Rice and side dishes all come in massive quantities, so much so that most people will order them in mini-size. As a matter of fact, the amount of rice shown in the photo is actually only 1/10 of the usual serving! Of course, the quantity is accompanied by great quality, and the Japanese-style food will certainly keep you satisfied for the next few hours.
