Made a 5pm reservation, for a party of 9, for my 10year olds birthday. Made the reservation online, a week in advance. At the time of the reservation, in the "comments" box for "special occasions", I added it was her 10th birthday dinner and we wanted the birthday package. 6 of us arrived at 445. We checked in, and I... More

I was greeted with a stare. I said "one please". I was sat with a group of other people in front of a hibachi. I saw there was seats at the sushi bar which is where I ended up moving to thanks to the waitress. She was nice. I was there for the sushi so it made sense. The gentleman... More

We were big supporters of The Japanese Steakhouse on North High Street in Columbus until it closed. Today we found House of Japan in Columbus. Simply put, this is a wonderful Japanese restaurant. Needless to say, we will be coming back to this restaurant. The food was great as well as the service. I'll give House of Japan, two 👍👍.

I was pretty disappointed, I actually love this place. The issue this time was that my server accidentally rang us in for the wrong meal. We got way more food than we requested, the only issue with this is when I brought it to the servers attention, he admitted he made a mistake and brought it to management, they came... More

The feast for one or two is steak, chicken, rice, salad, sprouts, beverage and sherbet. I love that it is cooked in front of me. Great food, great price.

We made reservations for a party of 7 about 3 hours before our arrival time. We arrived to find the lobby full of Homecoming students and angry customers with reservations. They got us in, but 1 hour after our reserved time. This was a lot for 3 small children. They proceeded to squeeze another family at the same table with... More

There was 15 of us so they sat us at two different tables. We were seated very quickly. Our waiter was new and not the best even though he tries. BUT our chef was super, the best!!! The food was good but the best part of the evening was our chef as he was VERY entertaining especially to the children.

This is probably our 7th or 8th time to House of Japan on Polaris. I believe that this was the best time of all of them. We had Malena as our server and Man as our chef and they both performed their jobs perfectly. Melana was available every time that she was needed. She was quick with our orders and... More
