This is our kids favorite place to go for their celebrations, even though they know every element of the "cooking show". Due to price, it isn't a Tuesday night dinner place.

The flavors of everything that we ate was excellent! The service was great! The chef was personable and catered to the children at the table. That was good since they were young and needed to feel good about their experience. The prices also were perfect!

My niece picked out the restaurant based on reviews. Wow what a selection. I loved the food. I really liked the king crab nigiri for a starter. The hibachi grill was very good. The scallops were amazing. The kyoto punch was very good. The service was excellent. Would highly recommend the restaurant and plan on returning again soon.

Japanese hibachi with separate dining also. Food was good, and lots of it. Same type of showmanship as other hibachi restaurants. Price was average for this type.

Food is delicious, but it is the entertainment that makes this restaurant a great place to go. A bit pricey, but for seven dollars you can split any entree and you get a ton of food.

Good value- just wish the food was a bit better. Very salty miso soup, dry pork cutlette, very slow service for lunch.
