Sushi, not hibachi!

A lot of the reviews on here about the hibachi- I tried the sushi. A cocktail, edamame and 3 types of rolls for under $40, you can't go wrong. The specialty rolls all sounded interesting, but I stuck with 2 classic rolls (spicy tuna and shrimp tempura) and 1 special roll (kamikaze fusion). I... read more

I could not have been happier. One of the best places I have ever eaten. It will definitely be on "my list" from now on. I will go here every trip to Charlotte.

We just left this place & it was great! My only complaint is it is a little pricey BUT our server was VERY polite & gave us an option like our Japanese restaurant at home would have had. Not only did it save us money I was able to get my beloved sushi appetizer, but it also saved us less... More

overpriced. Chicken hibachi was dry. Shrimp hibachi was fine. Soup was water with drops of soy sauce. Inconceivable for any restaurant to serve such a thing. A definite mistake.

Food prepared at a central grill while we sat around the front and sides. It turned out to be less than we expected from a mid priced restaurant. The whole place needed a good cleaning. Time to update the 70's decor.

A lot of commotion going on at this place with a lot of patrons and a busy staff trying to handle the crowd. The food is good and with very healthy portions.

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.

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 come here.
