We were early but still ended up sitting like 3 seats away from the store, in front of the conveyor belt. Not the best of seats but it was near the food preparation place. We had a very clear view of serving chef. Suddenly a lousy seating arrangement became a strategic lookout point. Freshly prepared salmon sushi or soft shell crab just out of the wok…. Not only we were aware what was freshly made, we could also place our order directly to the chef bypassing the waitress with the benefit of a shorter waiting time. The salmon sushi on the belt didn’t look too good but no problem. We just placed our order through the chef when we saw some “sashimi” grade salmon on the chef’s table. We also didn’t waste much time placing our order of soft shell crab handroll when we saw soft shell crab on the chef’s cutting area.
We had a good time and made the best of a lousy situation. No restaurant with a view, meal with a view will do fine!!
