“Another family favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

The food here is so fresh and completely satisfying. It's wonderful to find a different type of restaurant that my whole family loves.

“Wonderful sushi rolls, but, oh, the noise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Based strictly on the food, this place is tops for sushi and rolls. Our hamachi was tender and generous in size. The two rolls we ordered were superb and very large. We did not leave hungry. The downside? The noise. The format is part sushi restaurant, part Japanese steakhouse, and part sports bar (apparently). This is not the place for a quiet dinner if the bar crowd is at all active.

“Fun Japanese Steak house...like Benihana's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Great looking place inside and the staff were helpful and friendly. The place was packed. They cook on the giant Hibachi (sort of like a diner's giant flat grill that they do eggs etc on). And the cook at the table sort of does a show with his knives and forks as he cooks. Kind of corny and cheesy. But... it's something to look at. Food was good. Not outstanding in any way, but it was good. And the price was decent. $26 for two meat/fish items with vegetables and rice or noodles. It was a lot of food. A good place to take a bunch of friends since 8 people sit around the hibachi (some will be strangers to you unless you're a party of 8). Would I go back? Probably not. Was I sorry I went? No...it was a decent time.

“Happy Hibachi and Sushi Sensations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very entertaining and delicious Hibachi dinner/show. If you like Sake, you should bring a designated driver, because the chef shoots sake liberally throughout the course of the dinner, to anyone who opens their mouth toward him. I highly recommend getting the full combination steak and lobster - surf and turf at it's best.
Their special rolls are delicious - especially the tempura selections, and their sushi is fresh, tasty and has large pieces of fish.
Service at the bar is fast and friendly; and I have often stopped in on a weeknight and been in and out in 20 minutes.
