After experiencing traditional Yakiniku (Japanese bbq) in Japan in January, I was desperately hoping to find one local. JFX is a hidden gem, a little difficult to find/carpark on a Saturday night but great value and a must do! The food was exactly like Japan. The service the same. Can't wait to go back to Japan and have Yakiniku again,... More

There are two options for the barbecue buffet, with a broader menu for the more expensive option. A la carte dining is also available, although I think the barbecue buffet offers the best value. The quality of... More

Had dinner with hubby there quite a few times. Enjoy it every time. Having the Japanese spirit while cooking and chatting, we had lots of fun there. They do BYO, but not bring your beer, wine is fine. We brought a pack of our favorite beer one night, but the manager told us choosing their beer only, which is fine.... More
