Great japanese food but poor service
Submitted Sunday, May 17, 2009 - 7:15pm [Dine in]

I've visited this place three times now -- once during a quiet late night evening, and twice during lunch time.

First off, the good points:

a) excellent ambiance - they do their best to decorate the insides; nice Japanese style wooden food tables and have seperate booth areas for larger parties. they have nicely decorated trees with spring blossom that fit the decor well. even the tea pots and appetizer plates were high quality pottery and heavy cast iron pieces.

b) the japanese food quality was excellent. one of my favorites is the tempura battered california rolls. the lunch boxes are your typical japanese boxes, but are reasonably priced. they have alot of speciality rolls. considering what else is in the area, its one of the best japanese places.

Now for the negatives:

a) Service is horrible when they are busy or even semi-busy during lunch hours. I've witnessed people waiting at the front for 10 or more minutes while waitresses (older moms) walked past them. In one instance, I saw a couple seated at a table -- and 15 minutes later they walked out b/c they weren't even given menus or tea. It seems like they the waitress' get easily overwhelmed during busy or even semi-busy times. At first I thought it might have been an off day, but I came back several weeks later for lunch and saw pretty much the same story.

But if its quiet, they do a pretty good job.

If you're pressed for time though, its russian roulette to what kind of service you will get.

Its so so
Submitted Thursday, December 11, 2008 - 7:11pm [Dine in]

Driving down St. John's street we thought we'd give the place a try. Arrived around 6pm and the place was pretty quiet, probably only 3 other parties there.

We ordered the Beef Rib meals and their supposedly famous skewers -- chicken and beef.

The order came with little Korean appetizers that were ok. They asked us if we wanted it instead of just giving it like other restaurants. I guess they want to save on costs.

We've been to other Korean places and the little dishes that come with it are a lot better. This restaurant consisted of a little kimchee, some soup, and a small dish of some edame's. It was.. ok.

As for the main meal, it tasted decent and wasn't bad.

The overall price was quite expensive at the end of the evening.
And afterward they kinda forget about you, but it may be normal cause maybe its a hang out type of place.

Good Japanese 'hole in the wall' type place
Submitted Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 12:19pm [Dine in]

This is one of those hole in the wall type places that offers good Japanese food. The sumono salad is large, and the the serving sizes for our bento box b and sushi combo was quite generous compared to other Japanese places. Taste wise, I was not disappointed.

In terms of ambiance, it looks like the restaurant use to be a diner. Its a small cozy feeling, seating maybe 20 or so people at most. I came on a Friday evening at 7:30pm and it only had about 12 people in there.

There seems to be a lot of take out orders, and the clientele seemed to be more causal - jeans t-shirt kind of place.

Might not be a great place for a first date since there kinda have old chairs, and dirty chair pillows lying on top of the chairs... and you can see the garbage can from the eating area.

But it does have that 'home' messy feeling if you're after something more down to earth.

Overall, a good experience. I'd go there again if I were in Langley.
