I chanced upon B@Rochester while looking for a place for a nice Friday evening dinner. The setting was beautiful - think of it as a bangalow house with a sushi counter and classy seatings both inside and outside.The food, I would clsasify as Japanese fusion. At a recent visit, I started with the Boston Lobster Bisque ($18). I felt that the bisque lacked the strong prawn shell flavours that I am used to.
I also tried the Nigri Sushi 8 Pieces ($30). Consisting of yellow tail, tuna, salmon and swordfish, the fish, particularly the tuna, was not very fresh and the rice was too sticky and wet.
I also tried the Pitan Tofu ($12). For this dish, I felt that too much tofu was used and in a dish which the plainess of the tofu was stronger than the century egg.From the main courses I tried the Angus Beef Okonomiyaki ($26) which done medium. Came as expected - meaty with a nice strong beefy after taste.
The other main course I had was the Seafood Tagliolini ($20). I found the sauce to be very thick and salty, even before adding the prawn roe to the mix.
As I was quite full after the main courses, I skipped desserts. Overall though, I found the food to be a bit of a let down. Service though is really good. The manager was really friendly and helpful and so were the staff, although this by itself is not a sufficient reason enough for me to return to the restaurant
