The food is consistently good

Atami is a cheaper Japanese restaurant, we go there at least once per month on average. You serve your own drinks, although they do bring your food out to you. One plus is the drive through on the side of the building if you just want to pick it up and go. Although be prepared to wait a little... read more

This is a Japanese Hibachi restaurant without cooking at your table. My favorite dish is the no carb version of the hibachi shrimp (the shrimp is served over lettuce as a salad with ginger dressing).

I could eat there 5 days a week and never get tired of the food. The service is excellent there and always friendly. They also have a drive-thru if needed.

Atami has great food. We eat there at least once a week! The service is great, Lana is an asset to this place. The food is consistently good and we are constantly recommending this restaurant to anyone that wants great food without the formal atmosphere.

Atami is our go-to restaurant when we want to eat good food close to home. Nothing fancy, but very good for an express restaurant. They have a huge carry-out business, but we usually choose to eat in. Their menu is simple and every item we've eaten has been very good. You order from the menu board and they bring your... More

As of 09/07/14 the store was open and the food was great. This is not a fancy place, but if you belly is empty and you want some good food, Atami is a good choice.

For an express Japanese Hibachi, this place is alright. Food tastes fresh and service is very friendly. Atmosphere is nothing special but it's very nice inside. Seems really clean. Prices are reasonable and their sweet tea is amazing for a Japanese place. Shrimp sauce is on point and you get a whole bottle at the table. XD!!

Have eaten here several times over the past year. Today asked for sweet carrots that come with the meals to be put in separate container for to go order. Two folks had to tell me that they could not do it. From appearance this Japanese restaurant is now run by Hispanics that really don't care about customer service.
