I purchased a gift card from this location. When I went to use it, it was empty. I had to file a complaint with the BBB to get a refund. AVOID THIS PLACE

One thing weighing heavily in their favor here is the fact that they will seat you almost immediately on arrival, and they don't wait for the entire grill area to,fill before starting the show. Quite unusual for a Japanese steak house. Excellent value and very good selection of options. Good entertainment for the entire family. The sushi is not too... More

Convenient location. Often go here for hibachi. Recently have been going there for sushi and they do a really great job. Lots to choose from and the presentation is great.

We have eaten at many hibachi restaurants over the past 30 years. This one rates as one of only a few TERRIBLE places to eat. We were the only ones seated at the hibachi table.

Love this place!! In Lima about once a week for Business. Always stop if hungry. Nice place, nice people, clean and friendly. Love the signature rolls, can't go wrong with any of them. My fav's are the "Jalapeno Bomber" or "Red Dragon".....if just want a "light" lunch, I get the "Wasabi Mayo Salmon" appetizer......YUMMO!!

Stopped here for supper since it was close to the Holiday Inn and was not impressed. The food was cold by the time it was brought to the table and the staff seemed like they could really care less.

The food was very good and fresh. The service is better if your table is not crowded. A little expensive.
