We love it here! Plenty of food, even for little sumos. Our chef Allan, was the best we've had! He had us in stitches, especially when he picked on the kids! Very entertaining and terrific food!

Enjoyed a family dinner at this location yesterday evening. The place was very clean and we were seated promptly. The service was good and the chef entertaining. As for the food, it was well prepared and quite fresh taking. The cuts of steak and chicken looked good. A typical dinner comes with noodles, fried rice, vegetables, entrée, soup, salad and... More

I have been here once and i can honestly say the food was amazing and I haven't had anything like it before. The chicken fried rice and steak fried rice was amazing. I will deff come back to this place again.

Thought it was very good food. Kind of frustrated this only my 2nd time there and the rest of my parties 1st time here, and we had to wait for the hostess ladies to finish swapping back and forth a personal phone call before seating us. Seemed we were of secondary importance but the cook was friendly and the food... More

This resturarant used to be one of our favorites. The food and quality of service has plummeted constantly. We always say "we'll give it one more time" and are always disappointed.

Ate in the sushi bar section, but didn't have sushi. I had vegetable tempura, miso soup, and a salad. The miso was pretty bland. The salad with garlic dressing was fine, fresh enough. I'd have preferred seaweed salad (which was available; I should've ordered it.) The vegetable tempura was good, with a nice variety of vegetables. The warm sake was... More

Food is delectable. The Hibachi shrimp is excellent and you get vegetables/noodles/ salad/soup/fried rice. So much food!!!! Grilled by chef right at your table along with some entertainment. You even get ice cream or sherbet for desert!!! Reasonably priced and atmosphere is so warm. I love this place!!! Mixed drinks are great as well. You cannot beat it.

We love it! I order the extra cut of filet and sometimes add chicken, then I mix all the ingredients together(except for the fried rice) and I have a meal for 3 days! Drinks are great and strong) and the fried tofu app is to die for! Although not on menu but I ask for it everyone! Big waits to... More

Finally, I got through and made the reservation for 4pm. They gave me the whole rundown of rules (we will hold your reservation for 15 minutes... More
