Delicious food. The all you can eat ("ayce") is $50 with all you care to drink alcohol; so worth it. Some items are not included in ayce, but the staff is good about letting you know this up front. You can order 3 items per round per person. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because on the 2nd round my fiance and I ordered 6 items, and they only gave us 4 of the six things we ordered (they gave 2 things that we didn't order, but where still tasty). Not a major problem, I just ordered the two items not given on round 3. Some favorites: Monster TNT and Monster Luck. More...

For a AYCE sushi restaurant, the quality is actually pretty good. Sashimi are fresh, rolls are tasty too. Also a bunch of different appetizer and hot food.

We went a few times and will keep going. The food is great. Service is good. Slow to bring the orders.

The FRESHEST ayce sashimi/rolls in the area.
Satisfied our sashimi cravings, since we were a bit skeptical in the beginning.

Please note:
-$41 dinner
-$36 lunch
-they are only open FRIDAY-SUNDAY so expect long queues

-TIP FREE..so you may Eat, pay w/o tip and leave. DH still wanted to tip due to the good service, but tipping is optional here.

-not your typical AYCE where you grab your food, rather servers bring your orders to your table, hence the wait times

-Also, this is an AYCE so not quite sure why all are complaining with the wait times, that is the norm when coming to an AYCE spots

-reservations are taken only for groups of 6 or >

-extra fees for: otoro, negitoro and unagi

-edamame and self serve ice cream is found on the back right side of the restaurant (upon entrance). Ice cream waffles is bolted up against the wall.

Other reviewers did point out the lack of staffing, however, the servers were attentive and provided our orders to our table in

Long line, even if you make reservations, still have to wait 15-30 minutes. And food comes out pretty slow. The scallop sashimi is amazing though!

Lunch is better than dinner. But still always good.

They still have excellent food and service, but they have all these new rules, only 3 items per round of orders, per person, and will be charged extra for any not eaten, and only all you can eat from 5-7pm instead of all the time. Only open 3 days a week etc...
I just hope they dont go under

My favorite sushi place. High-quality, fresh sushi that is reasonably priced. (All-you-can-eat)

Delicious, fresh food with a great ambience. Great place for a first date. Head to the harbour for drinks and a romantic walk afterwards.

This is probably one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever eaten at. If you're driving up the 1 around Half Moon Bay for lunch, do yourself a favor and stop here. The food was very fresh and the fish was very high quality grade. We did not order the all you can eat sushi, but I will be back when I have a bigger appetite. More...

First time we (party of 6, no AYCD) here, we had an amazing experience. Second time, also party of 6 but half of us upgraded to all you can drink, it was the polar opposite. Most of our order never came out. It took 45 minutes for our 3rd round to come out. We even told them that alot of the items never came out. They did not even apologize nor did they notify us before hand if there was even a reason why they weren't able to bring out the dishes. They also kicked us out because we met our time limit, even though we waited 45 minutes without food for our 3rd course. More...
