BEST RESTURANT IN JACKSONVILLE... HANDS DOWN!!!!

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... read 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

My husband and I decided to check out this place after reading good reviews. The atmosphere is very nice and we were greeted promptly at the door. We wanted the hibachi. They told us it would be a 10 min wait, so we sat at the bar. About 15 mins or so, we were seated at the hibachi grill. Another... More

You can eat at the hibachi or just go in and sit at a table and order. The sushi is good and the food is delicious. The cooks at the hibachi make it really fun and kids really enjoy it.

We have been coming here for many years and keep coming back. The sushi is great, the hibachi is outstanding & drinks are awesome. It's family owned and operated. Can't wait to come back soon!

This was a pleasant surprise and a nice little treat. This was my first trip to Jacksonville and my first restaurant experience. This was a suggestion from my friends who joined me for dinner. We went for the sushi and it did not disappoint. Salmon nigiri is one of my favorites and it was nice and fresh. Tasty saki. I... More

After 30 plus minutes, we only have soup and salad. The salad is very plain. No chef yet to cook even though there is only one other party in the restaurant.
