I go to Sapporo a lot with my friends and I feel like the food is not so exciting anymore. Especially with the weak dessert menu. Other than that, the food there is generally well prepared and quite tasty. Service is great when they are not too busy. Weekend and dinners are a lot more pricey, so try to stick... More

Wonderful service, amazing food, great price. Only thing I don't like is really small parking lot...

I cannot have more amazing things to say about this place, I have yet to find a sushi joint as delicious or as good value! As I order from here at least once a week (they offer takeout and delivery!) I have a few favourite dishes. The Tom Yum Soup is warm, savoury and flavourful with large portions. The tuna... More

This is a place I don't eat often, but the previous visits were good enough for me to return. However, the latest visit with my friends today left horrible taste in our mouths. Both food and service were poorly conducted. I understand that today being Valentine's Day is a busy night for most restaurants, but it is not an excuse... More

This is my favourite sushi restaurant, and it is also the favourite of my friends and family. We go here all the time for birthdays and celebrations, and have even made it the place we go for Christmas Eve dinner. The food has always been great quality. I especially like the salmon roses, deep-fried scallops, and mackerel sashimi. I occasionally... More

My wife and I frequent Sapporo quite often for lunch. It is our favorite lunch AYCE place as it serves Salmon Rose. The food quality is always good and the staff are friendly and always happy to help or explain any dish. I would recommend this for lunch only as it is quite expensive at $25 a person for dinner,...

After visiting Spring Sushi multiple times, I figured it was time to give Sapporo a shot after hearing a few relatively positive reviews from my colleagues. The menu was on a tablet, much like many of the other sushi places around so it was a familiar interface. Service was prompt, and dishes were cleared fairly quickly. We placed our initial... More

On a weekday, three of us came here, two for all-you-can-eat dinner, one of us ordered A la carte. Overall, the service was good: we were seated, given waters, teas, the iPad service is nifty, and our orders came pretty quickly and were completely filled. The trick is to be reasonable. Order enough for the people there, but not too... More

I have never enjoyed a moment in this place. The waitress once started an argument with me about something I ordered saying I can't have it and threw me a bowl of ice cream that I didn't want instead, like chucked it at me? We later said we would pay with debit not knowing that their too cheap to pay... More

Kiss of death for me. Been here many times. Know it is is busy so made a reservation. arrived 2 minutes early (go figure.) Gave a full table to people who arrived with us but in the door first ahead of us in line. What's the point of a reservations you might ask. " We are very busy." Yes, ergo... More
