great expirience

visited couple of times with the family and had the Hibachi dinner. the sushi is excellent with lots of variations. the Hibachi show is great and very very tasty, but you do pay for it at the cost of each item.

The service was prompt and we were attended to very well the entire time. The food lacked flavor to me without drowning it in white "yummy sauce". The salad was also completely drowned in ginger. It was quite noisy even for a hibachi place the thing that put me off was when the chef started squirting some type of liquid... More

We had sushi, a teppanyaki table and everything we tried was great, we all really liked it. The only thing was the decor and general feel of the restaurant, which is just ok.

No ramen. We can attribute this to a miscommunication, but... More
