Best in area

I've been here a couple times now and have to say this is by far the best hibachi place in the area! Service is great both by the cook and the wait staff.

Had a few drinks at the bar before dinner. I drink hurricanes which most bartenders don't make so I settle on something else. Bartender offered to look it up, another bartender stepped up and not only knew recipe but made best hurricane I think I've had. Server was great, chef was outstanding, food off the chart! Great to go with... More

The wxpirience was much like many other times I've been here. The staff seemed friendly enough and the chefs are always a blast. The sushi was great, try the firecracker roll. The hibachi was good as well. The couple in front of us had to walk over and get their own refil on water once. Never seen that before but... More

I love this place! Every time I come the Chef always provides awesome entertainment (even though we were the only 2 at the table). We had very good conversation and could not have asked for a better date night! Strongly recommended if you're in the mood for some great Hibachi!

Second time in Jacksonville, first time here. Daughter and friend loves the place and I did too. Our chef was very entertaining - funny and personable. Food was excellent, and there was a lot of it. Drinks were excellent. Lots of customers the night we were there and the atmosphere was very nice. Will be back.

My husband & I come here all the time. We never have to wait. It does start to get busy around 630pm or so. It's less busy on a non-payday weekend. My husband & I have been at the Hibachi side of the restaurant and the Sushi side. We enjoy both sides. The staff is friendly, your drink never gets... More

Our Chef was very good and entertaining. The atmosphere is NOTHING, The Ladies room needs work.. The shrimp appy is so small.. The food was tasty but nothing special.. We were a tad rushed too and the place was NOT busy...

Place filled up fast. We went as family for the holiday. Had hibachi- 2 steaks and1 chicken. Prompt start, server was attentive, chef was a dud. No special effects or tricks. Food was delicious and on pace. So-so. I've had far better hibachi.

Hakata has always been a great place to visit in Jacksonville for Hibachi Dinner. I've come by several times for dinner and there never seems to be too long of a wait before our chef arrives. The Chefs entertain well with their jokes, knife flipping, egg dropping, and onion volcano demonstrations. Most importantly the food is always delicious whether you... More
