We all have 'been there and done that' with the hibachi style dinners, but this one was different. Chef Bao was new, I found out, but he prepared the food perfectly. He made the filet mignon stand up and walk right into my mouth! It was the most juicy, delicious, perfectly cooked steak I've had in ten years! This place... More

The restaurant has very strict policies about reservations (won't seat you until your whole party arrives, and won't guarantee the reservation if you're not all there within 15 mins of your reservation time), but if you're willing to play along, it's well worth it. Our party of 11 was timely, and got the chef we requested (Rocky), who put on... More

Ambiance simple, food is average and priced a bit high. On the positive - staff friendly and attentive.

I ordered take out from here maybe that's the problem. It was really just average. I'm vet familiar with hibachi or as they called it teppanyaki. I've also lpbeen to japan and know teppanyaki. This was just Americanized average hibachi. I'm glad I only paid $14.

It is a nice place to have dinner on special ocasions like Birthdays, anniversaries or St Valentine's day because a personal chef prepares the Hibachi style food in front of you with sense of humor and show movements. We have been coming for years to celebrate birthdays with our family and we loved it when they used to give us... More

My boyfriend and I aren't huge fans of chain restaurants, but he hadn't been to a hibachi place before- EVER! So out of the few places around, we decided to go here. The show is always the best part of the meal here. That, and you have enough food for dinner, and lunch for two days, even some snacks in... More

Hands down, this is our local fav, out of all the hibachi restaurants we have visited in our travels. The food is always good and the cooks always give a good show. The last time we went, we were there with friends who had not been there before and they were very pleased. They have some specials and if you... More

We went here because we had a restaurant.com gift certificate to use. Come to find out it was for the wrong Kobes. No big deal we still enjoyed it. We had a reservation for 9 on a Saturday night we were seated about around 9:30. They were busy. Would eat here again as the pricing and decor is nicer then... More

Family and friends night out. Perfect choice ! I don't think I ever had a steak so tender in my Life! Everything was perfect ! So much better than the other Japanese steak house. The place was packed. We had reservations for 7:30 and they called us at 7:30... Nice... I can't wait to go again!
