My son and I went looking for a new spot to eat in Yokosuka. Had to walk around for quite some time. Ryoubi is a yakiniku restaurant that replaced something called "Daddy's Kitchen" that I had never gotten around to reviewing. We decided to try it.
The people were friendly enough, though the menu is all in Japanese. I ordered for us mostly. Got some beef dishes, some pork, two soups. I had a couple of drinks, he had a coke. I think I ordered a couple more meat dishes later. It was all pretty normal for yakiniku, nothing special.
We went up to pay and I expected something like 40 or 50 thousand yen. Instead it was 10,200! I was a bit taken aback, and there was no itemized bill. Not wanting to make a stink I paid, but I think I may have had my one and only (so far) instance of being taken advantage of. I'm not 100% sure, but as I think back on what we ordered it's really hard for me to believe it added up to $90+. Oh well, definitely drops this place from an Ok to a Not Great rating in my mind at least.
