Respond to Review of Prana
by krazykat

Review: Fed up with salads from convenient stores every day, I wanted to eat "real food". After walked around blocks, unsuccessfully finding anything, I decided to give Prana a try. Luckily, the hotel I stayed was in the same neighborhood, AND happened to be only a couple of blocks away from this restaurant. Since the 2 previous reviews weren't sounding too good, I wasn't expecting anything positive when I initially stepped into this restaurant. As I walked upstairs, I saw this Japanese sign with photos of 3 dogs saying "We are in this premises" posted by the door. I guess I should be aware of them. OK, no problem, I'm ready. As I walked further toward the door, I saw one set of table & chairs on the top of stairs which is right outside the door of this restaurant. There, I noticed that this huge dog was sphynxing but surprisingly this dog did not come out to get me or seem to even move at all. It was almost lunch time, maybe these pooches were already fed? Or maybe I was lucky on this day, I didn't get the "pooch attack" like the previous reviewer was mentioning. First thing I saw when I walked through the door was that this counter with plates and plates filled with tasty-looking appetizers, salads etc. 2 staffs who were working behind this counter politely greeted me as soon as I walked in. They were very courteous. One of them asked me if anywhere I wanted to be seated. My time was limited on this day, also I wasn't sure what to order, I decided to get a to-go. I asked this lady what she'd recommend. She first asked me if I ever visited the restaurant before. When I said "no", she recommend me a bento-box which consists of: salad, rice, and 7 small portions of side dishes. I decided to go with her recommendation. While waiting for the food, the lady asked me if I want vinaigrette on the salad or on the side. Since I knew that I'd eat it right away as soon as I get back into my hotel, I said "OK" on the salad. I believe I waited 10 minutes or so(maybe shorter but felt like forever because I was really starving!) until I got called. I picked up the lunch-box, paid 980 yen(including tax), and happily walked out from the restaurant. Not to mention that I simply dig in as soon as I returned to my room and cleaned all off of this bento box. They were all soooo yummy. My overall experience at this restaurant was not bad at all. If dogs would definitely bother you, then your option should be getting a to-go like I did. I'd definitely return if I visit Osaka again.
