Vegas can never have too many all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants in my opinion. I love stuffing my face with all the sushi and rolls that I can muster. For $25.95, it’s totally worth it. After trying a bunch of items, I’d have to say that their nigiri is better than their rolls. The unagi was the highlight of the meal for me. With its crispy charred edges giving way to a mildly sweet tender and meaty body, this fresh water eel was the best I’ve had at any AYCE spot. Other solid options were the tuna, halibut, yellowtail and red snapper nigiri. On the flip side, I wasn’t crazy about the beef tataki nigiri because it was too rare and fattier than I would have liked.

The tuna naruto (tuna, salmon, white fish, and crab wrapped in cucumber) was full of flavor and small enough to devour in one bite per piece. I also tried the Hawaiian roll and Joe’s special roll but both had too much sauce, either masking the taste of the fish or rendering the rice mushy and causing the roll to fall apart.

Other items tried were the gyoza and chicken katsu. Both were satisfying.

Food came out unusually fast, so I’ll have to request them to pace it out more next time. Service was exceptional as they stopped by often to take additional orders, refilled water glasses, and inquired about our food.

With so many all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants in town it can be difficult to stand out.  Jjanga, even  though it’s new seems to have attracted a following and is poised to stick around with solid nigiri and a large variety of rolls in an atmosphere that’s both cool and inviting.
