Went for dinner with another friend, didn't had any expectations. Passed by the restaurant many times, never got to try it out. It was a last minute decision, and we arrived at 8:30pm. They close at 9pm.
Food & Value:
Ordered their Chirashi and Toro sashimi for myself. My friend ordered avocado roll, vegetable tempura, chicken skewers and miso soup.
The sashimi plating was just average, or below average to some points. But they do have the standard wasabi, gari, and daikon shreds. Just the way they cut the fish and stacked them together didn't look to appetizing. Which doesn't help when I was starving already. The chirashi, in my opinion, wasn't worth the value. It only had two pieces of tako, tuna, salmon, tai, and one piece of ebi and tamago. When I think of chirashi, I think of scattered, and variety. Maybe some ikura and/or masago on the bottom wouldn't be too much to ask for?
Most of my friend's food were cooked, and they do look better than what I had. Their tempura was good, so was the chicken skewers, but the skewers only had 4 cubes of chicken breasts in total.
Also as I glanced around the menu, I noticed their nigiri sushis were on the pricey side. For that price, I would expect very good sushi, but since I didn't order any, I can't comment. However, from the way they cut the fish for the sashimi and chirashi, I don't expect the fish on the nigiri would be much different quality.
We were greeted as we walked in. The restaurant at that time only had another table. Our water was refilled half way through the meal. But our waitress never asked how our food was. They did, however, took the time to plate things down on the table instead of leaving it at the edge. Which I think for a restaurant in this area is quite rare. But it may also be due to the fact that they weren't so busy. One thing which bothered me though, was that they didn't take away our paper chopstick wrappers. They were on the table throughout the meal and sometimes underneath the plates.
A rather small restaurant, but nice decor and everything seems to be in good to perfect condition.
In general, I don't mind going back to this restaurant, however, it would be on my "last resort" list.
