Takaoka of Japan is best enjoyed with a group of 4 or more - tables sit 8-10, and having a table of friends makes the experience fun. The chef we had had some neat hibachi tricks, but wasn't overly entertaining. His skill was definitely seen in the food, though. Steak, shrimp, and salmon cooked to perfection. Seasoning was perfect.

We took our son there for his 20th birthday! We enjoyed having our food cooked at our table and all the entertaining tricks of the chef! We all had steak and shrimp, which was very good! The place is a little small, so you definitely would want to have reservations

Teppenyaki where you can walk in as a couple and get seated with six other people, which is nice because where I usually go for teppenyaki you need to book in advance and put together a large group. Excellent food.

Good midrange establishment for special occasions. The chefs are skilled at cooking and entertaining. Food is well prepared and the prices are reasonable for what you get.

This is our favorite place to come for a nice dinner. We came here recently for our anniversary but have come several times before. It's upstairs and somewhat small (definitely make a reservation). They cook at your table which is very fun and enjoyable. We've had the chef who wears an American flag chef hat a couple times. He's really... More

My husband and I visited for my birthday this past Saturday. Much of the experience depends on the people at your table and the chef. We've had really good chefs (funny, entertaining) and mediocre (just make the food, don't engage.) Our chef this visit was somewhere in between. There were two little girls celebrating birthdays at our table, so it... More

Your food is cooked right on the tabletop by wildly entertaining Chefs. Everyone has a smile on their face while the food isbeing cooked for you. The vegetable stir fry and the Teriyaki are to die for. I always recomment this place to out of towners.
