“I miss the Hibachi.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food good, portions a little small, but most of all I miss the Hibachi and the "juggling" and show the Japanese put on in the bigger restaurants. The price is right for the food we got, but the building lacks the feel and flow of Japanese cuisine.

Restrooms were not clean for our visit but in fairness to the restaurant, it was busy and they did seem short-staffed.

The rice was tasteless; chicken was overdone; steak was perfect and veggies were fine. Overall: average.

“The American servers are racist”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

The American employees are rude and verbally abusive to the Japanese workers in front of customers, the food was great but their behavior made my family and me so uncomfortable that we haven't been back. I don't support this restaurant and warn everyone who wants to go to stay away.

“Great option for new cuisine in Somerset.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

Having gone to Japan & having eaten @ many traditional Japanese restaurants all over the country, this restaurant doesn't rate very high. BUT for small town Japanese fare it is very good & reasonably priced
