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.

Always fresh and fabulous sushi. Great service and you can always get a seat at the sushi bar. The ceviche is outstanding as are the oysters. We love the pinkie roll. Absolutely recommend this as best place for sushi in Fairfield County.

Very good Japanese restaurant. However, it's very crowded and very overpriced. They keep making it more crowded by squeezing in more tables.

Typical hibachi grill restaurant with the standard entertainment and dishes. The chefs are entertaining and cook a tasty meal in front of you. Great place to take a family out for dinner.

Have not been to this establishment in over a year. Thought this visit was very average. Sushi was good, Love boat was tthe way to go. However, the hibachi really disappointed me. What happened? Service was good but could not get over the fact that the meal was on the bland side.
