Reasonably price great food

We love Japanese food. We love hibachi grills. Get to meet some nice people this way. For what you spend in this place it's all worth it. I think it's time to go back!

Do not waste your time going here !! We thought we would try this since it was close to home, bad choice. The atmosphere of the restaurant is not very appealing. Looks very dirty and not well maintained. We both ordered filet and chicken. The filet was not a very good cut as there were pieces so tough that we... More

I went to Lampu today UNFORTUNATELY. This food was HORRIBLE, the gentleman that wiped the grill down and smelled like dog then placed the rag on my husbands drink. His carts was made from PVC pipe and duct tape. Not to even mention his POOR POOR spatula tossing show and his vacant train "show". The soup was ramen noddles and... More

Food was average and servings less than at similar resturants of this type. The 18% gratuity charge that was not itemized on the final bill I was given was definitely a disappointment. My wife and I tip at the 15% rate and expect a 18-21% for room service. Was given an itemized bill with attitude when we requested one. I... More

We ate lunch today with friends at this restaurant and the food was excellent. You can eat 8 together around the grill while the chef cooks the food in front of you (preferred) or you can sit at a booth and use the regular menu. I got Shrimp & Scallops and the meal was large. I ordered extra for the... More

My husband and I eat at Lampu a couple times a month. The food is always fresh, they cook right in front of you on the hibachi grill. The cooks are always entertaining and the wait staff is very attentive. Great food for the money.

Go down the street and get better customer service at kiku. Old dirty restaurant, owner has no customer service skills. The health department should come check out this place and shut it down.
