I have also been to the Tokyo Wako in Arcadia, but I liked this one more. There was 10 of us, so they gave us two chefs which was pretty entertaining. I ordered the lunch combo with filet and scallops and both were cooked to perfection! Will return...

One of the better lit tappan yaki places. It is good if you like that sort of menu. Otherwise, the choices are somewhat limited.

I had dinner with a friend at this joint while visiting CA for work.

The staff has always been happy and helpful, and we've sampled their 3 options- sushi, teppan, and off the menu. All were well prepared, but sushi/sashimi is our favorite way to go. There... More

The restuarant is a good one, considering that i could conveniently and comfortably eat all they served. Even their soup wasnt bad either. The chef had some cutlery and cooking set skill display before the whole grilling started. It was a good dinner

We were enticed into this restaurant by the 2-for-1 deal offered, and were quickly escorted to a group table that was almost already full, so we didn't have to wait long for the show to begin. But we had only moments to examine the menu and thus didn't realize that every time an "extra" was offered, like fried rice, that... More
