We have been coming to Roppongi's for many years. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the La Jolla/San Diego area. The cuisine is Asian inspired with a unique, fresh blend of ingredients in many dishes. I particularly love the curried roast corn and shrimp chowder for a starter, and then, following the shrimp theme, move right into the Mongolian shrimp with pineapple fried rice, mango salsa with a sweet chili sauce.
They also have an extensive tapas menu, which is exciting and innovative with such tapas as the Indonesian Satay which is chicken breast with lemongrass and Thai peanut sauce. Their sushi bar and menu is another choice open to diners.
With one exception, the service has always been good. The waiters are well trained, helpful and menu savvy. The food is delivered to your table the moment it is ready, which means dishes ordered may arrived in short succession, but not necessarily simultaneously to your table. Since tapas and some dishes are often shared, I find this not only acceptable, but a desirable way to enjoy food at it's optimum.
The owner, Sami Ladeki is often dinning there himself, which keeps all personnel on their toes and we, the customers, guaranteed a fine dinning experience.
