This is one of our main birthday dinner destinations. It is expensive ($21-$35 for a hibachi dinner (includes delicious soup and tasty side salad). With tip, it usually costs us about $40-$50/per person. The showmanship of the hibachi cook used to be much more enthusiastic and impressive. It felt like our cook was just going through the motions. The food... More

This is my favorite restaurant! My boyfriend and I have been coming here for about 8 years. They consistently deliver high quality food and service. In all that time, we have always had a great experience here! We ordered the tatsuta age appetizer and both got the hibachi filet mignon dinner. Somehow it was even tastier than last time! I...

Honestly I liked it better in the 70's when it was a steakhouse. The Big Top was across the street where McD's is. But these guys where the first place like it in the area and when we tired of the PepperMill or Three Bears for birthdays this was our go to place. Sushi back in the day was rare... More

My grandkids love this place and we do too! From sushi to open grill Japanese steak,shrimp and chicken with the flames shooting up. It makes for a fun evening and the place is always packed and busy so it must be good and priced right. It has been there for a long time.

Whilst visiting family in the States, they always treat me/us to this establishment for the Hibachi. From start to finish, I love it here. The service is very friendly and the food is amazing! Its so fun for people of all ages and I would highly recommend. I'll continue to visit this place each time I visit family.

Express Lunch is the best deal in town. For $10.00 you can have hibachi chicken, shrimp or steak and a wonderful miso soup, veggies and fried rice. Shrimp was wonderful and lunch was substantial.
