The chef makes all the difference

It is wonderful to have a Teppanyaki restaurant close to home. The sushi is decent, but pricey for what you recieve. The Teppanyaki side is a favorite of our youngest daughter. I have had good and bad experiences on that side. Some of the chefs are seasoned, entertaining, and make for a good dining... read more

My son and I came here for lunch, and since he'd never been to a Japanese grill before, we chose the Habachi side of the restaurant. The food was moderately priced for lunch, and the cooking show was entertaining. My son and I had a nice time. He ordered the chicken and shrimp, and I ordered the scallops. Both were... More

The best of both worlds! You can order from the menu in the restaurant or sit at the hibachi grill and watch the chef cook your food. A good dining experience either way

We had a blast eating here with a group of our friends. They put on a good show with the fixing of the food. It was all good and a lot of it.

Been almost a year since I took family here. Had reservations at 6 PM and was promptly seated by hostess that acted bored. Food was okay, cook was quite entertaining. Service was prompt as the place was busy. My real complaint was cleanliness. Sticky tables and chairs. Dried food on salt shakers and Soy sauce dispensers. The floor looked extremely... More

We came here first because the building is unique for the area. Cool design with very tall windows and open spaces. The service has always been friendly and fast. The food is good. We need to try some other menu items. The sushi rolls are good. We love noodles and have tried the Yakisoba noodles - just okay. It's well... More

This is one of my husband's favorite places to go for sushi in O'Fallon. I really like their chicken fried rice you can order off the regular menu or you can get through the hibachi grill. The service has always been very slow and not always friendly, but the food is worth it. Fun place for the whole family!

I've been here several times, once for lunch and about 5 times for dinner. The food is ok. Not really worth it for the price. That said, the show is fun, and that's why we return. Guests from out of town and my 9 year old boy love going to Kitaros to catch shrimp in their mouth and see the... More
