Mr Kurosawa is a Euro-Japanese restaurant with one of the fullest menus I’ve ever seen.
The restaurant has a rather unusual but comfortable theme. You’d be forgiven for mistaking this place as a high class night club such as embassy because inside you’ll find a modern design with comfortable leather chairs, neon lighting and club music playing at a low, reasonable level, waited by attractive ladies in red.
There are plenty of mirrors inside which make the room feel much wider and more open. This is a desirable effect when you realise how narrow many of the restaurants in the Eastwood Mall truly are.
Hanging from the ceiling you will find backlit pictures which serve two purposes; to light the room and as decoration.
When eating at Mr Kurosawa you not only have the food to enjoy but also additional eye candy which are the waitresses. They’re dressed in smart but informal red dresses which end a couple of inches above the knee and tall black boots which end about an inch or so under the knee.
Aside from appearances, service is actually very good inside the restaurant. You’ll not only be served quickly and professionally but also be interacting with intelligent waiters/waitresses who comprehend what you’re requesting which makes ordering a breeze, especially if you’re ordering something off menu.
As mentioned previously, the menu is extremely large with what appears to be an endless choice of dishes. I assume the idea of this is to provide enough choice that people keep coming back to try different dishes. However, in reality, I wonder how many people return and simply choose the same dish they had the first time because they don’t want to battle that huge menu!
Each time I’ve eaten at Mr Kurosawa there have been tiny hiccups in missing items from the order. They’re very quick to serve these missing items when brought to their attention so it’s not a huge deal but perhaps some additional attention to detail is required.
Generally the meals are prepared and served very quickly. The portions are generous enough to leave you fulfilled unlike some of the older restaurants in Eastwood City who still serve small gourmet sized portions.
