We came here with another couple before our cruise the following day. We had such a great experience. The food was amazing - both hibachi and sushi. Fried rice was amazing. The service was also fantastic. We really enjoyed our chef and the wait staff.

It’s a wanna be show guns with smaller portions. Food tasted decent, staff was friendly. Nothing particularly special about it. A little too pricey for the amount of food you get
