Ji Sushi restaurant serves appetizers, soup, salads, tempura, noodles, don, sashimi, nigiri, and various rolls. They have a choice of an all you can eat (AYCE) menu or a la carte. AYCE is $13.95 with an extra dollar charge on weekends and a few dollars more for sashimi option.
I had just gotten off the Canada Line, looking for Sushi and saw JI across the street. I had arrived at 3pm, to try their ACYE Sushi and was seated immediately.
I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki, Goyza, Dynamite Roll, Salmon Nigiri and salmon roll. Everything I tried was good, and liked the Chicken Teriyaki, great flavour and tasted great. I was surprised with the Goyza, very fresh and loved how it tasted. The dynamite was made really well and was my favourite and the Salmon Nigiri, was fresh, lots of flavour and I could have eaten lots more. I did find the salmon rolls, fell apart really easily and didn't have as much flavour as the rest meal.
The service was friendly, quick and helpful and quite like how relaxed the restaurant was, and did service checks throughout my meal. I decided to quit ahead, when I was full, and decided not to over stuff myself.
Acye sushi for $10.99 before taxes & tips, was a great deal. I will have to come back from 3 to 6pm, when I want ACYE sushi. Easy to get to and worth the visit.
I just tried Ji Sushi the other day. Normally I am not a huge fan of AYCE as I find the quality can be sub par but I decided to go for it anyways.
I ordered a bunch of items including the dynamite roll, tuna nigiri, saba nigiri, spicy tuna cone, chicken yakitori, bbq beef short rib, etc. They were all pretty decent except the chicken yakitori because it didn't have any sauce on it and just tasted like some sort of Asian five spice. I guess they forgot the sauce, hopefully that's not how they serve it.
The nice thing about their portions is if you are dining alone, you can try a lot of different things as most rolls are served as half rolls similar to other AYCE sushi restaurants. They also have daily beer specials which aren't a bad deal. Overall I enjoyed the food but not sure if I will be back given the number of competing sushi restaurants.
The title says it all. The food was about average for the low price. We waited (menu's closed, making eye contact with several servers) for about 15 to 20 minutes before they took our order... No water, no tea. Food came and our yam rolls were hard and undercooked and had to be sent back.
Won't be returning as there are several better sushi joints within a block with better food and far better service.
Been here a couple times time,tried their lunch and AYCE happy hr,but not dinner yet.
Food：decent,surprisingly fresh for a AYCE place, not too much rice in the sushi rolls like others,loved the gomae.
Service: great,attentive with the hot tea,fast and polite,food came out fast enough.
Ambiance: great,clean and comfortable,looks like a new place,not the floor tho.
Price:Cheap,9.95 for AYCE!!?
Repeat:why not,cant expect more for only 10 dollars!
Me and a few friends went to Ji sushi for the ayce special today as we were in the neighborhood. I eat sushi quite often and really enjoy ayce from time to time. This place however fell far below my standards. There was no sashimi on the menu! The gyozas were floppy, and soggy. The sushi rice was over cooked and fell apart very easily, and was almost hot under the fish. The green salad had about an inch of water in the bottom of the bowl. The fish itself wasn't firm, and lacked flavor. I ordered a can of gingerale, and they charged me 2.50!!! and didnt even give me a glass.
The service was reasonably good for an ayce joint, they came fast with the food, and were pleasent enough.
But there are way way better ayce sushi joints out there, with more variety, better tasting food and in a similar price bracket.
I probably wont be going back.
