Great food, great prices. Very consistent.

Have been in prolly about 20 times since they've opened. Never a bad meal or experience. Waits might be a little long on Friday or Saturday night but you know the dinner is going to rock. Highly recommend.

Honestly, my advice is to pace yourself through the courses because they're all amazing and you definitely get you money's worth. I usually get the chicken and shrimp combo at the Hibachi tables. It's a great place to take friends, family, or a first date to help break the ice. Also, do not pass up the Yum Yum sauce, the... More

The sushi is not bad, but the teppanyaki is a bit pricey for this area. My 18 year-old daughter goes there often as a favorite local spot for celebrations with her girlfriends . Nice building/layout and close to the interstate. Last time they went, even though it was a Thursday evening, they were sure to have a reservation because of... More

We took our grandkids to Kitaro to celebrate a birthday. We've been to several of this type of restaurants, and they are all basically the same (menu, price). While our food was good enough, and the menu selection was better than many, the presentation was lacking in pizzaz and fairly quick.

This was my first brush with Japanese cuisine, outside of Japan. I must say, I wasn't disappointed. Particularly impressive was the chef tricks and the shrimp toss was amazing. Food was to our liking and service was prompt and courteous. A must visit for trying out Japanese cuisine in O'Fallon.

Me and the wife stopped in at Kitaro for happy hour since we had a $25 gift card. First of all, there's a pretty decent list of sushi's that are half off from 4 to 5 so we got a couple roils and some drinks. The Kentucky roll was excellent as was the California. Our server Suzy was excellent too... More

My husband and I took our three adult children and a friend to eat here for my son's birthday. We made reservations for the hibachi grill side of the restaurant since there was 6 of us. I think if you plan on doing the grill, reservations are a must. We went on a Friday night and all 4 grills were... More

We took the whole family to Kitiaro for a family dinner. We were all able to gather around a grill with a chef cooking our dinner on the grill. We started with a salad with a ginger based dressing. Pretty awesome! We had shrimp - chicken - steak on the grill along with rice and grilled veggies. It was entertaining... More

Went here for my wife's birthday. We went on a Saturday night, so we had a bit of a wait. As far as the food and service go, I've never had a problem here. The song and dance is, as always, the same.

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 experience. The inexperienced chefs over/under cook... More
