The staff is very nice and take good care of you. The tampura was nicely prepared, not outstanding. The salad left one disappointed - lettice only, but ginger dressing was good though watery. The soup was good. The rice, a large amount, was soaked in soy sauce, salt, salt, salt. The main course, steak, was floating in soy sauce, salt,... More

If you're a fan of Japanese Hibachi and huge portions of food, you will love it here. You get almost 1lb of rice with your email. If you've never been to a hibachi restaurant, it just means your meal is cooked right in front of you on a giant hot plate.

Went for my birthday. We were sat by ourselves in the back, this has never happened before, I thought it was Great. The server was prompt, the Chef was Excellent. We have eaten here several times. I do not think the menu changed with the name change. Nice show and Great Food.

This is right around the corner from us and we've been wanting to go for months! Four of us went to celebrate my birthday. I made reservations online (fantastic) and was sent a confirmation email. We could not be seated until everyone arrived so sat at bar and took advantage of happy hour with really cheap prices!! We shared a... More

We went here on Father's Day and had a great experience. We were initially told we would have a 10 minute wait, but it turned out to be about three minutes before we were seated. Our waiter could have been a bit more friendly (he was very serious and never smiled), but he gave us great service, so I can't... More

Another neighborhood favorite Katsu(formerly known as Yokoso) has reemerged with another delicious choice of Sushi or Hibachi style foods. Many of the same menu items are still available from Yokoso. Kampai!

The rib eyes steaks have been cut super thin. Very cheap cut of meat. No flavor at all. Impossible to get a medium rare steak. They should have more than a 5 to 6 oz rib eye.

My husband and I have been visiting this restaurant for years. Recently, there has been a name change and possibly a change in management as well. Some things are better. I thought the sushi was fresher, tastier and more generous portion wise than before. The chef was also good, he realized it was a family gathering where people wanted to... More

Went for my father's birthday. There was no wait and were seated quickly. The waitress lacked personality and the chef had too much. He was talking so much he messed up a few orders. The rice tasted old the ribeye was meh. They had several specials which I appreciated but still. They also charge 5.99 for the birthday song and... More

Enjoyed the restaurant, food and the staff. If you get there in time for the early bird special, you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck.
