The place is cramped when we went, good thing we made a reservation via Booky.com.
The place has an industrial feel to it, with drop lights and shiny cement finish. They have an open kitchen where you can see the food while they prepare it. But not really noticeable because of the orientation of the tables. The service is okay, there wasn't any exceptional service to mention but also none to call out as negative. The table we sat on was ready. The restroom is clean and tidy. Generally, you have nothing bad in the general ambiance.
The food was great. We ordered the Spicy Maguro Salad (tuna sashimi cubes and tempura flakes with spicy Japanese mayo on greens). It was a fresh take on salad; light but flavorful. And with its price, the tuna sashimi serving was good enough.
They have Nori Tempura which is delicious! If you like nori, you should try this. This comes in different servings, so order it whatever level of hunger you're at.
We ordered the Tojo Maki, it's like the Pinoy staple California Maki, served quite artsy; on a large square plate with drawings made of colored mayo. The crunchy toppings with the mango and cucumber makes a good combo.
We also had grilled skewers (not in photo), I've had better but it wasn't so bad either.
Rooms for improvement. Disappointing to see them use a chipped cup to serve their rice (picture of rice cup). This small detail is really something I look into to. Also the lay-out, cause you're like crawling into a night market with the limited spacing between tables. But maybe because of popularity, they had to stack all those tables that way to accommodate the guests. But it makes them not advisable for those in wheel chairs and for babies. No area for strollers, and I don't remember seeing a high chair.
All in all, will go back for sire to try other offerings of Soru Izakaya.
