Brought our two God sons for Sunday lunch a few weeks back. It seems they have frequented the place more often then we were, as they steadily choose what they want to eat.
The kids ordered: Child Ramen Set and Child Udon Set. For $9.80, this is actually value for money. Each set consist of Tempura & salad bowl, Ramen or Oyakudon, Jelly pudding, soft drinks / Orange Juice and of course free toys. How it taste, I am not sure, but they seem to enjoy their food without bothering the adults, until they start playing with the toys from the kids set.
For the adults, we ordered:
Gyu Suji Don Set – Zaru Soba, Gyu Suji Curry Don, Sushi Moriawase
Sashimi 3 kinds – Salmon, Tuna and Yellowtail
Amaebi – Fresh raw sweet prawn
Other than the quantity or the value of the set meal, there is nothing much to rave about in the quality of their food. In picture, the Hokkai Salad suppose to be sliced assorted raw fish, however the presented salad was more of chopped leftover raw fish, with brownish lettuce. Look we know that this dish suppose to you what left of the sashimi, but lets be a little more discreet and make it look presentable.
The sashimi are average, and each slices are actually very small. The Amaebi looks pale and smelly, we actually send it back to the kitchen and they waive this from the bill.
Atmosphere: You will feel quite welcome as soon as you enter the restaurant. The waiters will greet with you with the traditional Japanese greeting. The décor are quite Zen where they have some section that you can see on the tatami. Services: Excellent. Can be consider fine dining standard.
Overall: I have visited this Waraku many times before and it seems to be very crowded and have a good standard food. It is unfortunate that during my last visit on a Sunday lunch, the food standard has drop tremendously. I write this review with hope that the management will look into the food quality and improve as they already have a service standard in place.
