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.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Always excellent service and the freshest sushi. The rolls are flavorful and sashimi is fresh and tasty. For non-sushi fans you can order the hibachi. Our favorite rolls are the Machu Pichu and Fire Mountain. The staff is knowledgeable and always willing to add a little extra spice or ingredient. You won't be... More

We love their sushi! Best in town! We tried the hibachi side with the kids for the first time which was a lot of fun. Our waitress and cook were wonderful and the food was great. My only complaint was that I felt very rushed. I understand that it was a busy night and I'm sure they were anxious to... More

I went here with some girlfriends for a holiday girls' night out. While not the best place to chat because it is loud when they are busy, we had a blast with our hibachi chef. He did a lot of tricks (almost to the point he was cocky) - Flipping bowls and knives. Tossing food at people and cool fire... More
