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

the restaurant is very good. every time i go to Clovis for business we visit the restaurant once for the sushi and good atmosphere. The wait staff is friendly as well as the sushi chefs. The food is good and the price is about right for what you are getting. Overall a good place to go with a group or... 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.

We really love Japanese Kitchen -- the food has always been good and as a general rule the chef does a great job of entertaining with flipping knives, rice volcano etc. We received none of that this time during our visit. He hardly talked at all and since several of the cook areas are back to back -- our chef... More

I actually liked this restaurant for some time, but it started to go down hill and the management left a really sour taste my mouth after I left my purse at a table and it took a call to the police to get it back, that was after some jerk dumped it on the freeway.

My wife and I visited on a Sunday evening. We had avoided this place for some time (service issues), but decided to try it again. The food (teriyaki and garlic chicken combinations) was served promptly; and the quantity was more than adequate (we both took some home). The waitress was attentive, and kept the tea coming. The tempura does not... More
