The idea of unlimited supply of Sushi rolling on the side of your table through a conveyor belt piqued my interest to try Sakae Sushi restaurant at Robinsons, Manila.
It's more practical to do eat all you can for 399 pesos and get all sushi in the red and purple colored plates. Sushi buffet comes with miso soup and hot or cold green tea.
But since I wasn't paying attention on the plate's color coding and only realized it later when I'm already full, I ended up getting mostly yellow plates.
The freebies; green tea and miso soup if you decide to eat all you can.
I just go by eye and didn't pay attention to the color of each plate when I pick the one's to eat. The color coding scheme of the plates is a good indicator which one to avoid and which one has more value. The taste of that one in the blue plate sucks. ;) .
If you are expecting good quality Japanese sushi here at Sakae Sushi, you might be disappointed. The rice portion (which is not as sticky as the usual Japanese rice) of the sushi is so big, it will fill you up easily. The soy sauce dip and the tempura dip are also lacking in taste. I guess it was watered down more to meet the volume they need. I was also reminded to avoid leftovers or I'll be charged the actual price.
However, considering the offered price, I'm not really expecting authentic Japanese fare. One thing I can assure you though, expect to be full after dining here.
