“okay”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Quality of the sushi is good. Service is fast but very cold and impersonal. Place can get really noisy and crowded. Crowd that goes isn't the nicest per se. Best sushi in town served @ asian palace.

“Great all you can eat sushi restaurant”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great all you can eat sushi restaurant in the heart of Leiden. Good and fast service and reasonable prices. Delicious and fresh sushi rolls and other japanese delicacies! Loved the green tea too. ! Just bear in mind that if you turn up friday or saturday evening it can be really busy so you might want to reserve in advance.

“Good all you can eat sushi and more”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Always make reservations for this restaurant, especially in the weekend! It's absolutely packed. There are two dinner services, we were there during the 20.00 to 22.30 service. Menu is stuffed with sushi's, noodles, rice dishes, tepan yaki dishes, vegetarian dishes etc. Shabu Shabu also offers 4 Japanese beers, besides the regular Jupiler. Try the Iki!!!

The all you can eat service consists out of 4 rounds, in which you are allowed 5 dishes per round each. Food arrives shortly after ordering. Food is at the right temperature and very tasty! We had a lovely time sampling eachothers dishes. The Eel with rice and stir fried mushrooms were my absolute favorites.

The restaurant gives you one free scoop of icecream afterwards, you need to pay for any extra's.

Will go here again, it's really cheap, lunch at €17,50, dinner from €22,50. An all you can eat sitting in the weekend is €24,50 - drinks not included.
