Overall, love the sushi and sashimi omakase here. We had been clients of Endo San for over 10 years while he was still at a local hotel's sushi restaurant. We were happy to find his new restaurant and was loving the fish selection and quality. The price is reasonable for omakase and the quality of the food is excellent. It is a very busy restaurant, although small. We went there for our weekly sushi as a family but found the service although pleasant but very very hurried.
Once we were seated, the kitchen foods started coming very promptly (typically, that's a good thing) , however, before our first course is done, they plonked down the 2nd and 3rd course followed by sashimi all in a matter of 20 secs. There was a sense of pressure to finish up your foods and we don't like that. I understand from a restaurant owner's point of view, they want to get you in and out as soon as possible for quick turnovers. However, no diner would appreciate the hurried feel. That was the biggest turn off and sometimes, if you order extra apart from the omakase, you will have to wait for a long time, one tends to feel they are deliberately trying to drag it out so you will give up and not wait any longer. I did the opposite, I told them, it doesnt matter, I have time to wait!!! The look of the waiter's face was awesome! I had to try hard to keep a straight face. Now, they are really trying to PACE the food!!
So, I think they have to work on this - the pace is very important to complete the full dining experience, afterall, the food is so good it will be a waste to let service drag it down.
