I can't put my finger on it, but I've been to this place maybe twice now, and I just don't care for it. The sushi seems institutional--sort of like the kind you get at the grocery store. It's bland with not much variety and overall just strikes me as way too institutional. Not worth the price. The idea of the buffet is good, so if you're looking for that, try Todai in Redmond. Not much to hoot and holler about here.
