I have a young friend who thought this was a wonderful place, and since I live so close to it, I thought I'd try it. Big mistake! Terrible service, terrible food. It just pales in comparison to other Japanese restaurants in the area, and I'm surprised that it's still in business. What's funny is that it's more expensive for mediocre... More

We were there on Aug 22, 2012. There were 7 of us to celebrate my daughters birthday. The waitress took 50 minutes to get us the miso soup and other 30 minutes for our fried rice, forgot our appetizers, only refilled our drinks once the 3 hours we were there. Finally brought out 5 dinners and forgot our utensils, then... More

We met family there with out children and their child. Service was fast and friendly. Portions are generous and they kept our drink glasses full. On this particular evening the air conditioner was. It working and it make our visit a bit uncomfortable. Seating arrangements are crowded.

We went here on 2/18/11 to celebrate a late Valentine's day dinner per a recommendation from my sister. We've ate here about 3 years earlier and the experience was a 2 star, therefore have not been back since then. The sushi and sashimi was ok...I've had better. The seaweed salad was great. You won't be disappointed if you order this.... More

We have been going to Zipangu Japanese Resturant for years. It is not fancy but the food is great. They also make the biggest, and most tasteful sushi we ever had. We have tried different one each time. Their combination dinners are the best. The Korean shortribs are to die for. The teppanyaki is not fancy but the cooks are... More

It's smaller and it doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles that the other teppin places have.The cooks are always great/entertaining! My friends and I have had several birthday parties there and they are always accomidating to us! Great food! The fried rice is the best I've ever... More
