My friend was celebrating her birthday and invited many of us to come. Arrived on a Saturday night and was welcomed well at the door. There were 2 tables each with their own teppanyaki. I ordered the salmon which came with rice, mixed vegetables, and ice cream. It also came with soup and a side salad. The chef put on... More

My wife and I dined here because we were in the area. We were seated immediately. The tiled aisle ways were slick as if they were mopped with grease. Coming in from the rain, we had to be quite careful not to slip and fall. At our table, we noticed the cleanliness of the restaurant was less than desirable. The... More

Unusually the place was not crowded and we sat alone and watched our food being prepared for us - maybe we got a little extra rice this way!!! It meant that we could tell the "chef" to do away with the trick since we had seen them a million times before - concentrate on cooking our dinner and we'll be... More

While the prices are a solid $10 less than comparable meals at the more well-known chains, and the quality and taste are a bit better (IMO) the place just has a rather chaotic feel to it at times. We had a great chef and all, but to the side of our table were what seemed to be all the staff... More

I am a "local" to this area, and this used to be one of our favorite places. However, I have watched this place start going downhill over the past year. Tonight, we brought some friends here for the first time, and they were as disappointed as we were. The problem isn't the food or the chefs... all of that is... More

Leaving the restaurant right now. Came here for my wife birthday during the week. The place was dead which is fine, but they kept milking the clock to wait and see if more people would come. We ordered sushi and it was overpriced and mediocre at best. Another two guys came in asking about the dollar sushi on their website... More

Amazing sushi! If you're in a hurry it may not be the best place, but the food is great!

Hamada is a great place and an excellent value when compared to the "trendier" hibachi style places. Sure it may be a little outdated inside, but the food is great and much cheaper than any other Japanese steakhouse we've been to. We've been customers for years here, and we've always been treated right, so you will not be disappointed here.

Don't get me wrong - I am a firm Trip advisor believer and user. However I should sometimes take more time to read the reviews and also back-out if a place does not meet claimed standards - especially with a Trip advisor sticker on its main door. According to the opinions of most reviewers we decided to dine at this... More

My husband and I come here as often as we could afford it. We come here for our birthdays, anniversaries, mothers day and whatever celebration we can think of. It is THAT good. The owners are very friendly people, always making sure that their customers are happy and having a great experience in their restaurant. I feel so comfortable being... More
