Had 9 people for my Birthday dinner last week and we had a blast. Our chef was fun and kept us entertained the entire time. We had the filet, lobster, shrimp and scallops. Everything was tasty. Bring a flashlight because the parking lot is dark.

Very good Japanese food for Americans. The Teppanaki grills are bust with groups having lots of fun. Excellent hostess and table service staff. Sushi bar too bright for me but clean and large. Outside needs some attention (weeds) - to complement clean food inside.

When we made reservations we assumed we would be at one of the hibachi tables, but they didn't have room so we were seated at a regular table. The food really was mediocre and the price was extremely high.

We went in for the first time to the new location, the place looked great and was very clean, the sushi bar was set up well and the staff was great. Tried some new things and some old will be back again soon.

Surprising find in Prescott. They moved locations and quadrupled the size. At first had some growing pains with service. Now they have it right! Fresh fish comes in on Thursday so plan accordingly. We usually sit at the sushi bar and have never been disappointed....More
