Howdy all,
I'm a sushi nut and I'm looking or advice on cheap sushi in boston.
I'd love to find an all you can eat or something like it.

I remember ~5 years ago living in NYC for a summer with my brother and going ever Wednesday to this amazing all you can eat sushi place around 16th and 3rd; it was $17.95 and if you didn't finish everything you ordered, they charged you extra for it.
I can't tell you how many times my brother(6' 200lbs) would sit there in amazement watching me(5' 7" 135lbs) get kicked out of the place for still eating past the 2 hour time limit(meanwhile at non-sushi rests. I don't even bother with appetizers because I get full on small entrees alone).

So, that's the type of place I'm looking for. Cheap sushi and lots of it.

I've tried bluefin, and the quality just isn't good enough to keep me going back, except in sushi emergencies. And yes, I order and finish their large sushi platter(45 pieces for 32 I think)

I like Mr. Sushi, but the service is just so awful(we once had a friend who had to leave 1.5 hours after we sat down for a movie, she sill hadn't received her beer. we told the manager 2 hours later that we were walking out and never coming back, and they reluctantly gave us 10% of our meal if we would stay).

I've done suishanay(sp?) in Chinatown, but our meal here for 3 was $150 including tip(and only ~$30 in drinks), so that didn't cut it.

so, my question is,
can you guys help me fill my sushi void wihout breaking my bank?

does Tokyo Rest in Alewife have a sushi buffet? If so, how's the quality?

is Shino Express Sushi really dollar sushi, or is it normal priced?

Thanks for any suggestions
