Okay, I exaggerate. Humor people.... \r
So my boyfriend brought me here for lunch today, and my goodness...what a disappointment. The pyrotechnics were fun, but the meal service itself left a lot to be desired. To begin, we were here for lunch, so ordering from the lunch menu, our meals were to be $9.50 each for veggie yakisoba and chicken yakisoba. The chef takes his position at the grill and produces an impressive fireball bright enough to blind you momentarily (I think I might have lost a few eyebrow hairs in the process). A bowl of rice and soup (not miso) was served. The rice, oddly enough, tasted as though butter had been added to it- hardly an authentic Asian flavor. \r
The chef then began cooking the vegetables on the cooktop and serving those on our plate. Odd that the meat and noodles were almost another 10 minutes in the making until they were ready to be served. Not how I'm used to eating yakisoba... usually everything is prepared and mixed together for a complete dish. I didn't care for that. \r
The bill was another story still. At $32.00, it was a far cry from what we were told on the lunch menu, even with soft drinks. Upon inquiring with our cashier at checkout, we were told that because we ordered a vegetarian yakisoba (not available on the lunch menu), we were being charged the full dinner price of $13.00 Even so, the bill just didn't add up. A bit miffed by this information, and rather than moan about the discrepancy, we left. Might I add that the vegetable yakisoba didn't even have noodles? Thankfully, my portion was large enough I wound up having a fair amount to offer my boyfriend, but this wasn't what we were expecting.\r
Sorry. Can't recommend it, nor will we be returning.
Pros: Food tastes good. Would be even better if served all at once!
Cons: Menu prices not as advertised. Butter in the steamed rice? You guys are killing me.
