We had the in-laws in town and wanted to go to Kadoya, but we had spent the day on Commercial Drive and were hot and tired and not wanting to drive downtown and wrestle with traffic and parking.
We had been told that someone connected to Kadoya had opened up shop with similar rolls on Commercial, so when we walked by we figured we would give it a try.
We had a late lunch, but despite the time most tables were full. It was a weekend and a nice sunny day, so the Drive was packed.
Our service was kinda not great, but nothing terrible or tragic to report. The decor is rather poor, despite it being such a new place, but certainly not bad.
I can see the place looking shabby in a few more months, as it seems to not be getting much cleaning.
As for the food.... the most important part to me....it was great. The spicy tuna roll was fabulous and even better then Kadoya's, as it had cucumber added into the already great combination. We had several of the special rolls and they were all great as well.
I was almost upset not being able to try more food off the menu, as they had some fabulous combo's with great prices.
I intend to return, so I will re-review if my opinion changes. I'm looking forward to trying more of their menu items.
I give the special rolls two big phattass thumbs up!
