Place was pretty empty when we were there. Aside from us, a couple of other diners.

Ordering process is straightforward. You tick your options off a form and go to the counter to pay. The bowl too about 5 mins to be assembled and was nicely presented.

There's not much rice, so it's good for people looking to cut back. Salmon and tuna were nicely cut, bite sized pieces. The scallops were juicy, had a nice bite. There's lots of salad greens in the bowl. Dressing isn't too heavy. Helps prevent you from getting sick of eating it.

There's a special menu for those using the burpple 1 for 1.

There's the grilled prawn, salad, iced green tea and a standard sized Don that you can choose from.

The prawn is really nice. Fresh, sweet and slight char taste when you bite into it. Makes me want to finish it, shell and all. Salad arrived chilled, but overly dressed. There was enough sesame dressing left for my Don.

The Don is well presented, nicely stacked. Sauce isn't too overwhelming, which is a plus. It allows the individual flavours of the various sashimi to come through. The rice isn't that fantastic, but the focus is mostly on the sashimi. The wasabi is of the tube variety, so nothing to rave about. There's a large sheet of seaweed, so I guess you can do a handroll if you want to?

Good ambience though think it can get cramped if it's full. There isn't alot of space to move about.

First time at Man Man. Service was quick, not intrusive. Most of what you need is on the table. Extra sauces, wet towels etc. They provide 2 sauces, normal.and spicy. Both sauces are rather thick and it's a nice feeling when you can drizzle as much as you want over your food.

Unagi is freshly grilled, not as fatty as others I've had. The rice is of a standard that you expect. Each grain is distinct and the rice has a nice mouth feel when you eat. They provide fresh wasabi root and a grater for you. It's a nice touch, if you consider the cost of 1 root of wasabi. The wasabi is fresh and complements the rice nicely. It's not the pungent / spicy taste that you get from eating the usual sushi wasabi. The wasabi also helps to clean the palate so that u dont get sick of eating the rice with the sauce.

The other condiments are okay, nothing outstanding.
