We celebrated a birthday here and boy, it was a mistake. Actually, let me downplay that cynicism a little bit. When we entered, we were nicely greeted by the hostess and a gentleman who appeared to be the manager. They were inviting and polite. That was the thing about this overrated place, the people were welcoming and nice, our server was pleasant and did well, but everything was mediocre at best.
While the menu was just like any other sushi places, the prices jumped about ten dollars extra on each menu item. I nodded my head a bit, I understood we were in the Greenway area and that most of these restaurants were going to be pricey. But to me, pricey meant better quality food, better appreciation in the cuisine, and hell, just overall better tasting food. Most of us got a bento box, in which the only surprising thing was that it was only a dollar to add a cup of miso soup. The portion was subpar, and the food was not anything different than what I could get from a sushi supermarket.
Two people in our party shared a sushi/sashimi platter, in which their only comment was that it tasted like sushi from a buffet. Not one dish stood out to where I was going to give Michi Ru some sort of culinary credit. Well, I couldn't place that on any of the dishes. I kept thinking that while they weren't busy, there were still patrons in the restaurant to where I wondered what they liked about the place. Great and friendly service could go a long way, yes, but terrible food? No, thanks.
