Not many all you can eat Japanese places have sashimi, cones and soft drinks included. This one does. Although the decor isn't great, the food is above average. We regularly order 5 fresh raw oysters for $4 extra.

If you don't like AYCE, they have combo's and an a la cart menu too.

Park out front at the meters. It is only about $1 an hour.

We came here because of some great reviews on Yelp. We wanted so much to like the place but we were terribly disappointed. You don't expect great food at an AYCE sushi place but it seemed they weren't even making the effort. We tried about 30 items, from appetizers, to sunomono, to sushi, rolls, cones, tempura and robata and there wasn't a single item I liked enough to ask for again. rice was mushy, fish sub par and didn't seem fresh, rolls unattractive, fried food overcooked, sauces rancid. service was slow and sullen (this is not a buffet, you have to mark on a card what you want). It almost seemed it was their business model to make you wait so you would eat less. After delivering our first wave of food they never came by and asked if they could get us something else, we always had to flag them down and felt guilty doing so. The decor (tatami rooms) was initially charming until you saw all the wear and tear.), the bathroom a bit grimy. For $24 a person, it was not worth it. They have a late night all you can eat at $15 and maybe at that price I could stomach the food.

I like the variety of food and the service is fast enough. The place could do with a bit of brightening up a bit. Definitely worth coming.

You'll have to look up to find this restaurant; it's on the 2nd floor located right above Earl's, in the traditional Asian style. We eat here nearly every week. Their lunch special is a terrific value: we can never eat it all and everything is freshly prepared, perfectly. They also have an 'all you can eat' lunch special which we have never used since we wouldn't get the value from it but we watch many people just eat and eat and eat so it's perfect for them. Try this place if you like sushi and cooked Japanese food.

We've had their dinner boxes dozens of times (mostly takeout) and you get a lot of food for your money. Very good specials going on most of the time. Worth checking out.
