Temari has always been on the pricey side, but they keep increasing their prices on the menu! Given that the portions have become bigger, I still rather pay normal prices for a normal size meal rather than the 'super-size' Japanese meal. Japanese entrees and 'super-size' just don't go together correctly....
For appetizer, I ordered a onigiri, this was about $3.95. Nothing special.
I ordered the katsu curry rice for entree. It was priced at $15.99! It was bigger portion than before but over-sized Japanese dishes just don't feel/taste the same.

He ordered the ginger pork donburi. It was about 1/3 larger in portion, tasted pretty much the same and had more meat, but also about $3 more than before. This dish was about $13.99.

I'm not sure who decided on their new 'direction' on super sizing all their entrees and prices, but I for one did not appreciate. With 2 entrees and a small appetizer, our dinner bill was about $35 without tip. Pretty pricey for what we ordered! I miss the old Temari with their regular sized entrees and above average pricing (not the expensive menu they have nowadays). On a side note, I guess that's how they upgraded their old CRT TV over the bar to the new flat screen.....
