“different experience”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

If you want to try something different in a restaurant, go to August 8. There food is excellent and the all you can eat gives you a chance to try a little bit of everything. It is not a buffet, you order off the menu and they bring you small portions, so you can try many different items. Most everything is delicious there. They also have many sushi items and those that don't like sushi, please don't get scared off. They have a huge assortment of other things besides sushi (I don't like Sushi, but really like August 8 restaurant).

“Dim Sum!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I couldn't be more in love with August 8 if they gave me food for free. It's so good and the variety is amazing. It's a little on the pricey side for all you can eat if you land in on Thursday-Sunday, but you get to pick and choose what you want and you can eat as much as your stretchy pants will hold. The california rolls are fantastic!
