“You will get a show.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was the most interesting Japanese Resturant that I've been to ever. The chef is hiliarous, if you cant take a joke, or like to have fun then don't go. They have pretty good prices and the the food is Great.

“Great dinner experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic food, service, experience. Go for the early bird special and eat for half price. There is so much food you will have enough for lunch the next day. They really catered to my kids and put on a great show. The entire dinner is cooked in front of you. We will definitely be going back.

“Tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I am giving this restaurant a 4 because our server was outstanding. She anticipated our needs/wants. We went with our 8 year old granddaughter (gd) after 8pm and our server (Katrina) was not only friendly BUT she was thoughtful to the point she brought a smal bowl of ice to cool down gd's soup!...without grandparent's (gp's) asking!! She also brought gd a small bowl of cherries!! with her shirley temple!! Okay where else can you go and be gp's that are UPPED by a bowl of ice, a bowl of cherries and a very thoughtful server!! For this we will go back next year vaca. Thank you Katrina.
The food is typical hibachi style and tasty. Our chef was okay but then our 'table' was not very enthusiastic w/exception of our gd who was very interactive w/server, chef and guests. Please let me know, if you visit and enjoy your experience. -Nana

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We splurged while on vacation and thought we'd give this place a try. The food was excellent, the chef was wonderful and entertaining absolutely no disappointment there. However our waiter was slow and un attentive and for the menu price that was disappointing. While the food was good the pricing was too high in my opinion even in comparison with other Japanese steakhouses. The shrimp was fresh and the best I've had. Highly recommend that over the steak. We had small children in our party and $11-$12.50 for a kid's meal that does not include a drink was excessive. Again good food. Value not so much for the prices charged unless you go before 5 pm which I highly recommend.
