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... read more

Our sincere apologies for your confusion, but our Early Bird special ends at 6:00pm. If you had made your reservation and arrived during the Early Bird special hours, between 3:00pm and 6:00pm, we would have loved to give you the special discount. Unfortunately you made your reservation at the end of the Early Bird special. If you would be willing... More

The word "Chirashi" means "scattered," so this is basically a big bowl of rice mixed with fish, vegetables, and additional ingredients of your choice. What I received was Sashimi with a side of rice... wish restaurants would do just a little home work to maintain the integrity of the food. On a brighter note, the Sashimi was fresh and great...

In the mood for Sushi, but the server offered us the early bird Hibachi meal. It was a delicious meal, so we had sushi on the side. I shared it with my daughter. It was a great portion to share. Delicious shrimp and chicken with lots of vegetables.
