Fabulous meal had by my partner and myself. We tried a whole host of different things, and although the bill came to over £85, we were out for a treat so it wasn't too much of a shock! It was up there with some of the best Japanese food I have eaten outside of Japan. They did this one temaki sushi called the 'dynamite' and it was literally one of the nicest things I've ever put in my mouth! However, when ordering udon noodles, I was disappointed to be presented with something much more like standard flat, thin soba noodles and not the thick large noodles I believed I was ordering. When I queried this and said I wasn't happy, I was told in a rather abrupt and defensive manner that they were indeed authentic Japanese udon noodles and I could look at the packet if I wanted to. I was slightly taken aback at the aggressive lecturing and declined, stating that I just wasn't happy with the dish and could they take it away. The waiter came over later on saying that one of our temaki sushi dishes would be free of charge as they 'wanted happy customers'. I felt that from then on his previously charming manner actually felt fake and patronising, due to the fact I had seen his angry and accusing side. I later researched udon noodles (as every udon dish I had ordered in Japan had contained the same style noodles I was accustomed to) and found that there are many varieties of udon, but the medium-large thick ones are the most common. This is the only reason that I am not giving a five star rating - the fact I was spoken to as if I was stupid because the plate I ordered was not what I rightly expected it to be. In fact, if you google image 'udon noodles', the majority of the pictures are the type I was expecting!! I eat udon dishes a lot and they have always been the common thick variety in other establishments, and so I feel I was treated unnecessarily harshly just for saying it was no the dish I wanted. I am not sure we will be visiting again. :(
