My wife and I are staying up in Niagara Falls on the Canadian side to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. Today is our anniversary, and we wanted to go somewhere nice for dinner. We found a card for Suisha Gardens Japanese Restaurant at the tourism desk of our hotel. The card said "Your table is our kitchen". That sounded like fun. On our first Valentines Day together, we went to Benihana’s Of Tokyo back in Seattle. They cooked at our table, and we enjoyed ourselves. So I thought going to a restaurant like that for our anniversary would be fun and romantic. We didn’t know if the restaurant required reservations, or had a dress code. I asked the woman at the tourism desk of our hotel about the restaurant, and whether they had a dress code, or required a reservation. She said no reservations needed, and no dress code. Great!
We got our car, and headed off. The Suisha Gardens card had a little map, plus the lady at the tourism gave us a map. We found our way to the restaurant with no problems. At first I was not sure if we on the right street as it didn’t seem a restaurant would be there. But we saw the sign. We pulled into the parking lot. It was empty. Why was it empty? It was about 5:30pm. I thought maybe it might open a little later? We walked around to the entrance. The sign with the days and times announced they were closed on Mondays. What? What kind of restaurant closes on Mondays? Maybe they could have included this little piece of information on their card? So what sounded like a fun evening, turned into a complete disappointment! Suisha Gardens will be open tomorrow night, but they won’t get our business. We found another restaurant that was actually open on a Monday night.
