Hibachi Fun

I have found this particular restaurant to be consistently customer friendly, always very clean and just a nice place to stop by. I enjoy the free Miso soup and of course the Hibachi show. The prices are very reasonable-no strong arm tactics. You can also eat at the regular dinning tables where you... read more

This is a fairly large family oriented establishment in a strip mall. They have both hibachi and regular tables for sushi. We went on a Sat evening; the place really was quite busy. The restaurant is light and airy but because of it's open quality it can get quite noisy. It's a family style restaurant so a crying kid at... More

Went here with 2 other couples and decided not to go to the hibachi tables. We all ordered different types of food from sushi to teriyaki. We all had their miso soup which was served hot and tasty. There were 4 appetizers, and then our main courses. Everything was fresh, tasty, and a fair sized portion. Our waiter was attentive... More

Took my wife there for Valentines Day. We have been there many times before. We live literally 2 minutes away. Since it was Valentines Day it was crowded. We had NO RESERVATIONS. Believe it or not we were seated in less than 10 minutes for the hibachi table. We sat with nice couples. Including a couple that lives down the... More

After multiple trips I can affirm the food is consistently good and the service and decor is so so. I love to eat here but it is not a place I would bring a date or VIP. Even to try and relax over your food is difficult because the seating is sooo hard. If they would just spend a little... More

Service and prices are great. Love the various sushi specials, especially the phoenix! My DH doesn't like sushi, but they always have great alternatives for him. We both enjoy it - and the green tea ice cream!!

Went to lunch on Friday. The buy 2 rolls get the third for free comes with miso soup and salad. Soup tasty and hot. Salad fresh with typical ginger dressing. The rolls were presented well and were fresh and tasty without excessive amounts of rice. The fish fresh and a nice size piece in each bite Worthy of a return... More

The food at Mazu is good but the service is awful. I hate when they bring soup, salad and appetizer all at the same time. It makes me crazy. Everytime I go, I ask them not to do that....and they still do anyway. You could be in and out of here within a half hour....I don't like to rush through... More

My wife and I dined here with two of our friends. All four of us have spent time in Japan, so we have a fair idea of what authentic Japanese cuisine is. I enjoyed the avocado salad, but have tasted better. I ordered a sushi special called the Casanova roll. It featured eel and was delicious. In general the menu... More

Haven't done their sushi, so don't judge this place by me if you're into sushi. However, their hiachi and tempura are very good. We've been here many times and would recommend .. and it's BYOB!!
