How tiny is stingy?

Last night I went to a restaurant that gets stellar reviews from somewhat unreliable sources (Zagat, local papers, word of mouth, etc.) Never been there before.

My app was a cigarillo-sized spring roll cut in three one-inch sections. The hub had a silver-dollar sized flan in a few tablespoons of thin soup.

My main was three not-very-large scallops on a dollar-bill sized gallette. His, four matchbook-sized slices of lamb on various substrates.

These alone added up to about $75. Everything tasted quite nice, but Nobu it ain't. Seems very stingy to me. Would others accept this as okay?

Another thing: they offered my well-dressed, soft-spoken 11-year-old a gameboy when we sat down. He declined. Anyone ever experience this scary, uncivilized practice elsewhere?
