doku-15.....not that impressed

4 of us went last night.
the very good: the decor, ambience, the kobe beef makimono (sushi) (2/3 ppl who had it gave it A++). the enoki & crab bun (dim sum -2 small dumplings $9).

the good: service (still seem to be working out some kinks), stuffed chicken breast. it was supposed to be in a coconut curry sauce. tasted very little if any of that but it was tasty, beautifully presented and was a substantial dish (unlike all the other dishes)-.....i think around $15 or $16). lemongrass shrimp (around $15 or $16).

the o.k.: other various maki rolls (tasty, average, nothing we couldn't get elsewhere for 1/2 the price). reverse chicken/shrimp sui mai dumplings (could have got better for 1/3 of the price on spadina -4 dumplings i think were around $14.00). the duck??/mushrooms wantons.....ummmm not sure what they were trying to accomplish with this dish but there was basically a dime sized portion of supposed duck & mushroom stuffing in a huge (well, relative to the dime sized enclosure) deep fried thin wanton. definitely tasted no duck but even if it was all duck, it was such a silly amount that even the most decerning palate would have a difficult time detecting it.

the bad: famed atlantic salmon. very small portions, average tasting food for very high prices. would consider going back if the prices were assigned relative to the uniqueness, size & tastiness of the dishes.
dinner for 4 (12 dishes), i bottle of proseco ($45), 2 cranberry juices, 1 bottle of evian.....$270 (not including tip)

for around the same amount of $$ and more value for that $$ i would way rather return to lee & george.
