“Great family place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We have gone to Plum Garden for years and it is our favorite Hibachi restaurant in Rochester. Definitely call for a reservation as they are consistently busy.

“Borderline Mainstream Sushi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The sushi is only marginal here. There are at least 3 places where it is fresher and tastier. the atmosphere is noisy, and service only fair. Had to wait in line for quite a while even with reservation.

Kids do like the hibachi grill at least the first time.

Not going back.

“Great food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great food, a little dirty in lobby, but food preparation was fun to watch. Very entertaining. Used a coupon and then it was affordable. Would be a fun date night!

“***AVOID***Found a band-aide in our food***AVOID***”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Went out to have a relaxing dinner with my wife at the Plum Garden Hibachi Restaurant. Discovered a used bandaid in the rice during the dinner, which unfortunately had been cooked on the habachi with the stir fry and rest of the dinner. When brought to the attention of the restaurant, they took away the rice promising to bring fresh rice. We had already been eating our meal and lost our appetite. Asking for the manager or owner, they said he was out of town til next week. We could not eat anything else, so they cleared the table and billed us in full. When I wanted to meet the manager they said they would give us 20% off the meal. They demanded payment until I called the police for a health dept report. Then they said we only had to pay half price because we ate some of the food before we discovered the bandage. We paid half price just to get out of there, following up with the health dept. VERY GROSS AND DISGUSTING.

“Bad Sushi”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I was craving something healthy and decided to order Sushi to-go. The place seemed like a nice and popular local spot based on the attendance there but, I was dissapointed with the size, smell and taste of my spicey tuna and yellowtail sushi rolls.

I would possibly give them another chance and try their Habachi Steak but I;d pass on the sushi.
