Interesting place

Had lunch here because the sushi restaurant we wanted was closed. While it was mostly business people when we were there it would be a great place to take children as they can entertain themselves by cooking their own food on the table. There are booths as well as tables, all of which appeared to... read more

Small hidden gem that I haven't been to before. Fast service, small menu and that is how it should be. Loved my order. Not too spicy and a great quality. Will be back, hopefully sooner than later.

Dirty restaurant. Booth walls have chipped paint. Seat cushions have crumbs and doesn't appear to,have cleaned in years. Food portions are small. We've not been here for years but clearly the franchisee is not paying attention or doesn't care. Food is less then fair. Wait staff were very good abd since it wasn't busy we were out in about an...

This is the favorite restaurant for my meat loving teenage sons. A bit pricey but I think it worth the money.

Get the meat lovers' special for $10, and grill your own food - the portion is deceptively large, and along with salad, miso soup and a range of sauces, you'll be stuffed. If you burn your grill too badly, the staff will happily replace it for you or change the heat - so do just ask.

The food is okay and I happened to go during happy hour, so the prices were okay. But what upset me is that this place is not family friendly. They DO NOT HAVE HIGHCHAIRS! What kind of restaurant doesn't have those standard wooden highchairs that can be pulled up to the table?! They do have booster seats, but those only... More

Stopped in for lunch for a change. They had great prices and happy hour prices as well. For 7.95 you can get miso soup salad rice edamame beef chicken and pork to grill. Not bad and I love the style of restaurant where you can grill your meat at your table.

We ate here and made sure all of our food was properly cooked by us...ironically, we didn't check the sukiyaki bimbimap (sp). Just make sure that all meats are properly cooked and you are in for a great meal!
