Great atmosphere. Always so much fun - the waiters cooking at the table, making jokes along the way. Very kid friendly as well. When my kids order soup, they brought ice chips that they could put in there in case the soup was too hot. I've ordered several things over the times I have visited, and never had a bad... More

This was our first Teppan experience here...It was also our last. Our "Chef" had no idea what to do and spent his time looking at the other cooks to mimic their attempts. Our cooking table was wiped down with the stomach turning rag that gave off a stench that made me want to leave...If a rag is that filthy I... More

I've eaten in both the Teppanyaki and sushi sides of the restaurant, and I found that the teppanyaki (chef cooking in front of the guests who are multiple reservations thrown on one table), to be quite average with the usual fair as offered in most teppanyaki restaurants. Every one I've been to seem to offer the same food items (steaks,... More

We used to go to Cho Cho Sans all the time in 2011 and before. then suddenly they changed ownership. Prices went sky high and the service was poor. It is such a shame because we really enjoyed going here for sushi at one time.

They also offer Teppan style dining where a chef comes to a table with a stove heated to 550 degrees Fahrenheit... More

We went to Cho Cho San recently for appetizers and drinks. They had a good selection of sushi and other items on their Happy Hour Menu. We tried the soft shell crab roll and tempura rolls. We liked what we ordered and the prices were good. Will try them again.

The garlic edemame is the best! Its a must have. We have dined here twice now having sushi. The food is good and fresh. The specialty rolls on the menu are overwhelming and should really be cut down to 10 or 12. But the sevice is good and nice. I would dine here again.

This review is only for the sushi bar. If you like sushi rolls dressed with gimmicky sauces, then maybe Cho Cho San is OK. If you like to order nigiri sushi that is not drenched with "special" sauce and the fish has to be 100% fresh, then this place misses the mark completely. Is pre-sliced fish in the sushi case...

Cho Cho San has it all. Fun place to go and get a show at your table. If you are not into that, than enjoy the Sushi bar. Food is excellent
