I was one of their earlier customers...
here's what was on their Shio Ramen..
Deep fried onions, green onions, Pork Cha Shiu, spinach, bamboo shoots and of course ramen noodles and soup!
I would write up for one of their noodles because it'll take forever to finish if i did their whole menu..
everything fit in nicely, soup tasted like it was from real pork and bones, not just the nasty msg and salt..
Pork was nice, tender, savory and portion was 2 big slices... (my favorite part!)
6months later... they have changed their menu a bit, there is no more limit of 20 bowls of Shio per day.. instead, we get unlimited.... thats a good sign!!! HOWEVER, with this type of change, they have gone cheap with the pork... they downsized it to 2 small pieces... which is like a size of a salty cracker... i was like WTF?
oh well... since they still taste the same.. i understand... it's business..
2months later...(today)..... WOAH!!!!!!! I'm not sure if the waitress heard it wrong or do they stop giving deep fried onions... i asked for no GREEN onions.. and she probably wrote down NO ONIONS... sigh
Not only that, but the soup tasted like water?!?!?! Why are you going cheap on soup??? Not only that, but the cracker-sized pork cha shiu has reduced to another half size.... so 2 Pork cha shiu's = 1 cracker!!!!
Like SERIOUSLY??? I have advertised your restaurant to my co-workers and this is what i get back in return?? I'm afraid this place may scare my co-workers away, thinking that i have bad taste in food!
I hope someone from their restaurant reads this.. because this is ridiculous!!!!!!!
Ambience is okay.. nothing special..
Service is fine.. they do ask if everything was ok or not.... although it wasnt okay, i didnt think it's cool to make a scene for people to watch during lunchtime.. while i complain about every aspect that they have changed..
I used to give them a 5/5 for the food.. but it just upsets me.... but i totally give a 1/5 for all the cheap downsizing.
In a business perspective, it may help you save money, but it wont help you SAVE CUSTOMERS... if rent is too expensive, it really is your problem to calculate everything before opening in DOWNTOWN.
I look for quality in foods... not crap...
