I was looking forward to go to this place with a friend but i was disapointed with how it turned out. It was my first AYCE and i was confused with what to do. When i asked for help she explained to me and i had trouble understanding her accent.(no fault on her par im sure) When the order came the waitress brough it out on one plate( mine and my friends) so i was extreamly confused. I thought she had put somthing on the plate that i had not ordered so when i asked she went and got the order form and explained to me, quite mad, about the codes. Everything we ordered was on the plate and i appoligized. She still seemed mad though.After that even though i was confused i didnt want to ask any more questions. I just wanted to eat and get out.

The sushi isnt the best i have had,service was slow and people who got there after us had food before us.There was alot of mayo in the californa rolls and it was really gross.

I dont think i will be going here again.

the defunct Barolo buffet in barrhaven is now being replaced by a massive location for a new 1000 sushi islands opening any day now. perfect location beside barrhaven cineplex and the booming west end real estate. AYCA sushi and a zillion other japanese delectables to get your mercury ON!!!!

nb: i heart mackerel for jacking up my omega-3's for superior health benefits.

Tried this place for the first time last week. Unbeknownst to us, the resto is already celebrating its 2nd anniversary. For the month of August, soft drinks are free and patrons received 10% off their bill.

We ate quite a bit, not nearly as much as I would have liked though. The taste and quality of this AYCE place far surpasses that of Sushi Kan. Despite it being an AYCE, I would definitely go back.

Went for lunch yesterday. Very satisfing. Food was quick enough, all our orders came without any problems and everyone left pretty happy (in and out in just over an hour). Not bad for the price. Not amazing sushi, but for AYCE pretty good value.

It's AYCE sushi... in Ottawa... we should temper our expectations.

2009 Apr 28
Went for dinner tonight. Arrived at 5 pm, service was quick. I was hungry and did not expect a lot from AYCE. But was surprised that sashimi was very fresh and shrimp tempura was very good. Overall very good price and good food. We will for sure visit again.

White tuna roll, pickled mushroom roll, pickled radish roll.

Rainbow roll, spicy crispy crab roll, shrimp tempura roll.
All very delicious!

I strongly believe that sushi should be in large pieces, not chopped up into tiny itty bitty pieces - this shows me that the fish is not good quality, so you're trying to hide it.

and the fried bits in the rolls?

Gross.

Not bad. The food came promptly and the tempura was quite yummy. I really liked their 1000 sushi islands specialty roll. It was pretty busy when I went there on a Wednesday night, but overall the service was okay. I would not recommend the white snapper sashimi, ours came out warm! =(
However, the seaweed salad was great...but the flying fish salad had a little too much mayo for my taste...

The best in Ottawa but abit far from downtown where I live, but totally worth the trip!

The nigiri was good for an AYCE. Nothing to complain about. We also ordered a seaweed nigiri and it was good as well. The spicy tuna nigiri wasn't that great. It was just mayonnaise, sriracha and a bunch of tempura flakes. I hardly noticed any presence of fish.

What isn't in the photograph was the sushi pizza. It was satisfactory (I love my sushi pizza.)

We had also ordered ice cream for dessert. I loved my green tea ice cream, and my friends loved their mango and red bean.

Overall, good experience, bang for your buck on lunch time. For AYCE sushi places, I recommend bringing a party of friends so you can sample different dishes.

Very fresh, crisp, and hot.
There was more batter than shrimp, but it was still really nice.

For people who like to know what they're actually eating this might be helpful.

Make sure you know your surf clam from your squid, because they generally don't. I've ordered surf clam several times to get squid on my plate, and vice versa. I've been here several times over the years and this hasn't changed. Surf clam pieces have one red, pointed end and the other end is white. Squid is white and squishy with ridges.

The crab is, of course, not real crab but surimi. Every restaurant does this, and I like surimi but I wish they would label things as they are.

Watch out for that white tuna, because it's not tuna. Going by the taste it's probably escolar, which has a way of giving some people the runs. It sure is delicious though.

Quality and size of the cuts varies with the day. I've had good stuff here and absolutely awful stuff here. Then again that's pretty much the same for every AYCE place I've been in Ottawa.

I have tried to like 1000 Island Sushi, but it is a no go! Sorry, not even a little bit good.If you want AYCE go to Sushi Kan.

I keep coming back to 1000 Sushi Islands b/c I LOVE their Mango Shrimp Tempura and Dynamite Rolls, but in the last 2 months I've been sick twice immediately after eating there. Other people have expressed the same experience to me before, but I attributed it to them overeating rather than the freshness of the ingredients. Sadly, I find myself personally confirming this after my meal yesterday.

I've never been to Hockey Sushi so I'll give them a shot next time (understanding they are under the same ownership), again because I find 1000 Island's rolls to be some of the best I've had in Ottawa, but for me the Carling location is now a no-go.

Fried dumplings.
Hot and crispy!

I have gone here several times and enjoyed it each time. Nice quality sushi. All you can eat specials with tempura, soup and other treats included. Try the little meat and onion rolls!
Reasonably good and fast service. Parking can be tricky though. One annoyance is they ONLY take credit cards or cash.
Be careful when you order as some items are single piece and others are 6 per order... which can have you wind up eating a LOT of the same items if you don't read carefully.

Salmon sushi pizza.
A bit greasy due to the mayonnaise, but still good.
