Spring Sushi

About: Spring Sushi is an AYCE that is housed in the same building as the Cineplex Odeon Yonge & Dundas Cinemas. As for location, it's conveniently located steps away from the Eaton's Center.

Atmosphere/Decor: Our group of four arrived for our 6:00 pm reservation. We didn't wait too long for a table to clear. I thought that the overall d├ęcor was very modern and clean looking.

Price: My friends and I went on a Thursday night so it was $23.99 per person. For weekends, and holidays; you'd need to add $2.00 more to the adult prices. Compared to other nearby downtown AYCE, some may find the prices at Spring Sushi to be a little steep.

Menu:  One of the great appeals of Spring Sushi is the novelty of using iPads to order. The iPads are available at every table and the orders are sent directly to the kitchen staff. I know of a couple of other AYCE that have also implemented the uses of iPads for taking orders as it does somewhat speed up the processes and also allows the restaurants to digitally showcase their menu. Spring Sushi's execution by using the iPads was pretty decent as the interface was both easy to use and the pictures were colorful.

Food: Spring Sushi offers the typical AYCE fare but their menu was a little more extensive than others as they also have Thai and special sushi dishes. Their sushi and sashimi offering was decent and edible, but the rice in the sushi had a rather overly wet texture. Additionally, I thought that the cooked food was either a hit or miss. I enjoyed a majority of their grilled and deep fried dishes. However, their take on Thai dishes such as pad thai, satay skewers and coconut shrimp was just not very good. For example, the pad thai lacked immense flavor, and the noodles was excessively wet and soft. Although, I was happy that the servings weren't too big so that my friends and I were able to try out multiple dishes.

Service: We ran into a minor problem with the iPads during our second round of ordering as we didn't receive half of our orders. We flagged down a waiter and he apologized for the inconvenience, and promptly took down our orders by hand. I thought that the staff were attentive and efficient as our water was being refilled throughout the night and our empty plates were taken away right away.
