We are glad to have found Fuji and we have been coming here since 2009. Our kids have been eating here since they were born and if you can get one of the low tables (can't remember the proper name), then you will have a nice, cozy meal with your family. Great for parties and reasonably priced.

It's a good hibachi steakhouse. The food was very good and the cooks are what you would expect. The other staff could be a little friendlier but you go for the show and food, so give it a shot you won't be disappointed! BYOB

The service could have been more attentive. To get water we had to wait over 15 minutes to get someone's attention. I found the soup to be a bit weak in flavor. I liked the shrimp and spicy tuna roll.

Me an my girlfriend thought we would try a new hibachi place first off it's two people we wanted to sit at the grill for the entertainment but they want to sit you next to another family. NOONE wants to go out for dinner and sit with another family anywhere you have multiple grills the same amount of gas needs... More

This is a great Japanese restaurant. The food is excellent, the wait-times are minimum and the atmosphere is just right. Good place for birthdays. BYOB. Lunch items are just as good as dinner, only they cost less!

Loved their hibachi show. All the food was cooked well. The chef and all servers were very friendly, outgoing and polite. Can't wait to go back for more.

I say reliable, because the Japanese restaurants in Forked River tend to close & open often with "new management", and you don't want to fool around when it comes to raw fish. Fuji has always had fantastic rolls, and the appetizers are always tasty. I haven't had the hibachi, but hear great things from friends and there's always a wait... More

Wasn't all that for the first time having it. Neither was this place. Sushi was fresh and service was fast but the experience was like any other sushi place. Prices were comparable too. And i don't understand why they don't also have unsweetened ice tea. That is the easiest to make of all teas.

I have been here several times. However, while the food is good you always feel very rushed and dessert is never offered, just the check in handed to you so you can get out for the next set of people. Staff is not friendly at all and either is the hostess.
