Local, neighborhood Japanese joint

Yes there is the big national chain, and the other tepanyaki restaurant in Anaheim Hills, but if you want to enjoy a nice local Japanese steak house, this strip center joint is your place. Funky, casual and good, a great place for family and friends to get loud and interact with the cook as he... read more

The outside of the restaurant looks like a hole in the wall dive spot. I would have never tried this place but the restaurant was recommended. The food is very fresh and clean tasting. Good spices and nice portions. The inside decor is old but the food was very good so I did not pay attention to the walls after... More

Bari Bari is a great Tepanyaki (where they cook in front of you at your table) restaurant. The food is excellent and the show the chefs put on is entertaining and fun. It isn't cheap, but the quality of the experience is absolutely worth it!

The food was great I had the NY steak and scallops. I was a bit saddened that there was no "special sauces or yum yum sauce". The chef was not that funny or entertaining. I have been to better places where the interaction. Is superb. Here is was just Ok. The price ran me about $28 for what I had... More

Bari Bari is a reasonably priced Benihana-style restaurant. Chefs are lighthearted and entertaining. The food is generous and tasty. Reservations recommended, but we've been able to reserve a table within the hour.

We have been going to this restaurant for the past 10 years. Most of us order the filet and it is always good. They use quality meat and cook it perfectly. For flavor we order the garlic and it tastes great.

I hadn't been to a teppanyaki place in at least a couple of decades, but then wound up eating at both Bari Bari in Yorba Linda and Benihana in Torrance within one week. So, my review of Bari Bari is informed by my experience at Banihana. My girlfriend and I were invited to celebrate a birthday at Bari Bari. It's... More

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars. I really liked the quality of the food, and the portions are more than adequate, but the taste was just ok. The fried rice wasn't the bomb. I could have made it better at home. Scrambling an egg and adding soy sauce and butter isn't fried rice. Adding veggies and maybe even garlic... More
