Food Review :: Komoro Japanese Dining

This restaurant opened recently and thought I'd some in and try.

Some mask displays at the entrance.

Their menu.

They had soba (hot and cold), udon (hot and cold), bento, rice meals, and side dishes.

The interior.

And then there were some very informative food photos (and their origin) on their walls.


The Komoro Bento,

thinly sliced pork yakiniku, vegetables, and two slices of oranges.

Included with the meal is miso soup, which tastes just like.. Japan.XD


I had the Kakiage Udon, deep fried vegetables (although Kakiage is supposedly a mix of vegetables and seafood, I'm not sure I found seafood in mine -- was mostly onions, carrots, and was it leeks(?).) on top of warm udon in soy-sauce based soup.

This was very good, I like the light soup stock, the noodles, and the crispy goodness on top of it.


This was the Tentoji-Don:

Prawn, Kakiage, Okra, and Seaweed Tempura over rice.


We also had Gyoza which was my favourite part of the evening. 餃子は最高だ!!

These potstickers were so friggin' good!! You know when you could tell it's freshly made? This was it, exactly. The wrap was soft, the filling was made with vegetables and the taste was absolutely perfect.

The Gyoza was the perfect conclusion to the evening.

Food 9/10
Service 7/10
Presentation 8/10

The taste was authentic, and was served very hot. The service was so-so. When we entered the store the owner was there so the staff were all-smiles and welcoming. But as soon as the owners left, the tables turned (sort of)-- the promotions stopped, the kitchen staff sang loudly, just minor things like that. When we left the staff were huddled in a corner talking and no one thanked us on the way out. Prior to this the japanese owner would thank and smile at guests who came and went - I had a similar experience at another Japanese place where the staff (didn't keep to themselves when the manager was away, and) greeted everyone who came in and out of the restaurant..
