Sorry folks this place does not rate very high with me. The food was OK at best but nowhere near where it needed to be for the cost. It's like a high-end Chinese takeout place that performs an act for you. If you want to see somebody flip some knives and spatulas while they throw alcohol on an open flame... More

I'm not impressed by the food at all! We've sat at the hibachi several times but chose a table this time. The food is so basic that I could do better and I have no background in cooking like this. I didn't even want a take home container. The server didn't smile once. Never again!!

This was my very first Hibachi experience and I could not have asked for better. The cook was as funny as he was skilled and the portions are enormous and extremely reasonably priced!

Excellent food and entertainment. How often do you have 12 year old wanting more broccoli. Recommend the shrimp and scallops

I went in with a group of 5 on Saturday evening. Our hibachi chef was terrible. Our food was under seasoned, steak over cooked, veggies still raw. The show was kept to a spinning egg and volcano onion stack. Mind you the table next to us was yelling "More Saki, More Sexy" and having one hell of a time. I... More

Food was very good, as was the service. Came late and we're accommodated nicely. The drinks were a bit weak, but we'll go back for the food.

I enjoyed the sashimi; my family's hibachi & sushi bento dinners were also tasty. The also have hibachi tables, but while we were seated immediately in the dining room, we were told there was an hour + wait for the hibachi tables. The bar is hopping! If you're looking for quiet, maybe ask to be seated away from it!

I've been to Kyoto for many birthday celebrations, sushi lunches and group dinners. I never choose the restaurant for myself, but I always seem to end up there a few times each year for one reason or another. I enjoy their food, but there are definitely better sushi/hibachi restaurants in Buffalo. Their specialty sushi rolls aren't super innovative. I tend... More
