Overall the meal was not very good. We had sushi which was not fresh. The tempura was okay. The terakyi salmon was good but literally one bite in size. The servers barely acknowledged us. I was really disappointed and will not go back.

Despite being one of the better AYCE sushi places in Ottawa, it's still not great. Depending on when you go, wait times to get in can be long. The service is fast, but often unfriendly and inconsistent (sometimes they'll be attentive with water, sometimes not,...More

We were glad we came at 11am on a Sunday morning because the line was crazy when we finished. Definitely the go-to restaurant for high quality sushi buffet. Ordering from an iPad is also way more efficient than paper. Every dish has a picture and...More
