Box A – salad, prawn, yam and 2 green bean tempura, 2 gyoza, beef teriyaki rice
  • 6.5/10
  • The salad was drenched in an orange kind of sauce and was on the more sour side
  • The tempura breading was on the thicker side but it was fairly crunchy
  • The teriyaki beef was way too sweet and was over cooked
  • The gyoza was crunchy on to top bits but on the bottom it was soggy

Marpole Roll (8 pieces) – prawn tempura, cucumber and avocado w/ “Chopped scallop and Masago” on top (Spicy Mayo and Teriyaki sauce)
  • 7.5/10
  • The prawn tempura added a nice textural component overall and did not get soggy from the sauce
  • There was a good amount of chopped scallops on top
  • Luckily there wasn’t too much teriyaki sauce and spicy mayo sauce so as to be drenched

Black-Orange Roll ( 8 pieces) – California roll with unagi and salmon on top w/ spicy mayo sauce
  • 7.5/10
  • Couldn’t really taste the unagi and salmon on top
  • But it did have a nice smoky flavour to it
  • The California roll could have used more avocado

Tonkotsu ramen with salmon roll combo
  • 6/10
  • The ramen was way over cooked
  • The broth tasted like it was out of a package
  • The pork was dry and not well marbled
  • The salmon roll was okay – good ratio of salmon to rice
Things to Improve on: Box A and technicalities
Summary: They have some really cheap deals here. Although the place is small, the service was nice. The food was mediocre.
