The absolute slowest place ever. Honestly waited over an hour for our food - and we were the ONLY people in the restaurant. They do know that sushi is mostly uncooked fish, right?

If I had to review this place solely based on the Hibachi experience I'd probably have given it at least three stars. The Hibachi grill was pretty standard. The food was OK, not great, and the chef did a nice job with the grill entertainment. Aside from that, this place is awful. The first thing I noticed was how empty... More

The food was great and the chef was entertaining. The server however had major personality issues. We had 2 families dining together and were on separate checks. The waitress was curt and unhelpful. She did the absolute minimum and we had to wait for a long time for anything. We also had separate reservations so thought we could use the... More

Went there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. They took fifteen dollars off his meal but added 18% gratuity to the bill.So I asked to speak to the manager and she said that's the policy,so after I did the math in realty they only took off $1.50 for his meal because the gratuity was $13.50 and the killing part was we...

And probably my last! I've never been to a Japanese steakhouse before so I wasn't sure what to expect. My first clue should have been the cloudy fish tank at the front door. It was a Thursday evening and the place seemed almost empty except for a table of eight. We were seated with another couple. Service was good. The... More

Watching your meal being prepared in front of you is fun, especially when it is tasty! Great atmosphere for a family, couple or solo. Enjoyed everything about the restaurant! Everyone should give hibachi dining a try.

The service was great. Since I sat at the sushi bar I am unable to give any review of the hibachi or dining areas. I got the shrimp tempura roll and it was probably one of the worst choices. The shrimp was previously fried and cold so the roll didn't live up to my expectations ( although the roll was... More

Cheryl, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the shrimp tempura like you should have. With it being a favorite, I know how it can be frustrating whenever it doesn't come out the way you're expecting. This is definitely not the norm for us and is more than likely a one-time thing. As for the half-price menu, we want to offer a... More

We enjoyed our meal here very much since we have eaten authentic Japanese food from independently run local restaurants and found this to be very comparable.

The place is no where near modern and it is not over-cleaned but I have gone there for years and the Hibachi is one of the best around. It's about $23.00 a plate +/- $ 5. Has a sit down area and Hibachi side where they cook in front of you. The sauces that come with the meal and the... More
