the eatery's menu is filled with basic homestyle japanese food (other than the sushi) at ridiculous prices. other people may not notice, but there is a reason why there are no japanese people in this restaurant (other than my family on that particular night), the food is terrible on japanese standards.
after looking through the menu and realizing how unoriginal the food was, we ordered the age dashi donburi, vegetable gyoza, karaage, and prawn okonomiyaki.
first came the donburi which was terrible and tasteless. the 'sweet donburi sauce' was basically tenmusu (tempura sauce) without the ginger and daikon, the vegetables were steamed, and the age was soft, not crunchy. next was the gyoza which we thought no one could do wrong, we were mistaken. i doubt they were freshly made, they looked like our leftovers microwaved the next day, not crispy at all, and had barely any filling. the karaage was decent, but the salad was romaine with a caesar like dressing and parmesan cheese, very unjapanese. last was the 'okonomiyaki', osaka style. my mom (from osaka) was insulted. is was basically less than 10 pieces of prawn put on top of the batter, it felt like eating pancake. if anyone thinks this is what okonomiyaki is suppose to be, you will be blown away by real okonomiyaki. the sauce though, i will say, was excellent.
basically, coming from a japanese person, this was insulting to japanese food and japanese chefs. we did not order sushi but did see sushi someone ordered and it was definitely rolled too hard, the nori was bursting. perhaps the price is for the ambiance, which i didn't appreciate anyways. 'miso horny'? and the pictures by the washrooms. personally, i was not blown away by the tacky atmosphere. even if i were impressed, it would not be enough to make up for the food.
