This is my what I wrote about it last year in this thread http://www.chowhound.com/topics/177822:
The all you can eat sushi at Sushi Taro was a 2 hour wait, but soooooo worth it, even in the cold. They had the whole long sushi bar set up as a buffet with chefs making sushi behind it. At the beginning, there was a dish of small size inside out rolls. You could also ask for the spider rolls they had behind the counter, and they'd give you three. They also had spicy tuna rolls back there. They had a small tray of hand rolls which they replenished frequently, and they were *delicious*. Then there were lots of trays of nigiri, mostly tuna, salmon, yellowtail, eel, cooked shrimp, some mackerel. There was one sushi chef who was doling out scallop nigiri with a hefty dollop of wasabi, and he had a tray of squid as well. I saw people with tamago, but didn't see where they got it.
Then there was the toro and uni station. They told you to only take one piece of toro and uni at a time, but you could go back up there as many times as you wanted. Yes, you read me right. All the toro you can eat. Heaven.
Then there was all the cooked food, which included gyoza, shumai, yakitori, ika salad, some thing which I don't know the name of but was like a fried ball of something with crispy stuff on the outside, tempura, etc. There was udon, and a big platter of fruit and brownies for dessert. Oh, and green tea and water.
Next year, I'm going to get there much earlier, since waiting was a pain in the butt, and the line was just as long when we left as when we got there. It seemed to be a steady state, so I plan on getting there to be one of the first seated.
But, at $35, this was really a fantastic deal.
Beverages other than water and green tea were on a cash basis, btw.
