You can get your typical Hibachi/Sushi here. I ordered the salmon roe sushi, but they brought regular salmon, which made the wait a little long. Easy mistake, though. It's not the best Japanese cuisine in town, but you can get dinner with a bit of...More

I’ve been to many Japanese hibachi steakhouses, but none quite like this place. By far the most original and entertaining chef performance I’ve seen. It’s the only time I’ve seen a tableside audience of seniors, adults, teens, and little kids all genuinely laughing and enjoying...More

There were about 21 of us that wanted to get together to celebrate our family finally being all together. They managed to seat us around the hibachi table. Food was great. The kids had a good time to remember together and so did the adults....More

We go here about once each month. Pleasant wait staff. Food is always prompt, hot and flavorful. Good place for kids or groups also.

Was told the wait would be 15 - 20 minutes. 40 minutes later and still waiting. Hostess said we will clean the tables and sit you as soon as people finish and get up. That was an obvious statement!

I've dined at Fujiyama several times and have always had excellent food. The tempura is absolutely perfect and one of my favorite dishes. I've also tried some of their sushi and been extremely pleased, even as picky as I am about sushi. I've done the...More
