Always busy when ever you go, service sometimes slow but doesn't lessen the dining experience, could do with a refurbishment

Nice, welcoming service. Speedy delivery of the best sushi Barrie has to offer. Amazing value for all you can eat, and a great selection. The Dunlop Roll is our favorite, and the calamari is highly recommended. Visiting tomorrow as well!
