Came here a few times. Never disappoints. Aug 16, 2012
Always enjoyed the sushi from this place (even though it focuses more on BBQ). Came here with family this time and tried different things. Overall it wasn't superb as it was anymore, but still good. Just hope their standard won't decrease even further.
- egg rolls.
- don't know whether I ordered the wrong thing, or they changed the dish. Wasn't really what I was expecting.
- It was alright, but not as good as it was before.
- pretty good
- there was actually ox-tongue in the empty area.
- wayyy too much sand in the clams
- clams were quite small too
- it was alright. would be better if the flavour was stronger
- not that good.
- the tempura batter wasn't good
- simple, but pretty nice and refreshing to eat with all the meat.

bad Dec 30, 2010
i thought i had to write this entry. this restaurant is a complete disappointment. ordered lamb chop, wagyu ox tongue (thick), korean bbq ribs(calbi), japaneese eggplant (way overpriced at $55 for 4 tiny pieces of what I couldn't distinguish as "japanese"), sashimi salad, tempura, stir-fried mushroom/asparagus, cod.
they somehow managed to mess up ALL of these dishes. their meat was such a disgrace. the calbi barely had any taste and dipping sauce wasn't good either. lamb chop was nothing to write home about. cod was fishy and even something as simple as stir-fried vegetable wasn't up to par. sashimi in the salad wasn't fresh and was tasteless.
lastly they had serious problem pacing the food. they should have brought the salad and tempura first then wait a little to bring out the meat and fish then vegetable. instead, the first that came was the eggplant and raw meat, then everything rushed to our table all of a sudden within 2 minutes including salad & tempura.
service was not attentive. asked for fork and knives for the lamb chop but the waitress brought them to the table next to us. the guests were obviously confused at that table and as we indicated again we needed forks and knives the waitress took the knives and forks she already places on the other table and gave it to us
all in all, i will never come back to this reataurant again

Delicious! Jul 17, 2010
This is a place where you would go for a comfortable and spacious setting, preferring quality over quantity. Everything here is moderately portioned and have rather good quality. It's not cheap but not overpriced either. Had dinner for the first time here today, was quite impressed!
On a Saturday night seems like every other restaurant in World Trade Centre is booked/full, but this restaurant is rather big and I guess it's more pricey so there are still space around 7 pm.
The little 前菜 was refreshing. Small marinated eggplant. Other reviewers below have photos.
Assorted Sashimi Salad
Very good dressing. A hint of wasabi but the dressing is not overpowering. Lots of fresh greens and cubes of tuna, salmon, squid and something else. Really enjoyed this salad.
Vegetable Salad $48
Dcent sized salads with some romaine leaves, shredded daikon/cucumbers/carrots with japanese balsamic vinaigrette lookalike on the side.
Tri-color cold tofu? cold tofu cube three ways? Forgot the exact name and the exact price. Probably $48 again. An appetizer.
Basically a brick of cold tofu with sauce topped with some salmon roe and sea urchin. Very fresh and refreshing.
Vegetable platter (pumpkin, leeks, mushrooms, asparagus, onions, yams) $98
Not bad. I really liked the leeks after they are grilled. Could have given more asparagus. The pumpkin was really good.
U.S. boneless short rib $88
6 reasonable sized pieces. A bit on the fat side, since I personally prefer leaner meats.
Vegetables 稻庭烏冬 - forgot how much it was
Like the other reviewers said, their 稻庭烏冬 is quite 煙韌 and 彈牙. soup base is very well seasoned. Nice and hot. Yum.
Staff service is quite good. Everyone's courteous and it's easy to get their attention.
Other food selections - their menu is quite comprehensive, have a separate menu for sushi/sashimi/rolls, 6 choices of cold salads (as you can see from our food selections we are quite veggie obsessed, hence I would like to try the pumpkin salad next time which looks delicious in the photo), plenty of beef, pork, chicken and seafood for grilling, as well as a range of hot rice/noodles dishes to choose from. Also quite an extensive drinks menu.
We ordered the above items and there were 3 of us. At the end of the meal it was just right, not too stuffed.
P.S. Can someone teach me how to make the thumbs up and thumbs down icon in my post??

