Located next to Event cinema, it is open from 11:30am to 10pm.
Notes before you enter:
- It's cash only-there's plenty of ATM's around especially in Event cinema.
- Check out the menu and make a decision of what dish you're having. There is a Menu outside, stuck on their window. Otherwise, you'll hold the queue up and we all know that hungry people, are grumpy people ;).
- The seating arrangements are limited. So I would not recommend this for large groups.
It's a self serve food bar:
- Grab your drink- there's a fridge full of drinks or you can select from matcha or black sesame (new flavor) frappe/slushie (it was extremely tempting but I gave it a miss). You could also grab free water at the tap ;)
- Order your noodle/rice dish-you'll also need to grab a tray and a ceramic dish to add on toppings
- Add toppings-you have a variety of fried food, pickled vegetables and dessert as well
- Pay at the counter :D
The challenge now is finding a seat: We were there at around 8pm on a Wednesday night and it was at full capacity. I cannot imagine what it would be like earlier or on busier days. Surprisingly, we didn't wait for long at all, 2 minutes and we managed to grab a decent spot facing the movie posters.
We all managed to spend under $8
Food was great! Udon was made just that way I like it. Sweet and savory complimented each other without overpowering each other. The sides tasted yummy as well :D. Overall there was nothing to complain about, I was satisfied with the taste.
The only problem was the seating arrangement. I would say it is the equivalent to a food court experience rather than a restaurant (but then again people classify McDonalds as a restaurant). If you pay a few more dollars you can dine at Hana Hana in Liverpool Street just a short walk away is a lot better in my opinion. (I'll post the next time I make a trip there).
