Always like this place!

Food was awesome. I am a sushi lover, so I ordered sushi before our cook arrived. I ordered the spicy tuna roll (my fav...always tastes better in Louisiana though), cali roll, and some crunchy roll (had shrimp, crab, avocado). My husband ordered the steak and lobster and loved it. I ordered the... read more

This place would be getting -10 stars if I could rate them that. We had to wait 60+ minutes for a table and service. I left my credit card and didn't realize it until the next afternoon. When I called to see if they had it I was told no. My friend called and they told her yes they did... More

I went here for a bday party. The service was terrible and the food was mediocre at best. Not to mention overpriced. The cook was not very entertaining, throwing food in people mouths, who does that!! I will not be returning!!!

Our chef spoke not a lick of English, and our server wasn't much better. Overall, the service was mediocre at best. Our chef wasn't personable and had zero flare. The only thing he did aside from cook, was make a heart out of the rice. He didn't even place the spatula under the rice and make the heart beat. Like...really???... More

Food is good and the cook at your table is quite entertaining. As a family dinner or a date, it's a great place to have a meal.

Took my kids on a lunch date the waiter didn't meet basic needs such as my son requested a spoon that he never received after he had asked 3x he asked for a refill on his drink and never got it. The food as always was great the cook and exceeded our expectation of service

Ordered the special chicken and shrimp. 20 bucks. Turned out I got charged another 3.50 for the rice that came with it. Chicken was dry and only 6 small shrimp. 30.00 plus out the door. Never again. What a rip off.
