I really wanted to like this place. We walked in just after 7 on a Thursday evening and it was surprisingly dead. Besides the dusty facade, the insides looked a little tired especially with all the bright light coming into the restaurant.
It took a little while to get service but finally we were able to order a big bottle of Sapporo and some food including tuna sashimi, spicy tuna cones, saba, tobiko with quails egg, gyoza and a bunch of other dishes.
I liked the way the spicy tuna cones were prepared. They had spicy sauce and chopped tuna in the cone (separately) so at least you could tell the tuna was fresh but too bad the seaweed was chewy. The saba was the best, very fresh and the rice was perfect. The gyoza came out with two or three pieces visibly burnt. We tried a couple and they tasted overboiled.
Finally when we got service about 20 minutes after finishing our food, we still had the gyoza left over. I pointed out the fact that they were burnt and inedible which was not well received by our server who huffed off with the remains of our dish.
When we finally got our bill, I was surprised that we had been in the restaurant for almost 2 hours considering it was mostly empty the whole time. With the awkward service, tired decor and mediorce food, probably won't be coming back anytime soon unless Restaurant Makeover decides to bless this restaurant with their magic touch.
