Place is always busy book a reso before going. The food was excellent and more than enough for a togo bag of leftovers. The Hibachi Chef was talented and funny.

I wanted a good place to get sushi. I read the reviews where persons said it was very busy... But being busy doesn't mean you can't check on customers ...they drop the food on your table and run off with out checking if everything is ok ..even if I wanted to order something else . No one came back to... More

Cheaper than other mainstream hibachi style restaurants, this place has been a favorite for years. I have not dined at the regular tables, so I cannot comment on the quality of food on that side, but they certainly get it right on the hibachi side! Smallish location, so make a reservation if going on a popular night or holiday!

Cooked at table, so much to choose from, included in the price is soup, salad, prawns, rice, veg, noodles and choice of meats and fish, if you are near its a must visit. Food great, service great.

We often go to Benihana when we have a craving for this type of Japanese cooking, but Japan Inn is very close to our home. The food is similar to Benihana, but the prices are lower and the wait is shorter. The food is always prepared just as you request and with all the courses (soup, salad, veggies, main course...

Great place for sushi and lunch. Staff is very efficient and the menu is not only reasonably priced but provides a wide enough array of food to satisfy customers!

We went to the Japan Inn with a friend. We were there during happy hour and found the very reasonably priced appetizers to be consistently delicious. My favorites were the eggplant and the calamari. The service was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant for a fun evening full of very good food.
