We are here on 12/04/09, try to eat there every time we visit. This was the worst service and cook (entertainment wise). Food was good, portions were large like usual.

On our way home from our Myrtle Beach Vacation we had to make a detour to Pigeon Forge to eat at our Favorite Japanese Steakhouse. We always stop if we are in the area. I think they have the best Ginger dressing. The food is alway good and the staff is friendly.

We had Hibachi and it very good . The chef was funny and very skilled with his cooking tricks. The waitress was new and very attentive to our needs. The prices were good and the food quality was good. We steered clear of the Sushi based on Yelp reviews.

This was our second visit as we had dined here three years ago! The food was very good and our chef was very entertaining as he engaged the entire group I to the experience. My daughter earned a new nick name, the chef had us catching rice balls in our mouth, etc. The prices are very affordable vs. most Hibachi... More

My family and I usually try to find this style restaurant when we go on vacation at least once, and so we saw there were a couple in Pigeon forge,Tn. We decided to go here. It was not crowded when we got there and so the host sat us fairly quickly. When the chef came out, and he started joking... More
