Our recent dine at Gojo's left us kind of underwhelmed. The food tasted good but the steak was a little tough. Not particularly entertaining. The place is showing its age. I would consider trying the places in Overland Park and Lenexa before I return there....More

This restaurant is so much fun! Food is cooked and served at Hibachi tables. It is a really fun place to go with family or friends! The food is very good and reasonably priced! We will definitely go back!

Good for kids to see, but for entertainment, it sucked. The food was good--except the crab. Skip it. The chef had no patter, no entertainment. Other than throwing a shrimp in everyone's mouth and setting the meal on fire (once). It was nothing like I've...More
