Warning: very few veg options!

I've definitely had much better Japanese food. I came here to meet with friends, but had I known the price and menu beforehand, I would not have come. First of all, I'm vegan, and there were almost no vegetarian options let alone vegan options on the menu (not even a tofu option for protein in stir fries, etc). I ended up just ordering the vegetable roll, a sushi roll with lettuce, avocado, and some pickled vegetables, and a soft tofu appetizer dish with the fish flakes "omitted". The roll was extremely underwhelming and dry, probably because it was half filled with lettuce, which doesn't really add anything taste wise. Definitely not worth $7 +tax. I think changing it to a veggie pumpkin tempura roll would be a much better option. The sushi ginger on the side didn't seem fresh- it was quite dry, like it'd been sitting for a while or something. The tofu dish ($6) was literally cut up soft tofu sprinkled with green onion, with a dipping sauce and fish flakes on the side (even though I explicitly said no fish flakes twice). I guess it was my mistake for expecting more, but I needed some source of protein and this was one of their few tofu dishes. I could have cut up a block of silken tofu myself for less than a dollar from the supermarket. There were actually some flakes that made their way on the tofu, probably accidentally, but still not great. The only thing going for them was the presentation: everything looked beautiful even if the taste was lacking. My friend ordered a chicken Katsu Don, and she didn't even finish half of it, as the sauce was much too sweet. The restaurant deserves points for service and atmosphere; the servers were very friendly, calling "thank you" in Japanese after each customer leaving. Unfortunately though, the food at Densetsu definitely did not live up to our expectations.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Very few veg options, PRICEY, small portions
