We are huge fans of Japanese hibachi and this restaurant definitely delivered. We are from Indiana and took friends with us this time. We had a wonderful dining experience. They enjoyed the food prep right in front of us and absolutely loved the taste of all the food. All of us got the filet mignon and scallops and were not... More

Our large group of varied ages had just finished a great few hours at a local fun spot and we wanted the fun to continue. A good Japanese steak house can be even better with a group. The 12 of us found this place and went for it. Basic on the inside, but the service and food was excellent. The... More

Went here with our family of 7 after we tried to get in at Bennets Barbecue. There was a small wait of about 20minutes but the staff was very accommodating. You could tell they were way understaffed but we saw that was a common theme with a lot of places in Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg on our trip. Apparently this... More

We decided to go here on Christmas day for dinner. We were seated immediately. The server and our chef was excellent! Couldn't ask for nicer people! Food was most excellent, sushi was some of the best we have ever eaten! Very clean. Best Japanese!

Best Japanese food I've ever eat. It's very entertaining watching someone prepare your food right in front of you on a grill. I got Steak and Shrimp and it was absolutely delicious. Must try if your looking for great food.
