We walked past this place the last time we were at St James and it came to mind when Auds recently had a meat craving. It's a pretty small place and we managed to get the last available table. Seemed like we ordered a ton of food but ended up being quite manageble. For grilling, we ordered -
Marbled Beef $14.00+++
Beef Tongue $14.00+++
Combined Seafood $12.00+++
Australian Rack of Lamb $12.00+++
and Mixed Vegetables $5.00+++
It's self-grilling but the staff kept intefering, telling us to use the tongs and not the chopsticks to pick the food off the grill as the chopsticks would "melt". Huh?? I think something got lost in translation...
The food itself was only ok. Auds love weird meats hence the beef tongue. In the spirit of being adventurous, I tried it and it was f.u.n.k.y. A bit tough, and the whole time I was eating it I was thinking "I'm eating a cow's tongue"... Well, I can say "been there, done that" and think I can also add "never again" to it.
The rest of the stuff was not marinated as well as I expected and the dipping sauces were pretty plain. Also the portions were quite miniscule - considering the shrinkage that occurs with grilling.
When I saw the Enoki Mushroom Soup $5.00+++ on the menu, I just had to order it. It didn't look very appetizing, and really didn't taste all that good.
Even worse, we found a rubber band in one of the bowls -
Totally camouflaged! It's a good thing we spotted it... when we told the waitress about it, she just said "oh!" and cleared the bowl. I was totally stunned by her near non-reaction to it.
Not very good food, very unimpressive service... not much chance I'll come back here willingly. Oh well, chalk it up to experience.
