The food was OK. The waitress didn't speak very good English. She made a mistake with our order and they were not very good about it.

We were celebrating a couple of birthdays a couple of months ago so one of my siblings decided to go to this place. I've always liked Japanese food and I was curious to see if the place has changed since the last time I went which was several years ago. Being a weekend, the place was busy and very noisy.... More

I've been here twice and love the show they put on while preparing the meal. They're extra friendly and the food is superb!! If you park under the delta hotel you can bring up your parking ticket and they will stamp it so you don't have to pay for parking. It's especially handy if the weather is bad. You simply... More

We were celebrating a couple of birthdays and were a table of 8. It was a tight squeeze around the tepanyaki grill, even though 2 youngsters were part of the group. Our group had combination menus, including lobster. This is not the best way to have lobster...overcooked. The scallops, shrimp, filet and chicken were much better. The kids were impressed... More

You know there is something wrong when a restaurant a block away from the MTS Centre is nearly empty on a night when the Jets are playing. There was no one in the teppanyaki section and only a handful of people in the sushi section. We've tried this place a number of times and they also seem to come up... More

Many years have passed since I last visited and yet I swear, not a single thing has changed. We were greeted by a kimono wrapped hostess and accompanied to a communal table, surrounding a grill top. Being the last to arrive, we might have felt as if we were crashing a party, but true to Winnipeg form, we were warmly... More

We sat in the Sushi section since the other areas were late bookings. Hiromi was the Sushi Chef and very accommodating even though we were sitting at a table and not the Sushi Bar. We ordered the Filet/Shrimp, and the Filet/Chicken….side of the fried rice which was average, chicken livers which were bland, couple sushi items that were….ok. Sorry, spoiled... More
