The wait time is what led me to the Average review. The food was amazing after you finally get seated. The servers can get mixed up sometimes because of the communication barriers.

Had a reservation for 1pm and was finally seated 30 minutes later. Never provided a refill on drinks. The hibachi chef was entertaining. The shrimp and chicken had a good flavor but the steak was bland.
