Went to this place for a friend’s birthday. All I knew about this restaurant was that it was a Japanese Restaurant with a lot of tapas – which reminds me of quite a few other restaurants like this.
Variety – 7/10 – The selection was alright. To me, the cooked vs raw selection was 40/60 respectively. There wasn’t much on the menu that appealed to my eyes and also based on the price and the amount you would get. Meh.
Service – 9/10 – for a large group, their service was really good. They were quick and nice. Super friendly and made a couple jokes about how we already finished the bottle.
Taste – 8/10 – Most of our dishes were really good except for the duck. Was not expecting that at all and I definitely did not like that peanut sauce. Yuck. Everything else tasted fine/normal but they came in small portions.
Atmosphere – 10/10 – the whole customers entering/leaving and the employees would shout something in Japanese. The atmosphere was lively even though I didn’t understand. Their birthday song/singing got me really hyped even though it wasn’t my birthday. You can see their employee/restaurant culture is strong.
Reasonably Priced – 6/10 – For the portion that you get, it is really expensive. I don’t know if there are other costs placed into consideration when pricing these dishes, but wow, it is definitely not the bang for your buck!!
Overall, I would not come here again. I feel like their chain in Toronto is a bit better (Kingyo)
