The cooks have plenty of experience and showmanship. The food is always really good. I'd recommend the filet and chicken.

The building appears to be really run down, but once you get in there to eat it is amazing! The food as absolutely the best. Like you could eat it everyday. We usually go on Sundays after church, and they get really busy. But it is well worth the wait.

My husband & I visited Inoko's when we were in school at UGA 20 years ago & loved the place. We returned this weekend with both of our daughters and nothing has changed, and I mean nothing! The place needs an update and a thorough cleaning. There was a strange smell that meets you at the door. The hibachi hoods... More

Made reservations for 7 people- we were Seated on time but took 30 minutes to START cooking??? Place was not busy- good food (enough sodium for 3 days...). Do not go if you have plans afterward.. Pushy about rushing you out - we were asked if we wanted to go boxes 10 minutes after food was plated...

Besides having to wait 25 minutes to be seated in a mostly empty restaurant, service was very good here. Our waitress was very attentive and our chef was entertaining and interacted well with the kids, who had a great time. The food was well cooked, but bland and boring (frozen veggies) and the hot sauce for the spicy teryaki was... More

One of my favorite places to eat when visiting Athens. The building itself is old and dim-lit, but the food is worth it. It's a typical hibachi experience, that is dinner with a show, but that doesn't mean it's bland. The food is great, kinda pricey but worth it.

Food is very good and they give you plenty. I enjoy the filet mignon, fried rice and yellow sauce, It is a hit or miss on the chef but overall It was great.
