Went to eat there and a few roaches came out of the kitchen on the floor. Food is very expensive for the plain taste.More

This place is great for a party; you can share a hibachi meal for a little extra and still get an enormous meal each (soup, salad, rice, noodles, vegetables, meat of some kind). It's a favourite with the kids too.

There is no denying that the Hibachi dinners at this restaurant are very well prepared. However, on our most recent visit to celebrate our son’s 21st birthday, our chef could not stop complaining about how hot he was. He even made comments such as “This...More

Now with three locations In Newport News,Hampton, and our newest Richmond! We are proud of our staff and chefs for all they work towards requires extensive experience, extraordinary skill, and respect for the spirit of traditional Japanese cuisine. Encounters with seasonal ingredients stimulate our senses and inspire us to craft exquisite works of art for your plate. It is our daily delight to serve you, your family, and friends simple, elegant, beautiful Japanese works. When we opened our Newport News restaurant in City Center it was to continue in the tradition Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar with a nod to the updated look you might find in an upscale metropolitan restaurant. We also opened our doors in the Hampton area, located in Peninsula town center and offer a more eclectic contemporary non hibachi dine in grill and sushi bar experience. I hope we can continue to grow and share our wonderful experiences and passion with you.
