- very expensive for what you are getting (8.50 euros for a small miso soup)..and its far from high end japanese
- not authentic
i gave it two stars because the fish in itself was not bad.
ok, first of i have to admit that i'm a foodie. i knew from the get go that there is no such thing as a real authentic japanese restaurant in mallorca. i'm lucky to travel the world on a regular basis which includes regular visits to tokyo, nyc, la, (good places for japanese food) etc. anyways, enough about me. i decided to give this place a try as a friend recommended it and its located right next to a good fish market.
the place has 1 waiter for the entire restaurant which was fully booked during lunch. maybe he had a bad day, but he was rather impersonal and said that nothing on menu be altered or exchanged. everything has to be the way it was pictured on the menu. ok fine, so we had a look and i saw that their regular miso soup is 8.50 euros (ps this is not a fancy place!). while ordering i kindly asked what was so special about their miso soup as i was curious. the waiter said it was special because it was made freshly rather than with powder…i would sure hope so! at any rate, after ordering i finally received my sushi order 50min later…50min during lunch time is a very long wait!
i have been to around 100 japanese restaurants in my lifetime and consider myself fairly knowledgeable about its food. i have never been served the sushi the way this chef did. he basically made one big piece and cut it in half so that he can present two pieces rather than do them individually. which obviously results in uneven rice on each piece of sushi. the quality of the fish was not bad, but also not amazing either. the tuna was very low end quality you would expect at a conveyer belt sushi place in london.
overall the service was poor (i just found out from a friend that this waiter is always in a bad mood and is rather infamous..haha), food expensive, average decor, and i would not recommend this place to anyone.
if you go on holiday to mallorca, my advice would be to stick to spanish restaurants. but still do your research!
