Interesting concept where you choice raw food, make a combination of meats and veggies, with choice of sauce where you take it over to the chef , cooks it on a large steel grill as you watch and wait, you are served rice at your table. Little slow, we had to wait in line for it to be cooked, but... read more

Wanted to try this place as we walk by it all the time... Wish we just kept on walking. First, it's very confusing as to how the whole thing works. People there didn't seem to know what to do, including us. Second, the food was terrible. Service was mediocre at best. The expensive price tag was definately not worth the... More

Have been there several times. They have very fresh food for the grill aspect of the meal. You can choose what you like and that is a big plus for me.

Terrible salad bar, low quality ingredients you have to put in bowl and wait for it to be cooked. The only thing worse than the food was the service. In the40 minutes we where there, not a single dish was removed. $14 for mediocre stir fry was too much!

If you haven't been before, it's a bit of work to figure out how to do things there, but once you get the hang of it, the food is delicious. Very entertaining for the kids to watch them cooking the food.

This place was a lot of fun! The grill guys play around and flip their spatulas. It's amateur but still cool to see, especially for the kidos! I packed my bowl with lots of vegetables and made a sweeter and peppery sauce with strips of ribeye. I am not a vegetarian, I just like veggies more then meat. They had... More

I went here on a business dinner and the food is okay. It is what you make it but you do have to pretty much make it except for the cooking. I know some people like adding their own flair to the dishes. The service was good and it is close to the surrounding hotels.

We decided to to the unlimited food, so we could try different combinations.
