The preparation of the food makes the dining experience fun and exciting. Where else can you see a chef making the ordinary extraordinary.... It is fascinating. I love watching the chef... More

I first ate here in 1989 ... loved it then, love it now. When I want to eat out, but don't want anything heavy in my stomach, then this is the place to go.

One of my all time favorite spots for a "night out" celebration with friends or family! We all love the salad, soup, appetizers and entrees that come with the hibachi meal. The chef is so entertaining to watch as he prepares your meal before you. Great food with fresh vegetables and ingredients.....shrimp, scallops, steak, salmon, etc. are all wonderful. Adults...

We ate the express lunch and it was good. The environment is always busy and noisy, as it's open and loud as they cook on the grills for you. The food is always good. I always enjoy eating here.its the Asian version of Outback Steak House.

This location is always great, even if we do not sit at the stove-tops. This time we did and our Chef was fantastic. The sushi is top notch, and worth the wait.

Stopped in for lunch and had a great meal. I had their chicken teriyaki benito box and my husband had the salmon, both meals were very good. Our Server was very nice and friendly. Surprisingly, they get very busy during lunch so plan accordingly.

I took 3 friends for dinner to celebrate one of their birthdays. We made a reservation and when we arrived, we were seated immediately. Service here is excellent. The tappanyaki style dinner was very entertaining and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the seafood - lobster, scallops, shrimp. The steak and chicken and the chicken fried rice were also...

This is a crowd favorite.... food is very fresh at a reasonable price this location is very busy. you really need a reservation or the wait at dinner can be very long the major concern is that the noise level is very loud, even sometimes uncomfortably...
