This isn't the only all you can eat option for sushi, but it is the best at combining flavors. There is only one othe sushi joint, not all you can eat, that I would rate at the same level as Sushi Para. Sear ice is often slow and no sashimi is offered on the all you can eat menu, but... More

We have been a frequent customer of Sushi Para for many years. We have brought our friends and ordered platters for parties. My service tonight, was the worst I have ever received. The hostess is rude, the service terrible and the sushi not fresh. My son and I ordered the all you can eat and my 12 yr old daughter... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. We enjoy good sushi and were told this was the place to go. We were seated after about 10 minutes, but if we arrived any later, it would have been a longer wait. This is not a large restaurant. They have a all you can eat for $19.95 menu which... More

Para Sushi is a decent little sushi restaurant, with good-sized portions, friendly service, and reasonable prices. I went with a friend on a Friday night and the wait was not unreasonable. The sushi was very good - not the best I've ever had - but very good. Pieces were cut a little large on the spicy tuna and the spider... More

Ladies and gentlemen, I never thought this day would come, but this was the LAST TIME that I'm ever coming to Sushi Para. This is approximately the 13th year that my wife and I have been coming to Sushi Para. Has it always been perfect? No. We didn't pay much attention to the sometimes rude service, or the ridiculous wait... More

Great sushi, great price. The sushi is better than in some restaurants. To the reviewers that complain about having to pay for leftovers: are you kidding? You can take the leftovers home for the price that is less than in ANY restaurant or grocery store! Why should they through away food you ordered at their own expense? It is all... More

One of the only places in the burbs that offer AYCE sushi. $19.99 is tough to beat considering all the flashy joints charge that much for one roll. Come hungry and ready to eat. Great selection, vairety, and not just overloaded with rice!

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

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.

You can't beat the price, providing you eat it all since there is a charge for uneaten portions and likely there should be. Sushi is fresh and tasty. The environment isn't your standard Sushi vibe but it comfortable. The staff is attentive and quick.
