Mappen is located where the old KFC used to be before Westfield moved in. It is the first business that has been successful in this location since KFC. Mappen gets people in by its low prices. The food quality at Mappen isn't bad and overall I actually quite like Mappen.
The one major gripe however I have with Mappen is their take-away policy. They charge 20 cents per take-away container. Now I understand if you originally say you eat in, and then you decide to take-away later because you changed your mind or couldn't finish your meal, and then they charge you that additional amount, that's fair. Also, if you ordered one serving and wanted two containers or something along those lines, I understand that too. However Mappen charges you 20 cents even if you simply want to take-away. You're a restaurant business, not a food container business. I mean seriously? This just puts me off the entire place.
I get the impression Mappen lures people in with their seemingly low prices then along the way before the final total gets tallied, random charges are added along the way. It just rubs me the wrong way. I like it when a business, any business, be it restaurant or any other is honourable and fair.
Anyway, on to the food
|Stewed Beef on Hot Crushed Tofu (medium $6.90)|
|Teriyaki Salmon on Rice (medium $6.50)|
|Kake Soba Medium $3.90|
|Teriyaki Chicken Salad Small $3.60|
This salad wasn't bad, a bit overloaded with dressing - probably because it was so mini. A bit of mixed lettuce, some Japanese cabbage salad, dressing and corn.
|Fried Chicken ($3.50) Takoyaki ($2.50) Sweet Potato ($1)|
- Decent food for the price
- Not entirely ethical business unfortunately
