I will start by stating that I have worked in Japan and visited on holiday. Hence my initial impressions
First off the prices are expensive for what is effectively Izakaya food. Some of the staff were good. For one the Teppanyaki chef was knowledable about his raw ingredients. One of our waitresses was rather surley whereas the other one was good. There was no towels in the gents, totally inexcuseable and a cracked and chipped hand basin, which had been cracked for a while. How much does a new basin cost ?
The food was tasty and authentic but it was the first time I have seen sashimi served in thick chunks instead of the more normal thin slices.
You do get the impression that they have been in the UK too long and have picked up UK norms and have lost what you find in japanese restaurants, that is good 'gracious' service.
Overall not a good visit. I will not be going back.
