Sushi D on College (the D is for DON'T waste your money)

Made the mistake of trying Sushi D in little Italy with a friend last night. Japango was deemed too far a trek and this was a new place that my friend had been meaning to try. The choice of two all you can eat menus (Maki rolls only for $12.99, choice of everything on the menu for $18.99) should have been the give away. I could give more details about returned brown rice maki rolls (made with still warm rice) and uninspired sushi, but suffice to say, that you'd be better off with ready-made from your grocer. Just don't bother.
In my opinion, Sushi Island is slightly better compared to Sushi D. But neither one of them can be compared to Japango. They serve different clientèles with distinctive budgets. I go to Sushi Island when I want to get stuffed on a budget; Japango is my destination when I want to treat myself with their wonderful makis.
Went here about a month ago, cause my friend was raving about how it was his favourite sushi place... well, it wasn't terrible, and it was pretty cheap - but I found the tuna sushi to be mushy and a lack of choices that weren't random rolls that didn't sound too appetizing.
Japango is way better than Sushi D, but i went to Omi Sushi recently for lunch which was ammaaazing compared to my lunch at Japango. they've converted me!
I've never been to Omi at lunch time, only for dinner. I prefer Japango for maki, and Omi for sushi and sashimi. I find the fish at at Omi tastier compared to Japango.
The one low point for Omi in my opinion is their omakaze; the food is not worth what they charge. For that kind of money, I prefer the tasting menu at Canoe; it is a different kind of experience, I know, but I find it much more satisfying.
