Thsi place was recommended to us and unfortunately it did not live up to it's billing. To be fair, my wife and I had their nabeyaki udon, and we have certainly had better. This is a hibachi and sushi restaurant so we can't judge those dishes. The service was good and the place was ful of people so it is... More

I had a good time and the food was made on point!!! Service was good, only that our server didn't make rounds or refills for a while and most everyone in the table need drinks. I will come back for sure!!

I use to like the hibachi here, but today it was not great. The veggies were burnt and not a lot of great flavor. I haven't eaten the chinese food here in a while, since I use to like their chinese delivery compared to other chinese delivery in the area. I'll try their hibachi again in the future. Maybe it...

My wife and I have been coming here once a week for the past year. Very clean, friendly and good food. Glasses of wine are always filled to the top. {how unusual}

If you prefer an alternative to the usual chain restaurants and enjoy Asian food, this is the place for you. Great service, and dishes prepared and presented in the most professional manner. And the locals seem to agree--it was packed on Sunday night.Prices are reasonable. Nothing fancy here-- just great dining and great value.

I have heard some friends saying that there is a sushi and hibachi restaurant in pooler and decided to try out. It was one of the worse experience I ever had eating out. I love Uni and had missed it since we moved to Savannah, I saw on one of the poster menu in the restaurant the picture of Uni... More

The sushi rolls were very creative. They were not only tasty, but they were works of art. Nice people and good food, what could be better. For me, the rolls were too big. I would have preferred more variety with smaller rolls.

Do not order takeout from here! We ordered a small takeout order this past weekend via their online ordering service. We placed our order at 6:11pm. By 7:15 we still hadn't received it so we called to make sure it was on it's way. The lady assured us that the driver had left and would be there any moment. At... More
