I've been eating at Genkai Nada Japanese Restaurant since an ex-colleague introduce it to me 10 years ago.
It remains pretty much the same since then, with the exception of some furniture and interior changes mostly due to wear and tear.
You'll always find a Japanese inside for dinner or lunch so you know it has to be pretty decent food.
I usually go in and take their set menu or if you are in for lunch they have a weekday special menu. I highly recommend their Unagi Set or the Deep Fried Pork chop. The former is a huge
fillet of unagi, so huge I'd say it is double the portion size of most other Japanese restaurants.
Seating is limited to approximately 25 and they do have some outdoor seating in case you don't like the air conditioning.
What I do like about their set menu is the variety of food that ends up on your tray. You'll get a small bowl of miso soup with seaweed and tofu, often a potato salad, pickles, slice of fruit, and sometimes a dish I have no idea what it is. (See my empty plates)
I took a lousy photo but you can see the quantity of items you get is great value. Make sure you have an empty stomach before you go so you don't waste anything. When I visited I was so hungry and into eating I realised too late that I had not take a good picture.
If you like sashimi and sushi you'll always get it freshly made by hand when you order.
I'll probably eat there more often once I move to my new place on West Coast Road.
