used to love this resto until my 4th visit when i ordered for my food of choice, which the waiter repeated to us and was agreed.
was so hungry that after waiting for 45mins, i made a follow-up on my order as it seems my order have been long forgotten & my partner was abt to finish his food...and finally i got the wrong food! and wat ticked me off with how the waiter insisted that I should take the food because of i wait for my "original" order, it will take more time! adding "ayaw nyo ba nyan?" of course i don't like it coz i do, id order it in the first place. another thing, when my food was finally served by another waiter, the plate was thumped down without any apologies..he just looked at me..nice! so i called the attention of their Manager, good thing she has this good sense of customer service...now am not recommending this to my frnds anymore..and no plans of going back..

I haven't eaten at John and Yoko before because I guess I was a little bit intimidated by the waitresses and their skirts and the place looks pricey. We only ate there recently to avail our discount vouchers. It was a good thing we did because we had a pleasant experience. The waitresses still wore mini skirts but with a dark stocking underneath covering their legs which made them comfortable I guess and was very helpful to us. I read in some reviews before that the staff there wasn't very accommodating probably because of the what they wore. It was different in our experience. They were very helpful. They even suggested to lower the volume of the music if it pleased us. I guess they noticed that we were having a hard time talking to each other. We also only had to call them once to come to our table. The food is good. The teriyaki mango pizza is really something you will go back for more and I'm sure I will. We also ordered We Found Nemo and loved it! I think I'll try Oyster Overload next time or the Big in Japan because I think I had too little red meat this time around. It's a resto that I wish would be around for a long time for whenever I have that Japanese fusion cravings again. Will definitely come back :)

Not really fond of Japanese food but this one is really a treat! Loved the Dynamite and Venetian Rolls (ordered 2 of the Dynamite). Wagyu Bacon Rice is oily but really satisfying. Don't forget to order the Tofu Steak too.

Pricey food along with Poor service

When the resto first opened a few years back, the aura was upbeat, different and reception was warm.

Now I dined with family again (today) expecting the same experience but disappointed.

Employees doesn't seem to be the same, it is as if their not happy with what they're doing and their service is based on the outlook of your status in life.

I don't mind the price, but when you feel the discriminated, I'm just not happy, b'coz btw, I'm paying for food, it's not free even for the service, they do have a service charge.

So to the management, teach your employees to SMILE a bit and leave their problems at home.

Japanese Ingredient Hate-Crime

1

What happens when a filipino chef prepares a Japanese dish? Disaster.

One of the most sacrilegious thing to do to an ingredient famed for its flavor and texture is to prepare it without enhancing those flavors.

I ordered the Crunchy tuna roll and wagyu bacon rice. I expected much from those 2 items (Tuna and Wagyu) because they are basically common ingredients in japanese menus - a skilled chef should be able to raise the dead using those ingredients.

Unfortunately, who ever conceptualized the menu intends to bastardize japanese cuisine. My suspect is that it's not really a japanese chef who prepared the menu or perhaps some arm twisting was done by the filipino owners.

What came out of the kitchen was just a big disappointment. The Crunchy tuna roll is basically tuna sushi showered with a HUGE amount of mayonnaise and topped with tempura flakes (the crunchy flour parts only). I could barely savor the sweetness of the fresh tuna, which is a waste of good fish.

And the wagyu - brings tears to my eyes! If you prepare wagyu and season it to taste like bacon, I think the cow who sacrificed his life would haunt the chef who prepared the dish. The beef was chopped so tiny such that it does not retain the smooth and soft texture of wagyu beef upon pan frying it. The bacon bits are even sliced bigger than the wagyu. I think this expensive rice (300+) is intended to be as a fried rice. Do not be misled because it's served in a bowl good for 1. The rice in that wagyu bacon rice was not even japanese rice, just your plain unbroken rice. The difference between the 2 becomes apparent because it's easier to pick up the bigger and rounder japanese rice from plain rice.

If you come here alone, fear not, for their trusty house fly shall accompany thee! I thoroughly dislike the ambiance, it's not romantic but rather shady. They even try to light some candles which is futile. I guess I should commend the interior decorator for keeping in mind the high electricity costs. They must have saved thousands of pesos from the poor lighting.

My total bill came to around 800+, including the papaya shake. For fried rice, ice shake and some tuna smeared with mayonnaise. It's a complete waste of money. You can get better food in little tokyo for 1/4 of that price, prepared by a japanese chef.
