  • This place is probably the best all-you-can-eat in Vancouver. It has an amazingly huge selection. Most of the food is great. However, when we went, the seaweed in the cones was noticeably chewy and difficult to eat. Though that's my only gripe with the food, it's pretty significant.

    I have to mention that the mango pudding was really flavorful. It tasted like they used real mango.

    The food came quite quickly, considering that apparently they make it on order and never pre-make or freeze it. Servers were good, refilling water and taking empty plates without much delay. Pretty good service.

    The atmosphere was strange. It was a fancy-looking restaurant for the most part, BUT there were two TVs in front of the kitchen, which lessened the Japanese feel. Also, the restaurant was huge, and though there were at least 25 patrons when we were there, it looked mostly empty. Even the parking lot was mostly empty. After the good things I heard about this restaurant, I was surprised to see a lot of empty seats on a Friday.

    I'd go back to the restaurant again, but only once in a while. The price was about $33 a person (after tax and tip). Though it is better than other all-you-can-eat places in Vancouver, one must question whether it is twice as good (as the price is twice as much as many places).
