Chef skillful at preparation and entertainment during meal

This is a delightful, entertaining and delicious event. Guests are seated around a hibachi grill so are able to watch closely. Each item is prepared and served right off the grill. The noodles, vegetables and meats are tasty and cooked to perfection...a very happy and satisfying experience.

When first entering Hamada you may be shocked by some of the prices on the menu, but when you get the food the taste more than makes up for the cost. Portions are great and the chefs put on a great show. I recommend ordering double noodles to make sure you get the most out of the meal, yes it... More

After walking out of a nearby restaurant that was terrible we went to hamada. The place was packed on a sunday night, good sign. The habachi chef was very good. Had the filet and scallops, wife had salmon. Cooked perfect. Portions to large is my only complaint. I ate way to much. Prices range from $30-45 per meal very reasonable.... More

(seats 10), Had the filet & Lobster combo. Lots of food was able to take some home for next day (tasted even better). Must... More

We went with another couple and their family. The food was very good. We were celebrated the father's birthday of the other family so the restaurant put a candle is his ice cream and sang to him.

Food is good but the terrible customer service over shadows everything. I ended up changing my reservation, because I got off work later than expected. I got to the restaurant & made them aware that I was here, I then over heard the manager talking about how I changed my reservation and how he was annoyed that I changed reservations.... More

I love this place!!! I leave every time entertained and completely full with a full to go container! The food is great! The service is excellent and the bartender is heavy handed.

Our table of 10 contained 3 young children and one 'tween. The table seated AFTER and behind us held primarily all adults and 3 more people. Though I'd been there before, several times, to a pleasant end...This Was NOT to be one of those nights. Our servers were slow and inattentive. Requests were addressed slowly, some not at all (booster... More

I adore their food. Although it seems like this last we went they have changed the noodle texture. Everything else was as I expected it to be. Service leaves much to be desired based on the price they want you to pay for the meal. For $100 for 2 people I expected more out of our server/chef. Not more food,... More

This is a nice experience with family and friends. Everything is made fresh and to your liking. Very reasonably priced. Never been disappointed. Like anywhere else, you either love it or hate it. We all loved it and the portions are plentiful.
