Like other all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants, Sushi Garden has one main menu that offers both cold and hot items. Dinner is priced at $24.99 (+$2 on weekends and holidays, when BBQ eel, surf clam, and the special rock roll are offered in addition to the weekday menu) or $15.99 for lunch (with the same $2 weekend surcharge). Initial orders are usually overambitious, and we ordered a monstrous amount of our collective favorite salmon sashimi, with a few pieces of white tuna, red snapper, and mackerel thrown in. We also decided to sample a few rolls including the fire and ice (deep fried white tuna, hot pepper, and spicy mayo), red dragon roll (deep fried shrimp, avocado, cucumber, and tobiko topped with salmon), spider roll (deep fried soft shell crab), and the special rock roll (salmon, avocado, and cream cheese, deep fried). Though I personally avoid cooked items at buffets as I find them much too filling, our friend Eat Cook Dream seemed to have a particular craving that night as he seemed to have made it his mission to try as many of the cooked items as he could.

Overall, I thought Sushi Garden was fairly disappointing and reminded me why I usually stay away from all-you-can-eat. The sashimi in particular was a let down, and the rolls were nothing special. If you have an extremely large appetite, I can understand making the trip to capitalize on the fairly extensive menu, but for anyone else I would recommend either paying the extra few dollars for Sumo Sumo's Sunday buffet, or simply spending the money on a higher quality non-all-you-can-eat sushi meal.
Top Pick of the Night: Rock Roll
