Good Japanese food prepared at the table. Had a very colorful chef. The decor was pretty good, has a lot of aquariums which are always nice to look at. A lot of the place seems a little frayed at the edges though. Had a great, colorful chef. Food is just ok, but it is more a place you go to... More

We live in Idaho and every time we come back home to Fresno we have to visit the Japenese Kitchen. They have the best rice ever. True, sometimes you have to wait for an hour or more for seating. Yes, they have lost a reservation or two of mine as well. But it is okay. The chefs that cook the... More

The food served, all types including sushi, steaks, calamari, chicken, and esp sauces and fried rice is very good. In the summer, restaurant is hot. Despite the hot grills, other teppanyaki restaurants in the area and other cities manage to run the A/C sufficiently so their customers are not dying of heat-stroke during dinner. Service, while OK, seems as though... More

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
