I am so hooked on this place that I'd frequent it too much, so much that I'd have to give it a break before I start going the rounds again for lunch, snack and dinner, hehe. Let me list what I like so much about this place:-
1. Pricing -- what more can you ask if you can get a toro sushi for $1.50 a piece, a decent meal for less than $10?
2. Sushi -- they put up on the wall big photos of all the sushi available on their menu. It's a large assortment and a delight to the eye. The sushi may not compete with the much pricier sushi places out there or as creative, but the price is competitive and the quality is always very good -- fresh and delicious....and, most important of all, just the right temperature!
3. Fried dishes -- highly recommended, all of them, heh! Prawn tempura, cream croquette, spring rolls, chicken karage, pork/chicken katsu....the list is long.
4. Chef's special -- Spicy tuna is one of my favourite dishes. Give it a try!
5. Drinks -- you can find an array of drinks from Japan in their cooler, which is a great delight, though this will add a few dollars more to your meal.
6. Snacks -- they sell all sorts of Pokka *laugh*
7. Service -- they're all Japanese, from what I can gather. This woman with a happy smiling face is another reason why I'd come back for more, heh.
8. Decor -- very simple and casual, typical of such a place in Japan. The TV is showing everything from Japan. The owner obviously is a big fan of hockey, putting up a big flag in support of the Canucks. There's a big world atlas along with world flags.
The only thing that concerns me is their apparent need for more helpers. Still, I don't see a huge deterioration in the food and service so far.
