Fun, fresh and friendly! Food is delicious and we enjoyed an entertaining show by the hibachi chef. One of the owners stopped by our table at the end of our meal and gave us a coupon for 15% off our next visit. Would highly recommend!

Picked this because of good reviews and the reviewers were very right; dinner was an absolute treat! Very relaxed atmosphere to dine in, superb presentation of plated food, and the most delicious dishes we have ever tasted in a Japanese restaurant. The staff was so very kind and helpful; just wish this was in my own home town!

This is one of those hidden gems in the Lehigh Valley. Many people would tend to the louder and more obvious hibachi/sushi places in the Lehigh Valley, but this little restaurant is tucked out of the way and very unassuming. Still, I solidly believe they have the best sushi in the Lehigh Valley. Their hibachi is good, but comparable to... More

If you want an excellent and authentic Hibachi/Sushi meal I highly recommend Robata of Tokyo. My wife ordered the Hibachi meal and we were impressed at the aplomb of table side Chef.

I grew up in Asia, and this is BY FAR the best and most authentic Japanese restaurant I've ever been to in the Lehigh Valley.
