“Worst Service & Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I agree with the other reviewer as to how this place has ever ranked so high. Went this past Saturday and the place is so cold that most people had their coats on eating a dinner that cost about $35 per person. Wait staff more or less could not get the food down fast enough. Obviously, to get you out so they could seat more and more people. The food was absolutely terrible. Wontons so overcooked (burnt) and the salad was a joke, The food was totally uninspiring. Also, they threw broccoli at you to see if you could catch it in your mouth. The only thing you got was an oil covered shirt. I would not recommend or ever go back.

“Nice experiment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I came here with my girlfriend for lunch since she's never been to one of these restaurants before. Our chef was funny and friendly. The manager that day was exceptionally cheerful and the food was just as great.

“Decent teppanyaki”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Our family of 4 went there for lunch last week. The service was courteous but didn't appear genuine.

We order two teppanyaki lunches (steak and salmon, chicken) and an extra order of tempura. The tempura was a bit too greasy. For teppanyaki, they served very good portions and enough for our entire family to share (both our kids are under 5). They put on the usual show one would see at every teppanyaki place. Both the chicken and salmon were done very well. The 4oz steak, however, was too well done even though the chef had confirmed that my medium-rare order. We paid a bit extra for the fried rice instead of steamed rice and was worth it.

Over all, it was a pleasant experience but it did not distinguish itself.

As an aside, the bathroom was very clean and children-friendly.

“Fun Place for a Group Event”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

15 of us enjoyed lunch around the cooking table and were thoroughly entertained by the skilled chefs.

The salmon teriyaki and grilled vegetables were good but not great.
