This place is very consistent---a hard thing to accomplish in the area. I recommend the salmon, scallops, chicken, steak, King Roll, Crazy Roll, Gyoza/pot stickers. We usually get take out (usually consisting of some of the items mentioned) and it's always a quick errand. (We ate in the restaurant itself once with my Mom and she really enjoyed it.) I... More

By far worst hibachi grill I have ever been too! I have been to Sakura in Bismarck and it is wonderful so expected same in Minot! The rice had little to no soy sauce added which made it basically white rice with egg and pepper... The noodles I watched as he added sauce and how dry there were and when... More

The show was entertaining. The food was good except the steak that was ordered rare was definietly not. The scallops were very good, done just right. A bit on the pricey side. A call martini had so many extra charges it was funny. Martini price + call charge + up charge + olive charge. The olives were small and cheap... More

My husband and I ate a couple of times there, food is really good. I loved the fry sushi and the regular sushi too. The fry ice cream is always good. For sure we will be back soon

A Non-Happy Mother's/Birthday Day! We had reservations for a party of 10 at the hibachi table and got sat on time. We received our drinks and ordered our hibachi. The group across from us finished their food and a new party was seated before our chef arrived. We ended up waiting 30 minutes, entertaining our 3 young children, before for... More

This Japanese restaurant is very expensive but the food is good. We sat at a hibachi table and watched the chef give us a show while he cooked it. It was fun, but for me, the entertainment ends with the novelty of it. Once you have seen it, it becomes just very expensive food with a gimmick. I would definitely... More

We sat at one of the Teppanyaki tables. I'll admit it was a little cheesy as far as entertainment goes, but the food was awesome.

This place is a good thing for Minot. A little something extra for a special occasion or just a Friday night. We went for a birthday. Good food! Everything was well seasoned & cooked beautifully. However, the service was quick & cold. It was what do you want and here ya go. The chef doing our show was the same... More

If you're looking for dinner and a show, this is the place. If you're looking for great customer service and reasonable prices, go elsewhere. Every time we've gone with large groups and made reservations nearly a week ahead of time, we're seated AT LEAST 45 minutes past our reservation time. The most recent visit we had, I didn't even get... More
