Earlier tonight, I stopped at Yama Sushi in Dallas for a late dinner. I went to the izakaya on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Plano. I only had two goals: 1) feed my son 2) have some sushi.
The izakaya is located in a strip mall, right off of US 75.
The first thing that I noticed when I entered the izakaya was the size…and the gross ceiling tiles.
Another thing that I noticed was that there was not a hostess. Instead, I found this list…
I put my name on the list and began to wait and wait and wait. Many customers left, but after 30 minutes, I was still two down on the list. I was triggered by this point and made the decision to leave.
I am very disappointed that a restaurant would not have a hostess or at the very least, someone keeping customers updated on wait times. Per my calculation, there were two waitresses for approximately 48 customers. What?! It will be a tough sell to get me to visit this place again. 🙅🏾♂️
