Chef Antonio prepared a great meal, was very personable & made the "show" fun for the kids. He made sure to cook the food to our liking. We'll definitely go back & hopefully see Chef Antonio again!

Wonderful place for a birthday celebration for youngsters -- our chef, Antonio, was so engaged and wanted to impress our little guy - he made the biggest volcano ever! Very impressive. We will be back! Thank you, Chef, for a memorable 10th birthday celebration!

The food at this restaurant was some of the best food we had whilst travelling America! Cooked in front of us by an experienced chef who also made it fun by doing tricks with the rice and fire! Would love to come back one day!

We dined at this restaurant and had both teppanyaki and sushi. The sushi was actually very tasty. The teppanyki Chef Antonio was VERY friendly and put on a great "show". The service was great.

The food was very good. Because we sat in the dining room and not in the sushi room our service was very poor. Maybe the waitress was new. The bar at this hotel was very poor. They are remodeling so that may change. Good sushi

Forget to call me - 30mins later get next table, ordered Sashima starter which was great and prompt. Teppan - overcooked, dry and bland - very average.... More

We have been to countless restaurants and were skeptical about going to a Teppanyaki grill in Flagstaff, but we were pleasantly surprised. Chef Antonio's showmanship was wonderful. He prepared a wonderful meal and we look forward to going back again.
