Food was excellent, menu selection somewhat limited, but very good quality. The experience is great for large groups. I was very impressed with Japanese Village. Teppanyaki was trendy in the 70s so for North Americans maybe a "seasoned" dining concept but it is one that...More

First time going to Japanese Village Restaurant. Teppanyaki Grill dinner was delicious. It's a great place for couples, families and groups. Restaurant décor was beautiful, too.

We've been coming here about once a year, it's a fun dining option as a group! The steak is consistently good but I noticed this time, the menu seemed pared down and I was disappointed there was no soup. The meal was tasty, but somehow...More
