My husband and I like to take the kids to this restaurant every once in awhile. It's kind of expensive but the food and hibaci show are very good. If you go to this restaurant you will not be let down.

We were very rushed. There was very little entertainment. I've never been in and out of a Japanese restaurant in less than an hour. From sit to check, it was less than 45 minutes. At $100 for 2 people, it was definitely not worth it. I order the filet medium and my sister ordered the filet medium well. Both were... More

The food here was outstanding but totally rushed. 10 people sat down for dinner at 6:20 and completely done by 7:10 and presented with check immediately and it was way to rushed. It's a Monday night and made reservations for a Monday so would not be rushed and no reason for it because there were only 2 other tables cannot... More

We loved this place! The food was great and our cook was a blast with a great sense of humor. Everyone had their fill of sake. Best to go with many friends.

We went to Kyoto to celebrate my nephew's 10th birthday. We were seated at a Hibachi table with 4 other adults. After being served our drinks and our orders taken, we were quickly served our soup and salad. ( It was very fast and I wish they would have given us a little more time to finish our soup before...

Went there on Graduation weekend and it was packed. We had reservations and family in Buffalo come here often. Food was good but service was a bit slow. Tough time getting drinks replenished. Other then that food was good.

The sushi & sashimi combo was delicious & very fresh; the hibachi shrimp, chicken & scallop dinners were the same. The service was attentive, but not overly so. None of us had room for any desserts, although some sounded interesting & fun. Next time...
