Best hibachi restaurant I've dined and I haven't been a fan in the past. Great family dining experience. Had the seafood hibachi and sushi. Both were superb. As we ate my wife and I were looking at each other as we took every bite. The food was that food. Will be returning again soon.

My family was visiting our daughter at UCF and this place was a nightmare. We specifically asked for wait staff familiar with food allergies and they sent us a clueless waitress. Cross contamination can be life threatening and multiple staff members did not realize flour was gluten. The gluten free soy sauce was horrible and full of chemicals bc I... More

We went here on Labor Day weekend to celebrate a family member's birthday. The reservation was for 5:30, we got seated at 5:45, we had our food orders taken at 6:30, and finally got our first course (soup) around 6:45. While we were waiting for our food, it took 20 minutes just to get a water glass refilled. Avoid this... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We were informed that it would be a wait time of 10-15 minutes. It ended up being less than 10. Service was outstanding. Andy was our server and David was our chef. Andy was on top of our every need and David really made the dinner he prepared in front of us a lot... More

My husband wanted beef and I love sushi, so this restaurant at 11609 E Colonial Drive, right around the corner from our hotel, seemed a perfect choice. Well, you can't hit the jackpot every time. We were both disappointed. The sushi was mediocre - I am positive at least the tuna had been previously frozen - the consistency was way... More

Nice place...decided to do the traditional seating for privacy but found our that none of the specials apply to traditional seating ( i.e. early bird specials, or any other specials they have at the time). So, that was a bomber. However, did was good.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. We were seated in five minutes with three other couples. Our meal started promptly after our drinks arrived. Everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. I ordered the beef,chicken and shrimp combo(too much food)! My husband ordered the seafood combo, so there were leftovers for the next day. For something different and free entertainment, I... More

The best thing I can say about this restaurant is that the portions are large and the food is often tasty. In general, the chefs do a skillful job. Some of them can be entertaining. However... Some of the chefs go out of their way to be funny. As a fan of humor, I am okay with that. However, I... More

My husband and I went there for my birthday last week. We didn't have to wait long to be seated, maybe 10 minutes if that. The waitress came right away to take our drink and food orders. We had Chef Murano. Let me tell you, I've seen all the cheesy things these chefs say and do, but this guy was... More
