Best deal for Sushi (quality vs quantity) in OC? (either AYCE or a la carte)

So my gf just got a great job offer so I wanted to take her out tomorrow, Friday. She loves sushi, although more specifically rolls. I'm Japanese so I've introduced her to other forms, but she is just way into rolls of all kinds.

So can anyone recommend me the best deal for sushi in Orange County? Can be all you can eat or whatever. Groupon deal, coupon, who cares. Just looking to get the best bang for the buck.

Only AYCE I've been to is Joe's in Buena Park. Mediocre, wasn't gross, but wasn't amazing either.

I usually will make my own on weeks when Mitsuwa or other japanese markets have fresh fish or sales so I dont go out for sushi that often. When I do it's usually part of a meal at a restaurant, but I wanted to specifically take her to a Sushi bar.

One place I am thinking of is Mahe in Dana Point. Apparantly they have AYCE 5-6pm any day, mon/wed all night. This is contradicted by others saying only mon/wed is there AYCE. I'd have to call tomorrow to find out, them make a reservation via open table.

To be honest, I doubt she would eat $25 worth of sushi so I'm open to any suggestions.

Edit: forgot to mention that a couple of my friend's have been trying to get me to go to Makino. I think it's another buffet by the Todai guy. $26 a person, its new and so far people seem to like it a lot.
