Lunch @ Izumi-Ya Japanese

failed to eat before quality dropped but still pretty good

only shrimp tempura was popular therefore fresh

calms were not too clean, lots still with sand
shrimp tempura was fresh and crispy but batter too thick
same quality as ones sold in supermarket 

plain milk ice-cream
could have spent a little money to add in some matcha powder

- a lot of people complaining about the increase in price and the drop in quality, this was a marketing scheme to lure customers in the beginning and they were successful, without any advertisements in the opening, the place was packed
- considering the price, they're offering the same food found inside the supermarket so its well worth it
- quality for some food may not as as good
- $11.99 + tax, 1 hr limit, did not see them rushing anyone as no one was waiting outside
- went at 2ish and it was still all full
- slow in clearing plates, the staff were chatting in a corner all the time
- refill was pretty fast, the cold food are the unpopular ones, hopefully they'll swap them out for something else
- would still come once in a while just like eating other hotpot or japanese all you can eat

Style: japanese (日式), buffet, all you can eat
