Hibatchi time!

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... read 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.

This is a traditional "Chop 'N Watch" restaurant where the food is good and the show put on by the chef, cooking at your table, is most entertaining. It is great for special occasions.

Thanks, Koto for making the surprise dinner fantastic. Great food, fun chefs and a beautiful setting. The only thing. I would have changed is turn on the a/c in the party room BEFORE the cooking begins. We were a large group and the room was hot and steamy before dinner.

The food was spot on the chef was not to bad. (Have seen better) He need more practice on the hibachi. The waitress was always right there when you needed her. The main problem was that the hibachi seating area had steps and my wife is in a wheelchair.
