I went with a group of friends to try this out. Like others, we were tired of heavy French cuisine, wanted something cheaper, and the idea of finding some gem of of Japanese place in Bordeaux added to the allure. Besides, just being able to talk about eating Japanese food makes us all seem more sophisticated, right?
If you insist on eating here, you might say it was a five star experience, but I will let you decide. I found...
1. The meat in the ramen was a bit too fatty, and the ramen itself was salty. I left with a chemical-y aftertaste in my mouth that I don't typically have after eating ramen. The rolls tasted like ones I have had dozens of times, no better or worse.
2. It is a tough table. Go for lunch, but get there about 10 minutes til 12 to be sure you get a space at the counter.
3. The popularity of the place adds to the confusion. Even I, while trying to maintain my independence, sometimes think, "Wow! People are lining of for this place, and a few of them are Asian. It has to be amazing or I am off base." Well, I am sticking to my guns and saying that this place is only average.
4. The service is terrible, but no one comes here for that.
