2 Restaurants that always seem to be empty

O Sushi House at 403 University Ave.
 It is a large space and one never sees more than two or three customers. Use to be the site of Taxi's Hamburgers.
Round Table Pizza at 263 University
There are a lot of pizza places and Italian restaurants that serve pizza on and near University Avenue. They all seem to be popular, busy, and full of customers except this place.
