Great food as always

This is the best Japanese Steak House that I have ever eaten at. The service is good. The food is without a doubt super. They use good quality of meat and seafood, you can see that by looking at it before it is cooked. Will stop here every chance I get. Love it.

We had a 30 minute wait so we went to the bar and ordered drinks (5 of us) and appetizers. We had the pot stickers and the scallops/bacon appetizers that were just delicious. We were seated and had a nice dinner around the cook's station. I ordered the steak/veggie stir fry and it was great. Lots of food so you... More

Took our son to a nice dinner for getting good grades. This is our favorite place. Chef was one of the best we have had. Very good food and a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Best show in town, every time I go there I leave with too much eaten, and a to go box as well, totally worth the wait, and the cost.

Really enjoyed eating here. We sat at the Sushi Bar to avoid the hour long wait for a table as the place was packed. He service was good and the sushi was excellent. The Hope roll is awesome! Everything was really good and very reasonably priced. This is definitely a place to go if you are craving Sushi in Soringfield!

We're from the area, and eat here about once a month. The food is always delicious; your regular hibachi style, but excellent sushi. The service is often good because the meal price is usually high, so the tips are good for them. However, our service tonight was anything but good. I realize it is Friday night, but we ordered sushi... More

The WORST experience in a restaurant that I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing at the Springfield, MO branch. After being informed of a 30minute wait (which was actually more around 40-50minutes) the manager was being very rude to both me and the customers that were asking him simple questions while the sweaty and out of breath man fumbled...

We had hibachi chicken and the steak and shrimp... Came with soup and salad.. Both were pretty good..Chicken was average I've had much better... Steak and shrimp were good... The cook was semi entertaining... Gotta remember it's Missouri... Not a place to relax and enjoy the meal... Seems like their main concern is get you in... And get you out... More
