Been here a couple of times already, probably the best place where to get the best Beef Sukiyaki (at the most decent price); skip the usual sushi/Sashimi fare, go directly to r the beef sukiyaki. Simply delicious. The restaurant is clean, the toilets are the...More

In fact i have to say, the food was delicious and the service was good. The dishes were small and if you are hungry i recommend you to have two main dishes. Pizza and meat were great

Watami won't blow you away, but it is decent Japanese food. Once inside, it's a nice casual place. Clean but busy. I've been here several times now, and it's a good value. Beef (steak) just OK quality-wise, but I like their hotpots. Sashimi also pretty...More

Great food and pretty cheap! Waiters don't speak english, but you can order just by pointing at the things you want on the menu. Happiest place on earth!

2014, July 22. Went to Watami or lunch. Got the special with 1 tempura shrimp and fish. Fish was rubbery. Lettuce browned (oxidation, left out in open?). 3 hours later, hungry again. Price was 48 RMB.

I was there just for a quick meal...only sushi, very fresh ... price acceptable, nice atmosphere even if no one could speak a word of English. But the waiters tried to make you comfortable . Wifi available for customers.

This one is very nice. Disadvantage is no English speaking personnel, but there's menu in English with good pictures. There are also separation for smokers and non-smokers. Seats are very comfortable also.

Our party of three arrived rather late but we got a table and quick service. This is certainly not the best Japanese meal in town (or even this shopping mall) but it was good. The selection was broad. The sushi was not the highlight but...More
