This is the first time i visit Ikuze (havent been to Metro centre for years), ordered a mix tempura bento box each with my friend and roast pork belly to share.
Pork belly was delicious, slightly crispy on the rind side, soft juicy meat full of flavour.
Presentation of the bento box was good, tempura is crispy with its light coatingand not oily at all, veg, salmon and the prawn were all good quality. I personally like the fried rice offered but i think some dishes like teriyaki salmon might be better with plain rice, i will have to try later. The quality if miso soup is not bad as a bento soup (can be better though), the only thing i didnt quite like were the pickles mixed together with the leaf salad, seemed kind of out of place even though i enjoy eating veg, i think either pickles or salad only will do just fine. Also the apple dessert on the day was so so, hopefully there will be something better next time i visit (i honestly think a few small slices of fresh fruit taste better as dessert...).
Will be visiting again and try other food on the menu!
