Maneki has rave reviews throughout the papers, and through word-of-mouth of my asian (and non-asian) friends. Plus they've literally been around for a hundred years. But both times I've visited their service has been inconsistent (try the other night where we waited for 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge us while a woman proceeded to talk on the phone--she turned out to be the owner) and their food is just not that great. I mean, it's good, but it's slow, and I feel sort of heavy afterwards. Not how I like to feel after eating sushi.
