Matahisu-Omakasa Thumbs Down!

Hypnotic23 | Feb 8, 2008 07:23 PM

Well, it was one of those weeks with the boss in town enjoying a bunch of good restaurants. Unfortunately the last meal was the worst.

First we're mingling over a cocktail at Hotel Sofitel and he says to me, pick any sushi bar your in the mood for. I'm thinking about Chef Nobu and always wanted to try Matahisu so we attempt to get a reservation. Being at a hotel the concierge got us in.

Once seated we see the 3 prices for their Omakasa and choose the $120.00 each.

Now I've had Omakasa at Tama Sushi and loved it, not sure what I'm in store for.

As we wait we see people order the regular way at the bar dish by dish and I see some nice cuts of fish, why didn't we get this?

Instead once our food arrives its 1/2 cooked items, tempura, and the raw fish we did get was paper thin rip off.

Very disappointing, out of the entire week I thought our meal at RITUAL (the old White Lotus) would of been on my list yet sadly it was Matahisu

Even our Katsu-Ya Encino lunch ranked very high and our Bev. Hills sushi outing is a thumbs down...
