“Very good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

This place looks like a "hole in the wall", but please try it! We went here after it was recommended by our hotel front desk. The sushi/sashimi pieces were excellent. Very generous portions and great prices. Service is very friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, the soup that accompanied our dinners was tasteless. Our "salads" consisted of iceberg lettuce pieces and milky, tasteless dressing. We'll try again but we'll stick with sashimi and rolls.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had a luncheon there with 20 people. Food was excellent as was the entire staff. We had children, adults and one senior. Everyone left with a smile on their face. The hibachi cook was very entertaining and the food was wonderful. We are all looking forward to our next visit. Love this place!!

“Dietary Special Needs - Feel Comfortable Here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I have eaten here several times. Every time they catered to my Celiac disease with grace and pleasure. At no point did I feel like a burden for requiring my meals to be gluten/wheat free, they even suggested a gluten free desert that wasn't on the menu, because my party was having desert and nothing on the menu was gluten free.

The restaurant is clean, the decor is current and the staff is very nice AND knowledgeable about allergens and cross contamination!

They even cooked my food in the back instead of on the hibachi grill to avoid contamination of the soy from the other orders.

I never have had an issue eating here, and I feel very confident in my next visit

“Fun, good food and friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Had dinner at their Hazleton, Pa. location with our normal group of six couples (all in their fifties and sixties). Ordinarily we get together on an monthly basis alternating between our homes. However this past month (March 2013) we agreed to meet at this restaurant. We had a ball. The hibachi cook was great and the food served was very satisfying. The young girls at the opposite table (probably a bridal group) were hysterical and likely amazed that a group of "old people" could get so crazy, especially when "SAKE, SAKE" was being squirted directly into our wide open mouths. Will likely do the same with our group at the other location some time in the furture. Only downside to this experience was that we felt rushed to leave due to people waiting in line.
