I went with my husband and two teen boys while on vacation. It was a good experience. Our chef was entertaining and engaging. Between us we tried nearly every meat -- filet mignon, shrimp, scallops, chicken, and lobster. All were delicious except the scallops, which were really chewy. Meals come with fried rice AND noodles. We go to places like... More

I'll be honest...when my wife suggested this place while we were walking around Pigeon Forge, I was less than enthusiastic about it....but I was pleasantly surprised. I've been to a number of these places, and many of them are terribly over-priced. This place had an excellent lunch menu with great prices. The whole staff was very pleasant and attentive. Our...

We finally decided to dive in to check out the food at this place. We live in the area and love good hibachi. When we first walked in we had the impression that it was no going to be a good place. It appears to look dirty and the decor was not very inviting. We decided to take a chance... More

The chef was constantly interacting with us. We laughed quite a bit. Food excellent. We were very pleased. Wasn't too much more money than us eating out at Friday..

The sushi was amazing. They had a deal that included 3 sushi rolls for 15.95 and it included high dollar sushi rolls. Dean the sushi chef was entertaining!

If you are looking for something a little different than the normal bbq and burgers that are on the main strip try Kinkaku Japanese Steakhouse. They have a GREAT hibachi dinner menu. We went there for lunch one day and liked it so much we returned there for dinner the next day. Prices are SUPER cheap on their lunch menu... More

Food was typical but expensive ... The restaurant should be cleaner for the prices they were charging. I had filet mignon & scallops. It was about $20... Our chief was friendly .. but was too chattie though. We had our fried rice for a long time until the meat/seafood & veggie made it to the plate. The bathroom was old,... More

The chef was entertaining, but the food was average. When the bill came, we had a fee added to our bill which they explained as a "service fee", but to us it looked like an added tip. We have NEVER eaten at a restaurant that assesses a "service fee". We were at a table of 5, but we were a... More
