Our server was the best I have ever had. He was personable, and kept us well cared for. Typically at a hibachi style restaurant the server is an afterthought, but ours stood out for his excellent work. Our cook was excellent and catered well to...More

Wow, left the tourist area and went here. Probably the best Hibachi Grill we have ever been too. Staff was super friendly and the Chef was very talented, funny, and of course prepared tasty food.

Food wasn't terrible, but it wasn't particularly good, either. The service was okay, nothing great. It was very noisy--so much so that it was difficult to carry on a conversation, much less enjoy our meal.
