From steaks, sushi, and hibachi!!, its a fun place, its very good and roomy, as with most hibachi places it can be noisy but its that kind of fun place. The sushi we had was very good, it was a very nice restaurant. Its easy to get to, plenty of parking and a full bar.

The hibachi salmon was AWESOME and cheese sticks were a great deal. Koto has an awesome special by 2 rolls of sushi, get one... More

Food has always been very good here, but service can be a bit nonexistent too often. Sushi is really good, but there's better places in town for the amount of money. I mean, if the sushi is same quality with higher cost.....I'd rather get my sushi fix elsewhere! just sayin'. Atmosphere I think is great, but can get extremely noisy... More

Six of us went to celebrate a birthday dinner. Food was ok but the hibachi show was disappointing for the kids and adults. There was no flame, no saki and besides bouncing eggs, all he did was cook. The shrimp was over cook/burnt and everything was very salty. For the cost we won't be returning.

Food was not that good, not a lot of flavor and filet was chewy. Chef was really lame and kids were really bummed they did not get a good show. For the money I would not go back. Waiter did a good job.

I came here with three of my colleagues and we all enjoyed a great meal. The sushi and sashimi was great! The edamame was good. Service was great! I had the spicy soup also. Very good Japanese restaurant.

The food is ok. The presentation is great! It looks like the sterotypical hibachi grill. However, the prices are ridiculous. They are really fairly priced on tea's though. Try Kawa, it's cheaper, you get better food, and they don't waste alot of time, but they still do a great show.

Now this is a place I enjoy eating. If you go, the hibatchi tables are where it's at. It takes your whole experience and makes it very entertaining. I've been three times and every chef that served us was friendly and welcoming! The quality of the food is great but the price is on the high side. This is a... More
