Wait staff very nice and receptive. As others have said, don't let the outside keep you from trying this restaurant out!

I got the bento box with steak it was so good, others in our party got hibachi which was also good. The spider roll was the best definitely the service was fast and friendly.

This is a Japanese restaurant which prepares their food Hibachi style. They also have Sushi. The salads are great and the house dressing is out-of-this-world. The portions are very good, well prepared and have excellent flavor served with a ginger sauce. The prices are VERY REASONABLE. Can't wait to go there again.

Fresh cooked hibachi is delicious. Plate is filled with delicious veggies, chicken, shrimp, steak, or combination of your choice. Their salad dressing is awesome. We always select two salads and drop the soup. Well worth the trip. Not a fancy building but has become one of our favorites

No they don't do Hibachi in front of table , but it is open and near by the dining room like most grills. The food is delicious the ginger salad is the best I've had. The flavor is great... Love this place and hope it stays open long time!

I had avoided this place as my partner is not a steak eater. Thanks to a Trip Advisor contributor, I learned that this is more of a sushi place and less of a steakhouse. After our lunch today, I'm kicking myself we didn't try it sooner. I ordered a lunch special, the Hibachi NY Steak, she got the Benito Box... More
