August 8 - Hamilton, ON

All you can eat sushi if you have never attempted before this might be a fantastic plan to eat a great deal of sushi for roughly $20 in most restaurants. That's what got me intrested but talk to some who have been to the all you can eat will tell you, if you order too much and and do not Finnish some items the restaurant will charge you full price of that item. Now that you understand the concept and opportunity for the restaurant to charge you more you are a little more prepared.

 When I arrived to August 8 my server was very quick to suggest multiple menu items more than can be eaten at the table, I looked over the items and only selected a few. This was not acceptable by the waitress she was insistant on having more items selected but I stuck to my plan and and if I was still hungry I would order more and I suggest you do the same.
 First I ordered the Shrimp Tempura and Pumpkin Tempura both came out very quickly and plated very well, the Tempura batter was beautifully and lightly colored, very crispy and cooked in fresh oil. I liked the Shrimp but thought the Pumpkin was amazing crisp on the outside and soft in the middle.

Next was the Mango chicken and Supreme Shrimp dim sum, The Shrimp was recommended by my waitress and said was the customer favorite and I will have to agree the soft doughy texture with a pipping hot shrimp in the middle lightly salty was great.

Now the House Deep Fried roll and the Spicy Tuna roll presentation was done very well and if it tastes as good as the look I'm in for a treat. The spicy tuna roll rice was nicely seasoned and the deep fried panko in the centre provided nice texture and light flavor, I'm a fan of this roll!

My plan worked as you can see there is a great deal of food for $20 and I was full, they kept trying hard to have me order more items than I could eat but stick to the plan of 1 to 2 items at a time and you will be fine. The service was very good they were super friendly even though they try to sell you more, however at the end of the meal my waitress said "you didn't eat too much so I insist you come back again". I will the food was fantastic and I got great value for my meal.
