OK, I was here last year, and finally gave in to go with my co-workers to this restaurant for the 2nd time. Maybe it'll taste better.. Was I wrong. I should of stayed away.
3 of us showed up for a 1:30 pm lunch weekday and figured to have a few rolls / lunch special for the day. As soon as we came in, the sushi guy seems pretty crammed into his preparation area with the server hanging around him. Ok, he's being watched. That's fine. The miso was fine, but the rolls.. I'm not sure who porportioned the water in the rice, it sure was wet tasting. Every roll we had the rolls had too much water in it's rice preparation. Couldn't eat it. the teriyaki chicken hotplate, was alright, chicken was on the well done side, so was a little chewy. almost had to eat the chicken skin to keep it moist.
The service was Ok. although the restaurant was quiet around that time, surprisingly a little more attention would of been nice. IE: would u like more tea? or any other order?. We had a buddy join us as the 4th member just to hang out but not order anything. Was there an interesting look on the lady's face when she was told he wasn't going to order anything. Sheesh.. thanks for the gesture.
It's a typical Non-japanese runned restaurant and the food reflects it. Very unfortunate as there aren't that many good japanese restaurants around.
Would I recommend my friends to come here?. Not a chance. I gave this restaurant a 2nd chance in a year and figured it has changed my impression from the last experience.. Fine, they made money off of me, but they lost my further visits..
I'm all happy now.. why?. There's a great restaurant 2 doors over that just re-opened and went from a small eat-in/ take out to a full blown restaurant. nao Sushi.. Food is fast, fresh and very nice. Service and people are great. When you surrounded my japanese patrons, you know you are in a good restaurant.. you will not regret.
Dai sushi sounds like it should....
