Second time in 2 years, it hasn't changed a bit. Friendly service, inexpensive drinks, good food. Makes it a nice end to a long day at the parks.

Food was excellent and service good. Waiter had to be asked for a few items more than once, but service really was pretty good. Largest sashimi slices I've ever received-fantastic! Never been charged for fried rice by a hibachi restaurant like this place, so it was a bit disappointing here. Regardless, we would go again and glad we went this... More

Best if you go with a big group so that you can have a table by yourselves. Only open at dinner time and when we were there, had a wait....but not too long.

Summary: One does not expect to find a quality Japanese place in a Midwest town like Sandusky. However, this place is indeed a good quality option for a meal.

Hibachi steak- can't beat it! Always a good dinner and a show. Friendly staff that is prompt with each course. It's one of our favorite special dinners. Look for coupons in the Town Moneysaver.

This place is a little pricey. They put on a good show. The food is fine. You are paying for the show more than the food.
