Ordered 3 sets for my family.
1 Was Chiraishi (Japanese rice with sashimi) - rather generous serving, sashimi is rather good
2 Was Salmon sashimi don with ramen - Ramen its pretty good from a non ramen specialist shop.
Set 1 and 2 was great.
3 was tonkatsu pork set meal... This one was really eye opening. They used long grain thai rice instead of japanese rice. Waiter claimed that its just not cooked well and its dry and entirely avoided the question when I said it wasn't japanese rice 3 times.(Oh well they are not in charge of the ingredients), coincidentally there was a japanese couple next to us, complained about the same thing too lol.
Watami is a rather decent japanese restaurant, so its VERY disappointing for them to be using thai rice. WHEN YOUR SET MEAL IS $25 The weakest link of the chain. Otherwise most of the food is great.
Just don't order non sashimi rice sets, you be fine.
