Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

The salmon at Takara blows away Muramoto's salmon. IMO, Salmon is the litmus test of a sushi joint.

For me, it's mackerel. The one time I went to Takumi, theirs was very fresh – and beautifully presented. Takara is on my list.

You're right, but I normally don't have the guts to try it around here.

Thereby dooming yourself and others to the same fate until someone speaks up or Shinji hisownself sees the poor craftsmanship with his own eyes behind the counter.

Suck it up; say something.

You're right. That also would give them a chance to correct the problem on the spot, and in general is a more adult way of handling my dissatisfaction than drive-by internet slander. It's a problem of mine, and I'm working on it.
