Just home from a meal at Isshin - my first and last meal there. We opted for the a la carte rather than the all you can eat deal. What started out being quite a pleasant experience went down hill after several entrees. If you are expecting to leave feeling full and satisfied, I suggest you go elsewhere. We ordered the large vegetable tempura (12 pieces) and thought we would count how many we received...only 10, not a big deal but they were 10 tiny pieces and at $12.50 it is a rip off. The Gyoza were ok,the Vegie Croquettes were also tasty. The salmon, two tiny pieces at $10.00 - enough said. The Yakitori - terrible - the quality of the chicken used - I think a cat would turn its nose up. Overall, very, very average - and when this was mentioned on paying - the care factor from the waitress was zero. No-one in the the party I was with, will be returning to Isshin.
