Great service BYOB always a plus. The all you can eat sushi normally would scare me however it’s all made to order and all the fish seamed fresh. A great deal for anyone wanting good sushi

The all you can eat is awesome if you are super hungry! It’s three rounds of ordering, with soda and tea included. I like the miso, ginger chicken, gyoza, salads. The rolls are all good sized. Love the super white tuna nigiri! Nice neighborhood spot.

Everything was good, no reasons to complain. The only two things that were not reaally good was the tea (it was cold) and the Gyoza (also cold). The rest was good.

This is a solid sushi place, especially if you are looking for an all you can eat option. This is the best quality sushi I have found for AYCE sushi. Ordering can be a little confusing the first time you visit since the whole table...has to put there order on one slip of paper. It’s fine once you get the hang of it, but smaller groups are easier to manage for this style of ordering. They have a lot of good options as well as some fun appetizers. Get a tuna bite to start your meal!More

Super fresh, high quality, reasonably priced sushi. Highly recommend. Next time I will try all you can eat.

My wife and I had the AYCE menu for $22 each. For apps we had the edamame, spring rolls, crab rangun, and the dumplings. All of the appetizers were small portions like tapas style and they were delicious. We had the ebi and tuna nigiri,...both excellent. And we had the shrimp tempura, Miami, volcano, and the crunchy spicy tuna. We stayed for almost and hour because we were enjoying the chill atmosphere and the awesome food. I highly recommend for a date night with the wife or a first date.More

My family of five went to Wasabi Cafe for my daughters birthday. Food was good but the service was awful. There is a mandatory 18% tip for groups over five, so with our group apparently there was no motivation to provide good service after the...food was served. I got thin noodles instead of the thick noodles ordered. They forgot the ice cream ordered for the birthday. No one would clear the dirty plates or refill water so we could talk. And boy! Was it LOUD. Food was good but I will not be going back!More

What a pleasant surprise this random pick a friend of mine had. We walked in, a group of six, on a Thursday evening and were immediately seated. To make things easy, we all chose the 'all you can eat' sushi option - which, usually, I'm...not a fan of - but this place gets it right. Included in the all you can eat are not only small maki rolls, but the large, specialty rolls as well. Plus appetizers. Plus non-alcoholic beverages. Plus nigiri. They do have rules in place, as to how much you can order all at once - but those rules are more likely protecting you as your eyes will surely be bigger than your stomach. You will be charged should you not finish what you order - so be careful! Everything we ordered was delicious. From ginger chicken to seaweed salad to the many rolls we ordered - it was all fresh, it all came out fast, and it was all included with the special! Our largest order was even brought over on an adorable wooden boat. An extra nice feature are the bells. Each table has a black circle - if pressed it rings a bell (like a door-bell), which alerts the wait staff your table needs something. (This kind of reminded me of a call button on a flight!). So at no point did we go long without something we wanted or needed. Date wise, I'd say this is a great place for a date. The maki bits aren't oversized (the nigiri was rather large, but no jaw unhinging needed to eat), the ambiance is nice - not overly romantic, but nice, and the staff and chefs are amazing. It might be a bit much for a first date if you plan on going for the all you can eat - you'll definitely have trouble walking out of there after the guaranteed-overeating!More
