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.

I have been to plenty of Japanese restaurants and this was not the best, but it was not the worst. It could be because we were there close to closing time. Their drinks are over priced especially the ones without alcohol. It is not a restaurant to brag about. Only because it was my friends birthday we went there.

Habachi places galore in Jacksonville for some reason. This one had excellent food and allowed a full sushi bar menu at the hibachi grill -- allowing different party members to choose between Hibachi or Sushi for their meal.

The food was excellent ! The shows at all of the Japanese chop chop things are about the same. I have to say unfortunately the tricks aren't new and at this point we like going for the food because it is hot and served right to you. So if you have kids or someone new to the show by all... More
