If you want to experience how it is to go to a loud rock concert, this is the place to go. Due to the decibel level of surrounding parties, who have to yell out every word they use, I had a difficult time understanding what the hostess was saying. This led to a key component of my meal order being... More

We do provide a fun-filled atmosphere that can become quite boisterous at times, so we are sorry it was not to your liking when you dined with us. Your kind compliments for our Hibachi Shrimp are appreciated, Jim, but we are saddened that you did not receive the fried rice you enjoy, as our chefs make every effort to communicate... More

The food was great as well as the atmosphere. They have a nice little aquarium setup as well as large screen TV for the sports minded.

The first two times we went to this restaurant, we did not think it was anything special, but the third time we decided to try the unusual rolls that our friends had enjoyed on our previous visit, namely the Obama Roll, Ryan’s Roll and Joel’s Roll. The latter two were specialties of the sushi chefs. All three are a bit... More

The restaurant was located adjacent to the hotel we were staying at. We ordered their half price sushi rolls. They were just basic rolls but enjoyed them. Their full price rolls were the more creative types. In our community, when you order half price rolls, they are the more creative ones which are reduced in price. Overall, it was good

Sushi and Hibachi place which is cool. Sat at the Hibachi table and ordered two sushi rolls. Service was a bit slow. Not sure if it was just that night but they had a singer that was a bit annoying. Looks like they had some kind of birthday party going on but he was loud! Also there were two girls... More

The place is a bit dark and reminds a sport bar, but its nice to sit at the sushi-bar & watch the talented sushimen prepare their art. They serve very fresh, tasty and quite large portions of sushi & sashimi as well as some salads & hot dishes. Its not a romantic place, but nice to go with family &... More

I came in with just myself and one other person for Tipan. I was told there was a 15 minute way....but clearly, no one else was there. There were two parties already seated and eating, but no one was waiting to be seated. We waited about 15 minutes only to be told that we'd have to wait for other people... More

As soon as I walked in, I could tell that something was fishy. Maybe it was the layout or the fact that there were no visible Japanese in the restaurant. My suspicions were confirmed when the waiter asked us if we wanted eel sauce on our spicy tuna on crispy rice. No, I would not want that, no he asked?... More
