Couple of my friends are visiting Tustin, California, so we took them to our favorite Japanese place, Osaka Kappo Japanese Restaurant.
Upon arrival...my wife and I with 4 other friends realized this is not the same great resturant we all love for the past couple years...the whole atmosphere is very different (even the sushi chief at the bar would greed you cheerfully and politely with the waitresses)
It used to be an old Japanese couple where the wife was very polite to service and the husband was the sushi master!
A waitress not only didn't greet us, but she pointed at an empty table and said "Sit!"
As we were being seated, my buddy asked the waitress if the new management is Japanese...the waitress responded loudly "WE ARE KOREANS!", then my buddy curiously asked "Where did the old Japanese couple go?"...Guess what, now the manager/owner/skinny old Asian woman suddently rushed to our table and shouted "WHAT'S WRONG WITH KOREANS, WE'LL DO A BETTER JOB THAN JAPANESE!!!", then both of them ran into the back...leaving us 6 and 2 other tables' guests speechless!!!
I have to say, we have absolutely nothing againest Asians! Matter of fact, we do pay great respect to the ones doing so well at what they do best...like the previous owners.
We just stood up and left with no appetite to try out the food, that's if the sushi tastes like Korean, too; So did a couple whom was waiting to be seated at the door entry, they also witness the whole scene.
Seriously, I really don't care if you are Korean or some other Asian race, if you want to operate a Japanese resturant...DO IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT!
Oh, and to these Korean owners...CHANGE THE NAME! Don't give the good old Japenese style resturant a bad name!!! Name you place "No-Dog-Meat-Today Korean BBQ"!!
Better yet, bring your Freak'n KOREAN PRIDE somewhere else!!!
You are making us sick!!!
What a shame!!!
LISTEN, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR NOT READING THE REVIEWS AT CITY SEARCH BEFORE YOU GO TO ANY PLACES!!! LEARN!!!
Pros: Nothing!!! Current Korean owners are still benefiting from the fame from previous Japanese owners!!!
Cons: ARROGANT, RUDE, & RACIEST MANAGEMENT!!! Note: Not all Koreans are bad as these!!!
