Kinkaku is by far the best Japanese Steakhouse in Sevier County! Their sushi is awesome! 3 rolls for $15.95. Each roll of sushi is like 8 pieces! Such a good deal! Their hibachi is phenomenal! Not only do you get your choice of meat or seafood(try the salmon), you also get vegetables, rice, and lo mein noodles. That is our... More

As veterans of Japanese Teppenyaki dining we were disappointed in the food here. The soup was not what we have ever been served, my wife ordered extra veggies which never showed up, my daughter ordered the kids steak, which the chef missed.

The food is very good. I liked the show they put on while cooking in front of you. The price was a little high, but I had leftovers that I had for a second meal

We called the place ahead of time to see how long a wait would be for 11 people. They responded 30 seconds to long? We show up and wait 15 minutes just to get a seat than another 15 minutes to get our drink orders. I ordered Chicken Teriyaki and my Daughter orders Hibachi Chicken. They were cooked together, when... More

My family and I stopped by while on vacation and loved it! The food was delicious and priced reasonably. The chef at the grill was very entertaining and put on a great show. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. Our meals came with soup, salad, rice, veggies, and noodles. They give you more than enough to eat... More

My wife and I enjoy Japanese show cooking and have eaten at these restaurants all over America so when we drove by on the way to our cottage we knew we had to give it a try. I expected the place to be packed on a Saturday night especially since it was a holiday weekend but the place was vacant.... More

Not that it was bad, but I was too anytime in Japan and that show the guy does in kind of a Bennihana style looked to me always kind of funny. The stuff was good, the marinade was equally too sweet without any need, and I knew I was the only one to be blamed.
