August 8 was originally established in 2008 where its first location opened in downtown Hamilton. As a new concept of dining, it was recognized as the first restaurant of its kind in the area to bring the finest aspects of both Cantonese-style dim sum and Japanese cuisine. The name “August” represented a new restaurant concept for its time and expressed the future vision of the company and the “8” next to August was simply the brand logo. It is a reinterpretation of “August” in Chinese characters. During the restaurant’s booming popularity, many customers would refer to “August” as “August 8” and many years later, that name would transform a once small restaurant into the brand it is today. The heritage of August 8 truly lies in its customers’ loyalty.

“Polite and attentive staff. Very welcoming. It was our first time to visit the restaurant since the reopening. Good food and rather quick service.
Menu has variety of items to choose from as all you can eat style. Food comes to the table. There is a time limit of one hour and fifteen minutes on how long you can stay once the food arrives. It’s understandable given the capacity limitations everyone is subject to.
We enjoyed the experience.” – AE
