Another great meal.

We dined here with 11 in our party. With our reservation we were seated promptly and drink order taken immediately. As for the food. I think between all of us we had ell the meats available. All were excellent. Every part of our meal was cooked perfectly and as requested. Our chef was very friendly... read more

We loved this place! Our chef was awesome! Funny, but never vulgar or disrespectful. The food was perfect and the portions huge. Best ginger dressing we've had at any hibachi restaurant. Can't wait to go back.

Really great sushi, hibachi was delicious, large portions. I would recommend to others. The only thing that I found that was negative was that the bathroom needed some attention (cleaning), my feet stuck to the floor.

We love Japanese and while it wasn't our first choice of the night... it is where we landed for our dinner. Let's talk about the negatives of the evening so we can talk about the positives. Negatively speaking our server wasn't the best. Glasses went empty, help was no where to be found and when asked about ordering sushi, he... More

The food was very good and our chef was friendly and talented. The portions were large and it was a good value for the money. The service was friendly, if a bit slow. The restaurant needs a bit of updating.

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.

We have been going here since we got married in 2009. We moved here in 2010. Ever since we have been going on our birthdays because they have always given a free dinner on your birthday with the proper id to prove it is your birthday. We get there last night and they no longer give a free dinner on... More

The staff was very friendly. The chef was hilarious. He put on a great show. The food was excellent. The amount of food was more than i have been served in other Japanese steakhouses. The prices were along the line with other Japanese steakhouses. I will definitely go there again when in the area. I recommend this reataurant for good... More

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.
