We visited this place, as well as the one in the WEIZMANN CENTER and saw similar problems.
The staff is helpful, the location is not that bad but (and now it starts) nothing is clean, nothing gets cleaned and it looks just very unhealthy.
When looking at the chef preparing the food, he knows what he's doing, but everything around him is dirty. Food parts on the wall, drawers that are dirty, the works.
Sushi requires, especially sushi since it's most often prepared with fish, a spotless location. Every manager should be able to achieve this.
What the problem was though, as we saw in both restaurants from River, is that the people being put in charge are too young and most probably lack the expertise.
And yes, we think the owners just do the care since people come anyhow.
Looking for sushi, or let's rephrase, 'looking for good sushi, in a clean restaurant with knowledgeable staff?'..... Go to another place and simply skip the RIVER NOODLES BAR restaurants!
