Little slivers of medium quality meats, salad where you can count the number of veg leaves, tomatoes that should be the "peach tasting type" instead of local tomatoes all add to an overpriced meal.
Food: Our hosts ordered a mix of meats from the high end wagyu to fillet, cheek meat, and chicken. They all came in very small portions, probably 2 plates for one pax, but we were 5 pax. That is the usual Jap serving for BBQ meats. Meats were tasty but not exceptionially so. I was disappointed at the wagyu beef, expecting a fuller, fat taste but it did not come through even though I undercooked it a little. The pork strips were OK, but were they kurobota?? The reason why I'm so particular is that I looked at the prices, and realised that they were Jap prices (in Japan !)
Value: Poor value
Service: Good service but the hosts could smile a bit more to make it more plesant.
Ambience: Nice old builing used to house the Anchor brewery staff.
