Average hibachi style Japanese food

The ginger dressing is rather sweet. I cannot finish it. The white sauce is also a bit sweet. All in all, it is just an average hibachi style of food.

I eat at Hokkaido a lot with my grandfather! It's by far my favorite Japanese restaurant! I would suggest it to anyone! (They have amazing broccoli!)

Fast service, very good food, reasonable portions and all at a VERY reasonable price. Always see lots of locals and college students -- folks that are looking for good food at a good price. Hibachi chicken is very good. Sweet carrots are a nice side item. Eat in or take out.

We eat here at least once a week, better food and a lot cheaper than Makoto's. Highly recommended if your looking for hibachi cuisine in Boone.

it is way better priced then the higher end places and the food is in my opinion better then mokotos. they unfortunately don't have sushi and the atmosphere is so-so but if your going for the food this is the better bargain for sure.

My boyfriend and I go here or order takeout from here literally every other week. The food we get (chicken and steak combination, which comes with rice, sweet carrots, and sipping soup) is always delicious. When you sit down, service isn't AMAZING, but all are friendly and polite. Order is taken quickly and food is out super fast! LOVE Hokkaido!!

We eat here a few times a month. The food is always fresh and hot. The service is always quick and friendly. I like to go for lunch, the price is affordable and you get plenty to eat.

Went here for dinner the other night. Me and my two friends walked in and were immediately helped to our table. All of the dinner entrees come with a salad and a cup of soup. For the salad you have the option of shrimp or ginger "sauce" as the dressing. The salad and soup were nothing great - just something... More

While in Boone last weekend, my husband and I decided to try the Hokkaido Japanese Restaurant based on some local reviews. When we got there, it was not crowded and we were seated immediately. The server was very quick to come get our drink orders and returned quickly to take our orders. We both ordered hibachi steak. Before the main... More

Not bad, but I suggest Makoto's if you're going for quality food.
