Horrible experience. Go somewhere else!

8 of us went here for my brother's 30th birthday. We advised the waiter we were celebrating a birthday. The chef came out and did not do any tricks or anything entertaining about cooking the food and only spoke to us to confirm our orders. Very disappointing. People pay for the entertainment.

I had the hibachi dinner as well as tamago sushi to start. The service was fantastic but overall the food and the lack of variety really put a damper on the evening. Salad and Soup: Salad was beginning to brown and had a large pool of water on the bottom. It wasn't anything to get excited about. The taste was... More

The place is growing outdated - needs a little cleaning, paint, just general maintenance. The Hibachi chef we had was just going through the motions - no artistry to his work, just cook the food and move on to the next setting...There are better places

Sushi was average but reasonably priced. Hibachi was standard but of course you really just go for the show. Overall, it was great for a large group and the service was good.

Stopped in for a late dinner. Decent atmosphere and quick service. Sushi selection was limited and sushi was very average. I think this is more of a teppanyaki type place that happens to have a small sushi bar.

The server was extremely busy as they were short staffed. The chef was just ok at the hibachi bar. They did not have the correct order for our dinner or sushi order. The salads were all watery. They also need to clean the bathrooms.

Our business hosts took us here for supper. They are regulars here. The staff were very attentive. The chef was very adept and entertaining at the grill in front of us. I chose to order from the sushi menu (we had to ask for that). The Tempura was light and tasty. I ordered an avacado maki and beef tataki. The... More

The food here is good and is priced what you would pay at most hibachi restaurants. The staff were very accommodating and the chef was a top notch entertainer.

We were staying at a hotel (Residence Inn) down the street and decided to try this restaurant. We opted for Hibachi. The service was very good, the chef was entertaining and the food was delicious. We found the prices reasonable for the amount of food received and the quality of the food. The portions were huge, and we ended up... More
