How do you compare Hapa Izakaya to a budget hole-in-the-wall sushi joint?

Just got back from this place.. got some takeout
Cali + Dynam Roll x 1
Tempura Udon x 1

I have to say.. after reading this thread I'm not that impressed. Great service as said in this thread; however, the food I got was quite medicore / lacking. Nothing super special about the rolls, my tempura was extremely oily (though theres a significant amount) and the udon wasn't anything special, just MSG (obvious) and little ingredients in it (sushi garden makes it way better). Kinda ironic how the menu is pretty much identical to Sushi Garden's... they totally ripped it off them hahaha

Another thing was that in their kitchen, since its so visible was a lot of "pre-fried" tempura, heh, hopefully that wasn't the ones I got, maybe thats the reason why the portion seemed more than I thought I'd get. Anyhow.. just my honest review with no bias.

Overall, this is just another sushi joint but with great service, I'll stick to Sushi Garden.

My sister was there for dinner earlier. She said this place was no better than Samurai and Sushi Garden in terms of food. The only redeeming factor for her was the service.

yeah it's true, their food is mediocre at best
Nanaimo Sushi would be the perfect restaurant (subjective) if their food was bomb diggity
i mean, what other restaurants have waiters/waitresses yelling at you when you walk in/out?
SO MUCH FUN

most japanese restaurants in the late 90's and early 2000's greeted you when you walked in and when you walked out

it's more of a trend these past few years that they've seemingly stopped caring.

Hapa is a dump. I went to there twice - Kits and Robson. Both times the food was lacking. Waitresses seem like they work for Joeys/Cactus but provide no service.

Zakusshi, Guu (thurlow or gastown), Manzo (before management change) >>> hapa

^ It's like any of the Korean-run sushi joints. Nothing spectacular. Just your regular big piece econo-budget sushi.
