We used to go to Rokbonki quite often with friends for birthday celebrations, but have not been there in quite a while. Now I see why. To us the experience has slipped quite a bit. We went there for New Years Eve. We had a 4:30 reservation, which was all we could get. It was a family dinner with our... More

We were there for a holiday get together. Food was very good. They have changed a few things that we were a little disappointed about. They used to serve you bean sprouts and now they serve noodles. They were fine but we preferred the sprouts. We remembered the scallops being a lot thicker. They are cutting them too thin in... More

Our family has a tradition of going to Hibachi around Christmas. This year was out turn to find a place. Reviews were good online so we gave it a try. Food was great, showmanship was fantastic. A little pricy, but you do this kind of thing for entertainment as much as for nourishment. Overall we would go back, but after... More

We have gone to this restaurant for special occasions for over 10 years now still holding up as a fun delicious place to go there has been some transition with the chef so last time we were there the chef wasn't quite as entertaining as in the past I think he may have been overwhelmed with too many tables but...

This has become our kids favorite place for "birthday dinners" so we have dined here often. The chef cooks on the hibachi right in front of you. Soup, salad, shrimp, steak or chicken, white or fried rice, etc. The chef may make the obligatory "onion volcano", chop up veggies and fire them at you so you can catch them in... More

This unassuming place sits in a strip mall but houses some of the best hibachi grill style food around. When trying similar places around the country we are always disappointed when they don't live up to this one. The cooking show is fresh and includes plenty of entertaining standbys as well. The hibachi scallops and filet combo is perhaps their... More

Quality of food is high and staff are very friendly. Wonderful spot for a party or just a night on the town. Prices are much cheaper than any other Japanese chop house and food quality is better in my opinion. A must visit if you like this type of food!!

Had a party of 6 at Rokbonki on Sunday, Nov. 3rd for my son's special birthday. We have always loved the food here and the table side cooking chiefs as they would perform culinary tricks with the food for the grand-kids . NOT this visit. Our chief was just awful! No personality and he told us he does not do... More
