Good value for dollar. The Hibachi chef was enthusiastic and talented. We enjoyed the experience and atmosphere.

Have been here several times, and always enjoy it. Great food, expertly prepared--and a lot of fun besides!

hibachi presentation was nice but in the end we were paying for food which i believe was just ok, something you can make at home quite easily. non-hibachi food also just average. grossly overpriced menu. 2x being ther for me was enough!

This place has really gone down hill. The chefs speak little or no English, the food is average at best, the wait staff is complacent. This used to be a fun place for dinner and a show, now it is just overpriced for average food.

Beautiful restaurant , great location . Food and service was average , A little pricey. My family love hibachi, and we know most of these places in mommouth county, and you can have much better food (hibachi ) and service not far Sawa

I never complain, but MY experience is definitely something to write about. I came here with my girlfriend on a Sunday night, and our night was ruined almost the second we walked through the door. The hostess rolled her eyes and sighed as soon as we walked in. She quickly reminded us how the restaurants kitchen closes in 30 minutes... More

This is my favorite location ( they have another one in Long Branch) and my favorite hibachi anywhere. I love the little fish pond, the aquarium and the general atmosphere. I have been here for many dinners and private parties.

Arrived on a Monday night approximately 7:30 PM. Although Mondays are traditionally a "slow" day in the biz, we had no problem waiting the 20-25 minute wait we were told upon check in. We sat at the bar, which is next to the hostess desk, to have a drink and chat while we waited for our seating. The "bartender" was... More

When we want to go out for a quick dinner and are in the mood for sushi / sashimi we can depend on finding a nice selection made fresh right in front of you at the sushi bar. We even got a free "special sample" with our order. The service was fine, the chefs were probably chinese and the price... More
