This was my first time with my mom eating here while visiting the area on vacation. We ate in the Hibachi grill area of the dining area and it was very good. My mom and I both liked the dish we had ordered and it...was a lot of food. The pricing was mid range as well.More

The worst customer service I have experienced while in Pigeon Forge. Good sushi, not so good hibachi and poor customer service. We were seated and basically forgotten. No water refill or “how’s your meal?” Definitely not recommended. Better sushi options in Pigeon Forge.

Food was fresh, the Chef was great too. But when your wait staff sucks, well it knocks off points. First visit they tried to sit us in the hibachi section when we told them we were there for sushi only, then I asked for miso...soup and they served me chicken broth. Come to find out they don't even serve miso soup. What sushi restaurant doesn't serve miso soup? The next visit I ordered shrimp tempura as an appetizer. It was overcooked and rubbery. The only saving grace again was the sushi nigiri. The eel is great. Heads up, they don't take reservations and dinner can have you waiting 2+ hours.More

Every trip to Pigeon Forge ends or begins with Little Tokyo! The lunch portions are huge, reasonably priced, and so delicious.

I’m not sure if this restaurant is highly rated for their hibachi and not their sushi, but when I ordered two different specialty rolls that had tempura shrimp and tempura chicken I expected the tempura meats to be freshly cooked. When I received the rolls,...the tempura meats were cold and soggy & were some of the worst sushi rolls I’d ever had as someone who seeks out sushi in all cities traveled to. The waitress was so kind and friendly and did go e me a discount. She was such a gem! But the sushi was just awful. If you’re coming here for sushi I would not recommend whatsoever.More

Brought my teenage sons for lunch, and was not disappointed. The chef was entertaining and the food was delicious. My son said the best scallops he has ever eaten, cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend.

Family of 8 adults and 2 children. Seated at hibachi table. Food was excellent and the chef was fun and entertaining. Very large portions, two of us shared an order (an extra $7 at dinner) and we still had a to go box full of...leftovers. The steak was perfectly cooked and tender and flavorful. Chicken was tender with the prefect amount of teriyaki sauce. We also had some sushi which was also very good. A fun experience!More

Went here for lunch and had a great meal with plenty of leftovers. I had rib eye and chicken which was good. Grill artist put on a good show but was a little hard to understand.

Our experience was terrible from the moment we walked in until walked out feeling completely disappointed and mad. Don't know how this place win the traveler's choice. So we walked in we'll before closing and told that they are full so can't take anymore, not...even giving us the options to wait. After we asked to order to go, they decided to seat us, turned out they weren't full like they said. Table was sticky, chairs were sticky and no server to come by for very long time probably over 10min. Finally a waiter came to take our order and again he didn't come back to bring our drinks not even water. The appetizers came before water and no plates or silverware. After what seemed like forever our food finally showed up and our sushi plate was missing a piece, and he only brought one soy sauce dish so we yet again had to wait for the waiter. I probably reminded him my drink 3 times and I got my drink after my dinner came! Food was not good anyway, steak overcooked and way way too much sauce. From the beginning to the end it was horrible. Just mad that we wasted our vacation dinner there.More

My husband and I ate at the hibachi grill with several other people, three men that were local and two ladies from California. Maybe it was our chef but the food was very bland and the rice was not fully done. We also waited at...least 30 minutes before the food came out. The locals seemed to enjoy there food but the ladies from CA and me and my husband did not. I will not be back when visiting Smoky Mountains.More
