Considering that the restaurant was an All-You-Can-Eat-Sushi style (AYCE) restaurant, the restaurant itself was surprisingly clean and nicely decorated. The staff were present - they weren't overly friendly or welcoming, but were able to answer questions and alert to take orders. The overall quality of the sushi was standard AYCE quality - the food was fresh, but not as fresh as Mi-Ne Sushi or Inatei (both of which have just-came-out-of-the-sea quality of freshness, though that caliber of freshness is not expected at AYCE). The food was also plated neatly/nicely considering the fact that Naruto is AYCE. The standout menu item during lunch was the AK47 roll - for its name. However, the AK47 roll was also surprisingly good - something that you would expect from an a la carte sushi restaurant's maki menu. The AYCE lunch menu had a wide variety of rolls and sushi, but it was disappointing that they did not offer sashimi during their lunch hours for individuals who do not prefer rice (though I suspect that the dinner menu has sashimi). The lunch AYCE experience at Naurto was great and served the purpose I went there for: To catch up and overfill my stomach with my high school friends, while maintaining the shape of my wallet ($13.99 + tax per person).
