Great for big groups!

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...

Wife and I had a blast discovering this one. It is located on up on the floor of that cozy mall. When we climbed up discovered that the line already formed (10-15 people) for the afternoon shift opening.. Maybe we were overwhelmed since this is our first visit to this type of grill (where you are put into controll), but... More

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. We happened to go in during happy hour which was awesome because we were able to order 4-5 small plates to share and try a bunch of different things (sushi, fried veggies, dumplings, etc..) Everything was great! We also tried a Bento box which was also... More

We've dined here 4 times over past 3 months as we needed to be close to USC Keck Hospital, and this had been recommended by our hotel. 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
