I used to eat here a few times over the years but had not been for the past year. We were a group of 6, celebrating Secretary's Week for our 2 administrators. I arrived the earliest, at 1115 am. I peeked into the door to ask them what time they were opening. This waitress gruffly said, "1130..come back later!" That should have given me an omen of things to come and we should have changed the venue for our lunch! I peeked in again a few minutes later to ask whether they had a table for 6 available. Rude waitress said, "YES...we are not open yet, come back 1130!" My God. It's as if you OWE them for eating here.
My friends were near so I decided to go in and get the table for 6. Rude waitress kept asking me, "Where are you friends? Walking? From where?" It's as if they didn't want to give me the table when the restaurant was practically empty for the next 45 minutes. I don't understand what the fuss was about. As if there was a queue of people waiting to come in and eat..but there was no one except for another table with a couple.
4 of my friends finally arrived 5 minutes after I sat down (one was still enroute). We ordered and the food came out. They served EVERYTHING together, including dessert--which belied the fact that this place has become a factory/production line of food. Read the other review here (the one who also rated this place terrible) and the reviewer said that the management had changed 6 months ago. So that's why.
The food was mediocre. There was nothing special about it. Definitely worse than when I last went here a year ago. Soonafter, our last friend finally arrived. The waitress then came and asked if she could just sit at the counter to eat, because she wanted us to vacate our table! UNBELIEVABLE. What were we supposed to do? Leave our friend--who was one of the secretaries we were honoring for this lunch--and let her eat alone? We said "No. This is a group lunch. It's a celebration." But rude waitress kept insisting.
Anyway, 2 of us had to go back to the office, so I told her, why don't you give us this table for 4 and let our friend eat. Rude waitress eventually agreed to that. Later, I heard from my friends who were left behind that they started to get our friend's food WHILE SHE WAS STILL EATING.
Seriously, the staff in this restaurant should be FIRED.
DON'T EAT HERE. That's all I would say. Not worth it. You'd get better food and service at fast food Japanese restaurants like Ichiban Boshi or Sakae Sushi.
