The food here is very good, but perhaps a little over priced. The service is hit or miss. Sometimes the cooks put on fairly good "shows" while cooking and other times they hardly do anything. If you like hibachi, you will enjoy this restaurant.

Same thing as several other reviews here. They ruined my wife's birthday. We called for a 6:30 reservation and they took our name, time and number of people. When we arrived, we told them we had a reservation and she said Ok and handed us a buzzer. After waiting and watching others being seated, I went up to inquire and... More

Had a reservation for 12. When we arrived we were told by management they were not honoring reservation and we were turned away. This would have been my 1st visit. Will not be there a second time. Was told that this had happened before to someone else a couple of years earlier. Not a way to keep business

The colorful facade lured me in, The slurred question, "Habachi or sushi?" caught me off guard but allowed me to choose the sushi side of the restaurant. Then, our server offered me a GLUTEN FREE menu with only four or five items. Twice throughout our short dinner, servers marched through with loud drums, indicating a celebration. The food was tasty... More

Been there several times. Last time inferior service. Tonight was ridiculous finally inquired about appetizers. Told us of course they didn't forget. Came back 10 minutes later to ask what we ordered. Watched other customers come and go while we waited. No more chances, Kitaro. We're done.

There is enough diversity to make anyone happy. The menu has basic, routine sushi to more elaborate types that involve lobster and octopus. Bring a large appetite and experiment with the different flavors!
