When Ginja Japanese Restaurant was one of the only Japanese restaurants in Dalton, my family and I would go occasionally. However, due to the change in atmosphere we do not frequent this restaurant anymore. The location is not the best and the restaurant itself does not always look clean. The food was good and service was alright, but the atmosphere in general brought down the whole experience. There are definitely better Japanese restaurants in Dalton.
I went to Ru-San's Japanese Restaurant in Rome for the first time last weekend. The food was excellent, but the service was pretty slow; we had a late dinner and the restaurant was not very busy. In the past, when visiting other Ru-San's Restaurants, I have not had a good experience when it comes to customer service. Although my visit to Rome's location was far better than before, it could still use some improvement.
Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse is a great Japanese restaurant between Calhoun and Atlanta. I spend a lot of time in Calhoun and we tend to eat in Cartersville frequently. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is always friendly. Although they do not offer as much of a selection as other Japanese restaurants (such as Fuji in Dalton), it's a great place to eat when in Cartersville. I would definitely recommend it!
Fuji Japanese Steakhouse is definitely my favorite Japanese restaurant!! It's new to Dalton and is so clean and modern! It has a great atmosphere! They have more menu items than most other Japanese restaurants (they serve noodles AND rice) and also serve really large portions... great for sharing!
Kani Japanese Steak House is a great place for a dinner date or a night out. The service is fast and the atmosphere is clean. They offer many sushi options and for those of you who do not like ginger dressing, the also offer ranch (since I don't like ginger, this is a big deal to me).
I visited Tulipano for the first time this week! It was such a great shopping experience; I will definitely return soon! They have all the latest women's fashions and excellent customer service! I attended a trunk show at Tulipano and got to meet a well-known designer and see her new winter line. I would definitely recommend shopping here!
Van Michael Salon is a high-end salon with excellent customer service! For years I traveled from North Georgia to Atlanta just to go to Van Michael. Now that I live in Atlanta, it makes it so much easier! They are always willing to work with my schedule and want to make sure that I am completely satisfied. Van Michael is an Aveda Salon, so they have wonderful products and great service. I shop here for hair products, make-up, and gifts.
Sweet Pockets Cupcakes is such a great little bakery!! The service is great and the cupcakes are delicious!! They also take pride in and support their community. As a member of the Junior League of Atlanta, I called Sweet Pockets to ask for their help with a fundraiser and they were so willing to help! I would definitely recommend them!
Island Pursuit is such a great shop! It is located in St. Armands Circle in Sarasota, FL. They have so many wonderful pieces of clothing and really great brands, such as Martha's Vineyard. This store is so much fun! There are two different "Island Pursuit" stores, one for women and one for men. Both are great.
Every time we go to Sarasota we always stop by Island Pursuit. I have purchased numerous items from here for my boyfriend. They have great clothes, shoes, and sunglasses, which are perfect for him for when he plays golf.
