We have eaten at Sawa in Eatontown a couple of times and both times we felt like we paid too much for average food. The staff is nice, atmosphere is ok, but the food is average at best. The teriyaki chicken was on the bland side, the chicken looks like it is frozen strips of chicken that was warmed up.... More

One of the best Hibachi and Sushi places in Monmouth. The staff is always friendly and the fact that you can get reservations for Hibachi is great.

Great atmosphere, sitting around the grill, having your meal prepared in front of you. Very entertaining and attentive staff. Outstanding food. I fell in love with their oyster shots.

Close to our hotel, this was a nice change of pace for us. Meal was typical hibachi-style and service wasn't the greatest but I personally thought our food was well-prepared, tasty, and not badly priced given the quality and quantity of the food. We did not try the sushi so I can't evaluate. I would definitely give them another try... More

This sushi restaurant has the best specialty rolls around. The sushi is always great, and their drinks are amazing. I reccommend sitting at the bar. You get served faster, and its always fun sitting by the bar.

This is now my favorite place to go when I'm in the mood for Hibachi steak. Of all the Hibachi steakhouses I've been to, the portions here are the largest. It's a great place to take friends and family and lots of fun for all watching the masters cook.
