I wanted to give my teenagers the experience of teppanyaki dining. Even so the steak was of absolute excellence, there were no flying shrimp or any kind of show besides one single fire ball. So if you are going for the experience maybe not here.

Round grill-tables allow for a festive dinner, but the food is very pedestrian. Best to get a showman as that adds to the experience. Our cook was sort of grumpy and mixed up some orders. I don't think the menu has changed in 20 years....More

We went there for New Year's Eve. It's a nice Japanese-ish asian-theme ambiance. (except when Johnny cash's cover of "Hurt" came on the radio...great song, terrible dinner music.) The server we had was fantastic, which is why I won't give it a one star. He...More
