Went here with my family and while it was good, it wasn't great. Prices are a little high I thought and the show was entertaining but I think you could have a better meal for a lot less elsewhere.

kids tradition is they go here on there birthdays (every year). Really good food, great atmosphere, just a really good family restaurant. probably the best family restaurant. Catch is way to much food, I could eat less but it is so good.

Been a long time since I visited this Teppan showplace that rose to fame in the 70's. And not much has changed. You sit table side at the hot grill, chef doing a juggling act with the tools and the obligatory flipping of shrimp tails into his hat and front pocket are still well performed. The ingredients in the beef,... More

Our family has been coming for past 10 plus year. We have never been having so bad experience before. The waiter is extremely rude and impolite. We complain about the loud noise and ask if they can turn it down a little or 're seat us to another table. He was getting rude .and saying nothing he can do. This... More

When we were looking for somewhere to eat in the area one evening, I suggested this place, for old time's sake. I always find this a very entertaining, but slightly expensive evening. We had not booked, so we headed into the... More

I am very impressed with this joint and hope the network lives up to it reputation for serving ethnic Japanese food. The staff and especially the chefs, I am sure have undergone some sort of training to perform professionally. The food and food making in front of you is highly amusing together with the food quality. I wish to write... More
