It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

went there today for lunch for mother's day....and i was very disappointed.

i chose this place cause the last couple of times i had good experiences but today...it was just disappointing.

got there...and was taken to our table..then there were no waitresses for at least 10 mins to help us...we didnt get our tea till we asked..and that was 15 mins upon our arrival...but what really pissed me off was that the table behind us came 5 mins later and they got served tea and got their orders taken.

secondly...the food...we first got our miso soup...and wow...the soup didnt even hit half of the bowl/cup...also...the food didnt arrive at the same time..it was so random. also...the appetizers came while we were eating our main course...and we HAD to ask for them too.

overall..it was a disgrace to bring my mom there...i was telling her how good it was..and then...yea....

the waitresses were really slow with everything...even with the tea when we asked for refills...and the worst part was...it wasnt even busy.

Though it is not an excuse.

The rule of thumb usually is, you should be able to serve at FULL capacity.

Im sure there's a good explanation for this. Ebisu rocks.

tatula: Sunday Lunch you say? Lunchtime is really random for us. Sometimes all the customers come at once or sometimes it's really dead in here (like 1 or 2 tables). It's a little bit difficult for me to staff the lunches. I would sometimes put 3-4 waitresses and there's nothing to do but dust the shelves for 5 hours or I put 1-2 waitresses and it's busy as hell. Even at 1/3 full it's already busy because 1 person has to order, get food, get drinks, get bills, close bills, fill drinks, get soup, etc.

Unfortunately I wasn't there at that time so I can't say for sure exactly what happened... last year Mothers day it was quite slow so I didn't think it was necessary to put extra workers this year but it's no excuse. My mistake, I hope I can make it up to you and your family in the near future.

Stopped by for dinner tonight after attending the H&M Flagship store grand opening/cocktail event.

Food was good as always and the Tuna Taco still rocks. Haven't seen Deon in a long time cause I keep missing him whenever I stop by so it was nice to see him again tonight.

25% off everything in the store. GF spent like $130 and bought over 10 things. I got a jacket + shirt for $70.

Free cocktails, wine, punch, and food. I had like 4-5 drinks and some food. It was awesome

Deon!

I might come on Friday night since I haven't been to Ebisu in over a month. I'm never going on Vacation ever again.

Unless I'm jetlagged.. I'll give you a call.

- spicy gyoza: dry and tasteless, way too hot (temp) to eat
- tuna taco: this is ok but nothing special. Could use more spices
- pasta: needs more flavour and better qualitybread
- yakiudon: this was one of the better dishes but I've had better at cheap hole in the wall places
- crunch and munch: waaaay overpriced for a typical caterpillar roll you can find at any ushi joint for 5$-not worth 13$

For a better experience try the eatery on broadway and alma. They have everything ebisu has and much more for 1/3 the price. The same rolls are 5-6$. The vibe is also less pretentious.

Apologies if I offend anyone with this review but just being honest.
good post.. and i am sure Deon would apprecaite the honest feed back... my curry had no flavour.. and my rolls were all mangled up... they would fall apart before even getting to my plate..

i had a huge problem with the service and food quality at the eatery. I think the best place to get the yummiest sushi would be toshi...
