Food is very good, fun dinner for all at hibachi table

The food is quite good, and it is really fun to sit at the hibachi table, reservation recommended if you want hibachi. There is a lot of food so I would recommend sharing plates. Fun to get a variety. My kids LOVED it. Would definitely go again.

Your typical Hibachi experience, which is fun for the kids and actually good food for the adults as well

I had never had Japanese food before and was a little apprehensive when my friends suggested it. I will tell you that I will return to FUJI's in the Old Port in Portland, Maine again. We went after an afternoon concert and didn't think it would be too busy but the place was packed. The food was great - the... More

Enjoyed dining here in past years, but (new?) management or immature staff attitude not customer-based. Minimal salad ingredients and entree servings inconsistent with Fuji's meals in past years. Would hesitate to recommend to diners not crazy about abrasive atonal hard rock music. Unusual hospitality environment.

It isn't very often I write a poor review, however, we have had 3 bad trips to Fuji - they are now "off the list". This latest time they charged our party an extra $14 to fry our rice...AT THE HIBACHI TABLE. Seriously? Apparently it only comes with white rice (even when they are cooking everything in front of you).... More

Our chef was very friendly and wonderful entertainment. This was only our second time trying hibachi and our first time here. Loved it and the food was wonderful! Best pork Goyza I've ever had! Can't wait to go back again.

Nice spot if you don't have reservations in Portland. The quality of sushi was top. I had a lobster roll that was really delicious.

I think this is the only place in Portland that you can get hibachi. Come here mostly for the sushi, which is delicious. I have never had a bad meal here. Often one of my first places I go to if I'm craving sushi!

Good choice if you forgot to make reservations or don't want to wait hours for many of the well known foodie restaurants in Portland. Decor a bit tired, & service a bit on the slow side (our server acknowledged this unsolicited and was very nice). The sushi was good. The "Lobster Roll" was excellent, fresh, well seasoned Aji nigiri, crunchy... More

Fuji never disappoints, the Rainbow Toko is to die for, everything is super fresh and beautifully prepared and presented, the service is friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu
