We have ordered food to be delivered multiple times, and the delivery time keeps getting longer - more than an hour and twenty minutes last time (and we live under 10 minutes away). Plus in 2 out of 3 orders they forget part of our order. Each time I say never again, and this time I really mean it.

This is our little "go-to" when we don't know what we want - but know we don't want to cook. The menu has a lot of options both Japanese and Chinese and is moderately priced. Quiet atmosphere - even with the teppanyaki chefs doing their thing. Non-Ivy League beer prices too! If you order something not specifically on the menu,... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. Lots of food on the lunch special. I had the chicken teriyaki skewers with fried rice, soup and rangoons for $6.95. Service was prompt and we got our food quickly. We also ordered maki which we now know is rolls and those were good as well. Overall very pleasant.

I and my friends went there for lunch because Daikanyama next door where we wanted to go initially was closed for renovation. We ordered various sashimi which we usually do when we meet for lunch at a sushi place. While sashimi itself was good after we left I felt extremely hungry as the portions were really small compared to some... More

Sub-par teppanyaki restaurant. Sushi is very mediocre, especially considering it's next door to fantastic sushi at Daikanyama. Not sure how this place stays open.

The food here was terrible. Even though it was nice to see them cooking it in front of you, it was not good at all. The fire alarm must have gone off 3 times because when they cook in front of you, there are lots of flames when they cook.

I went there and thought a Frat Party was taking place at the bar. A group of regulars were drunk, unruly and obnoxious and the staff did NOTHING to address them - even the owner. they claimed they were " regulars" I left in a hurry because it was disgusting what they were saying and how they were taking over...

We do the Tippenyaki and the kids always like the show and food. They have a sushi bar and we order a cucumber roll for fun for the kids too. It's priced reasonable vs. similar. They did a couple groupon offers to boost biz, they were a good deal.

Sushi is fabulous, very fresh. Our family also had a smattering of every hibachi option, excluding chicken. The steak was very flavorful and tender, tuna seared to perfection, and scallops were huge and tender. I assume the shrimp were great too because there were none left for me to try.

Ruyi in Lexington was a fun place to eat hibachi. We used a groupon to try this place. The food was good but everything tasted the same. The chef seemed to use the same sauce for everything that he cooked. The filet mignon was not that tasty but it was bery tender. The shrimp, salmon, chicken, and lobster were pretty... More
