Tao Zheng recently purchased the popular restaurant at 818 Roosevelt Trail and immediately set out to win the hearts and minds of diners by upgrading quality of the authentic Japanese sushi and hibachi dishes served at Eagle Japanese Sushi & Steak House, but also by focusing on providing attentive and courteous customer service to everyone who visits the restaurant.
“We pay more attention to the freshness of the food, the quality of the food, and the taste of the food itself, and strive to bring good food to everyone,” Zheng said. “We also focus on service.”
Open for two months under Zheng’s direction, Eagle Japanese Sushi & Steak House has six employees and has upgraded many meals offered on the menu by using higher quality products and fish.
“I can bring you food that I think is better,” Zheng said. “When I first took over this restaurant, I made a lot of changes compared to the previous owner, such as the menu, the quality of the food, and canceled some of the previous food, which caused many people to not accept it.”
He said that currently patrons have identified Crab Rangoons, Vegetable Spring Rolls, Ayoza, Rock Shrimp, Sushi and Sashimi, and Japanese Teriyaki as among some of the most popular meals that the restaurant prepares.
“We have made a lot of changes whether it was the food itself or the environment at the restaurant, we are all different,” Zheng said. “I will often hear people say that the food in our restaurant is better than before. It will be a little more expensive than before, but everyone thinks it is worth it because we use the best fish to do sushi.”
Customers that have visited recently have nothing but positive
things to say. One customer wrote a google review which said, “Amazing staff,
delicious food! The quality of the food is second to none. Extremely friendly
service, and fast preparation of items. The ingredients are fresh and made to
order. Would absolutely recommend this place. A hidden gem!”
Another patron raved about the food and service saying, “This fried rice is perfect, this ice cream is also beautiful, what’s more, the service is awesome. I will be back!”
According to Zheng, the restaurant’s menu features classic rolls which include six pieces per order and mouth-watering delicacies such as Super White Tuna; Spicy Crunchy Crab; Yellowtail Scallion; Eel Avocado; Shrimp Cucumber and many more.
Sushi Bar starters offer Blackened Tuna; Spicy Tartar Tower; Beef Tataki; Fugi Mountain; Yellowtail Jalapeno; Seafood Ceviche; Crunchy White Tuna; Sunomono; Star Wishes; Sushi Appetizer; Sasimi Appetizer; and Crazy Buffet with four pieces of jalapeno, cheese tuna or salmon deep fried with tobiko, scallions or crunchy.
