Our server Brian was spot on we never had to ask for a refill and our chef Quincy was great, the food was cooked to perfection! Love their house dressing on their salad, prices are reasonable and the portions are huge, by far the best Japanese Steak House I've ever ate.

We don't get to do big family outings much with a family of 7 and we have NEVER been so disappointed is a Japanese steakhouse! We got seated quickly for a Saturday night but it was later: 7:40pm! We were at a table by ourselves since we take most of it up. A party of four came in about 5... More

Stopped in for a sushi dinner with wife and son. Started with misogyny soup (yum), crab salad (delicious), had a New York Roll with Filler, Spicy Tuna Roll, and the Dragon roll. All were amazing. Had some Polmagrand Saki that percect. Our server Brian was amazing. Checked on us regularly and took great care of us. Thanks Hakata and staff.... More

Got there early, so we could request chef of our choice. He even tried some comedy. The food the best yet. Food flying every where, never missing his mark. Very enjoyable.

We drove up from Emerald Isle to eat here for my birthday; chose this restaurant based on good reviews. We were not disappointed. We ate hibachi - the food was great, service was great, our chef was great and very engaging with not only my children but my wife, mother-in-law, and myself too. Would most certainly dine here again!

The staff is wonderful. Hibachi chefs are great with kids and love making jokes. The food is wonderful. Compared to the other hibachi restaurants in town, this one is our favorite. They go heavier on the garlic and veggies, and lighter on the soy sauce. Shrimp is the best. Def worth repeating.

Service is great! Food is on point. A little expensive but it's a steakhouse. Family friendly! Plenty of parking. I would recommend the steak hibachi!

I've been here a couple times now and have to say this is by far the best hibachi place in the area! Service is great both by the cook and the wait staff.

Had a few drinks at the bar before dinner. I drink hurricanes which most bartenders don't make so I settle on something else. Bartender offered to look it up, another bartender stepped up and not only knew recipe but made best hurricane I think I've had. Server was great, chef was outstanding, food off the chart! Great to go with... More
