Everytime we crave for a Bento box this is the place to go. The Hibachi courses is also good. Service is fast, delicious and prices are reasonable. The servers are courteous, friendly and attentive. Location is good. The restaurant is clean and atmosphere is relaxing.

Japanese Hibachi and Sushi.Large portions, efficient wait staff, chefs with personality. Food was prepared flavorful and delicious. Don't let the location in a strip mall fool you. This place is not pretty on the outside, but once in the door the scene changes dramatically. It is a great place for families.

You have a good chance to ruin your planned event or dining experience if you plan on going to Mei Hibachi Steak House, like we did on Valentine's Day. A few parties were already there upon our arrival, including the five of us, with reservations made. First off, the tables were not ready and all of staff: hostesses, servers, busboys were not cheerful, and did... More

Ate here with friends on Valentine's Day. They have an extensive menu but we chose to do Hibachi and we were not disapointed. Mei was very warm welcoming and even allowed us to stay to finish our wine long after we had finished our food. Steak and Lobster hibachi was excellent. The accompanying rice, noodles and veg were deliciously tasty.... More

Went there for my husband's birthday. It was really nice and cozy place. Staff is friendly and the food is good. I just wish our chief spoke better English and had more tricks.

I eat here approximately twice a month, so it's an overall rating. My favorite, the spicy tuna tartar (when the regular chef is working) comes out in a beautiful presentation plate, with designs and pictograms drawn with the sauces. It's lovely to look at, but surpassed by the taste! Avocado and mango form the base, and the tuna is covered... More
