“Precious water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

A crowded popular " all you can eat" restaurant. The quality of the dishes is beyond question. The portions are generous, service quick and efficient due to ordering by tablet. It is, in my opionion, at most a once every three months experience, but th kids love it. House wines are nice, but the staff have been instructed not ro serve tap water. I can imagine that providing free water would lead, in Holland, to " all you can drink" so why not ask a modest amount for a carafe of water instead of charging 6 .50 for a bottle of water from Bunnik insteD of Amersfoort?

“Did not expect such quality in an 'all you can eat sushi'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We where pointed to this restaurant by the hotel receptionist, normally we prefer to eat sushi in a real sushi restaurant, but this is an all you can eat restaurant. We had some minor experiences in similar all you can eat so we where a bit hesitant. Well, no reason for that, the food was good and sometimes even a bit better, the sushi's itself looked a bit smaller then they should be, but then again it is all you can eat so ou order again. Ordering goes through a mini-tablet, that is remarkably accurate. Soon after oredering the food arrives. The service is a bit unpersonal, the waitresses have a big round to do, but then the girl serving the drinks had plenty of time for a friendly chat. In the end, no complaints whatsoever. Would I go back, yes no doubt.

“Gimmick”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

In This restaurant the customer uses ipads to order his sushi. You can order as much as you want. If you are not carefull your table will soon be overflowing with little dishes with sushi. The drinks have to be ordered with a waiter and this took forever with us. The waiters are all willing but not always well trained. The manager did his best to salvage the situation. The food is not good. The noodles were so overdone that they were almost a paste, the rice was tasteless as was much of the fish.
Fun for a night out because you can continue to order as much as you want but not recommended for sushi-lovers.

“Lovely looking restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

One of the nicest looking restaurants that I've been to in Amersfoort. Its quite a large restaurant and can be very busy without being crowded.The food itself is no better or worse than some of the other sushi places in Amersfoort

Food is order via iPad type device and the dishes are then delivered to your table.
