I was, originally, introduced to this place a few months ago. At that time, I was impressed with the service and the quality of the food. I am, what most people have stated, a waste to a buffet. So, the smaller meal options were perfect for me.
Recently, I revisited this quaint little Japanese restaurant to evaluate if my first experience was as good as I remembered it to be. Although we made a booking for inside, we decided to opt for an outside table where we could feel a cool wind that took the edge off the heat.

As a Pescatarian (a person who adds fish to their vegetarian diet), I ordered the salmon and avocado roll and creamy croquette. The rest of the table ordered the spicy tuna roll, Crunchy Salad, Bao Bae and Otaku Fries.

The part I enjoyed the most, although the food was out of this world, was the fact that we could use the plates provided and shared the items we ordered. This created a new topic of conversation as we compared notes on what was the best item from our order. Notably, we all had a different opinion but the creamy croquettes had received high accolades.

The Modern Eatery is open over lunch and dinner. It is recommended to book ahead on time. Notably, bookings are generally applied to inside tables, however, they sometimes book tables outside, if it is busy. Outside tables are required to pay for items before cooking. I can only suspect that some people have taken the chance to eat and run.
Overall, I walked away with high recommendations. It is one thing to have a good experience the first time. It is a completely different thing to experience the same quality of food, and service, the second time around. The Modern Eatery was able to do just that.
