Obviously most people would prefer hibachi if it was at the restaurant. Wife and I decided (after many days of work and mismatched schedules) we’d try this place via grub hub. They didn’t disappoint. Food was perfect, almost like sitting at the restaurant. Good portions,...More

Tried on going on several occasions. Always a problem. Purchased a Groupon - which is to court new business. Expired and still wouldn’t honor the value paid. Huge hassle and so rude! Located on So. Hackensack in a strip mall.

Went to restaurant using a Groupon. We were the only patrons. We were pleasantly surprised at the delicious food. Had planned to take half home for dinner, but couldn't stop eating the great filet mignon and fried rice.

Everytime we crave for a Bento box this is the place to go. The Hibachi courses is also good. Service is fast, delicious and prices are reasonable. The servers are courteous, friendly and attentive. Location is good. The restaurant is clean and atmosphere is relaxing.

You have a good chance to ruin your planned event or dining experience if you plan on going to Mei Hibachi Steak House, like we did on Valentine's Day. A few parties were already there upon our arrival, including the five of us, with reservations made. First...More

Ate here with friends on Valentine's Day. They have an extensive menu but we chose to do Hibachi and we were not disapointed. Mei was very warm welcoming and even allowed us to stay to finish our wine long after we had finished our food....More
