We’ve been to this restaurant a few times and the service is always good. It is a traditional Hibachi style Japanese restaurant with traditional menu selections. The chefs are very good and perform while making dinner. The portion sizes are reasonable for the price. They...More

Fairly good food and chef was funny and had a good act. The building and furnishings are rather old and dated.

Didn't have sushi. Sat at hibachi grill. Chef was good. Food was cooked as I asked and I thought it was good. The waitress was okay, but that area could use some improvement. I would eat here again, but I felt it was just average.

Traveling for business and went by myself just after opening so I did not get to sample their hibachi skills, which they do have more tables for, so perhaps that's the intended strong suit. Sushi was not it and I would not recommend this place...More

The restaurant is next door to the motel so we decided to go there after a 600 mile day. Not sure that I was ready for the "show" but had forgotten that it is part of the dining experience. The food was excellent and plenty...More
