All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Buffet
$22/person (tax & tip included)
To welcome a visiting friend, the bf and I went to House of Sushi with a couple friends from college for a sushi buffet. Nobody knows of this food blog of mine, so I only snagged a few shots of our platters without raising any suspicion.
Wait time on a Saturday night at 7pm was ~30 minutes. LOTS of young people and college-age groups!
I didn’t get to capture the two plates of tempura veggies, the little cups of miso soup, and the edamame…but they came in small plates. Re-fillable though if you ask for it. Twice.
How it works: Everyone orders two rolls first, and then when you’re done, you order another 2 rolls, and so on. There are over 25+ types of rolls on the menu that you are free to order. If you leave ANYTHING on your plate, you’re charged $5 for wasting food.
The amazing thing is, the waitress will tell you what roll is which on every platter when she brings the plates over. Imagine doing this multiple times per table!! What skill!
I ordered: A Chicago Crazy Maki, a New York Maki Roll, Mexican Maki Roll, & a Yellowtail Maki.
The bill came out to be around $22 per person including tax and tip. Not bad for a big sushi dinner! Given presentation wasn’t exactly AWESOME, the fish was fresh and the service was speedy, and we had a good time! So what more can you ask?
They even had chocolate fortune cookies to end the meal with!!
Taste: 3/5 (Yes, average. Fresh fish but all served warm, probably because of the warm rice)
Originality: 4/5 (I like the concept, as well as the unique maki’s they have – like the Mexican roll and the ninja!)
Value: 4/5 (LOTS of rice, lots of sushi, big tummy after dinner!)
Service: 4.5/5 (Fast service and very nice waitresses who don’t ever screw up large orders!)
Last words? I’d come back with big sushi eaters who love variety!!!
