Another dinner there this week. I now agree w/ Koji-San about his policy regarding omakase. Order piece by piece and just talk w/ him.
I watched three jerks order omakase and have Koji-San accept. They sent back half what was presented to them...I went to the back and bought the sent back items...never touched...perfectly presented.
These clowns wouldn't even taste the items. My Japanese guests laughed and had a good time w/ the goodies. I explained that if they felt uncomfortable to not eat the food...they laughed and explained that this was not an uncommom event.
We spent a huge amount of money and felt no pain when we left. Put this in your mind's eye...five Japanese and one round eye doing the can-can on their way to the Hampton Inn behind Sushi Koji.
Still recommended as one of the best sushi places in the US but live w/ the menu. Also don't ordeer anything recommended by the hostess.
