This is now my favorite place to go when I'm in the mood for Hibachi steak. Of all the Hibachi steakhouses I've been to, the portions here are the largest. It's a great place to take friends and family and lots of fun for all watching the masters cook.

Good value for dollar. The Hibachi chef was enthusiastic and talented. We enjoyed the experience and atmosphere.

Have been here several times, and always enjoy it. Great food, expertly prepared--and a lot of fun besides!

hibachi presentation was nice but in the end we were paying for food which i believe was just ok, something you can make at home quite easily. non-hibachi food also just average. grossly overpriced menu. 2x being ther for me was enough!

This place has really gone down hill. The chefs speak little or no English, the food is average at best, the wait staff is complacent. This used to be a fun place for dinner and a show, now it is just overpriced for average food.

Beautiful restaurant , great location . Food and service was average , A little pricey. My family love hibachi, and we know most of these places in mommouth county, and you can have much better food (hibachi ) and service not far Sawa

I never complain, but MY experience is definitely something to write about. I came here with my girlfriend on a Sunday night, and our night was ruined almost the second we walked through the door. The hostess rolled her eyes and sighed as soon as we walked in. She quickly reminded us how the restaurants kitchen closes in 30 minutes... More

Rice not moist enough, price not that good, we went at lunch time and there was no one there, maybe that says something

This is my favorite location ( they have another one in Long Branch) and my favorite hibachi anywhere. I love the little fish pond, the aquarium and the general atmosphere. I have been here for many dinners and private parties.
