Went as a party of 7 with a 5:30 reservation on New Year's Eve. Food was reasonably good, service was more rushed than usual, the stage show was tepid at best with minimal interaction between the chef and the diners beyond the customary throwing of food to be caught like a seal and the onion volcano. I suspect the prospect... More

When it comes to sushi/sashimi, quality and freshness is key. This restaurant served both. I do not claim to be an epicure but my lovely wife and I both love sushi/sashimi. This was really, really good. The texture and flavors were the best we have had in the Danbury/Ridgefield area. Toro in Newtown is a worthy competitor, but if I... More

Great Sushi specials every night of the week. The Spicey Tuna Roll is beyond belief ! I had two of them. The Tempora entre is a good recomendation for a main . The only drawback with overall service is the inability to properly communicate your drink (vodka and soda) order with the waitress. However, the food and the quality of... More

Mannen consistently serves the freshest sushi in the area... always busy, recently updated interior, and great service, you can't go wrong! The Chinese food, however, is lacking inspiration, and the hibatchi, though fun, also falls short- silverware, rather than chopsticks at the table sets the tone.

A pristine clean kitchen and fresh sushi as well a a gracious owner and staff tell the story here. No subs of great sushi. You are able to tell the sushi chef " to make me something with what ever you'd like". Where can you go for something as custom as this? The hibachi is the best inthe area. Children... More

The Chinese food is quite good and likely the best in town. The Hibachi is ordinary , possibly interesting for the kids, and the Sushi is also nothing special. I would certainly go there for Chinese food but not waste your time for the other specialities. We were a bit upset when they charged my wife extra to fill an... More

I went here for a dinner last night and the Hibachi chef had no personality and made the experience very boring. I felt as if we were more entertained by talking to who was there with the group at our table then we were by the hibachi chef. The food was great but the worst hibachi chef I've ever experienced....

My wife and I met some friends for dinner at this restaurant. It's a great half way point from our respective homes, and this was our first time eating here. We will certainly be back after the great meals we had. We did 3 of the 4 meals family style, and they were all your regular Chinese food dishes. I... More

Recently completely redesigned and refitted, Mannen now offers a full Hibachi experience for those who want a show with their dinner. For those who just want a quieter, sit-down experience, the dining room is separate and boasts both Chinese and Japanese menus along with a very adept Sushi chef and his staff offering a variety of standard and creative Maki...

i have been to Mannen easily a hundred times and finally figured I would write a review. I remember when it first opened as a Japanese restaurant. Since then they have expanded to be a broader Asian Fusion restaurant and recently created a hibatchi section. My teen age son has acquired a sushi habit from these guys and my other... More
