TERRIBLE waitress......Did not come to ask if our food was OK. She was not friendly at all. We said thank you when served she did not reply Shrimp Tempura was delicious, as well as the sweet potato roll, the salad is good and so is the soup Well priced lunch items

This is the best restaurant for sweet potato tempura rolls. There is a nice crunch when you bite into the roll. This time I tried a appetizer-beef scallion roll.

One of my favorite types of cuisine and Iron Chef does it splendidly. A great feature is that you are able to order the same great hibachi meals at individual tables if you are by yourself or are just not in the mood for the communal hibachi table cooking.

My sister and I were staying locally to see a concert at the Oakdale Theater. This restaurant came up on Yelp very close to us. The prices looked good and we didn't want Italian which seemed to be every where. Wasn't sure because they didn't get the best reviews. However, we were both pleasantly surprised. Everything was great. Food tasted... More

Our family has been going to Iron Chef for years. The sushi is fresh, delicious and they have great rolls. We love both sushi and sashimi - and the food never disappoints. They do have hibachi, which we did once... we're just not that much into it. We are pretty much sushi snobs... and Iron Chef gets thumbs up all... More

This restaurant is the best Japanese around. We go out for Japanese on a regular basis and this is the best hibachi in the area.

I love Sushi/Sashmi. This restaurant is just okay. There are many other Japanese restaurants in the area that offer better food.

The hibachi is excellent. Great entertainment and plenty of food. The negative is if you order sushi as an appetizer it comes the same time as the hibachi starts which defeats the purpose for an app

Four of us ate here on a Friday evening. We ordered a bottle of wine, which in our minds was from the "house" selection and cost $16. Somehow the waitress decided it was from the rest of the menu and brought us a bottle, showed us the label, poured it for tasting and left it in an ice bucket. When... More

Went with a friend for lunch. Service was quick, however the place was rather empty. There are a lot of menu options and all very well priced. I enjoyed that the maki had 8 pieces instead of 6. They also gave us hot tea with our meal for free and pineapple cubes at the end of out meal. Will definitely... More
