  • Having dined-in as well as ordered take-out, I will confidently avoid this establishment in the future. In my experience, there is little consideration for the individual/customer. My order (whether in-house or delivery), has consistently been incorrect. Flavour has been inconsistent/ -mediocre at best. Proceed with caution.

  • Pros 1. Great Food Cons 1. If you want to feel like you wronged the staff in some way, eat here 2. If you want tea poured on your food because the staff is miserable and aren't watching where they pour, eat here. I ate numerous times and accumulated these views. Just ordered food at work from them. Asked for separate orders, and they put all the food together. Just a gloomy, miserable lot there. Good food is all the positive I have to say. They will never get another dollar from me. If I wanted to be treated like a POS, well I wouldn't. Never again

  • HORRIBLE! I didn't like the food and i normally love sushi, it was horribly put together. I thought there service was awful too. Never going here again.. akira may be a bit more pricey but worth every cent. This was just a plain rip off... might have been a few dollars less but i would rather better quality food. The atmosphere however was decent. The shrimp tempura was much too oily. the cheese wontons tasted like fish, like they never changed the oil it was fried in or something.. The fish looked discolored and not fresh! worst sushi i have ever had by far!

  • Order: dragon rolls, cheese wontons. gyoza, shrimp tempura

  • Really great place. I go all the time. It's really inexpensive and the staff treats me and everyone I go with very well. The sushi is always really good, and the menu has a lot of variety. I've never been disappointed. I enjoy sushi quite a bit, and I have been to every place in Barrie. This is by far the best.

  • Order: Diamond sushi roll, dynamic roll, california roll, miso soup, mango pudding, sirloin steak, etc.

  • Soo... Where to start?
    Placed order and stuff started to arrive. No apps first though, just whatever they had, some microwaved others not quite thawed, Had to reorder stuff they forgot to bring. My favorite thing is the "spider roll" which is supposed to be soft shell crab wrapped in rice. When it came it was "pollock" (fake crab) which was all the same temp and "gooey" throughout. Nearly made me chuck. Go somewhere where they have proper "sushi". I have no idea how anyone goes there. Awful!

  • Order: Spider Roll.. I thought?!

  • Great tasting food. Sushi is only third of their offering. The other two third is all really tasty cooked food!

    Great sashimi/sushi, tappenyaki, appetizers and rolls – that what I had!

    I did not get to try 30+% of their menu including UDON soups, tempura’s, noodles, rice dishes or deserts.

    I would recommend DIAMOND SUSHI on a heartbeat.

    Great value – Cnd $37 all-in with tip (1 all you can eat and 1 large sake + generous tip).

    I have tried one All-U-Can-Eat and one Regular Sushi place in Barrie – this one beats them hands down (no comparisons).

    Enjoy.

    sorry for anything..i did not get any chances to tell all the customers...i do not want to go back to there.i do not want to see the manerger there AT ALL..i dont know at all why i got fired..thank you for anyone who had ever talked to me..be nice to me...

    THANK YOU..

    For the food there..i do like food there.they are really good..i can give you some advies if you want to go there...

    DO NOT TRY SPICY CRISPY ROLL AT ALL..THAT IS JUST GARBAGE.just the tempura bits from the left over of temputa stuff from the kitchen...it tasts really good...but it not good at all...for 1 spicy crispy..just like 10 cents...

    SALMON AND WHITE TUNA are most fresh fishes in resturant..its better for you picking those two fish

    sushi and sashimi.sashimi is just the raw fish and sushi is the fish on the top and rice on the bottom...salmon flower and bbq ell are really good too.
    FOR the appetizer..scallops...cheese wonton...edamme..
    for the maki rolls..spicy salmon..spicy whit tuna..salom avocado..sweet honey roll..mango dragon and vocanlo roll.if you like eel..try to eat diamond roll.but most people did not like it..it tastes really creamy..i know lots of custmoers like califorlia roll...but honst...the crab meat inside is not a good crab meat...if you like crab..its better for you order from the sashimi or sushi..

    tempura stuff taste good...but it not health at all...if you like ...you can still try though...tempura shrimp and sweet potatos are popular one...

    noodle, ramen and udon...spicy beef undon and seafood undon are most popular one..noodle and remen are egg thin noodles and udon are rice thick noodles...

    for tenpanyakli...BBQ beef ribs and green onion beef roll...are top two orders..japanses shrimp with butter is very good...not that much people order it coz of the name...i had ever got the feedbacks from the customers...most customers said butter shrimp tasted better than tempura shrimp..160 cuttle fish...that is really good....if you can find them..

    beef don..culltle chinken don with egg don...eel don..are top three...for the fried undon and rice..beef fired undon and chicken fired rice are good...

    i work there i know which one is good...hope you can enjoy your meal..thanks a lot...thank you for reading them all

  • I live in between Waterloo and Barrie and have been to many all you can eat sushi restaurants in both cities, and this place as absolutely great in comparison to both cities. Every time I travel to Barrie I usually end up at a place with mediocre food and even more mediocre service. This place had great staff who were very friendly and helpful when it came to ordering, and who walked around every 2 minutes carrying water and tea to refill drinks with. They were also willing to take our order again regardless of our original waitress which was great. I've also noticed a lot of places typically serve mostly vegetarian options for their lunch menu and really lack on any good seafood rolls, but this place was completely opposite as the menu was hugggee with actual sushi options. The food was wondeful as well - really fresh, great portions, and very fast. We ordered A LOT and were given all of it within 7 minutes max. The dynamic roll was great, as well as the spicy white tuna roll. Lots of veggys and lots of fish in it. Again, regardless of how many tables filled up, the food kept coming at a fast pace. A lot of restaurants also seem to do their maki rolls made of only fish, no veggies (e.g. spicy salmon roll would only be salmon and spicy sauce); whereas this place had avocado in all of the maki rolls we ordered. Really impressed. It became out #1 within minutes, and were definitely ONLY coming here. Something interesting to try -- the snow roll. It's packed with tempura shrimp, crab, salmon, avocado, spicy mayo, and wrapped in rice paper with sauce drizzled on top. It's a little slippery to pick up but yum!

  • Order: Dynamic roll, spicy white tuna/spicy salmon roll, snow roll, spicy salmon roll, dynamite sushi

  • I just tried this place last week, and was very impressed. We were in the neighborhood and just happened to see it, and figured we'd give it a try. I wasn't expecting much as we had never heard of it, but we were very pleasantly surprised. They have a very good menu, and everything we ordered was very tasty. The rolls are nice and small, with minimal rice, different from most places. I will definitely be going back.

  • When we got there, we gave an order and didn't receive any of it. We had another girl come to the table, and we ordered something else. It was brought to our table, tasted awesome. Then had to sit and wait for another girl to come, and placed another order, in which we ordered a few things. They didn't come. We place another order for one thing, and that came. Its like they are limiting the amount you order, so your get sick of waiting so long, and just leave.
