All you can eat

All you can eat. Expected it to be all rice and no fish. But the pieces of fish on the sushi rice were really a decent size. Would definitely return.

Really low grade sushi, cheap cuts of fish that have been sitting around for a long period of time in a chiller covered with plastic wrap. The fish was so dry, I could feel it pulling the moisture out of my mouth with the first bite. I don't think I even saw a knife behind the counter while sitting at... More

I really wanted this to be an amazing sushi restaurant. I'd heard good things about it from our shuttle driver, who said that customers often said it was really good. I suspect it was my own selection that was not as good as other dishes. I chose #7 on the menu based on the waitresses recommendation because it came with... More

Staff is very nice, chefs are hard at work, we enjoy sitting at the sushi bar! Food is great! Sushi was fresh and very good! If you ask for low sodium soy they offer it! For the low price and great sushi, you can't beat it! Mountain roll rocks!

A few things: Too much rice. Also, they charge you $1 for each leftover piece of sushi. While arguing, the lady who works there said that the charge for leftovers is their policy and pointed me to a statement somewhere on the top of the menu that stated the following: "All you can eat, but if you have leftovers, you...

I stopped in to PARA Sushi for a quick lunch. I was happy to find that they offered and all you can eat deal for $15. Very good and fresh sushi with a large selection.

Not the best Sushi, but it will do if you are in the area. I had 2 rolls and they were pretty average. I've had much better and I've had some worse. The people who run it are very kind and polite.

It was a Tuesday and it was very busy. We were taken care of. The food was great. I like the real crab that they use, not the fake stuff.
