This was "the" best Japanese steak house we have ever been to. The food was TERRIFIC! We are friends out of town and came to Columbia to help bring our granddaughter to USC, while here we wanted to take our daughter out to dinner for her birthday as we cannot be with her next week. She requested this style of... More

This was a great experience! I went with a friend for fellowship! We had a great time and a good cook! He was hilarious. I had the steak, chicken, and shrimp which is your best deal being it is only a few dollars more. Be prepared to pay because I spent $34.65 I believe. It is a kid friendly atmosphere.... More

Oh my goodness! The food here was amazing, I must say I believe this is the best Japanese restaurant I have had by far and I have eaten at a lot of Japanese restaurants. The steak was extremely tender and melts in your mouth and the seasoning on the food was exquisite! If I am in the area I would... More

The area was very crowded, and we needed to put our name on a waitlist. The service was very helpful & friendly. The bar staff ordered us an appetizer while we waited. Of course the chef cooking dinner is like other places of this type, very entertaining, great for children & very good at what they do. Food very good... More

Tried the sushi bar only, many selections, taste ok. The kamikaze roll was oily, love the golden dragon roll though. Kind of expected more than that but it's ok!

The food was excellent and the service was great. The people that work there were fun and did a great show while cooking. They also were very amusing and funny. We had a great time with the family. I only gave it 4 stars because of the value. It was pretty expensive. Our bill was close to 300 dollar for... More

Excellent sushi bar. Great selection of some unusual sushi. Kind of an interesting twist on old standards. The rolls I chose came with little salads too. Tuna tataki was excellent. Toppings it off with fresh mochi is always a welcome treat. Highly recommended, and I for one, will be back.

Thank Fred B
