For sushi/sashimi lovers, Sushi Hachi is one of the best in town. Everything is so fresh and melts in your mouth. Prices are very reasonable, too. There aren't many tables so reservations are a must, and sometimes when I phone to make a reservation even a day or two in advance, they are already booked.
The chef and waitress (husband and wife) are both very friendly and humble people. There is only one server, so service isn't always fast, but I've never had to wait too long.
I have often inquired and ordered items not on the menu with success. Other than sushi/sashimi they have Oden (very good) but that's about it.
I would guess I've gone 15 times and never had a bad experience. Will definitely return.

For someone who wants to fill their belly at an affordable AYCE price, it's okay (especially lunch time is inexpensive). But the taste of the food is poor compared to most other Japanese restaurants. I tried 3 times, and I don't think I can bring myself to go back.
Incidentally, one reviewer said "Come on people, at least get the name right.". But the name IS correct (Kisha Poppo). Kisha means steam train, and Poppo represents the sound of the train (in Japanese language).

I've gone to La Tandoor 8 or 9 times but will never go again. I gave up. The manager/server (one person) has a consistently poor attitude and the service is usually slow. Unlike many of the reviews on here, I actually liked the food (though I agree it is expensive) but I decided to stop giving them any more money.
I read other reviews on here and found myself remembering the same problems. For example, waiting forever for him to come bring us our bill. Giving us attitude about using an Entertainment Book coupon (which I only used once out of those several visits). Feeling like it was a daycare, because their kids ran around the restaurant the entire time we were eating (cute at first, greatly annoying by the end).
Every time I went, the restaurant was not busy. I went for lunches, dinners, and tried their buffet. I don't know how they stay in business, or why.
