Horrible & they are liars!!! I asked for YumYum sauce to go with my meal, they told me they didn't have any. My sister went last night & she sent me a video of yumyum sauce so the waitress lied! Horrible customer service

Japan Inn is part of a chain, the decor is Japanese, very nice. The staff is good, the restaurant and menu of the chain are very similar. You sit at a Hibachi, order from menu, and the chef entertains with his cooking skills.

Why drive to Coral Springs or Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for the more famous hibachi restaurant, when Japan Inn is better and less expensive? Our meal last night at Japan Inn surprised me, it was very good. Our chef was engaging and personable, and the food was great,...More

I came with my wife the food was ok, the place looks old and uncared for, and I found the place to be over priced ... to be honest for that money I would rather a place at the beach and I didn't like that...More
