i was very excited to go to this restaurant ever since i saw that it was voted number 1 japanese restaurant in santa clara county. Keep in mind that i have been to over 10 japanese restaurants. When i walked inside the place seemed alright. The staff was friendly and service was prompt but the store itself did not have a very good atmosphere and it seemed cluttered. i ordered the teriyaki chicken with vegetable tempura which costed $16 and included miso soup and miso salad. The soup and salad were alright, the tempura was decent, but the chicken was HORRIBLE! the quality of the meat was pathetic. i have never had meat that was chewy from fat and grissle. if im going to pay $16 for a plate of chicken it better be good quality meat. honestly, i dont understand how this place got voted number 1 japanese restaurant in the metro. Out of all the japanese restaurants i have ever been to this place is tied for the worst with sushi boat in valley fair. you can't have a good dish with poor quality meat, end of story. i have been trying to understand how someone could enjoy food like that. If you know what good quality meat and good japanese food is you will know that this place should not have been voted number 1. I have been going to kobe on el camino in santa clara for 8 years now and i have yet to find a place that is better. I do not work there and i am not biased. i love trying out new places but when people leave 5 stars for a restaurant that tastes like sh*t it really makes me wonder. the point is stay away from here because of poor quality and stop praising places that serve the same quality food as my dog receieves.
Cons: the worst quality meat i have ever receieved
