Worst service ever!!!!!!!

We had a party of 3. We arrived and orderd sushi and waited over an hour and a half. After getting fed up with receiving bits and pieces here we aked for our waitress who never returned and she said there was no food in the que therefore we were waiting for nothing. We had to leave, we did not have all day to wait for horrible food. We went to leave and told the owner we were not paying full price because we did not eat all we could due to horrible service and she freaked out started yelling in Chinese and called the police. I recommended to her that we pay ala cart for the items we did it because I was not willing to pay over $40 for a few orders of basic sushi. She said no and we waited for the police as she continued to yell and make a huge scene. This all happened because we are all Brock students. THEY PREJUDICE AGAINST BROCK STUDENTS!!!!! WORST RESTAURANT EVER!!!!NEVER GO HERE!!!!!!plua the atmosphere is disgusting. It was philthy and their fish aquarium was filled with mold and fish filth.

Go for the sushi, stay for the hot food!

Real Sushi offers similar items as the other two all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants downtown. They are competent with their sushi, but we go there when we want really good "kitchen" (hot) food. The strip loin in garlic sauce is wonderful! Eel pancakes (once per table) are yummy. The grilled "breathing" eggplant is funky to look at and very tasty. Melts in your mouth. It's one of the few places I've ever seen beef sashimi. Service is decent. Only issue I've had is unripe mango in mango and salmon rolls. If it's not ripe, don't serve it! We often go as a couple or with another couple, and usually have a good time.

Best all-you-can-eat sushi in St. Catharines
May 26, 2014

I have been too all the sushi restaurants in downtown St. Catharines now, and have finally found my favourite! The service is exceptional and their ordering system is incredibly efficient. Each table is given an ipad with the menu, allowing customers to easily add or remove items with a click of the picture, leaving little room for error. The quality... more

What a great remodel
April 10, 2014

My husband and I are more inclined to stray from all-you-can eat sushi joints, Real Sushi (now called Seasons Sushi), is the only place that we usually go to due to the fact of having so many bad experiences elsewhere. The restaurant has been closed for a few months and recently reopened under a new look and a new name.... more

Glass in food
December 14, 2013

My daughter and her friend went here in September and my daughter had a piece of glass in her sushi. Never on e did they ask her how she was or even cared. They gave her $3.00 off her meal. I called the next day and at that point when I asked for a manager I was told there wasn't... more

Not sure why I keep coming back
November 04, 2013

I've probably been here at least 10 times since first year university, and now about to graduate. I mean it's decent and there is a wide variety of selection for dinner. It's reasonably priced and they do bring your orders out at a decent rate. Like other reviews, there has been times where the sushi tastes bland. It's hit or miss.

Ok sushi place
July 09, 2013

Rough interior, and not too clean. Window frames were dirty and dusty.
Okay priced, 13.99$ for all you can eat sushi/lunch hour.
Would not eat here again, sushi was so/so –not too great.
Spicy salmon was filled with bread crumbs? So it tasted like, and the sushi’s weren’t made fresh.
Reheated once ordered, and served.
Service was great and fast... more

My boyfriend and I have heard great reviews about this location. However our experience was disappointing. After being barely greeted, our server barely said hello and was not very helpful with the menu options. She was extremely rude to both of us and did not seem happy to be there. The food was delicious but the service was unsatisfactory. Very disappointed and most likely will not return.

Pretty Good
March 08, 2013

I was expecting something great based on other reviews here.
The interior is rough...to say the least...sushi was ok- good for an all you can eat place. Some of their satays were also good.

Don't be scared of the venue! Good value
March 04, 2013

Let's get this out of the way at the start.....If you're looking for sushi, I mean variety, fresh, high end sushi, then this is not the place to start the search. If you are looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet with fantastic variety that gets delivered to your table (that has a few sushi options available) for a really low price,... more

First choice for a sushi lunch or dinner
February 28, 2013

Last time I was in, I had lunch with a girlfriend from out of town. We are both familiar with the place as the food and service are ideal for any sushi fan. It was nothing out of the ordinary to us, polite servers, fresh tasting food, and hot tea to warm my bones. The ladies bathroom was clean, which... more

Real Sushi was Very Good
January 22, 2013

This restaurant is great. The Sushi is made to order rather than a buffet style. They do have many different types of sushi. The service was fast! The only reason I didn't give 5 rating because they do not have Ikura (Fish roe) or Uni (sea urchin). Will be back when I come again for a visit!!

Really nice interior compared to exterior! Real sushi has a wide selection for lunch! Sometimes my miso soup was luke warm but other than that, no complaints! Food comes out quickly and delicious and service is pretty good!

Real sushi is my favourite, and pretty much the only sushi restaurant that I go to. The lunch buffet is only $12.99 and more recently they added many of the dinner menu favourite items to it more as well! Dinner is $22.99, with a great selection of tempura, soups and salads, kitchen fried dishes and noodles, sushi, sashami, niguri, maki, and hand rolls. Several flavours of ice cream, mango... more

Although parts of our orders are always missing, the food is great and the price for lunch makes up for it. We always order more than we can handle as some food will always be forgotten.

To my suprise the lunch menu had a very wide selection. even some rolls there are unavailable at other resturants untill dinner. the food was very good and the service was very fast. they also... more

Always miss some of our orders
June 01, 2012

I've been to a lot of all you can eat sushi restaurants and yes most of them always miss our orders but Real Sushi is notorious for this!!! I have no problem with their food. They have a lot of varieties, especially on their lunch menus as most ayce restaurants have limited choices during lunch. There are times when their... more

Great place! Yum!
September 24, 2011

The bf and I took a trip up to St Catherines and had read about this place in Artvoice. Outside looked a wee bit sketchy, but people kept going in so we decided to give it a try. It was packed with people which is always a good sign, and the interior looked a lot nicer than outside. Wow- am I glad we did! I enjoyed many of the vegetarian options including the crunchy tempura and several rolls... more

July 10, 2011

Fast service. Great chioce of food. Well prepared.
Nice inside. One entrance is off the side street and the other off the main street which actually is also the door to a skectchy looking hotel. Do not be fooled the resaraunt is very nice. Free parking just across the road.

Great sushi experience
June 30, 2011

We used to go to Real Sushi all the time until East opened. At that time, it was a good sushi bar, all you can eat, but consistently predictable and boring. But the food was properly prepared and served. Since then, they seem to have spruced up the place and there is something new and better about the sushi. The... more

All you can eat, MY favorite sushi place ever
October 10, 2010

I never liked sushi before until I came to this place. This place has the best price for sushi. I lived in Buffalo for awhile and I would drive to St. Catherines (about 45 min - 1 hour drive + crossing the border) at least once a month just to get dinner at this place. The last time I was... more
