My family & I are on vacation. We were looking for a good place to eat other than "fast food", but we had 1 in our group that's mentally handicapped that absolutely will not eat Japanese food. The ppl here @SHOKUDO were MOST ACCOMMODATING IN THAT THEY COOKED TERIYAKI CHICKEN W/VEGGIES & CARROTS BUT WE'RE WILLING TO SUBSTITUTE FRENCH FRIES... More

I got the teriyaki chicken. Big portions, and fresh. Always have good service here, and good food. I usually get takeout , the restaurant itself could use some redecorating. Overall very good.

Maybe if I really liked Japanese food I would rate it higher. Soup very watery, wish I had gotten salad. Meal was tasty and even though I don't care for carrots they were good. Not the best atmosphere.....too dark inside. It wasn't my favorite place to eat in town but it's good for a change.

Have been going for years. Good food, good value, atmosphere a little on the dark side - guess it would be romantic. In 4 years - going at least once a month have only had 2 meals I did not like.

My husband and I found this restaurant once on a vacation to the area. We were riding around and found it. It's great! Food's delicious and staff is friendly. We frequent this place now almost everytime we're in town. Have taken family members there too. Great place!

The Filet and Mushrooms as well as the Hibachi Chicken are so good. Try the Crab Rangoon appetizer and ask for ginger dressing on the salad...delicious. The service is excellent. We love this place and have returned many times.

Service and food always good here. Most recent visit, steak and chicken hibachi combo was especially good. Their ginger dressing is excellent. They are best known for their hibachi plates, but their Chinese appetizers are also very good. $5.99 lunch specials.

This is a typical Japanese restaurant in small town America. You know what you're getting. But, it was good and the price was right. I would definitely eat her again.
