“Popular sushi buffet but beware they only accept paper coupons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Travelling through Denver we were looking for a sushi buffet in the area and decided to check out Sushi Katsu due to all the good reviews and reasonable price at $23.95 for dinner. The place was completely full with several people waiting to be seated, but it only took 15 or so minutes to get the table. The servers/hosts actually did a great job seating everyone that came as quickly as they could despite being very busy - there were six sushi cooks at the sushi bar! Sushi Katsu works exactly like any other sushi buffet, you mark your selections on their 'buffet' menu and if something is not on that menu but is on the regular menu, you can still write it down and get it except 3 special rolls (Denver, Spider, and BSC?). Except rolls you can also get a variety of appetizers, salads, soups, and standard entrees, like chicken fried rice. If you do not finish the food you order , you get charged for leftovers. It took sometime to get our order but everything tasted good and seemed fresh, though it was not the best sushi I've ever had but then you cannot expect to get anything too exquisite at the buffet. The only thing that was surprising is that they were unwilling to accept an email coupon that they offer on their website (15%) and required a printed copy. Although it is understandable concern that customers would use a coupon multiple times, you would think it is possible to come up with a better and more environmentally friendly mechanism to track it rather than require paper waste.

“GREAT All You Can Eat Sushi - REALLY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I've eaten at a few 'all you can eat sushi' places and have been seriously underwhelmed with the selection and value. This place blew me away. You can get 99% of their menu selections as part of all you can eat, even their specialty rolls. Handrolls are an extra $.50 each and Spider Rolls aren't included but all of their other specialty rolls, tempura rolls, etc. are included. Stick with the delicious selection of rolls and skip the nigiri and you'll have a great time. Visit for happy hour and get 2 for 1 sake and beers to really round out your trip. This joint is in a strip mall in what used to be a mexican restaurant (I think) so the decor is pretty lame but the food and the great wait staff make up for it. You will get such a great value, it's crazy.

“Be prepared to be surprised in a good way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

So this little unassuming restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside. It's in a little strip mall on Havana in Aurora, and you'd never know how amazing it is until you go inside. Be prepared to go early or have a long wait because by 6 p.m. this place is jammed. And there's a good reason - because you've never had sushi this good, this fresh and all you can eat for $24. And unlike other all you can eat where the sushi sits out on a buffet table, this is fresh, made to order and absolutely delicious. My personal favorites - Volcano roll, Hawaiian roll, the best spicy tuna ever, and I've only visited twice. So more visits to come to try more interesting sounding rolls. The whole menu is included in the all you can eat price and for folks who don't do the raw fish thing, there are other choices - teryaki, udon noodles, veggie and shrimp tempura, and much more. Hard to decide sometimes because even though I'm a sushi fan, the other stuff is really good too. Be prepared for service to be hit or miss. The staff is very nice but sometimes you'll order rolls and appetizers and the rolls will come out first and then the apps will appear. But very helpful, friendly and nice folks on wait staff. Can't wait to go back.

“Great way to sample sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Great way to try lots of different kinds of sushi! My husband does not eat shellfish so it is very difficult to eat sushi but he was able to order the all you can eat because there are a lot of non-seafood options such as teriyaki chicken and beef and tempura vegetables. The quality is a 4...very good! The quantity is as much as you want...
