This is the 3rd time we have been here. Tried most of the food, best and worth thr money is their Sukiyaki. Others like maki are fair enough. 3 times though restrooms were visited. We are surprised that despite the number of employees they have...More

I have no complaints about this place! There's parking. Food is affordable. It tastes great too! Presentation is super hip and cool. The wait staff are very attentive. Just don't order the curry. Go for their sushi and sashimi dishes.

Place looks great and the food presentation is nice but the food tasted just so-so. The tofu appetiser was bland and we did not even finish one of the main course we ordered as the Tonkatsu was so sweet and cheesy. We like though the...More

I love the ambiance that enveloped everyone with warmth and energy. But the real highlight is their food, and there’s no stopping people from raving about how fresh and delicious their dishes are. The Oh Umi Maki and Kushiyaki Platter are my obvious favorites here....More

Must try: Shake Belly Aburi, Unaguro Aburi, and Wagyu Cubes. Also try their Nori Tempura. If you want something spicy, go for their Hiroshima Maki. They also serve flavored beer and Sake (warm or cold). Some of their food take time to be prepared, so...More

Restaurant has a nice ambiance. Food is good but it takes awhile before it is served. They should however ration their radish for the tempura according to the number of pieces ordered. Ours came with a measly portion.

Located in the suburban area of Maginhawa, the atmosphere is lighter and a little less polluted. Soru Izakaya is on the ground floor of a new building, the food quality is good and much cheaper than Ooma, though seeming to share some qualities. Interior is...More

I can't stress enough how good the Chizuni Maki is! I think this is a must-try for all maki lovers. :)
