Food was very good, but how can you do hibachi bad. Waitress was clueless and very, very slow. Even for a laid back vacation she was slow.

Our chef was very good, funny and entertaining. Hibachi food was great. The only thing I did not like was the variety of salad dressings. Only 2 were offered and I did not like either.

What can I say, everything was perfect , nice and clean place, great service, very entertaining (and good) Chef. Excellent in every aspect. The Hibachi was delicious, first they serve you soup and salad (both great) and then the delicious rice,noodles and veggies.

I go at least once a month to Lil Tokyo, and can't imagine anything better. The sushi chef lets us know what's fresh so we can make a decision (very hard to choose what delicious sushi to try each time). I can't get enough of the Japanese Eggrolls and the Snow-Crab salad, and absolutely love everything that Frankie makes. I... More

Frankie the sushi chef was amazing. Our hibachi was cooked to perfection not salty like other places, fresh cuts of meat, and vegetables fresh. Their soup, ginger dressing outstanding! No place on the beach beats it but shh its a secret because this is where we go as locals!

Had a great dinner. Party of six, tasty apps (squid and octopus salads were lovely). We all had hibachi dinners. Those that ordered steak or filet mignon they were cooked to order perfectly and the filet melted in your mouth. Fried rice and noodles were good as well. Not salty at all like some places. I forget our chefs name... More

Just had dinner there for 2nd time and really enjoyed it. Although a typical hibachi place the prices are actually pretty reasonable for a Hibachi restaurant and unlike some, the price includes fried rice, noodles and a shrimp appetizer. Food is also pretty good. Chef Billy was appropriately amusing. Overall a good deal! We will return next year.
