Space wise, the place is surprisingly big, maybe because of the layout of the tables with the Sushi island right in the middle. It looks to be quite a popular restaurant too with crowd coming in and waiting for a sit even at 8pm. I guess because it's located outside in the open space compared to the 2 other Sushi restaurant that is located on the 1st floor that made it more attractive to passer by.
Got ourselves comfortable and we decide on what to eat for the main course, Grace and Gabriel decide to raid the sushi conveyor. Guess their mom brought them to the place before as they seem to know what is nice to eat and went ahead to pick the dishes for us. Quite a good choice but skipped the salmon sushi even though I was craving for salmon as the display doesn't look that fresh (I've been spoiled by places like Top Catch that serves awesome raw salmon).
I had the Buta Kakuni Don, simply because there's the word Buta there which felt funny. It's a nice bowl of Stewed Pork Belly on rice, sadly, it felt quite dry and there is a very strong pork smell on the meat compared to all the pork I've eaten throughout my life.
Not sure if it's the peak hour crowd but the service crew isn't that friendly. We had ice tea to wash the food down and as it's free flow, the waiters are supposed to move around to top up the drinks when the cup was empty, as Grace's dish was quite spicy, she finished her drinks quite fast but despite us waving like lunatics, no waiters came to top up the drinks. For me, when no one wants to serve, and with the jug in grabbing distance, I naturally self serve and pour the drinks for Grace. Only to have a waiter appear out of no where telling us off for touching the jug and mentioned firmly that we are not allowed to touch it and if we need to top up the drinks, we have to ask for the waiters to do it.
Personally, if the waiter never come around to tell us off for serving ourselves, I wouldn't have walked off with a foul taste in my mouth. But sadly, even though the food are edible, the service just pushed it down the drain.
