Ninkazu is our friend’s favourite place for AYCE sushi. He told us about it a long time ago, but it took us a while to want AYCE sushi, and a while to make it out to this area. Ninkazu is also owned by the same group that owns Tomakazu on Broadway. We went on a Friday night and it was very busy and packed with people waiting for the late night menu. They weren’t very organized at the front as people were putting their names down, so we were placed lower on the list and had to wait until past 10pm to be seated.
At first we were given one order sheet, and we were really impressed by the choices, turns out we weren’t given the late night list, and our menu is definitely smaller.. pretty much half the size actually as one was two pages, and the cheaper one just one page.
The three of us obviously ordered a bunch of food. As for the meat and vegetarian dishes, the ones that stood out for me were the BBQ Chicken Wings, Chicken Teriyaki, Agedashi Tofu, and the Yakitori. The miso soup was pretty weak, and the short ribs were a bit on the chewy side, and were very fatty. Good flavour though.
The sashimi was really good, but cut really small.
In the end, I thought it was better than Richmond Sushi, but my friends were split.
