Review: Torarenbo Japanese Restaurant

by gigi on August 12, 2007

Jenkins and I went to Torarenbo for lunch the other day. It is located at 8191 Park Rd in Richmond, which is a small street right by Richmond Centre mall. Jenkins found out about this place a few months ago and it has quickly become one of our favourite sushi places in Richmond.

We both ordered lunch boxes, which came with miso soup.

Jenkins had the chicken teriyaki lunch box, which was $7.95. It came with an appetizer-sized tempura, sushi, salad, and fresh fruit. The chicken tempura was crunchy on the outside and went really well with the rice. The tempura even came with 2 pieces of prawn tempura.

I had the tonkatsu lunch box. Let me just say that my tonkatsu pork chop was huge. :) It was very good…juicy on the inside and very crunchy outside. It also came with some tonkatsu sauce and mayo to dip the pork in. The side dishes were the same as the chicken teriyaki. I think this was around $8.50 or $8.95 and was more than enough for lunch. In my opinion, this was more of a dinner-sized portion.

Jenkins and I haven’t tried the other items available here since we are always drawn to the good value of the lunch boxes. The variety of items is pretty much the same as most sushi restaurants but everything is very fresh and tasty. The service is also quite good here. Each table is served their own pot of tea, which is always nice.

Summary:
Food: 4 stars/5
Service: 3 stars/5
Price: $