WORST restaurant i had ever been to... Dec 26, 2009
my friend has called to book a table for 3 to celebrate x'mas as she has seen a promotion ad of an x'mas dinner set for 2 from the magazine. Since we have 3 people, she purposely asked if the dinner set could be made for 3 and the person on the phone said they could do it with no problem. So my friend went there and made a HKD200 deposit...tonite we went there and sat down for less then 5 mins, the waitress came over to my frd and asked if she has purposely reserved to sit at that particular cart seat and my frd said she didn't...so the waitress asked us if we could switch to another table since another customer has specifically reserved that particular cart seat....ok, so FINE...we switched to another table(bigger one but not cart-seat) to avoid the trouble as we needed to finish the dinner in 2 hrs for the movie....when we sat down to the table we moved to, the waitress just brought the 3 cups of tea from the previous table...the point is my friends had already been drinking their tea, does she know which one is for which??????????? i wonder why didn't she give us a new cup of tea??!?!??! how could this be, just common sense!!!!!!!! ok, the next thing was coming...when we were ready to order the x'mas dinner set, the waitress said they couldn't make it for 3 person...we were so surprised at that moment, what kind of restaurant is this? It was already ridiculous to ask us to move as we were brought inside from their staff, shouldn't they plan in advance for the seating as there were still a few cart seats emptied in the restaurant????????? we were so pissed and we needed to talk to the manager, his excuse was even more hilarious...he first said he could go inside and checked with the chef if the set could be made for 3 person, but when he heard that we were in a hurry...he refused to go asked and said they couldn't make it for a dinner set for 3 person because the utensils were not made for 3 person...GREAT, it was already 7pm and it was not easy to find a fine dining place to eat on an x'mas night at 7pm at cwb without a reservation!!!!!!!! we decided to leave and got our 200 BUCKS deposit back...this is the “suckest” restaurant we had ever been to and for sure WE WON'T BE BACK EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bad Bad Bad.... Mar 06, 2009
a really disappointing experience
friend and i arrived at 7.15 and was led to our table - a table right at the entrance, when 99% of the tables were empty...and there were food scraps all over my seat - EWW~!
as there were only 2 of us, we ordered the assorted BBQ meat platter to save the hassle of deciding what to order
in addition, we ordered: 1) stir fried mixed vegetable; and 2) goose liver sushi
vegetable - came with a sizzling hot plate was super salty...
goose liver sushi - the goose liver on the sushi was obviously overcooked and it felt as though i was eating pork liver....for $80, i think it is normal for anyone to have some kind of "expectation", Hip sushi on ground floor can make better goose liver sushi than them at half their price
assorted platter - tasteless (no meat taste), chewing-gum liked frozen meat (definitely not due to lack of cooking skills), and they didn't smell good on the BBQ either, how can BBQ (any BBQ) not smell good AT ALL??
No one refilled my tea
No one asked whether i wanted a second beer either
Staff were busy chatting at the bar together with their supervisors/managers, they were so loud and you can barely enjoy your meal or talk to your friend, the managers/supervisors should have known better, yet, they were so busy chatting with the staff and going back to their friends' own table to continue their own chat...
my friend is an easy-going person when it comes to dining out, but she also indicated that she will never go there again...
just hope that one day, their staff/supervisors will chat the to their own senses as to why the restaurant is not performing
good luck to the restaurant...

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!! Dec 27, 2008
There are many disappointments ever since we made reseravation at Kiriyaki. My husband called and booked a room for people of 10, the staff had called my hubsand over 10 times to re-confirm the table. That's really annoying. If they don't trust us will show up, why can't they ask for deposit? But they didn't ask for deposit, just keep calling each day to confirm the table!
We expect the Japanese 和牛 and Aus Wagyu Beef will be tender and no need to chew so hard to swallow. However, they are as HARD as CHEWING GUM and we need to chew for a long time to swallow them. The beef are so "UN", unbelievable bad quality. We have spent almost $6,000 for all the food, the most expensive dishes are the WORST among all as the beef are so " UN" (hard)... anyway, we will NEVER go there again, I think they have used a cheaper kind of beef instead of Japanese 和牛 and Aus Wagyu Beef. The beef texture is even worse than the standard Korean BBQ beef that we ate from other restaurants.
Spending per head: Approximately HKD600
