I ate here as a party of 5 for lunch on a week day. The place was packed inside and out with the business crowd. Very little tourists. I saw the oath sheet to pay only what I felt the meal was worth.
I had the Tuna Tataki which was seared in an ultra spicy cajun spice with edamame, and a mango coulis. Beautiful garnished with radishes, fried lotus, cucumber.
The disappointing thing was that we also ordered the Sushi Bombs, which are balls of rice with sushi toppings on them and they were garnished the EXACT SAME WAY!! WHY!?
So let me explain the sushi bombs. You put the sushi bomb into your mouth then you squeeze the little tubes of sauce into your mouth with it for a squirt of flavor. The bomb was DELICIOUS. The sauce was taste but there was too much of it so I only used a bit and it was fine. Overall kinda fun and something I'd like to try at a house party, but not at a restaurant again.
Meal was the crispy chicken burger with fries. The breaded chicken fillet was delicious, BUT a little bit dry. If it had been cooked a little less, it would have be perfect. The butter lettuce inside was wilted a little bit, but not enough for me to be concerned. Fries were disappointing. crisp throughout. I prefer fries that are crisp on the outside and soft in the inside.
It was about on the same level as Earls or Cactus club. I wasn't impressed but I wasn't put off. It certainly doesn't deserve the negative reviews its been receiving IMHO. I prefered the Transcontinental menu and decor.
