In summary: good food, TERRIBLE SERVICE. I could vouch for the good food, it was not my first time to eat in the establishment. To top the fact of inadequate and inefficient staff, the manager had to be requested for a second time for an explanation. Manner of soliciting feedback from customers (or rather telling them off) show the kind of service an establishment has. Manager Chad Montero had effictively made it clear that customers (seemingly) have no right to make complaints. "I understand you wanted to be served first" was his statement among others. To make things clear, we do not want to be served first. We wanted to be served on time. I had no idea that a Cha Soba and the Yakitori Meal set takes more than thirty minutes to an hour to serve. I'm sorry but I'm finding the act of the manager quite rude. To add to the disappointment, the bill came and he said nothing is to be paid since it was made complimentary. I am not seeking for free meals. I pay for what I ask for. If this is the establishment's way of hushing up their errors, well think again. Improve the service and please improve the manager's way of receiving customer feedback. His act was nothing short of insulting.

First time to try this resto. I already love the miso soup. It's my fave served hot with the very soft tofu. Guava juice is a hit! It's thick and soooo refreshing. The place is well lit, ambient, instore music is within hearing level and not distractingconversations. Clean plates too. Not happy with wifi though, keeps on dropping.

We all left this restaurant satisfied and happy! I'll be straight forward with my review, because food, and the service was so good. You can see everything we had in my photo. The sashimi was fresh, two thumbs up for the serving size, skewers were so flavorful (really liked their sauce), and the staff were so accommodating.
My mom liked our dining experience here too. We will definitely be back! Still a lot of choices to choose from.

Found another restaurant that's pretty great for huge set meals after a long and tiring day! My favorite would of course be Hokkaido Ramen Santuoka, but now Tori Ichi Yakitori and bar can compare!
We had their yakitori set meal (380php) - butabara, hasami, usura tamago (quail egg skewers), asparagus bacon, egg rice, miso soup, and matcha ice cream to share because we didnt know which of their yakitori to get and we both wanted to try their miso soup, egg rice, and matcha ice cream. These skewers were pretty good but did have one common denominator, the sourness. I feel like there was too much soy sauce or seasoning. Consuming all these gave us this weird marinate taste when we burp. It's not amusing at all!!! Too much seasoning, I think, could be lessened, but not super duper bad. But the set meal is pretty sulit naman. The miso soup is good as well as the egg rice, very hearty and homey.
We also had the bacon + shiitake mushroom yakitori, this was also yummy and so nice to chew on!
I also got their pork broth based ramen, price was around 300+php, noodles were chewy, soup was okay as well, homey and huge serving. But don't expect as they don't specialize in ramen. Ippudo is still the best.
The other set we got was the torikara mayonnaise don (350php). This had the matcha ice cream and the miso soup as well. Pretty good also, big serving!
Okay, so overall it was a very fulfilling and satisfying meal. I mean, the servings were huge considering the price. Food was good, although everything had one common denominator talaga, the sourness and the aftertaste of marinate.
The highlight of the meal was their MATCHA ICE CREAM. Now I have the perfect place to grab matcha ice cream. Considering it was a set meal, the scoops were huge and the ice cream didnt melt easily at all. Super yummy and fulfilling even on a sick day. Totally recommend. Also love the egg rice.
Service was great. More on the pricey side but very reasonable as servings were huge as I keep saying.
