We drove by this place yesterday and saw the banner. Japanese & Korean AYCE for $21. We thought we would give this place a try. Our expectations were very low...after all, most japanese/korean AYCE places are not good.
We walked in and noticed that the ambience and decor were okay. We then sat down and looked at the menu...it was the AYCE. $19.99 for weekday dinner and $20.99 for weekend dinner. Yes, selection was limited. We ordered a couple of the special rolls, the cones, motoyakis, and the korean bbq. The selection for the korean BBQ was only beef, chicken, pork, and beef ribs.
Then the food came...we were shocked. It was actually good. Unlike other AYCE places, the sushi rolls were of good quality. Not the best but definitely better than other AYCE places such as shabu sen or richmond sushi. The rice was very thin on the outside and the roll actually contained meat. I recommend the red dragon roll, very delicious. It's dynamite roll with small pieces of tuna on top and then dressed with mayonaisse and unagi sauce.
Then the Korean BBQ arrive. Just like the previous reviewer said, it's different. It's sort of soup based but the soup will actually reduce into a sauce and it's incredible. i recommend ordering the beef. The beef ribs arrived already cooked and they're good too but they limit the order to two per person.
The motoyaki is also quite good. You can choose between oyster, mussel, or fish. They only give small portions...half a mussel per order but it's AYCE so you can order as many as you want. It's very well done...I kind of like it...not the typical oyster motoyaki but it's different in a good way.
They also have tempura which is pretty good. The down side is, the prawn tempura is only available with the vegetable combo. So you get one prawn tempura combined with yam, onion and carrot tempura. If they can change this and let you order the prawn tempura only, then this place will be super.
So, not a crazy selection of food but pretty good quality for AYCE. Service is pretty good. They have a bell switch on every booth and if you need to call the waiter, they are only a push of a button away.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with this place and I'm kinda glad I gave it a try. Will definitely come with friends...Keep it up IL UK JO...funny name but good food.
