“Superb Sushi, Great Selection, Attractive Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Had lunch here yesterday while visiting Toronto. Located in the prestigious Kingsway section of Bloor Street in Toronto, there is ample parking in their lot. The restaurant is quite large and nicely decorated. Fantastic menu selection, complete with lunch specials that beat any of the prices of other restaurants I've been to. Friendly staff.

The sushi pizza is to die for - I haven't had something like this ever; it's a combination of raw and cooked fish atop a fried rice cake and topped with tempura flakes - really yummy. The volcano, quite attractive and flaming in the center has a similar raw fish/cooked fish setup with several rolls. I'd order both of these again on my next visit here.

They have a very nice and vast selection of special rolls as well as bento box selection. Can't wait to return.

Very good. Very creative and tasty dishes. A bit pricey but certainly well worth the money. Will definitely return.

“Don't bother with all you can eat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

They have all you can eat Japanese and Korean food for a set price, but they can't manage it properly, and the place was half empty when we were there for dinner! And they had a regular and premium menu if you pay a bit more, so we opted for the expensive menu. These items could only be ordered once. We were given a form to check off what we want to order. The problem is that we didn't get a copy of what we had ordered, and by the time we got another order sheet, we have forgotten what we had ordered the first time. And there was no way of checking if all the orders came.

A few of the food items came after a while, and only two of the premium items showed up. We waited for a long while and asked the waiter about the rest of our order and asked for another order sheet and put in some regular items in the mean time as we were so hungry after sitting there for at least another 15 min with no additional food. Guess what, they had some how missed the rest of the order!! He wasn't even apologetic about the missed order. Everything that we ordered in the second run came. We were full and missed the premium items.

The food was ok being an all you can eat restaurant, but their order system was a total disaster. The place wasn't full at all. How could they miss a bunch of orders? It was a frustrating experience and I would not go back again.

“Service is a joke!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Company Dinner
20 people
Private Room

What a joke. Right off the bat, service is a joke. Only half the room had arrived and the waiter wanted to start taking orders? Really? Not sure if he was inexperienced or just trying to rush us out of there. Should have got the waiter's name.

------------- FOOD -------------
When the whole room arrived, waiter started taking orders with his pen and clipboard. He drew a grid based on how everyone is seated. But when the food came, our dishes were all over the table. Some people who thought their food didn't arrive, had their food actually sitting on the other end of the table.

When servers were bringing food into the room, they were yelling out what they were. With a room of 20 people, they expect us to keep quiet and listen to the orders. TOOLS!

------------- DRINKS -------------
After the waiter takes all the food orders, he refused to take my drink order. Doesn't come back for almost half an hour until one of us left the room to go get them.

We ordered red wine and the waiter brought us a wine glass that had lipstick on the glass. DISGUSTING!!! They bring us another two glasses and they were dirty as hell.

Several girls ordered martini from their "Tuesday Special" menu. The waiter tells us "Sorry, no martini. The bartender is not here." Really? Don't put something on your "special" menu if we can't order it.

I will not go back with this kind of service. Terrible service.

“They can't decide what they are............”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This place is a joke. All you can eat - I think not. This place has limits on what you can order and they also have premium items that you can only have a very small portion of OR you can pay the difference. Too confusing and frustrating. Speaking of confusing, they play okay dinner music until they change it to current upbeat stuff which would be okay if I was at a bar. Oh wait....they think they are a bar too. They show UFC there and they also show other sporting events. I asked the manager/owner - big guy that was walking around trying to appear busy, and he was quite offended that I asked. Service was S-L-O-W and my husband and I were unimpressed. We live around the corner and will NEVER go back. We much prefer driving to Thornhill to Aji Sai for true all you can eat sushi. If I wanted a sports bar or a hip-hop bar, I'd find a place that doesn't serve sushi. If you think about coming here, think again and go somewhere else.
