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.
