A great location that offers wonderful food options. I love sushi and the sushi that I got there was aesthetically pleasing and tasty too! They also have a hibachi grill but if you want the food from one, but don't want to experience the preparation experience that comes with it, you can order from it and have it brought to... More

He is just as good and performed as well as I have seen a Japanese chef perform they're typical tricks.He also prepared a outstanding meal that included the most delectable shrimp and lobster I have had in sometime. Who is the chef...I am referring to ,... More

It was fine based on what I ordered I also ordered a couple of domestic beer and as impressed that they were... More

On a Thursday night it was very quiet 10 - 15 customers. Recieved a warm and friendly greeting an was quickly seated. With several Hibachi tables and standard tables and a sushi bar there is something for everyone. I chose the sushi bar and was impressed. They have the standards as well as chef specialities. Drinks and sushi and sashimi... More

We had a lot of fun here. Our chef was not Japanese, but was fun! Food was good, but very salty. the showmanship sitting at the Hibachi grill was worth it.

We had 12 for a business dinner. Several orders of sushi for a few folks but the majority of us got steak and/or seafood meals. The service was outstanding, the food prep show as awesome and the quality of the food was great in my opinion. Actually there were no complaints in the group. My meal was a filet, shrimp... More

I could not have been happier. One of the best places I have ever eaten. It will definitely be on "my list" from now on. I will go here every trip to Charlotte. I had the steak and shrimp and the shrimp was some of the best I have ever had. Very entertaining and the chef was very personable and... More

A lot of the reviews on here about the hibachi- I tried the sushi. A cocktail, edamame and 3 types of rolls for under $40, you can't go wrong. The specialty rolls all sounded interesting, but I stuck with 2 classic rolls (spicy tuna and shrimp tempura) and 1 special roll (kamikaze fusion). I attached a picture of the kamikaze... More

We just left this place & it was great! My only complaint is it is a little pricey BUT our server was VERY polite & gave us an option like our Japanese restaurant at home would have had. Not only did it save us money I was able to get my beloved sushi appetizer, but it also saved us less... More
