I've discovered the majority of Asian restaurants in Corpus Christi are pan-Asian, meaning they don't really specialize in one country's food. This restaurant states it's a Japanese restaurant, yet they have lots of Korean and Chinese food. The issue with this is when a place tries to cook dishes from other countries, they generally don't come out right, unless you have a well-trained chef. I've lived in Asia for the last 5 years and these pan-Asian places have disappointed lately. People need to realize that not all Asian dishes are the same and have more than soy sauce in common. The galbi was dry and not seasoned/marinated well, the bulgogi was too sweet (and served with large chunks of sautéed vegetables - not traditional), the orange beef was over-fried and mostly batter, and the kimchi was too salty. The chirashi and soft-shell crab roll were spot on. Staff were nice and attentive.
