i've been dying to try orris after reading great, glowing reviews on CH, so last night, a friend and I made our way to the sawtelle strip. showed up at 7:30 w/o reservation but was seated in 15 minutes or so.
crab and cucumber salad from the special menu
curry tempura shrimp
scallop w/ mushroom
ginger creme brulee
all the dishes were way too salty, the tempura was SOGGY (in a japanese place???)... nowhere near being impressed. the sorbet was the only thing that i found edible.
i was mortified to have brought my friend there... will probably never visit again.
