Hokkaido Japanese Cuisine@Ipoh, Perak

This restaurant was once featured in Groupon before, and something to make you jealous: We spent RM19 which worth of RM92.40 of lunch buffet here during the promotion! WHEEEEEE.

Here is the proof to make you even more jealous: http://www.groupon.my/deals/ipoh/hokkaido-japanese-cuisine/716199956

Alright. The highlights.


1. Service
To me, a restaurant service including its staff’s initiation, staff’s attitude, pace of the service and the professionalism of the manager. The staff, as in waiters, are really friendly. They won’t frown even if you have a lot of request, they took the initiative to check the order for us, pour us green tea, refill green tea for us. Not only that, you won’t need to wait long even if there is queue for waiting the cuisine. Their service is fast.

2. Setting
Their architectural design of this restaurant, is romantic enough, simple and pretty. Suitable for family gathering, couple dating, friends party as well.

3. Food
