We just wanted sushi take out. You have to go in and sit at the bar to order and wait for the food. It's a little awkward, if you don't want a drink! The sushi was very fresh, if a little expensive. We may try again, sitting down next time!?

I have given this restaurant THREE CHANCES! Here's one of my big pet peeves about hibachi places: it's not cheap and your paying for the "experience"... I get it. BUT... If I'm forking out money for the most expensive items on the menu I expect it to be consistent and done right. For all you seafood/shrimp lovers, you will understand... More

We went for a sushi dinner. This was my second visit to the restaurant. The sushi is very good and the service is friendly. There was a lot of noise coming from the side of the restaurant where they cook the food in front of the customers - singing and chants. Made it hard to have a conversation. However, if... More

Booked dinner here for a family of 12. The staff had everything ready upon arrival and we had our own hibachi grill for our party. Lin was our cook and he was amazing. Tons of food tosses and tricks and the sake pours kept coming. The food was amazingly delicious and cooked to perfection. We did have a lot of... More

My friends and I went to Kyoto on Friday for one of the girl's 21st birthdays. All of us were over 21. We were ID'd at the door, and then the manager came over and ID'd us again. The person manning our table refused to give anyone at our table sake. He said "maybe tomorrow". We asked to speak to... More

I eat sushi quite often and have tried many restaurants throughout the country. I would rate this restaurant as average for service and decor and a bit below average for the sushi. The service was pleasant, efficient and fast. I found the booth seating to be uncomfortable and the staff was accommodating to allow me to switch to a conventional... More

Went to Kyoto for my birthday with a group of 10 family members. This was the first time any of us had been and we ended up having a really fun time. Our chef was a lot of fun and really made the experience for us. The food was typical Hibachi, nothing really special but tasty. We tried some of... More
