“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

As a local, this is one of my favorite haunts. Go for the food, but don't expect much of a show...this is all about the food. If you get shrimp, upgrade to the jumbo...worth the price. You can't beat the jumbo shrimp and filet mignon combo. I enjoy the spicy tuna rolls from the sushi bar as well. I also recommend lunch over dinner, especially if cost is an issue.

“Basic dinner show...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Waitress was unattentive. Didn't ask what dressing we wanted on our salad. If you have been to a Kanki or Kaze. You've already seen the basic dinner show. Woo hoo an onion volcano. No new tricks. Disappointing. Food was average. I chose the dinner for two, with the steak, shrimp, and chicken. One-fourth of the steak was fat. I wouldnt recommend to friend.

“Tasty and entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We were entertained with onion towers, flipping shrimp tails, and an after dinner show.. The food was delicious and plentiful. I always get the chicken and I'm never disappointed. The ginger dressing on the salad was a little too plentiful but the soup and meal were perfect. Plenty of food, so much so that I needed a to go box. We were there late on a Sunday night so there was plenty of seating. We were a large party of 9, but only 7 of us ate and we had a split bill. They still put a mandatory gratuity of $13 on our portion of the bill. Not sure what our friends got stuck with.

“Best sushi anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We only go here for the sushi and it is wonderful, better than sushi I had in Japan or large cities in the USA. When you gotta have sushi, this is the place to go, but there is not a lot of seating.
