“Not the best sushi around...nice waitstaff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Just visited for a late lunch while touring Savannah. Disappointed in the food, although my family had a couple of good rolls. The salad dressing was the best part of my meal. The rolls were a bit dry and the fried rice I ordered as a side was terrible.
The atmosphere was pleasant and everyone that helped us was genuinely nice and accommodating.

“Okay, just okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We ate at the downtown Savannah location over the NewYears holiday. Had the shrimp that we're good but the rest of our meal was less than expected. The soup was not hot and the salad watery.
The shrimp combo was expensive considering there was more plate showing than food for the price.

“Friendly people and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It seems there is no lack of Japanese tepan yakki grills around Savannah these days. Something about covering up a well prepared dish of food with "Shrimp Sauce" is quickly becoming as regular in Savannah as tourists asking "please pass the fried chicken" at Ms. Wilke's. With all the competition around, my choice on the Southside of Savannah is Heiwa's, hidden just north of Oglethorpe Mall in a strip center on Abercorn. The teppan yakki is very good, with my favorite being the terriaki salmon. However, don't be fooled into just ordering off the grill. The sushi and sashimi here is also a solid choice, which is my usual meal. The variety is average, but the quality is above average. A lot of people will not take chances with their sushi. So when you find a good one, stick with it. Try Heiwa's for lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed.
