Okomen Japanese Restaurant Desa Sri Hartmas review

Let me start off immediately and say that this is not the kind of Japanese cuisine I would go back to.

We decided to be adventurous and try something new for Saturday night dinner and after a quick search we decided to check out Okomen at Desa Sri Hartamas.

Bad move. We arrived at 730pm and there were only 2 tables occupied. That should have warned me ahead.

The good stuff...
- gyoza was good, maybe because we ordered that ahead and we were very hungry
- the kid's meal with ramen, chicken and tempura was okay, placed in a cute lunchbox
- steak combo set was tasty, the pork pieces were huge and juicy, the steak was small but also tasty, and salmon was not bad. Would recommend this set.
- pork yakiniku was tasty
- I asked for a baby chair and they had one available. I hate restaurants that don't provide high chairs

The bad stuff...
- the Prawn Mayo was too much mayo plus mustard... Not the kind of dish we appreciate. Very small shrimp pieces. I get better value at that price when I had dinner last night at Alexis Gardens (shrimp in olive oil)
- tori oko was ultra mayonnaise to my taste. It looked nice but when I tasted it I regretted ordering it. Definitely not the kind of Japanese stuff we like.

Overall:
Pricing : average, not too expensive
Food: 5/10 ... Not the authentic Japanese stuff we were looking for
Ambience: 6/10 looks Japanese modern, simple design
Service: 6/10 one of the staff didn't seem to speak very good English, my water was empty I had to call their attention despite that the restaurant was close to empty
Return Again? No, most definitely not

A Saturday night where I made the wrong choice... Oh well. Learned my lesson. Next time I want Japanese stuff I better just stick to the places I know and have come to love & trust.
