Great place to spend time for a dinner. Japanese food seated around a table where peoples cooking in front of you and joke with their instruments. Very attractive and the food is good from shrimp to chicken ... The price is medium and enclose food and scenography !

My husband & I visited Inoko's when we were in school at UGA 20 years ago & loved the place. We returned this weekend with both of our daughters and nothing has changed, and I mean nothing! The place needs an update and a thorough cleaning. There was a strange smell that meets you at the door. The hibachi hoods... More

Made reservations for 7 people- we were Seated on time but took 30 minutes to START cooking??? Place was not busy- good food (enough sodium for 3 days...). Do not go if you have plans afterward.. Pushy about rushing you out - we were asked if we wanted to go boxes 10 minutes after food was plated...

Besides having to wait 25 minutes to be seated in a mostly empty restaurant, service was very good here. Our waitress was very attentive and our chef was entertaining and interacted well with the kids, who had a great time. The food was well cooked, but bland and boring (frozen veggies) and the hot sauce for the spicy teryaki was... More

One of my favorite places to eat when visiting Athens. The building itself is old and dim-lit, but the food is worth it. It's a typical hibachi experience, that is dinner with a show, but that doesn't mean it's bland. The food is great, kinda pricey but worth it.

Food is very good and they give you plenty. I enjoy the filet mignon, fried rice and yellow sauce, It is a hit or miss on the chef but overall It was great.

Called ahead...asked for 6:30 or 7:00...told to come at 6:30 as there were plenty of reservations left at that time. Turns out they don't treat you any different from a walk-in. 7:22 and still no sign of a hostess wanting to seat us. The tip will reflect this abusive treatment. Where's the manager? Where is the complimentary cocktail? I thought... More

We went here after a bad experience elsewhere in town. What. Great turnaround. The servers were patient with us as we asked A 100 questions and took forever to make a decision. Went with the Chet's choice no eel and enjoyed every bite. Atmosphere might need a refresh but the health score was very good. The crowd tells the story!

5 of us went on a business dinner, it cost about $100, so I would say it was inexpensive considering the quality of the food. All the restaurant employees were friendly. I can't comment on the restrooms as none of us used them. There was plenty of food and everyone enjoyed their meal. The shrimp was especially tasty. We did... More
