I happened to pass by this neighbourhood at dinner time, so, feeling hungry, I went in. First bad sign -- on a Friday evening, the place was almost empty. However, seeing that the servers and the people behind the counter were all Japanese, I figured that the food should be authentic, and I was really craving for Japanese food this day, so I decided to give this place a try. Bad call. Next bad sign -- the interior was unreasonably hot. There were air-con outlets in the ceiling, but apparently neither the air-con nor any ventilation was on. Then I looked at the menu, and the prices were very high. Although the decor of the place was decent, it wasn't great enough to automatically indicate a fine dining place that would justify such prices. I really should have walked out at this point, but stupidity got the better of me, and I ordered. Even though the place was mostly empty, the first dish took 20 minutes to arrive. It was just robata black cod, something that other Japanese restaurants could whip up in less than 10 minutes. Worse still, I had ordered an appetizer, and it was no where to be seen. Well, with Japanese food, it really doesn't matter that much which dish comes first, so I ate the black cod. The fish was cooked very well, with fine texture, but the taste was bland. Then, before the next dish came, the waitress brought the bill and the slice of melon (a complimentary fruit that goes with all the bills here). I had to remind her that I had ordered 2 other dishes that had not arrived. She apologized and took the bill away. Then, another 10-minute wait, and the other 'main course', Hamachi Kama, came. Still no sign of the appetizer I had ordered. This was, by now, 35 minutes after I placed my order (including 5 minutes to eat the black cod). This Hamachi Kama was nothing fancy, and it certainly should not have taken this long. This dish was OK, other than that the skin was almost completely burned. After that, the waitress brought the bill and melon again. Gosh! They couldn't even manage the order of food for one table, when the restaurant was almost empty!! Another 5 minutes, and finally, the crab cake appetizer arrived. Crab cake?? It sure looked like crab cake from the outside, but it didn't taste like it. Other than the deep fried "skin" on the outside, the stuff inside was a whitish custard-like matter that basically had no flavour at all. I have never seen crab cakes (whether made with real or imitation crab) with this kind of texture, appearance, or taste. All of this came to $36. Way overpriced. I have not experience such poor value for money for a long, long time, so long I can't even remember. Don't go to this place.
