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.

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.

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.

Our chef was skilled and very entertaining for the kids (ages 7 & 8) The food was the basic same hibachi or teriyaki style you would get at any of theses japanese places & was delicious. Starts with the soup & salad and then the chef comes and cooks your food you ordered in front of you. The kids LOVED... More
