Tabeya Japanese Restaurant in Greenville, NC - Good but will it last?

This place just opened up over the weekend. It was used to be Wendy's and they redecorated the place with faux wood vinyl floors and color changing lights. Similar to Fuji Japan and Japan Inn, this place serves Sushi and your oh so typical Japanese food.

Just like any other restaurants in the east, opening weekend was filled with chaos and frustrated customers. First, there were a few idiots who didn't really have a clue about what they exactly ordered and then some of the servers had no clue about who ordered what. Also, some servers got the name of the dish confused. For example, Hibachi Chicken instead of Terriyaki Chicken.

Fortunately the food quality was great! Sushi rolls were well made and so were the entrees. I had the Terriyaki Steak and Tempura Shrimp combination box. For 15 bucks you get six pieces of fried tempura shrimp, thinly sliced ribeye steak, a few pieces of crab ragoon and fried rice in one big bento box. Each shrimp was packed with panko bread crumbs and perfectly fried. The steak was well marinated thogh a bit overcooked.

Overall I am satisfied with this place. Great food and decent prices. I don't really care about service and neither should you. Go there to enjoy the food!

I will definitely be coming back in a few weeks after they work the kinks out.
