Food is a little different but always very good! Have eaten lunch and dinner at this place and have not been disappointed.

Will never be back. Terrible service. Asked my child to dump their drink even though was given the cup for his meal and wasn’t told it was for water. We had ordered and I realized he didn’t have a cup. I asked for a cup...for him and was given a small cup and again no one said you can only get water. Who treats a child this way and expects to continue to have you support their business? Needless to say we left and will never be back. I’ll go somewhere that actually wants my business.More

By far one of the best places to eat in Lakeland. Best bang for your buck. And they are extremely punctual with customer service.

We thought we would be getting more of a "fast food" experience at this hibachi and sushi restaurant in a strip plaza next several other eateries and a grocery store. We ordered 3 different sushi rolls, plus 2 hibachi steak and chicken entrees. The food...was served relatively quickly, though not "fast food" fast - and it was all delicious! Portions were very generous and we couldn't have expected more from a restaurant. It's definitely a place we will visit again.More

This is definitely not the best hibachi I have ever had but for the price and convenience it is a great value especially for lunch to be able to get that much food for under $10 with a drink

The selection is great the food is great the service is great. Everytime we or I come into the Restaurant we are greeted with a friendly welcome. The food is second to none. The sushi is great and the noodles I can not get enough...of.More

Dumpster food some with no taste and some with lots of spices. Wondering if the tasty items were fresh? Does only the freshest stuff have no taste?

I had lunch at this place today. t did not expect much and I was not disappointed. I ordered clear soup which tasted like boiled water and mushrooms. No taste what so ever. I then had the Shrimp Hibachi Lunch. They gave you enough, but...it did not have the taste of a Sakura Hibachi in Winter Haven, but the price was a lot cheaper too. You get what you pay for. It was eatable and it tasted mostly good for a storefront operation. If I was hungry and it was the only place around, I would go back. It is nothing to go out of the way for, however.More

Food here is good, their servings are big. Their employees are very nice, but they always make mistakes on names (especially if you call in your order). The lunch special will give you the most bang for your buck. The Yum sauce is good. So...good that they started charging for it! (used to be free!). The veggie roll is the best item on the menu!More

We have come here since this location opened. The staff and food are absolutely amazing! Everything is fresh and made to order, the sauces are homemade and prices cannot be beat! We always order the chicken or steak Hibachi entree which comes with rice and...veggies (pictured) a side salad with ginger sauce( not pictured) and two sides of the “yum sauce”. Soooo yummmmy!!! Highly recommend!!!!More

You can’t beat the $6.99 Lunch special with a drink! Great flavor and clean. Plus, the deep fried cheesecake is heaven sent!

We love This place ! The entire restaurant is so clean, every order is cooked to order fresh ! If you like Shui this is your place, it's excellent ! Here is the greatest tip they have a lunch either chicken, or beef with veggies...and rice 6.99 It's amazing and defiantly 2 servings. Go try it, you will be glad you did. I know for a fact this place is taking a lot of the other 2 Asian restaurants in the area, no comparison !More

I'm very happy I had the chance to try this restaurant. It's obvious that they are trying to provide exceptional quality food, large portions, and fair pricing all at the same time. I had a sushi roll, and an entree during this first visit. I...appreciated the fact that they are able to provide hot meals made fresh, and a sushi bar that is in one corner of the restaurant that can also make rolls upon request. I loved the large cuts of zucchini and other vegetables that were being cut as I ordered my meal. The fact that it is set-up more like a fast food restaurant than a fine dining experience is made less relevant by the obvious quality of the food. I not only recommend this restaurant, but I intend to go back today.... because it is just damn good!More
