Friendly staff and great food!!

We were looking for a place to meet up with some friends for dinner and we are all not from Asheville. We looked on trip advisor and gave this restaurant a chance. I am so glad we did. It wasn't that busy being that it was a Monday night and rainy. When we walked in we asked for the hibachi... read more

Having had Hibachi grill food in native Japan, Malaysia and the UK, this restaurant was a poor imitation. If the chef had worn a clean jacket it may have improved the experience, unfortunately most of the food tasted of the burnt sauces because he only used the hotest part of the plate. As for entertainment we had a few seconds... More

This is our family's favorite place to eat. The staff is supper friendly and we love the suchi chef. We travel from another county just to eat there. It is a family tradition to eat there on our birthdays. No doubt, the best suchi in Asheville.

Had our daughters 18th birthday and a party of 12. Drinks rarely refilled. Hibachi chef acted like we were putting him out when we asked for sauces. He actually left the grill and went to get jugs of sauce. Several in party ordered sesame chicken, chef said " we're out of sesame seeds" we requested no egg in the rice...he... More

if you are going for a good chef show .. this is the place... food was just OK .. cooked just as ordered.. just not good quality.. I had steak and scallops.. steak just tasted like soy sauce... scallops were a tad rubbery... veggies were fresh just not very much in serving.. Like title says.. Just go for a chef... More

My wife and I were in Asheville the weekend of 10/18 and decided to go here because it was near our hotel. It was not very busy, and we sat at a table by ourselves. The staff was very friendly. Our chef Dave, the "white ninja" was entertaining. We had a shrimp tempura roll that was great, my wife had... More

We recently enjoyed dinner on a Friday night at this restaurant. We must admit, we were skeptical when we walked in. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all on a Friday night. At first glance, we weren't so sure we made a good choice. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and were escorted to a small room with two... More

The sushi is to die for, the hibachi grill is amazing, and the staff are wonderful! Highly recommend for either sit down or take out. If you're looking for a cocktail, definitely try the Maitai.

Wonderful food and service. Could not have asked for a better Anniversary meal. Service was very fast even on a Friday night. If visiting Asheville again will definitely go back.

We love to eat hibachi especially on vacation. This was pretty good and reasonably priced. Have never gotten appetizer shrimp served with the tails or seen a chef make the onion volcano with his hands. Otherwise dinner was great.
