“Food is ok, interior could use some finishing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

We had dinner here with two, the food is ok, good choice of different sushi, sashimi, tempura and the like. Service is quick and attentative. Price is ok for the quality of this AYCE restaurant.

The availability of parkingspace is good, right around the corner there is plenty of space, so the restaurant is easy to reach. If you enter the restaurant it all looks pretty smooth, but we were sat down in a corner where you could see that the interior could use some finishing still. The ceiling was not finished, behind the bench I sat on it was open and not finished, somebody also threw in his leftovers from the meal, that were completely dry, there were some tissues behind it as well, all a little bit dirty.

Overall it was nice, although we were not overly impressed, it all needs more attention to the details to rate for very good. However you cannot go wrong here, it probably is one of the better sushi restaurants in St. Catharines.

“Fav Sushi place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

I love this place, great, fast service with wonderful food. It can get very busy at certain times, but I've only had to wait a max of 10 mins, once in service is very quick. Lunch ~ all you can eat sushi with a beverage for 12.99! Great deal:)
