17 Reviews for Kiraku Japanese Restaurant
It really ruined my night, though I had planned dining alone from the beginning. I think they should learn to be more flexible with situation and their customers. If there is empty space and no queue of customers waiting to dine, let people enjoy their meal without having to feel uncomfortable in any ways.
I understand that it can be their policy but they need to make it clear from the beginning at least put out a sign that only people who pay for food can stay in their place so that we know.
I would never recommend this place to anyone and I’d advise every single friend of mine about the experience. It was very unpleasant enough to make me write this review, which is my very first rating any place.
I would never go back.
We decided to share a meal, this seemed to annoy the guy behind the counter, who demanded we both order since we were both taking up seats.
On a busy night this might be acceptable, but this was just flat out rude and insensitive. Expect poor service.
The noodles and dumplings were superb, though I don’t know whether it was out of tradition that they burnt the dumplings or they just cooked it for too long…I didn’t really like the charcoaled parts.
But other than that, the vegetables were generous and non-oily and the noodles were cooked very nicely. It’s a very nice place to squeeze into especially on a cold day.
