I always read around for reviews before I even attempt to visit the restaurant. In fact over the past week or so I’ve eaten out so much that my diet is now at an all-time low. It was my birthday last week and boy did I get fat. I’m just going to dive right into the review.

It’s a little on the dark side but I feel that AYCE restaurants do this on purpose. They might want to use dark lighting to deceive customers into thinking their food looks awesome. Jokes aside, the place is separated into booths and are quite comfy to sit in. Once again the wind barrier architecture system is poorly built, a few booths near the entrance will feel strong gusts of wind sweeping in from time to time. My recommendation is to wait for a better table or come in the summer lols.

Honestly not the very best but like I said the restaurant is run by Chinese people. I read reviews where people complained about how slow their service was in the “seating” portion which makes total sense. We arrived on a Thursday night and tables took forever to be cleaned and there was a couple begging to leave but the staff neglected to bring them the card machine. I’m going to tell you the truth about Chinese people – they usually work from opening to closing and there are no such things as shift work. So most of them (from what I think) are probably worn out, which of course doesn’t excuse their tardiness but this restaurant wasn’t THAT bad. After we ordered the food, 90% of our orders were met and those dishes came within 10 minutes of us filling the form. Service is not their forte so please make a note of what you ordered beforehand.

Wow, so much variety. Coming here is definitely a treat for the taste buds and our eyes. I recently reviewed Ten-Ichi and just like that restaurant, the quality here is decent. I think they had a few misses especially with the following: asparagus wrapped beef, miso soup, and fried chicken wings. It’s not that they tasted bad but your stomach would appreciate other food than being stuffed with something so average. Now these are my personal recommendations: shrimp (I forgot what type), ribs, mushrooms on skewer, udon, and the dessert (ALL KINDS) really did scream amazing. A lot of people come for the beef tataki but if you have tried this at Guu then unfortunately you will be disappointed. The food was generally quite good and offers favourites that are different than Ten-Ichi.










My Rating: 84%
What it Deserves: 85%

Sushi Legend on Urbanspoon

Believe it or not, I think this restaurant deserves more recognition than Ten-Ichi. Service-wise, I’ve deducted a fair amount of points (which Ten-Ichi really did score higher in) but its location and pricing are better for the general public. Parking is unfortunately a bitch here (despite more spots) because every restaurant in this plaza are popular and top-notch. I feel that Sushi Legend will get better in time and will prove to be worthwhile for the couple, single, and family experience.
