I've been to many sushi restaurants and this place is by far the best "all you can eat" restaurants in Ontario. The selection and freshness rival the traditional non-buffet style restaurants; and you get to leave the restaurant full and happy! Our family ate at...More

The food and service is always great at East. The dining room is nice and spacious. Servers are prompt and polite. You can sample different meat and vegetables on skewers here (garlic shrimp, grilled zucchini and pineapple, chicken, etc). There is something for everyone here.

Genuinely superb quality sushi-well above my expectations for an AYCE. The warm down-lighting and decor is inviting and the staff service was prompt, courteous and very efficient. We got in early for Friday lunch, worth doing so as it fills up quite fast. We were...More

Beautifully decorated and loaded with wonderful staff, this is a lovely place to eat. The sushi is good and Joshua was awesome! The cocktails are even half priced on Tuesdays. It's a little more expensive than the average sushi place but it's well worth it...More
