Staff Skills






Megavina's Investigators have visited this Japanese restaurant, they ordered a selection of dishes and beverages, visited the facilities (toilets and had a look on the kitchen area if possible), they checked the cleanliness and how the staff interacted with clients. Our investigators work anonymously, the best way to get real and objective reviews because the staff and the managers don't know that we are investigating.

Welcoming, fresh and savory dishes

- by - Establishment visited January 13, 2016

At Tokyo Deli, each client is welcomed in japanese with "irasshaimase" [いらっしゃいませ], the staff is very polite and smiley. Because we didn't book any table in advance, the waitress offered us to come to the table close to the main door, may be not the best place but the restaurant was already crowded.

The menu was large but it contained a lot of pictures so it was very easy to make our selection.

What better way of building up an appetite than fresh salmon served with seaweed? It was a delicious appetizer, salmon was cut very thinly, tender and tasty. We selected seafood Negiyaki a kind of savory pancake filled with prawns, squids, fishes and fresh herbs. It's similar to okonomiyaki but thinner.

We also tasted soy marinated chicken with sesame seeds, it was good but the pieces quite too big. As main course we chose a menu plus set composed of Black pepper chicken with an assortment of maki. Chicken was tender and the sauce very tasty. We appreciated the sushi, different sizes, different stuffing.

What to drink with that kind of menu? In fact, we didn't know, we could ask the waitress which Sake we could choose but we preferred to drink a Sapporo premium beer, probably the perfect choice. The Sapporo taste is phenomenally well balanced, sweet malt, followed by biscuits and bread, then rice with a dry noticeable hop finish! The beer was served as requested without any ice but cold.

Concerning the budget: Excellent value for money, for 2 persons we spent less than 350,000vnd (less than 15USD for a lunch).

Concerning the location: Le Thanh Ton is a busy street with plenty of shops, hotels and restaurants. The only problem if you come by scooter, is the lack of space. It's better to use a taxi or to walk.

Our selection was absolutely gorgeous, food was fresh and well presented. The restaurant was clean and staff well trained and particularly polite. Atmosphere was good even if we were sit close to the entrance door, a busy way to access the upper levels. The table for 2 was a bit tiny so not so comfortable to eat with many dishes on it. Toilets were really tiny, just for one person but they were clean.
