Red Tuna Japanese Restaurant

Red Tuna Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Despite the name, the staff here are all Korean, but that is not to say that the food is bad. We arrived shortly after 8pm, and we were the only ones. We continued to be the only ones till the end, except there were 2 takeout orders.

The restaurant is spacious and clean, though the seats are all stained and could use some washing or replacing.

I was surprised that the chicken was actually really well done with good meat. Not the usual cheap fatty meat that you get at some below-than-average sushi places. You got 2 pieces of gyoza – nice! Plus 8 pieces of California roll rather than the usual 6. Thumbs up! Though the price may be higher than some other places that you can get for $7, it’s worth it. The miso soup is good. Rice is cooked well.

Our server was very friendly and was a pleasant dinner experience. It’s a bit lonely being the only customers, but we decided to bring our big group next time for about 20 people during lunch. We’ll see how it goes.

Lunch Time

We indeed did return with a big group of about 20 people for lunch. The restaurant was very accommodating. One server was very friendly, but the other one was a bit grouchy. The women’s bathroom was out of order, so we all used men’s but it wasn’t any trouble.idearabbit-redtuna7This time, I ordered the Nabeyaki Udon on a chilly winter day. It was really good!

idearabbit-redtuna6A friend ordered the Caterpillar Roll, and it was presented quite nicely and got a ‘woo’ and ‘ahh’ from other people. He was also curious about the Real California roll with real crabs $5.50, so he ordered that. He gave me a piece to try and yup! The real thing is much better! And the price isn’t all that outrages either, especially when the 8 pieces are decent in size. Another great dining experience!

Another Return for Dinner

Sheepie ordered Box C $13.95 with beef and karrage, while I ordered Box A $10.95 with chicken and gyoza. The staff even read it out to us to make sure even though it was a simple order, but she or the chef made the mistake. Sheepie ended up getting the gyoza, while I had his karrage. It wasn’t so much of a problem with us since we were going to share anyways.


Box C came with 2 pieces of salmon and 2 pieces of tuna nigiri. I had one of the salmon nigiri, and it was pretty good. There were also tempura, salad, miso soup and beef on top of some rice. idearabbit_red-tuna20My Box A was similiar. It came with 8 pieces of California rolls (generous!), tempura, chicken on rice, miso soup and salad. The chicken was really good. It was more like chicken skewers with a bit of charcoal flavour, and the meat was tasty, unlike most other bento places that can have fatty meat. The wasabi was dry and hard. Couldn’t smear it on my sushi at all, so I gave up. It was just a big clump.

Otherwise, food was excellent. Service wasn’t that great. When I was paying, and I gave back the transaction machine, her body was already leaving the table as she ripped the receipt and placed it on the table with her back turned to me. No ‘thank you’ either. I saw another table where the other server was becoming impatient with the customer. Can’t really say who’s to blame as I don’t know the situation to comment, but she did have a bit of attitude.

The restaurant isn’t run down, but it was a bit smelly. The speakers were a bit loud playing Korean music. Food was good, but other things were meh…
