Came here with some friends for all-you-can-eat sushi. The setting is nice and staff are quite helpful. We ate for a good 2 hours non-stop, filled with sushis. The food come in as your order them and not one of those self-service buffet. Food quality is not great, but we get our tummy filled to the max! Very reasonable price for all-you-can sushi.
Have been here several times, if you want to spend about £15 on sushi (all-you-can-eat), this is the place to go!
With A-Y-C-E, you get 1 dish of non-sushi (calamari, chicken, ,tempura, etc) and then all you can eat of a decent sized 'sushi' menu.
Of course this isn't the epitome of quality, although it is good quality, especially for price, about the best value for money sushi I have had.
This is a busy place, so best to give them a call about 1 hour ahead for a table any night of the week. And for how busy it is, the staff are quite friendly, and quick service and food hits your table pretty fast.
Check it out at least once!
I love this place when I want simple sushi, cheap and in huge quantities. The only bug bear I would say is that there isn’t much of a choice in the buffet if you want tuna. Personally I prefer salmon so do find myself spoiled for choice.
It’s definitely a great budget option if you want lots of sushi on a budget. The tempura and grilled squid are good too.
that s one of the best japanese in town, unluckily i can t go for now, as my parents needed me, so i m back to my country for a while, but, believe me, u have to try it before you can say anything else, such a friendly atmosphere, for a very fresh and wild food.
if you go with friend, then, at evenings, your can taste the delightful buffet menu, choosing between many different quality of sushi and sashimi, and reorder it as much as u like.
naturally you have to respect their rules, some of that stuff can be ordered, other not, anyway, u can t leave unhappy.
also take away service is good, not very fast that s true… but hay, i would see u preparing sushi!!!
must give 5 stars, defo.
This is a place that I rate! Its a great sushi buffet I never leave feeling unsatisfied or hungry. As well as the food being great so is their style! The place is small but also pretty cool! When you come to sit, your are litterally sitting on the floor while you legs go underground. Great place well reccommended.
Hi Sushi is one of the rare few places that offer all-you-can-eat sushi. For £13.50-£15 (depending on the day of the week), you get to choose from two limited menus, as mentioned by sickboyedd.
The hot food was pretty good, nothing special, but tasty. Out of the sushi list, the crab roll was disappointing, as the rolls were stuffed with artificial crab meat (the 80p for a pack kind from Sainsburys). The spicy salmon rolls were good, and the salmon sashimi came as thick juicy slices. The quality of the salmon is actually very good. Just be careful when ordering that if you choose some of the “cheaper” sushis (like the crab roll), they will serve you massive amounts of that to get you full so you order less of the salmon sashimi, which is normally quite expensive when ordered a la carte in any Japanese restaurant.
The restaurant itself is quite small, with a low ceiling and only 5 big tables, so it is most likely that you will be rubbing elbows with your neighboring diner! Not a place to bring a date or to impress, but someplace you would go if you’re really hungry for sushi and just with a bunch of mates. However, for £15, you can get a decent Japanese meal at other restaurants that will leave you feeling full, and perhaps better satisfied.
“All you can eat” and “Japanese food” are a rare combination of words to hear. That’s what Hi Sushi have to offer, so I was curious as to what exactly that entailed. My main worry is that with sushi, in particular, it’s about so much more than quantity, it’s about texture and subtlety of flavour. Could Hi Sushi keep the quality and somehow offer as much as anyone could devour?
The all-you-can-eat option comes in at just under £15, which isn’t too steep considering location and that it’s Japanese food. For this, you’re presented with two pieces of paper. One lists hot food, like Tempura and Yakitori, and you get a limited choice of 6-7 dishes from this. The other lists the mainly salmon and tuna based sushi and sashimi, of which you can continue re-ordering until they have to roll you out of the restaurant. The hot food was pretty good, as was the sushi, but no where near as delicious as some of the other restaurants in London (like the awesome Asa Kusa). However, the fact is that it was fresh, tasted good and was presented nicely. The service was great too, not intrusive but there if you needed it.
The real quandary really lies in when would you want to go eat there? Personally, I go for sushi when I really want to treat myself, when I’m wanting something special. Hi-Sushi doesn’t really offer the high end quality. It’s more of a place to go with mates, some of whom haven’t really tried sushi yet. The dishes are straight forward and more suited for “beginners” who might not know what to expect. After this induction, you can then take them somewhere more exotic :)
