This probably deserves something closer to a 3.5 grade but I couldn't stretch it past that to justify bumping it to a 4. Have to admit that I saw things a little differently to some of my dining companions, some of them loved the place. The staff were pleasant & friendly & the teppanyaki chef was entertaining, though not as... More

Nice place to visit. Fancy show from then chef. He made my daughter's dinner very special. Wrote her name in the hot plate. He went out of his way to make her feel super special. He also made special dinner for her vegan friends. Great time. Wonderful atmosphere.

Tsukasa is a very fun restaurant. They cook the food right in front of you, at your table. The food is nothing special, but is still good. It's a fun place to take people who have never been to see them react to the cooks cooking their food right at the table.

Good teppanyaki dinner with reasonable budget. Many tables dedicated for this special performance cooking tells it serves good food. The next day, we had sushi dinner, but not satisfactory. It was first time I was not happy with this restaurant sushi dinner after so many years of visit.

First time there and we will be returning for sure. The service was wonderful, the food, spectacular, the prices were about average for a Japanese hibachi style restaurant. We were a party of 6, all ordered different entrees and every single one was WONDERFUL. We have been going to a different hibachi style restaurant for many years and after our... More

Had a fantastic night here a couple of weeks back. They staff are so friendly and the chefs are a lot of fun - be prepared for an amazing show with your food before you eat it. Food tasted so good, highly recommend the fillet Mignon. Will hopefully be returning soon.

My family was always a fan of Tsukasa but don't think that I'll return there. My daughter just returned from overseas trip and was looking forward to sushi, so we decided to meet @ Tsukasa. Unfortunately, our lunch was completely spoiled! My daughter was drinking her water and didn't see some dead fly in her glass. I called the waiter,... More

I've eaten here several times when traveling for work. First, for vegetarians, let alone vegans, this restaurant is a nightmare. (And the hibachi is awful too unless you want greasy plate of vegetables that taste very odd.) Eat before you go. The meat eaters also thought it was very good. If I have to eat there again, I will definitely... More

Look at Google maps. Garmin was not very helpful. Nestled in the middle of a group of shops. Went for the sashimi. Came with optional miso soup or salad. Went for the salad. A small bowl of iceberg lettuce covered with a thin miso based sauce. Not very exciting. The lettuce was fresh but that’s not rocket science gastronomically speaking.... More
