The first two times 4 years ago i was not impressed. We had just moved up from Portland and were searching for a replacement to our favorite place in Beaverton. Both of these times the food was good, but it was not what I was used to. Both times we went for dinner right at 7. Service was sluggish and strained. Combine that with limited parking, as there are 3-5 places that all use the same lot. We decided to try other places.
Fast forward 4 years, and I find myself living in factoria. My wife said let’s try it again. So the 4 of us, My wife and I, my 3 year old daughter, and 2 year old son go in at 7:30. We are seated within two min. Our ordering was prompt. Food was good, much better than I had found locally since my first two visits. It’s highly Americanized in parts of the menu. However I was able to order some of my more traditional favorites. Both of them were very good. My only concern is the cost of the dinner meals. I thought it was quite high.
The next week while the grandparents had our kids we met there for lunch. The luch menu was good, portions were also ample. We enjoyed ourselves greatly, the sushi was good. Not top notch but good. It was consistent with our previous exp. Better than 80% of the other places, but not like my favorite Beaverton shop. Sigh… I’m still working on the owner. I think I almost have him convince to move up here. The lunch meal cost was IMHO far better than the dinner prices.
Will I continue to go there. Yeah I will for lunch when I have the time. We arrived just after they opened, and it was packed 5 min after we were seated. So be early.
