We had a group of 12 and I cannot say enough good about our visit!! We had reservations and when we arrived we were promptly seated. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient, we had no longer waiting periods for anything. Our chef...was AMAZING!! He was talented, funny and entertaining. Our food was absolutely PERFECT! I would definitely visit again!... More

Nothing special for New Years Eve, but still a good solid Japanese hibachi steakhouse with the standard hibachi menu. Service was pretty good for Myrtle Beach, food was very good. They scramble an egg in fried rice, not all do. You also get noodles, which very few others do.

2nd time going to Lil Tokyo and I promise I will go back on my next trip to MB. We went for lunch and we each had the lunch special ... 2 speciality rolls and either a soup or salad for $20. On top of that we ordered the Japanese Egg Roll as an appetizer (think crab ragoo on steoriods)... More

Thank you Edward & Tu for your terrific service and great food. The restaraunt has both traditional table and hibachi style service. We had the Hibachi grill service. The utensils show was impressive but the food was even better.

Upon arriving in MB, my hubby and I needed a sushi fix. Reviews led us to Lil Tokyo and we weren't dissapointed. Sushi was beautifully presented and yummy. And the wine servings were not skimpy! Our waiter, Edward, was so pleasant to chat with and provided excellent service. We will be back -- for sushi AND hibachi! Who knew we'd... More

Our waiter was Edward. He was great. Our cook was new but did a great job. The food was very good. It was very clean. The only problem was that we had trouble finding it. We called them and they even returned with a call to help us

I always saw this restaurant but never went. Finally decided to stop in for dinner while out shopping and made the right choice. We didn't try the hibachi but had the sushi. It was excellent as was the service. Our waitress Karina was very friendly and insightful about the menu. We will definately be dinning here again.

We thought the wait was a little lengthy, although they were running a special and this time of year I guess its to be expected. It was well worth the wait however when we got to the table and we now understand why this place is so poplar. The amount and quality of the food was exceptional and our waiter... More

Thank you Robert R for your feedback, i'm so glad that you enjoyed, about the wait is 10 minute before we close the table ether someone join your table or not, and turn it to the chef, and take another 7 minute max to prepare your food before they can go to your table!
