Not Bad for Fast Food Japanese

OK, this is not a 5 star Japanese restaurant -- let's be clear on that. It's fast food Japanese and you get what you pay for. A couple can eat for under $20 (drinks included). The food is decent, especially the Hibachi steak, but the portions are not huge. You get a lot of rice and the rest is... read more

Saturday night so we expected a wait to be seated. We were pleasantly surprised when we had to wait only 20 mins. to get a table. Soup was as expected, should have ordered the shrimp sauce for my salad dressing because the ginger dressing was gross and dumped on wet lettuce like vomit. That's when the fun began. From the...

This joint has more salt than Bonneville. Food is mediocre at best and the show isn't that good either. The chefs are either from just south of Texas or the best Spanish speaking Japanese people I have ever heard say “más sal por favor”. The actual entree portions are small. You’ll get a huge glob of rice, some veggies, and... More

We went here for Japanese food. We understand we are in US and it is not Japan, but, the mexican staff here has NO IDEA of how to make anything Japanese. Everything we got had a taste of "south of the border" to it. They do not use the correct cooking oil, wrong flower for frying as even the wrong... More

Great cook with flash and style made our dinner right in front of us. Food is excellent! Dinner is a little pricey for what your getting but we always go for lunch and we are quite happy with those prices! It's a great restaurant.

Anytime you go to a habachi style Japanese restaurant, you cannot set your expectations too high, or you will be disappointed every time...this place was no exception. We didn't set our expectations too high and guess what? We weren't disappointed! We were sat at the table with 2 other couples, making us 6 people. Each of us ordered something different.... More

They have the average japanese take out type of food. They will cook in front of your audience if you request or take out is available.

This has always been my favorite restaurant. I hadn't went for a while but I took my kids recently for the first time. They're six and eight and I thought they'd enjoy it. Portions are large like normal. Lunch is half the price of dinner but the same amount of food. You always get stuffed and have enough to eat... More

The Sogos on Poplar Tent has great food as they all do, but the difference is the service. Juan is an employee at this location and he is a major disapointment. He is always on his cell phone, gets my orders incorrect, and acts as if I the customer is an inconvience to him. Do not go to this location.... More
