i was greeted by a what looked like a fatigued waitress who sat our crew down in a booth and passed us that menu i have hated for so very long. the numbering system was awkward, the menu choices were slim, and prawn tempura required extra dough. if we ordered a lot, the chefs would only fill one plate or platter, yes i twice put 4 and 6 teriyaki chickens, each time they simply filled one tiny plate with
however many were supposed to fit on it. same goes with the rolls.
service was fairly ok, although they would never automatically give u another sheet after u had ran out, and it took forever to get their attention, especially from the booths. we were quick to finish our supermarket bought mango pudding and left with a modest tip.

strolling around in RPM when i came across peanuts, a busy little bubble tea joint on the second floor. i saw a number of people seated on the side tables enjoying their drinks and chatting about their busy lifestyles.
so i decided to give it a try. a nice selection of drinks and even included some pastries, which was nice. i ordered a classic taro milkT w/ pearls from a cheerful server and got a tasty delight for 3 dollars. thats right, 3 DOLLARS. the drink was a little on the sweet side but that was probably because they wanted their customers to have a relaxation moment when they try their drinks.
they even offer those stamp cards if u decide to become a regular there, and i would very much recommend it!

I have had the same experience as ButterBall, and kudos to you for posting that.
the waitresses were the most apathetic servers i had ever seen, they were always talking to one another in cantonese and mandarin so that everyone in the biulding could hear and the platters of sushi were almost thrown onto our table! it was nearly impossible to get their attention because they looked almost clueless, like untrained waitresses that only knew how to carry a pitcher of water.
besides the food being a bit sub-par to other AYCE joints, it was always a bit on the slow side when it arrived to our table. my crew would only eat here if we were dying to fill ourselves up but didn't feel like walking.
my favourite part had to be when we only paid then 10% tip (WHICH WAS DESERVING OF THEM), and a man who couldn't utter a single word of english came to our table and said that our tip wasn't 15%!!! i was completely outraged and even told a friend to dump soy sauce, wasabi and pieces of sushi into our tea cups and we left before the man could find us.
unless ur desperate to fill urself up, DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING HERE.
