Sushi. You either have a burning passion for it or the thought of eating imitation crab meat and tuna in roll form makes you want to roll yourself off a cliff. For my fellow passionate sushi lovers out there, this review is dedicated to you.

I recently discovered a fairly new established sushi restaurant on Precinct Line and I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it was all you can eat. Just let that sink in for a moment. All. You. Can. Eat.

As a high school student who would rather spend her already slim paycheck on food rather than saving it for something responsible like, oh I don’t know, college tuition, I was also happy to see that the price for the buffet was extremely reasonable. The set price at that location was $11.99 and depending on how much you can possibly fit in your body, you can easily get your money’s worth.

The establishment has a nice and simple aesthetic, complete with white accents. This sterile atmosphere is quite convenient and definitely appreciated when you’re nearing a fifth round of sushi and all you want to do is vomit. The comforting lights and soothing white chairs and non-judgmental stares serve as great encouragement, helping you push on and continue to eat your entire body weight in sushi.

As for the sushi itself, there is a wide variety to choose from and no matter how many times you think the sushi is going to run out, it just magically keeps reappearing. This is due to the constant dedication of the men behind the counters who freshly roll the sushi and restock the platters as soon as they’re running low.

In addition to the never-ending sushi choices, you also have the option to take a break from the rolls and nibble on the other foods that are offered, which range from the classic dumplings to fried rice and traditional Japanese tempura dishes.

As for quality, the sushi lands in the middle of the sushi range. It’s not the cheap sushi that’s been sitting out for 20 years at the grocery store bad, but it’s also not the gourmet this is more expensive than my entire life good sushi either. It’s the perfect balance between cheap and dingy and super duper fancy.

Overall, I give SushiYaa an 8.5 out of 10.
(P.S. They also have an ice cream machine with an unlimited supply of cones, so my official rating is actually an 8.7 – you can never go wrong with ice cream).
