I don't eat Sushi, so we ate at in the dining room. We have had Teppan in the past. Oriental cook better than Hispanic cook. I had Tempura special and it was excellant- light and flavorfull, not greasy. My husband had Sushi/Shasami for 1-excellant choice- just enough food. Can hardly wait to go back again. Dining room is quieter- teppan... More

Just had a lovely dinner and fun times with our adult kids, their significant others, and The Moms, as a mother's day dinner around the teppan table. The food was great, as always, and the service was excellent. Everybody enjoyed the show as well as their dinners - I love that I can order sushi and everybody else can have... More

This restaurant is similar to Beni Hana. The food is cooked right in front of your. The restaurant atmosphere is very upscale so if you want to impress someone this is the place to go. The cooks make fried rice and scramble eggs into the rice. The cook will cut up small portions of the scrambled egg and use his... More

Great place for those who don't like Sushi- the options for those of us in that category were tremendous. My husband and friends shared a Sushi platter (recommended by the waitress) excellent! They didn't even have room for hand roll they were so full. Presentation was beautiful, service was ongoing, with empty dishes being removed on a regular basis. Went... More

Went there for late lunch with my husband and had the sushi/shashimi for two ($50), which comes with 21 sushi and 15 sashimi pieces, so plenty of food for us. Presentation was very nice and the taste was excellent. We also tried the organic cucumber martini and Georgia peach martini ($9 each). Both very good, but the cucumber martini is... More

Best sushi in town! Service was friendly and fast. Looking forward to my next visit. I had been told by a friend that the restaurant had closed but I think they may have been closed for remodeling. So glad they are still around.

Probably the most upscale Japanese restaurant in Riverside. Very good location for movie patrons in the next door film complex. Good bar. Has a Sushi bar. - a room for tappen dining - and indoor and out door space for the typical Japanese menu. A bit pricey!

The place itself it's pretty cool, I live the the fact that you have options, you can go to the bar, teppan grill or sushi bar. I've been here 5 times and the food has always been great, the portions are awesome and the show by the teppan chef it's always entertaining. The price is about average for this type... More
