Nice little secret place
Submitted Thursday, September 21, 2006 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

I like this place, it's one of the few small Japanese places that stand out to me, mainly because it's tucked away in a residential neighborhood and it gives a nice little experience for diners. The majority of the menu items are somewhat normal/standard, although I did come for the Mackarel/saba menu items, which aren't as common elsewhere. It's a bit of a popular place, and it is small so you may want to come at odd times.

Alas

Alas, I shouldve heeded the previous reviewers' warnings about this place. Being the stubborn consumer that I am, I decided to try "Diner", as I have a fondness for, well, diners. With a simple, yet original name like that, how could you go wrong? For starters, the service was awful. I know there are mixed reviews on this page when it comes to the service, but I got the "female" service that other reviewers have pointed out as not-so-satisfactory. Apparently, they were right. We waited for our food longer than other customers who came in, and were even extremely polite/patient about it. Yet the server/chef were unappologetic about the lack of promptness of our food being served, and were also relatively less-than-friendly (though not outrightly rude) to my party. The bucket of fried chicken was awesome though, but a bit of a disappointment as the "bucket" only contained 2 pcs of chicken and some leftover fried skin-bits. Oh, but what amazing skin-bits they were. The perogies on the other hand, were of tv-dinner quality. Try it if service isn't an integral part of your usual dining experience, or if you want some really good fried chicken!

Japanese food for dummies.

No, this does not imply that you should start here when trying to acquire a taste for Japanese food. This food literally is for dumb people. Why pay for (overpriced) sushi/food that is (at best) on par with food from other lesser-priced Japanese restaurants out there? The only thing cool about this restaurant is the conveyor belt, which, oftentimes, serves nothing more than water and the occasional plate of sushi. This type of Japanese restaurant is for, dare I say, Westerners.
