I had a Social Shopper for $29 (value $60), so I had to make reservations for four people on a Friday at 7:30pm. Phone courtesy wasn’t all that friendly, but was able to make the reservations without any problems.
We ordered lots!
5 piece Gyoza $4.95 – it was pretty good and with everyone being hungry, we gobbled it up really fast!
5 piece Tako Yaki $5.55 – fairly large balls that were really crisp on the outside and hot and soft inside. I don’t recall seeing much ‘tako’ (octopus) in it, but it was pretty good. Everyone liked it.
Beef Tataki $6.95 – this was a bit of disappointment, especially to my friend who wanted the dish. The pieces of the beef was small and not that great. It looked like there were a lot of beef but they were just sitting on a mountain of shredded lettuce underneath.
Tuna Tataki (small) $7.95 – I really liked this dish. The portion was very big, the fish were tasty and fresh. The added daikon (white radish), green onions and 2 pieces of shiso was really nice and went really well when eaten together with the tuna. My friend who was disappointed in the beef tataki was impressed with this one.
Negitoro $3.50 – a bit on the dryer side, but still satisfactory
Dragon Roll $8.95 – very nicely presented. Tasty and fresh
2 Tuna Nigiri $1.25 – Sheepie had both. 2 Salmon Nigiri $1.25 – the salmon was a bit stringy and the rice was dry. Not the best, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Saba Shioyaki $7.95 – good decent size of fish. It was juicy and hot, but too salty for us girls so most of it went to my friend who ordered it.
Toro Sashimi $8.95 – I didn’t have any as I’m not a fan of toro and there were so many other food to eat. But it looked good and I didn’t hear any complaints.
After we ordered to our limit on the voucher, we were still hungry, so we ordered an additional Alaska Roll $3.75 and Chicken Teriyaki Roll $3.95. I was hoping for the Alaska roll that usually have the salmon or avocado on top of the roll with less rice, but this was a futomaki (big roll) version! But it did help fill us up!
Overall, it was a good dining experience. The food was pretty decent and the service was pretty good and servers came by to top off our tea cups from time to time. There are ample parking spaces and the restaurant is kept fairly clean. Nothing fancy, but satisfactory.
