Huge portions (roughly double you expect and 150% of what you'd want), the best value I've come across, tastes great.

Some odd westernizations, e.g. mackerel curry rice, green salad with salad cream-esque dressing (tasty at least), chicken teriyaki not tasting quite like BBQ enough, and no option to order green tea, but I forgive you for the portion size, for kindly separating the mackerel from the curry sauce, and for giving me 2 slabs of mackerel when I'd expect one.

I have come to expect (and condone) the following downsides:

The main meal plates are plastic and are typically placed (one rim) and then dropped (the other) onto the table in front of you.

The bill is given to you before you need it (they want to kick you out at lunchtime).

Cash only.

No green tea. No unlimited tea option.

You will have to queue if you arrive later than 1pm for lunch.

You may be forced to sit crammed next to some other couple despite there being loads of free space in the restaurant. I suppose this is because they anticipate further customers, but on one occasion they were so obstinate on this issue that I decided to leave and go somewhere else (try Okawari, Lisle St, West End).
