We went for lunch and my husband had the hibachi filet mignon and I the scallops, Both were Cooked to perfection. My little ones enjoyed their shrimp hibachi as well. We also ordered yellowtail sashimi and squid sashimi both were super fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back when we return to long branch

went here last minute for July 4th/anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was nice close to the beach and the action at Pier Village. The service was great too. Unfortunately the food was not that tasty. All of the dishes that we had which included a bento box, steak dinner and sushi were just ok. They lacked flavor and the freshness I... More

This restaurant has sushi and hibachi. We ate in the Hibachi area which has about 8 hibachi tables that hold about 10 people each. The menu has chicken, steak, seafood & you can order a combo of either items. They cook on the tables in front of you and do a show with their knives and utensils which is fun.... More

This place is definitely one of pier villages best restaurants and the atmosphere is very relaxing and lounge like. The sushi selection is incredible with such creative twist and and fresh taste to them all. Come back here every summer and wouldn't have it any other way to have such great sushi.

Took my 11y/o son there. The food was excellent. He really loved the volcano sushi roll. It is a bit expensive though.

Hibachi was very good, and chef was very skilled and entertaining. Prices were average for Japanese steakhouse, but you get a lot of food for what you pay.

Located by the boardwalk in Long Branch. Tasteful, neat and clean interior. There is a bar area, a regular sit-down restaurant, and an area with hibachi style dining prepared at your table. We ate in the sit-down area and had sushi. Wait staff seemed disorganized. Twice, once after the waitress had taken our drink order and then after she had... More

There's nothing wrong with their food. I really enjoy the atmosphere here, and the fact that its in pier village and you can walk around, etc. My problem with them is the little things that they do. #1 Hardly ANY of the waiters/waitresses speak any English! I really can't understand what they are saying half the time and that's why... More
