Did the early bird special at the hibachi grill. Great show and very good show. We enjoyed our dinner.

Having food served to you that's been cooked on the grill top is more amazing than you could imagine. The prices, whether its for the main entrees or the rolls/appetizers is pretty much what you'd expect. They offer a dinner for two during a certain time period or if you prefer you can just for lunch! The chefs are entertaining... More

We made reservations here on Valentine's day and it lived up to every bit of the hype! I think our favorites were the Holland Roll and the Crazy Dragon?! It was jammed packed so you may want to consider reservations, but I thought the prices were acceptable and we had a great time considering how busy they were. If you... More

My husband and I eat here once every two weeks. They have a special if you come in before 5:30 in the winter and 6:30 in the summer, you can get two hibachi meals for 19.95. Hard deal to beat, when you just don't feel like cooking, although the 5:30 deadline is difficult to meet. The fried rice is the... More

Order off the menu. The hibachi food is mediocre and not very seasoned. Do the hibachi if you want a show. Otherwise order off the menu. The seaweed salad was great as were the pork dumplings and the mochi icecream was interesting to try once. The chicken, shrimp, pineapple fried rice was very under seasoned and had no vegetable crunch... More

I've only been there for sushi so I can't comment on the hibachi offerings, but the sushi is outstanding. The place itself is huge so it's pretty easy to get in without a reservation. The service is excellent and the staff is extremely friendly. It's a fun place and kids are welcome.

The food was prepared before you on hibachi grills, the chefs were very entertaining and crowd curteous....this is a great place to bring a group of people or a family event as kids would find the cooking very entertaining...quality was great for the price

Filthy restaurant. Food cheapened for an American crowd. A Japanese restaurant that has duplicated the Chinese restaurant strategy without the reliable take-out.

The food was good. I ordered the Shrimp and Filet (medium rare) and it was cooked correctly. The cook wasn't as animated as some I have seen. I chose the Hibachi grill rather than a table so I could be entertained by the cook but he was just following his routine and seemed bored.
