Ok Sushi

I love Sushi/Sashmi. This restaurant is just okay. There are many other Japanese restaurants in the area that offer better food.

The hibachi is excellent. Great entertainment and plenty of food. The negative is if you order sushi as an appetizer it comes the same time as the hibachi starts which defeats the purpose for an app

Four of us ate here on a Friday evening. We ordered a bottle of wine, which in our minds was from the "house" selection and cost $16. Somehow the waitress decided it was from the rest of the menu and brought us a bottle, showed us the label, poured it for tasting and left it in an ice bucket. When... More

Went with a friend for lunch. Service was quick, however the place was rather empty. There are a lot of menu options and all very well priced. I enjoyed that the maki had 8 pieces instead of 6. They also gave us hot tea with our meal for free and pineapple cubes at the end of out meal. Will definitely... More

This had to have been the worst dining experience I've ever had. we had a seven o'clock reservation. Upon arriving a few minutes early we were told to stand and wait for a few minutes. No bartender to get a drink while we waited. finally sat 30 minutes after our reservation, which I guess was not bad because other people... More

We decided to meet two other couples for hibachi food and entertainment. We heard good things about Iron Chef so we decided to give them a try. Everything worked out great - food was excellent and we had good service. The inside has a special charm with just the right lighting to accent the interior. The rest rooms were very... More

We used to love Iron Chef as one of our favorite Japanese restaurant. We live in Cromwell but the distance never really stopped us from coming here until today. We were very surprised to be the ONLY people inside the restaurant during lunch time on Sunday. We were the only people there but they took very long time to serve... More

We went for hibachi for my daugher's birthday. A party of 14+. We had to wait for our drinks which took forever especially the sake bombs. I don't believe our waitress understood what we were ordering as nothing came together but at different times which held up the birthday 'toast'. We had two chefs, our side came after the other...

We visited here twice in recent weeks. Each time, the food was superbly prepared to our liking. We ate at the hibachi section of the restaurant; you can choose to eat in the regular restaurant section and order off an extensive menu if you wish. Appetizers - Crab Rangoon in particular, were outstanding. We also had a lobster and shrimp... More

The portions were larger than you'd expect and they were very tasty. The chef put on a good show and made sure that we got what we ordered and kept the various sauces full. The service staff was fast and very friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
