We enjoyed a good dinner and reasonably entertaining cooking, and would be pleased to return again in the future.
It was interesting to see how the cook we had varied his presentation depending on the group he was cooking for. Prior to doing our table, he did a table full of a group of loud noisy celebrating young couples, and there was much more showy pizzazz, many more eruptions of flames, and even some celebratory drink sharing; the group at our table was much quieter and so the performance was quieter and more subdued too, although in truth I think we'd have preferred a showier performance too.
Food was good, quantities were enormous. Supplementary service by the waitresses was attentive.
The interior of the restaurant was - well, 'interesting' is the best term, perhaps. Bright lights rimmed the tables and they were slowly changing color through a sequence of colors and back again, all the time we were there.
Access was difficult. When coming off I-405, don't go immediately right on 112th. Better to drive west and turn right at the next corner, then go around and around so as to travel south on 112th. You can't turn left when traveling north on 112th, which is the problem.
Anyway, good food, good service, and a nice change from traditional eating environments. As best I'm aware, it is the only teppanyaki style restaurant on the Eastside, so if that's the food you want, this is the place to go.
