Dinner

Needed a quick meal, so went for Hibachi. Liked the ginger salad; our meal was chicken and steak with extra shrimp appetizer. Everything was properly prepared as ordered. So much fried rice, so we took some home to use for lunch the following day. Have yet to have a bad dinner, so we continue to... read more

I love to go to this restaurant. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday and the food was great as usual. We went at lunch time because it is a little pricey at dinner time.

Being a Japanese Steak House, I thought it would be of quality! WRONG! I arrived around 7pm which should be prime dining in a business environment where this restaurant is located. Very few people at two hibachi tables. This should have been another hint! I ordered the filet and lobster. The filet not bad, but the lobster was so over... More

The classic Japanese Steakhouse you find around America, cute little place with great cooks. Nice for family, friends, business or romantic date.

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. We could get the same food half the... More

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The place is growing outdated - needs a little cleaning, paint, just general maintenance.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.
