Am I missing something? or is Orris overrated?

tuttifrutti | Feb 12, 2007 02:12 PM

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.

i ordered:

crab and cucumber salad from the special menu

Fried chicken

curry tempura shrimp

scallop w/ mushroom

blackberry-cabernet sorbet

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.
