I had lunch here today. It was my first time and was quite nervous to enter because I read in HGW's reviews that the service is super bad. However, it was acceptable to me, probably because I eat fast.
I ordered the Thursday set meal:
Potato Salad - A+, normally I don't like potato salad in other Japanese joints. This one actually tasted great! The chef neutralizes the smell of the potato, making it enjoyable for me.
Beef Teriyaki - A-, not fantastic but compared to other beef teriyakis I have eaten, this is nice to eat. The Teriyaki sauce was not too sweet. I was impressed.
Salmon Sashimi - B+, no big deal for me but overall pleasant to eat. The fish does not smell so it is a good sign.
Miso Soup - A, I believe this was homemade.
The chef also gave us a free slice of unagi, about two bites worth. I am not sure if this came with my set or my brother's Chirashi Don but it was a pleasant surprise. We were not treated too shabbily. The waitresses do have the tendency to take away the plates as soon as we are done with the dish but it didn't disturb me. The set meal is really worth the money too. I will definitely return to try their other dishes.
