The Steak House Hibachi grill was not available for lunch. They offered a tasty but limited buffet or you could order from the menu. There was nothing special about the buffet and the orange chicken was too spicy for my wife. The noodles were very good. The shrimp was coated with a flavorable sauce but were in their shells. With... More

The hibachi chef cooked our food perfectly. Very entertaining and a great place to socialize with friends.

My family and I have been having brunch here and have actually become regulars since hearing about the brunch buffet. It actually saddens me to have to write this review, but we will not come back. The food is great, the service is pretty decent too, but what really is disappointed about the place is the lack of cleanness. The... More

This was the worst dining experience I have ever had in any city. The service was slow, took 45 minutes to get a chef out to cook the hibachi, and they sent one chef for two tables serving 24 guests. Fried rice burnt, vegetables still raw, and our grill was set on fire and then left to burn...this rancid burning... More

A employee told me the kitchen was as dirty as the restrooms. This employee quit after one day on the job because of the filth in the kitchen and the... More

I went there the first time last night and everything was simply horrible. The waitress had way too many tables and one couple finally left after waiting 15mins for a drink. The cook was just plain grumpy and rude. We all left with soy sauce stains on our shirts because it threw the fried rice on our plates. I know... More

Came here a few times. The prices are high. The service is ok. The food was cold. The salad dressing tasted off. The rolls did taste good but they were made sloppy. I do not recommend this place. Not what it used to be. Probably not gonna go back. The building needs a major renovation.

Went here with my daughter for her birthday. The sushi lunch deal is awesome. Amazing variety and just as good or better than many in the area. Service was impeccable. We stayed longer than anticipated, so we were there till the end of lunch hours. We didn't feel rushed. Love the playful atmosphere with all of the toy figures on... More
