Been here a couple times, and it never disappoints... If you're hungry, order the Ultimate. Comes with everything (but it's expensive). Great for families with kids. Super entertaining.

I love this place. I love the low light and atmosphere, the laziness of the lounge mixed with the bright lights of the fish tanks and tables once you're in the restaurant proper. I love the attentiveness of the wait staff, the quickness with which...More

The performance was a little lacking - no flair. No fried rice - disappointing. No tofu with the Miso soup, no starter salad. Just non of the flair of most of the other Teppanyaki places I have visited. The food was ok, but I was...More

It is good food but not sure if it is worth the price tag. It is far from being authentic Japanese Teppanyaki experience. The serving is North American style. Vegetable are cut generously in size. There is no fried garlic to be served with the...More
