Best Hibachi Place Around

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

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!
