I have been to Toshi a few times with a Groupon 2 for 1 sushi buffet offer. They have the best sushi buffet in town for the price. They have very good deals on their special sushi nights. The staff is very friendly, and they do their best to help the customers enjoy their visit.

The interior of the restaurant is very nice. They have a Japanese/Chinese theme with a relaxing dimly lit dining room. They have a smart casual dress code which also helps maintain a nice atmosphere.

My only caveat is that they could improve the sushi buffet by making sure that there are always clean plates available and keeping the sushi bar well stocked. It sometimes takes too much time for both of these things. It would be nice if there were a little more selection on the sushi buffet menu.

Overall, I like this restaurant. I saw one recent bad review. It was too harsh in my opinion. I'll be back!

This used to be one of the best spots in abu dhabi, but since this Groupon promotion was create you guys managed to kill the restaurant.
This place now is looking pretty much like a zoo….
Over packed, with people running for food (like there is no tomorrow) and loud.
Staff has no more time to talk with regular guests (unfortunately you can see that they are now spending their night handling unreasonable complains after all this place still have the best sushi and makis in town).
Should be back to your restaurant once you guys decide to close this promotion and finish your Asian Mc Donalds season…

Had dinner at Toshi while staying in The hotel.

The front office was efficient and friendly. The decor, very beautiful.

Tonight is sushi buffet. It was a laid back affair with about 8 types of maki, 3-4 types of nigiri, and 4 types of sashimi. Compared to some all you can eat offers in the UAE, the range was a bit on the lean side. The flavors were mostly spot on but, this being a hotel, you expect a little bit more, especially with the "spicy tuna" that was made from canned tuna.

Floor service was a little lacking, with many staff failing to notice us calling them for service. Maybe they were too busy or the room was too dark, but the fact is that it took about 5 minutes to get their attention, get our correct bill, etc.

The open buffet is very poor with limited selection
The quality of the food is bad.
The menu is overpriced.
The staff is not knowledgeable and do not speak properly English, making difficult to communicate with.

We visited Toshi a week ago and found it such an excellent venue that we returned last night (21/5). On the first occasion I had the buffet and my husband had a la carte - both meals were excellent. Last night we partook in the sushi/sashimi/teppanyaki buffet and we could not believe the incredible choice and options available. Beverages were included which made the entire evening one of remarkable value for the money. The staff were extremely attentive and we will return as often as possible.
