Along with it was a... More

Decided to have lunch at the Marianas Business Plaza. Gentle Brook is located on the first floor. Food is excellent and staff try hard. The place needs more waitstaff. The wait sometimes is long but worth the wait. Come early it gets busy.

Gentle Brooks is owned by a Japanese. Because of this, I expected the food to be delicious. Japanese people are known to provide excellent service and cook delicious meals. I was not expecting much from the service, because majority of the restaurants on island do not know much about CUSTOMER SERVICE. As I've mentioned, I expected the food to be... More

Option A ($10) has the hamburger steak prepared traditionally, served with gravy. Option B ($8) has the hamburger steak prepared 'menchi' style (breaded and fried). I chose B and you can then choose from 4 add on items:... More

Stopped for lunch with a friend and ordered off of the standard lunch menu, trusting that we would get our food quickly . No such luck, as it took over 40 minutes. When my friend' s arrived it was the wrong order -another 1 minutes. We were not in a hurry, but.

I have tried this restaurant several times, each time hoping it would be better than the last time, but have been disappointed each and every time. The food just doesn't compare to other restaurants around, and I had a terrible time trying to get the waitress to refill my water and iced tea.

The waiters were polite and friendly, had no problem with the service and the food was amazing! Their music choice was really relaxing to me. Definitely going back and trying out their other menu items.
