AYCE Japanese Dinner

I know this has been beaten to death but the quality of these places keep changing.

Anyways, I usually head to Ninkazu but it seems it's gone pretty downhill these days.

Any places you guys would recommend for AYCE Jap for dinner time?

kingsway sushi is by far, the best AYCE experience. 5/5 service, 4.5/5 food quality (can't expect them to be perfect when it comes to AYCE), reasonable prices. Couldn't ask for more.

BC sushi is pretty good as well when it comes to late night sushi, VERY reasonable prices, unlimited sashimi, and pretty good service.

Fish on Rice Kingsway sucks, was there last week. Some sashimi was not that fresh and their rolls, they put in so much rice to stuff you up.

Service was shitty too, waitress give us the bill but we continued talking and didn't pay yet. She comes back 30min later with ANOTHER bill and the interac machine and stood there waiting for us to pay.

yeah fucking shitty service, which was why i didn't include it in my list. one of the waitresses actually whispered in canto to her coworker "sik say cuoi day" which basically means they want us to die for eating so much....thinking we wouldn't hear. The one thing i would actually complement them on is their free drinks, but that's it.

I would recommend going to an actual sushi place for the money you are spending.

But if you want AYCE, Kingsways or B.C. sushi. It all taste the same me. Just the service is a bit better than the other places.

totally agreeable. AYCE will just never compare with fine japanese sushi cuisine. It really is a different experience when you order sushi by the menu. Food quality for one, is infinetly better.

I've stopped doing AYCE and doing this now. I find it to be cheaper with a large group, when going to a decent Japanese restaurant, and of course the quality cannot begin to be compared.

There is a downside though, at AYCE, you can stuff yourself silly at the end with mango pudding.

The only reason you should ever go to AYCE is if you are under 18.

...or maybe if you look like this:



Otherwise, there's no good reason to eat terrible sushi. Spend that $20 at a decent Japanese restaurant (there's plenty here in Vancouver) and you'll get a good meal instead of shitty ingredients put together by Chinese people that don't know what they're doing so everything tastes like a goddamn California roll.

Kingsway Sushi, or B.C. Sushi on Broadway.

You should probably go to an actual sushi bar though; even though the idea of an 'unlimited' amount of sushi sounds enticing, save yourself the chance of getting sick from eating way too much

I actually like AYCE sometimes. It's not so much that I want to stuff myself, but for the 15 bucks for late night, I can get a much better variety than if I were to go to an actual sushi bar. When I go to AYCE, it's not because I'm craving sushi/sashimi. But I can go and get wings, and short ribs, and gomae and etc. Things that just add up to a hefty bill if you order them from a decent sushi place.

Maybe it's just me and people actually go for the garbage sushi/sashimi?
