go there once in awhile and everything is good except the waitresses, they take forever and i have to yell at them to get their attention. I know they're busy but people shouldnt have to scream for you to come over and take a drink order.

Been there a few times, and its always been packed.

I usually avoid eating oysters at Asian places, but the oysters were surprisingly fresh.

I went to Ebisu Robson last Thursday, we ordered the fried squid, cream cheese gyoza, mango paradise rolls, hot chicken wings, this fried cheese thing (it was $3.98?), yaki-soba with chicken. I was very disappointed with the yaki soba, the noodle is supposed to be thin and soft.......but our noodle was made with pasta?!!! We didnt complain and our food wasn't hot, it tasted like it came out of the microwave.

Our drinks: black beer: no air
: tea, it would be better if it was hot and not cold

You should have complained! Customer feedback is the best source to improve from! I'm very open to critism (regular customers and friends always tell me if a dish isn't as good as it should/can be) and if nobody points it out then it will just stay the same So none of the dishes were hot?! That is very odd .. the Yakisoba, we use pasta noodle on purpose, in the menu it says "Yakisoba Special"... but then again your not the first one to complain and probably not the last. I will discuss this issue with my chefs this week and chances are we'll revert back to the traditional soba noodles rather than be unique and use pasta noodles, some people like it though hehe
As for the beer ... I'm assuming you had the Asahi Black?.. no air?.. it comes straight from a bottle .. I think the Asahi Black IS like that, kinda malty/flat stout? Kinda like a Guiness? It's definitely not as crisp or zingy as say a lager. I think it's personal preference, I think it tastes great but I don't think I can drink 2 of them in a row, taste too strong and too thick for me personally. Ech you had cold green tea? I'll have to reprimand the bartenders

Our food was warm-ish, thanks for the explanation. Other than that, I really love the cream cheese gyoza It was our first time there. We usually go the Asian-Japanese (Manzo) so I guess it was a little different for us.

I only had the green tea and it wasn't warm. Then I asked for ice water instead.
My friend had the beer and was complaining then ordered another beer.

Deon, when I was working in Yaletown, we also used Italian Pasta for yakisoba. Soba is a very specific type of noodle, so on our menu, we named it 'Yaki-spaghetti'. No complaints.

Went there last night, (friday) with a few friends before heading down to club, and it was an awesome experience as usual.

Ordered the Sashimi Salad, Tuna Salmon Toro plate, Salmon Carpaccio, oysters (as usual) and saba roll (torched).

Was so awesome to have all that great food again, and have awesome service. For anyone else that was there from 8:30-10pm, Deon was kind enough to put on Dai-lo for people to watch on the two smaller bar TV's

Deon: I'll be back soon! to pckup my card

There again last night. No one expected to see it that busy on a holiday weekend/monday.

But the staff was fast, and everything was great as usual. Took my guests there, and they were super happy about the food.

And I didn't know Cindy worked there HAHAHA.... i was so suprised

but it's bigger, and more spatious than ANY other place of it's type.

asians are small anyways, cept me XD

I never actually sat on that place near the door. I'd imagine it gets cold when ppl open up for a smoke or whatever.

I hope you didn't pay retail on that shit. I could've got you like 90% off Monster products. The markup is NUTS on those things.
