Went here for sushi lunch with work colleague. Top quality sushi & sashimi for inland location. Price was very reasonable & although we ate sushi, many other diners were eating other foods from the menu. I didn't see an unhappy face in the place! Highly recommend this restaurant & look forward to visiting again next time I'm in the vicinity.

My family and I love this place. The chefs make your experience memorable and exciting. The food is awesome and plentiful. The service is great, they're attentive and efficient. It's pricy, but considering you get 2 meals out of what they give you it's worth it.

Went here with some friends and ordered the steak and shrimp. The food was very good, excellent!! The service was friendly and helpful. The restaurant looked clean and a lot of room. The meal was somewhat expensive (around $24), but we'll worth it. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Prices are VERY reasonable at lunch time, and the quality of the food is amazing! The chefs always put on an amazing show. Wish they would bottle and sell their salad dressing. Service has always been good. Why go to Lone Star or Longhorn for steak when you can get a better steak meal with more variety and at a... More

While the new restaurant looks very nice and the service was great, our food was average at best. I ordered a spicy tuna roll and it was bland with little to no flavor nor spice. The friend dining with me said the same about her salmon tempanyaki dinner. She ended up having to order a side of Yum Yum sauce... More

Food is excellent. This location has seen its better days which is probably why they are building a newer one. They have been rotating chefs a lot lately it seems. Food is always great though and Tuesday nights kids meals are a great deal. My kids favorite restaurant. Once they get new location it will be a 5 star.

The food is always amazing, atmosphere is always so fun. You can't go wrong with this place. It's definitely more fun to go to with a large group, but you can also sit away from the grills and get food as well. The chefs are always super nice and funny. I love this place.

This place is awesome!! Just finished our meal there. I had the hibachi chicken and my husband had chicken and fillet. It was so very good. Our chef was wonderful at his job - great personality, very entertaining and food was perfect!

We've eaten ate this establishment dozens of times, and have never had a poor experience. The food is always prepared as asked, and the banter from the cooks is entertaining. It does get a little chilly in winter months when the air of the grill and hood, but nothing to complain about. Top notch, HIGHLY recommended.

I have celebrated my sons past 3 birthdays here. Great food and wonderful service. You can sit and watch as they cook your food to order right around you. Also put on a little show for your while cooking your food. All the foos is out of this world. My son picks this place for his birth day all the... More
