just a bad service of the day.....

Went with friend for dinner last night and ordered our takes. I ordered fried rice and the 3 layer pork. They served me the latter but my fried rice did not arrive even though my friend had completed his meal. Well of course I cancelled my order and what annoyed me most was that there was not a single word of apology. Sigh!

Cheap and good

Nowadays, I either go to Shinji or Shabu Shabu Gen for the unbelievably sublime, though expensive gastronomic feast or I can get better and cheaper food than those chain restaurants (with Rakuichi as exception) right in dingy location of Cuppage Plaza. Besides Kaiho and Shinjuku, another good find is Izakaya Nijumaru which offers a variety of classic, common Japanese food.

The set meals are very value for money given the quantity of the food and the fresh ingredients used. The pickles are well done and the buta katsu is crispy and flavourful, having none of that unpleasant smell of overused oil. The ambience is simple yet having a strong Japanese influence. If the service crew speaks in Japanese, it will feel as though one gets transported to a street in Japan.

Service is quite okay, though I always visit on Saturday afternoons when it was not crowded, so it may differs from the standard at night. One of my top choices for some down to earth good Japanese food.

Absolutely disappointed with the services rendered

When I reach the restaurant, was informed that that there are no rice left ... then they told us to sit at the counter table and if there were other tables available they would change the table ... but this auntie who serve us instead of explaining clearly to ours enquiry on whether the set can be served without rice and replaced with noodles (since they say dun have rice but got noodles) she was complaining to another staff about us (her customers) right besides us somemore ... after change of tables and finally manage to place our orders despite the poor explaination given ... ordered a somen and a tenzaru soba ... then she came back to the table again and ask confirm only 2 orders the other person not ordering and told us that never order also need to pay charges for the tea ... my friend replied he haven drink the tea yet ... but before we could react she just took that cup of tea and walk off ... is not like we cannot pay for the tea ... seriously ... what kind of service is this ... then we ask another staff so that we can speak to the supervisor abt it ... we explained to her but she say that aunties are like that one ... and she will tell the in charge abt it ... but dunno what happen that auntie knew abt it and when she serve us the food the sauce spilled on the tray ... what kind of attitude are u showing to ur customers ... and she ask another staff so loudly that everyone in the shop can hear her about when did they started the charges whether eating or not eating the charges applies ... so pissed off ... we commented to another staff and explain to her ... thou she says she understand ... it seems that they keep on having the idea that we are unhappy because of the charges ... for goodness sake ... we are so unhappy is because of the attitude of the staffs !!! Seriously ... the food is not say very fantastic and the service rendered is lousy ... on top of it ... it is a japanese restaurant somemore ... not worth it to go there and eat ... there are so many japanese restaurants out there that are better ... dun waste your money ...
