Score is an average of 2 visits I made to the outlet.
My first visit was lunch on 4 Sep, 5 pax. I had the Sanshoku Don Set which was average. Items that our group liked were the Ika Kimuchi, beef inaniwa udon and the beer.
My second visit was dinner on 9 Sep, 2 pax. We entered outlet slightly before 9pm and waiter promptly informed us that last order is at 9:15pm. We placed order for 4 items before 9:15pm: regular premium sashimi moriawase $58, lobster maki $16.20, warm mixed salad $12.20 and yuzu tofu cheese cake $9.20.
Sashimi: other than the 1 oyster that was worth mentioning, the salmon belly and yellowtail were average, surf clam was tasteless (in fact, tasted like just defrosted), and tuna belly was horrible (the edges were not trimmed and instead of melting in your mouth, it was like chewing rubber).
The minute the lobster maki touched our table, one maki fell totally apart. One look at the maki, you lose all appetite. The sushi rice was mushy, like cheap sushi.
Next the warm mixed salad. Bunch of chopped chinese cabbage, 1-2 stalks asparagus, handful cherry tomatoes, half a small eggplant. all blanched in hot water. served with ponzu dressing.
Finale - the dessert that was served after we settled the bill for register close. This was the ugliest dessert I've ever been served. the sherbet had melted and slided to one side of the plate. the strawberry puree plating turn into a red mess due to the melted sherbet. one strawberry, at corner of plate, cheesecake on another side of plant. complete mess. Taste was average but for $9.20, you'd expect a decent presentation, no? And to top it off, as we were halfway through the dessert, a waitress walks by our table and says "we are closing in 5 min". You'd think she checked when the dessert was served before she came over.
I only took 1 picture of the ugliest dessert cos it was just horrible that the restaurant thinks it's ok to serve customers as it is. The total bill came up to $117.45. I'd be happier with a $2 cheeseburger.
