Tasty variety to suit all

The dinner was a various selection of dishes. The young members loved the shuhi and the habashi meals were very tasty and well cooked. The large area made listening to the chef or other members difficult. As the arrival of a number of people the echo a problem.

I've had sushi all around the myrtle Beach area and I have to say this is by far the worst, the fish wasn't fresh, the one roll we had had seared scallops on it which were burnt to a crisp, and all the tempura tasted like the oil which means it probably hasn't been changed in a week or two

Visited Lil Tokyo recently for my birthday while at the beach. I was able to call ahead to make reservations. When we arrived, they had a table ready and waiting for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our hibachi dinner. The meat choices were plentiful and everything that came with the dinner was very filling. My one minor complaint was that I... More

Our guy wasn't that entertaining - he appeared to be tired. The wait was unusually long for hibachi. The food was nothing to write home about, although the fried rice was yummy

We spent such a wonderful dinner at Lil Tokyo. This place is awesome. Staff is great and the food is simply D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. We were a group of 7 people and some of us had sushi, some of us had chicken and shrimp hibachi. The sushi was so great it simply melted in my mouth (the black jack roll) and the... More

Went for dinner tonight with our daughters. The hostess was really nice and the chef was great too. Food was really flavorful, better than other hibachi restaurants that we've been too. Also we liked that you also got garlic flavored noodles along with the rice. Overall a great visit. Next time we'd try to make the early bird time (4-6... More
