I have been to the Kino Cafe twice. Once a few months ago and again on New Year's Eve. The first time I went I went for drinks with friends and to see the amazing Flamenco dancers and musicians they have. I enjoyed the experience so much I went back for New Years for their dinner and entertainment. The food was ok...truthfully nothing special. most of the food items offered in our buffet dinner were bland and I'm assuming the chef doesn't really have any culinary training. However they did offer a nice antipasto plate, and the calamari was cooked perfectly, although it could have used some more flavor. Besides the food, go to the Kino Cafe for the entertainment. It is high-energy, beautiful music and dancing, with an incredible Spanish Guitar player, a singer with a rich and pitch-perfect voice, and most of all, beautiful and talented Flamenco dancers. Our service was friendly and prompt the entire night. My second experience was even better than the first, and I will absolutely be back.

Food Ok, but service really puts points against them

Sushi town has some good choices. Delicious Miso soup and tender flavorful gyoza; the tempura is also quite nice and a substantial portion. However it seems that when it comes to the simple traditional dishes, sushi town fails. The gomai is soggy and distasteful and the cuts of raw fish are often mushy, which unfortunately is a sign the fish is less than fresh. Also, the BC Roll has soggy salmon skin and tastes too fishy. The less traditional options that sushi town tries are often quite tasty. I like the Mango Dise roll which comes beautifully presented on a long skinny plate,. The roll is filled with the standard shredded imitation crab, but with a nice cube of mango nestled inside and piece of prawn resting on top of each piece, it is also drizzled with a lovely sunny yellow sauce, which I soon discovered was a mixture of mustard and mayonnaise...not fancy, but it looks quite beautiful and tastes really quite good. All in all...sushi town is a good option, but only if you know what to order...and only if you don't mind waiting a long time for any kind of service.
