Fast food sushi.

Had dinner here and it gave the appearance of a fast food outlet, very busy on a Saturday night but the staff were very friendly, efficient and the service was a reasonable time. Lots of choices with a big selection of Bento boxes, sushi was tasty but too much mayo for our tastes. I would... read more

Dragon Hotpot has been a regular haunt of mine for a few years. While other Japanese restaurants may excel with sushi or sashimi, I think sukiyaki is where Dragon Hotpot leaves the others behind. I've been enough times to try most things on the menu, but it's the rich and silky broth of the sukiyaki that brings me back again... More

I go here from time to time when I want to have a different lunch than the usual ones. They have nice bento style lunch set for very good value. Quality is good, staff is attentive, eventhough it might get a little loud since staff shouts orders from top to bottom. But all in all I can really recommend this... More

I don't know what these people are taking about. This place is awesome & delicious. I ordered a beef curry & my wife ordered hot & spicy torfu. Both delicious. Service was great too.

This restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) serves Japanese and Chinese food. I ordered Kata Yakisoba which contained fried meat, seafood and vegetables in rich gravy over crispy noodles. It was not particular tasty. My wife had Assorted Tempura Seafood and Vegetables. It was just OK. Probably it was a bad idea to go to Japanese restaurant in Vietnam... More

we enjoyed the Ramen. this japanese soup is rich, spicy and delicious. there are many different Ramen versions. the service is attentive but I did not like hearing the staff talking and even arguing together almost in front of us. the place was full of japanese people and overall warm atmosphere. We recommend this place.

Menu is confusing, Staff don't understand English. Service was terrible. Food was overpriced. The Japanese owner there is annoying. Save money and time - eat elsewhere.

Really love the environment at this spot, it's open and spacious and comfortable, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Sapporo beer is on tap, and let's not forget the food. The highlight for me was definitely the sukiyaki, and in particular the mushrooms in it! Great for a large group as they have stoves built right into the... More

4 of us visited one evening and waited over 45 mins for our meal. Other later arrivals were served the same food as us sooner. A complete lack of interest in good customer service!!
