Rude wait staff. Subpar food. Everything about this place is wrong. Never again. Go somewhere else.

Very ordinary food, kids enjoyed the show, they seem to have a bit of a roach problem that they are trying to take care of. People working there were very friendly.

I had the opportunity to visit Banzai last week with a small group from my church. In all honesty, I've never noticed this place before, and I frequently visit the Starbucks across the street from it. So, is Banzai a hidden treasure or a restaurant...that should stay hidden? (Dramatic effect) For a Saturday night, the place wasn't packed but it wasn't light on customers either. Needless to say, my group of six didn't have to wait before being seated or atended to. The staff was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The hibachi server was interactive with the group. The food was okay, and average priced in comparison with other hibachi restaurants. Just an FYI, they do add the tip into your bill for large groups (Not a big deal, unless you feel they don't deserve it or you want to give more). Where they lose stars for me is (1) the parking lot is dark. Maybe it was just that night, or some people may not think it's a big deal, but it is for me. There needs to be more lighting, especially around on the side of the building. (2) the decor and atmosphere is terrible. The inside wall is literally a giant American Flag wrapped around the walls. Not sure if there is underlining meaning to this choice in decor. In my opinion, it does not compliment the type of restaurant it is, and pulls away from it. Maybe I'm different, but I like nice decor and a great atmosphere in a restaurant. Overall, would I recommend? If you're like me and decor is a determining factor for you, then absolutely not. If you're just looking for food with a hibachi experience, give it a try. Would I go back? It wouldn't be my first choice, but if someone was dead set on visiting and wanted me to go with them, I wouldn't write it off.More

This is a wonderfully over-the-top hibachi place with good quality food (the fried rice was surprisingly good) along with the marvelously high-energy antics of the very dexterous chef. Décor is stars and stripes and neon.

I dine out frequently and decided to try the restaurant because of a Groupon promotion. I ordered the California roll which tasted sticky, and the spicy roll and fish combo rolls were not good at all. The food tasted is if were prepraed early in...the morning and refrigerated for the day. I cannot speak for the Hibachi dinner but it appears that it was entertaining for children and families who want to enjoy watching a cook prepare food in front of you. In addition service was slow and i had ask the server to clear the dishes from the table twice.More

We had a $40 groupon for $22. Very good deal. Had the sushi sashimi combo for $35...huge pieces of fish...super fresh. A little noisy on the hibachi side. Fast and friendly service.

The restaurant is great for families. The service and food are wonderful. Located on a strip mall with plenty of parking space. The showmanship by the chefs as they prepare the food right in front of the guests is amazing. I would recommend it especially...for groups or family.More

Stopped in for dinner last week and had a lovely dinner. Staff was pleasant and attentive. I had the shrimp and was pleasantly surprised how many shrimp comes with the dinner....noodles were extra but very good......both my husband and son had steak - one med....rare, one med well and both were prepared perfectly.....The chef did the usual entertaining but was not over powering which we liked. Will definitely return soon.More

On 2/10.2018, went to dinner with my girlfriend. Large restaurant with open seating surrounding large heated cooking surface. The waitress served a broth with large chunks of mushrooms and then a small salad with dressing. Be prepared for the sudden searing heat, when the chef...sprays oil onto the cooking surface - almost feels like you're getting a quick sun burn! Then the chef begins cooking - he stir fried white rice with 3 scrambled eggs, then added lots of soy sauce before portioning out to everyone. Then he cooked the fish & shrimp, which I thought was odd since they tend to cook quickly. Then he added chicken & steak. Once the shrimp was done, he served the 2 pieces as standard appetizers and to others who had ordered shrimp for their entrée. Next he stir fried the steak, then the chicken. He portioned out the steak & chicken to 2 people who ordered the combination entrees. Then he failed at "throwing" pieces of (?) into people's mouths - in their hair, off their noses, on the floor - pretty dismal. Next he stir fried the vegetables and served that. Only then, did he serve me my chicken, which I thought was very odd - why didn't he serve my chicken at the same time as the others? I was very hungry and had my girlfriend not shared some of her shrimp with me, I would've eaten all of the fried rice. I used a Groupon to pay, so the price was reasonable. But, unless you're going for a kid's party or want a very loud experience and only average food, I would not recommend.More

The restaurant has a nice open space. The staff is very friendly. The steak was little tough for my liking. Servers could've been a little more attentive to the empty drinking glasses. Overall it was nice experience. I would recommend people to visit. Every hibachi...restaurant experience is different.More

So I have always seen it from across the room but never sat down at an actual table.. for the first time it was a new experienced, food it's served by stages, from rice being the first right after the aperitif which it's soup and...salad following by meats and other things asked for. It's pretty oily fills one up extremely fast. Over all a nice experience. It's a lot of food. I asked for the three course dinner which constitute chicken, shrimp and steak, that comes with rice and vegetables. The juice I got was not what I was expecting. We arrived and got a table right away, call in advanced though. We got a good parking spot. But other than that it's entertaining. I would go again to actually try sushi.More
