can be.

The menu choice is wide and the specials are great. Check out their facebook page for weekly specials. Try the two for one sushi and tepanyaki bar. The menu options for seafood are great and their family platter is good value. The service is good too.

Very good location and nice ambience. Food was average and not nothing to write home about. Maybe next time more lucky with food.

So sad, yet another restaurant that used to be good and has changed hands and is now a business that survives purely because of the volume of passing trade at the casino. We ate at the sushi bar, and wished we hadn't. It was a mess. When we arrived at 12pm for lunch, the prep area was littered with food... More

Our family loves sushi and CTFM, Suncoast has been one of our favourite eateries. However lately, service, quality of food, management has turned for the worst. On busy nights (Saturday) only one sushi chef on duty !! He literally had his hands full with orders piling in, no manager to be found, waitresses lying down on the couches, sushi on... More
