All you can eat sushi is as common as Starbucks in Las Vegas. But what sets Hikari apart from other all you can eat sushi places is that it truly is all you can eat sushi. This includes sashimi, no limit on the more pricier sushi items like uni and amaebi, and no time limit unlike other all you can eat sushi bars.
However, the quality of the sushi isn’t as good as other all you can eat sushi bars, but still decent.
- Yellowtail Sashimi - Depending on which sushi chef cuts your sashimi, you can get anything from some nice cuts of yellowtail to pieces that looked like its been chewed up by a dog and plopped onto your plate. They do have the nice distinctive yellowtail taste.
- Uni - This has a nice golden creamy yellow consistency. The only bad thing about this is they don’t properly remove the blood vessel. While this doesn’t really affect the taste, its distracting to the eyes.
- Unagi – The eel is nicely grilled and has a great taste to it . The nigri has a fairly big rice ball relative to the size of the eel. Stick to sashimi and ask for some sushi rice on the side.
- Amaebi – The sweet shrimp is absolutely disgusting. Just avoid it. You don’t get the shrimp heads like the other places.
- Oysters - Drenched in a ponzu sauce, topped with green onions. The oysters are barely edible and don’t have the fresh raw oyster taste.
- Baked Green Mussels - These were good. The mussels went well with the creamy cheese and green onions.
- Hamachi Kama - The yellowtail collar was cooked nicely and very juicey. This is one of the most underrated parts of the fish, but also one of the juiciest parts of the fish.
- Shrimp Tempura - The stuff you get in the frozen food aisle is better. If you were eating this with your eyes closed, you would have no idea this was shrimp tempura.
- Soft Shell Crab – The crab was really hard and lukewarm. They should consider renaming this dish to Hard Shell Crab.
They also have the standard rolls you find at sushi bars like California, Philadelphia, and Dragon roll. The rolls here are pretty boring and not as creative as some other sushi bars.
Service here is really quick, they get what you need and clear empty plates quickly. One of the fastest sushi bars in town. If you sit at the sushi bar, consider giving your orders to the different sushi chef. It seems like some of the sushi chefs give you much better cuts of fish than other chefs.
At $29 per person and even less for pretty ladies after 11PM (yes, this is really what the sign says) this is a couple of bucks more than all the other all you can eat sushi places in town. The all you can eat sashimi really makes this place special. If you’re not a sashimi fan, consider other sushi bars for better quality sushi.
