I called 5 days in advance to reserve a teppan yaki table for 8 at 8 pm on a Friday night. I knew it would be busy. It was a special occasion so I thought this would be a great way to meet with friends. I get there on time only to find may name is not on any list.... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever had at this restaurant. The chef was very good. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. We were there on a Saturday night and had to wait 1 and 1/2 hours. It was worth the wait. It is vey reasonably priced for the amount of food you get to eat.

Last year on my visit the Clovis I couldn't get enough of The Japanese Kitchen. This trip it was just ok. I ordered the shrimp tempura bento box. It seemed like there was something missing from last year. My server was very good and attentive. Maybe it was me or maybe an off say in the kitchen. I will try... More

Compared to the other teppanyaki places here in fresno/clovis, this one I go to the least. I still go to it though, so it is good. You always have to wait on a wait list. Even if you call ahead. It does offer lunch time specials. I prefer here for lunch only for me. Price and cooks are just as... More

We used to love coming to Japanese kitchen with our kids for some fun teppanyaki for dinner, but the last three times we've gone here we've left extremely unhappy that we wasted our money at this restaurant. They quote a wait time when we called ahead that was at least 45 minutes shorter than what we ended up waiting. The... More

We were visiting our daughter in college. We have eaten here before as this is one of our favorite places to eat. This was the best meals we have had here. Our chef was very good and fun. There were 4 of us and dinner was around $100 which was reasonable. The steaks and seafood were delicious. A great meal... More

Food was pretty good and we had the best cook we have ever had at any Japanese Hibachi Restaurant. The down side is the place is old looking, run down and dirty. Can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. We never return.

Everything here is fresh. They make their own seaweed salads to order unlike other places that order them pre made. They also do a light seaweed salad with not as much oil. Always enjoy the variety. But I miss Koji. He is a Sakurya now.
