Today’s inaugural Bark Out (my new semi-regular post updating information on some of the restaurants and businesses I’ve blogged about over the years) is for Mix It Sushi Noodle Grill, and it’s not a happy one.
For a little brain refresher you can read my initial 5 paw review from March 16, 2015 here, Mix It Sushi
Two weeks ago, I didn’t feel up to cooking, so we went back to our almost weekly gathering place, Mix It Sushi Noodle Grill. It’s been our go-to place for sushi and noodle dishes since it opened in November of 2014. Oh, how the mighty has fallen in only a year.
The service was horrible. Long waits, with confused wait staff, who didn’t know the difference between vegetable tempura platter or the vegetable tempura maki roll. Yes, we ordered the tempura maki, and received the tempura platter instead. Generally, I wouldn’t mind the mix up, I love tempura, but this was the worst I’ve ever attempted to eat. The vegetable pieces were so large you could not pick them up with chopsticks, and they were swimming in a pool of grease congregating in the bottom of the bowl. They were inedible. We gave up after a while trying to explain to the waiter that we order the tempura maki, while he insisted that is what we got.
Another long wait and we received two of the three additional maki rolls we ordered. The rice was not fresh, and the nori used to wrap the rolls was tough and barely chewable. We never received one of our rolls, when we inquired about it, they apologized and said they would put the order in, but then we were tired of the ordeal and told them not to bother.
This was always my go to place. The service was wonderful, and the food always fresh, but something has happened and this isn’t the first bad experience I’ve had here over the past month.
It will take a lot of convincing for me to step my paws back into this restaurant.
