Place is always packed. Reason is people like the show and I would say food is reasonable. Nothing exceptional good for kids birthdays and when you are hungry. This is not a true Japanese experience.

Food is average here but the atmosphere will be good for families or group celebrating special occasions with the fun and showy teppanyaki cooking.

The service was good and food was nothing to rave about. It is a good option after bowling in the bowl mor complex.

Good food, good show though not as flashy as earlier years. Pricey, but add in the entertainment factor and the cordial seating and worth it.

Went here with my family and while it was good, it wasn't great. Prices are a little high I thought and the show was entertaining but I think you could have a better meal for a lot less elsewhere.

kids tradition is they go here on there birthdays (every year). Really good food, great atmosphere, just a really good family restaurant. probably the best family restaurant. Catch is way to much food, I could eat less but it is so good.

Been a long time since I visited this Teppan showplace that rose to fame in the 70's. And not much has changed. You sit table side at the hot grill, chef doing a juggling act with the tools and the obligatory flipping of shrimp tails into his hat and front pocket are still well performed.
