We have a new favorite Japanese Restaurant in town! After my recent visit at Hodai Restaurant about a week ago, I just can’t wait to write a review about my experience. I’ve been imagining their unlimited sushi and noodles, tempura and grilled meat, ice cream and salad, and I can’t wait to come back here and satisfy my cravings with Japanese food.
Tell you honestly, I’ve never been a fan of Japanese dish before. I would only eat selected Japanese food like sushis and ramen noodles and that’s it – no more Japanese food for me. I’ve been biased for Korean dish ever since that’s why I never focused on Japanese food before. Until I came across this unlimited Japanese fusion restaurant in Queozon City and it seems like the tables have turned!
How to get there
Just find your way to any MRT station and get off at Quezon Avenue Station. From there, you can walk going to Hodai Restaurant for 17-20 minutes. Walk towards Quezon Avenue and turn right to Examiner street. The restaurant is in front of a Monterrey Meat shop.
Address: 14 Examiner, Lungsod Quezon, Kalakhang Maynila
Hodai Japanese Restaurant
The Restaurant’s main objective is to provide an affordable all-you-can-eat twist on the current Japanese food market without the sacrifice of quality, taste, and venue to share a feast with your loved ones.
Last 20th of May, I got invited here to make an honest review about the newly opened Japanese Restaurant and as a food blogger, cleanliness and orderliness is my first point of reference. When we talk about food, we always tend to be critic not only about the food itself but also the appearance of the restaurant. What happens in the dining area reflects on how the food is prepared. And I only noticed a tidy restaurant so good job staff and crew of Hodai Restaurant! You did great on this one.
While me and my friends were waiting for our food (which was by the way made per order straight from the kitchen), I remembered when the restaurant owner Ms. Sam told us that “hodai” means all-you-can-eat. And in my opinion, I think that the name perfectly suits the modern buffet-stylled setting of the restaurant.
