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. He entertained as he prepared the meal and everything was done to perfection. I opted for an eclectic Sushi and Sashimi sampling from the menu. From the Toro... More

Robata has a romantic, authentic, and welcoming decor that someone clearly has put thought into. The food was fine but because we were in a hurry didn't have time to have the sushi we really wanted. I give this restaurant five stars because Allentown in general has a bedraggled appearance but this place has done well given the old (but... More
