Posted in reply to a request. I haven't tried this recipe, though I've had the sauce in Japanese restaurants and it's quite good served on grilled shrimp. I found this on Recipegal.com and the poster there claimed this is just like the original stuff found in restaurants.

You nailed it more or less spot-on, and thank you! I've been using this for a few years now and haven't even bothered to thank you for it. Maybe make sure people know to use "seasoned" rice vinegar, and I skip the butter, but it is way better than my local Japanese steakhouse!

The vinegar came through really strong and i used rice vinegar, not the other. I think next time I will use only 1tbsp of vinegar and use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise so that it is sweeter.
