This is sort of like running sushi, except the waiters are running around, highly effiecient. It's a cosy dark place, obviously very popular for dates and packed when we arrived around 8 pm. There was a queue for the tables.
All you can eat concept is to choose 5 dishes each at a time, up to 6 times and then they arrive when ready, so you always have something, but not everyhting at your table. The food was nice, not extraordinary, but good quality.

A few months ago the sushi was really delicious and better than Shabu Shabu. But last saturday was not even near. The sushi and other dishes were tasteless. On top of that, the people at thte table next to us were really noisy and the children were running around their table and bumping my chair everytime...

This is not somewhere you wanna go for a romantic evening out unless well you broke and hungry. The place is usually packed to the rafters and they confuse the foods that you have ordered or dont get what you ordered for.. Which can be heaven (if you get more than you asked or wrote for) or hell ( when you dont get what you ordered in the paper given to you)..
I went with my family, it was fun but kinda too loud for my parents hahaha.. it was still fun. Definately must visit but remember, RESERVE A SEAT! :-)

PS you got like 2 hours to eat whatever you order.. Great place for family members or friends.... Nothing romantic here! but still great restaurant.. :-D

The all you can eat formula has settled and Chinese enterprizes have embraced it by posing as Japanese. Eating an unlimited amount of sushi for about 20 euros is a luxury an average student can afford. So you have to book in advance and eat in a huge restaurant featuring lots of decibels and uninterested waiters & waitresses serving dry fish on big chunks of rice.

Saw the reviews and wasn't sure what to expect. All u can eat sushi can have a wide range of quality, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The sushi was good - the fish was fresh and there was a good fish to rice ratio, which is rare in all u can eat places. The menu is extensive, offering, lots of nigri, rolls, tempura items, udon, teriyaki items, salads and dessert. The only thing that is excluded is sashimi, which you have to pay more for - given how expensive it is I kind of understand, but wish they would have at least let us has a few pieces per person - oh well.

Service was fast - they took our order quickly, which was good because we were starving, and the refill orders came within 10 minutes of ordering - basically the table was never without food! This place was packed at 9:30pm, and we were lucky to get the last free table, so I think reservations would be a very good idea.

Note - you can't expect the best sushi for this price, but I think for an all u can eat place, the quality of food, speed of service, and atmosphere, it is definitely one of the better ones I've had. We left about 1 h 30 minutes later, extremely full, satisfied and still with money left in our wallets.
