This is probably the best hibachi-style restaurant in Roanoke. The entire meal is prepared in front of you, so everything is fresh. We recently celebrated a birthday there with family and friends. The menu offers steak, shrimp, chicken, pork. Additionally there is a sizeable sushi...More

It's worth the wait and making a reservation is the secret. My teenagers love to catch shrimp in their mouths during the hibachi chef show. Sushi on Thursday is just $1 and the other sushi specials are very tastey!

Attractive hibachi style restaurant with very friendly service and some weeknight specials. Our kids, ages 3 and 7, were fascinated and part of a mainly adult group. Call ahead for reservations on weekends. Sushi also available.

Came here on a Friday evening. Not a wait at all for the dine-in area. We were in a crunch for time so the dine-in option without the hibachi show was a great option. Our waitress was super friendly and quick. When we asked for...More

My wife and I have always loved eating here, but the last time we went the waitress was very rude. In fact, she's never been that nice to us. This past time, however, we ordered and when we were finished, she slammed our menus and...More
