I will do a comparison review of two Ginza locations: the one at Yonge/Clark and the new one on Duffrin/Major Makenzie plaza (lets call it Ginza Maple).
Well, let me start by saying that Ginza Sushi at Yonge/Clark has been there for a long time and the all-you-can-eat concept was introduced just recently. Previously, it was well known for its decent sushi and hordes of Thornhill dwellers roaming this relatively small establishment. Nowadays, they focus primarily on AYCE and Thai (Korean) options.

Food:
Ginza Yonge/Clark: still decent. Don’t expect exquisite taste, but all in all not bad for AYCE.
Ginza Maple: awful, just awful. Rise is frozen, sushi taste like paper and everything tastes the same. The boys and girls working there have no idea what sushi supposed to taste like, they remotely know how to roll them and what goes where, but there is no saving this place without a new chef. So if you actually tried good sushi made by a Japanese chef, prepare to spit a lot of this food out. I mean it – not just go “mew, not the best”, but wonder how could you ever put it in your mouth.

Service:
Ginza Yonge/Clark: mediocre to bad. Somewhat better for a la carte menu orders, but bad for the AYCE. Orders often get mixed up, they rarely bring you all that you’ve ordered and we had a waitress come to us and inquire if we want to scale our order down – there were too many items on it in her not-so-humble opinion. There were six hungry adults at the table, so we said ‘no’. Didn’t get all we ordered anyway. If you want to assess a service at this place, imagine a Chinatown Mom-Pop place and you’ll get the idea. Waiters unceremoniously pushing customers out of their way, you “excuse mes” get ignored and the cleanness of tables/plates is doubtful.

Ginza Maple: service is surprisingly good. This is its strongest point – but doesn’t compensate for uneatable food. The boys and girls working at this place really try – all they need to do now is learn how to smile. Regardless, you get what you've ordered and promptly.

Ambiance:
Ginza Yonge/Clark: the owners took over the adjacent unit and turned it into a larger restaurant with an attempt at “modern chick” design a while ago, but introducing white seating in a place where the tables are wiped onto the floor and debris lands everywhere is just laughable. The décor is cheap and tacky looking, but somewhat better than you’d find in other small eateries north of Steeles.
Ginza Maple: it’s new and there is a real strive here for modern décor. Its all wood paneling and darkened light – too bad this joint is loved by kiddies birthday parties and loud families.
Recommendation: get take outs from Ginza Yonge/Clark. Stay away from Ginza Maple.

Eat there few times and once we went there for the "all you can eat: lunch.
I have to say that this is the best sushi in the area by far and the price for such a good sushi is really low.
Made few deliveries from them and the sushi always comes fresh just as if you would order it in the restaurant.

Highly recommended and we will keep eating there.

Been a customer for 5 years & Every time I take someone new here they are very impressed! Not only is their service fast and their restaurant squeaky clean, they have a VERY expansive menu offering a very wide and creative selection of Sushi rolls..even for a Vegan (like me!)...They've also added Thai menu in the last year or two, although I haven't tried my Mom says it's a 9/10. (Which is very good by her standards).

Check out their menu in advance, because I can guarantee you will have a hard time deciding. Some of my friends favourites are the Sunshine Roll & Tropicana Roll, also they love the Kamikaze roll and their "Ginza" roll is like no other.

Their Seaweed salad is of a generous portion, and their pricing is reasonable considering the quality of preparation. If your used to Top Quality Cut Sushi, this may be a bit of a downgrade (according to my brother) but for the price, the value is definitely superb.

It gets really busy some nights, so come early or late, or best to make a reservation (I think they still accept them). Their other location in Toronto (Finch & Bayview) delivers...not sure if this one does as well.
