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.

Went to this sushi spot on a whim. Being in a strip mall, it is very easy to pass it by. But, the food, especially the sushi rivals some of the best in the area; really, fresh and tasty.

The business seems to be family owned. They always show hospitality when you come in. Have never been mistreated by any of the staff. Many of the staff seem to be new to the US, so to get attention for them to come back to your table- you may have to give them a proper nod (like in Europe). Food... More

This is one of my families favorite restaurants. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. Hibachi bar is fun but in the regular restaurant....the service is laughably HORRIBLE. the wait staff make no attempt to even pretend they want to speak English (they are not Japanese but Chinese) after they serve the meal they give you 10 minutes to...

Went last night for sushi with my wife. We shared to special and one a la cart roll. Iron chef roll was squishy and a bit bland. Shrimp tempura roll fell apart when trying to eat. Service was below average. Was later in evening (close to nine) and expected better.

The food was decent, don't eat sushi but the miso soup was great and so was the rice. Chef was good, joked around and provided entertainment but....the waitress was so rude and unfriendly it really jaded our experience. Do not think we will go there again, too many other places with better service.
