All you can eat face off, which is best: The best all you can eat sushi or Brunch Buffet?

Give me your opinions, and best places to go!

Frankly, I have no clue.

The whole breakfast versus dinner thing intrigues me!

  1. I'm scared of all you can eat sushi

    1. The recommendation below is by wilafur - another poster here on the LA board. I am pretty sure that a few other posters have written good things about Midori too.

      "truly best bang for the buck, the acye deal at midori. they have a location in both studio city and sherman oaks. $26 for dinner. not even close to being the best sushi, but definitely the best ayce sushi joint in town.

        What I mean is, if you had the choice between an all you can eat sushi meal, or a breakfast buffet, which would you choose?

        and then which are the best of your choice!

        1. re: tony michaels

          The sushi at Midori is average at best and remember, it's all you can eat for one hour...

          Also the hot house sake is just godawful. Rockefuel.

          1. re: Maxmillion

            I never drink house sake, and never, ever hot. If the sake is served hot, I skip sake and have a beer or water.

            Hot sake is a way to try and make cheap icky sake palatable.

            I can put away a bit in an hour, teeny as I am, I put college boys to shame when caled upon to do so (just not often is the key to staying small), !

            Mediocrity...well, I dunno, gotta think about that one.

            1. re: Diana

              no one ever said midori is great sushi, however, its a good place to go to stuff yourself to the gills with decent sushi for a low low price. do not expect nozawa, sushi zo, kiriko, etc quality sushi and you will be good to go.

              and i echo diana's comment on hot sake.........good sake is not supposed to be drunk hot.

        2. diana, its really comparing apples to oranges. as you yourself mentioned ayce sushi is more of a dinner indulgence whereas a brunch buffet, is....err....brunch.

          however, if you had a choice between ayce prime rib or ayce sushi, that would be a very very tough choice for me. =)

          1. the best all you can eat that i've had for sushi was at chomp in downtown fullerton.

            on thursday nights(830-11) they have an ayce event and also i think sunday brunch(930-2).

            not sure about sunday but if u want to go thursday, i'd recommend getting there early. it gets insanely busy. and dont expect a quiet dinner at this place. its more of a loud party scene

            oh yeah here's the link

              1. LOL! My kids (when they were little) used to beg to go to Todai for their special occasion. But after a few visits to Yamaha (when Victorwas still there), Komyoshi, and Mako, they are converted. And Sushi snobs to boot! Something College kids can't afford to be!
