I usually try to stop by when I am in Bowling Green. Awesome food, large quantities, great value and fantastic service! Its like having a fancy habachi dinner without the show- for half the price! Highly recommend this place!

Let me start by saying that we lived in Japan for several years and so are particular about our Japanese food. This disappointed on many levels. Our server was unfriendly and almost unwilling to allow us to share items. We told her we would start...More
