If you want the taste and quality of the kabuki style show food, this place is it. The food is delicious and promptly made. The former cashier was very soup nazi, but now it's safe to take your time ordering.

I may be easy to please on this one, or this is just my guilty pleasure. I love the teriyaki chicken and some crab wontons. The white sauce here is amazing as well. I am now questioning my taste buds as I see other reviewers...but I just cannot help it! The place is so dang good! If I could eat... More

The very kind employees kept me company as I munched on seaweed and sushi. The restaurant was very quiet but the food was filling and good.

The food was lukewarm at best and service was mediocre. Was very disappointed since this place was recommended by a client of mine.

Tired ns hungry after a day of shopping. Stopped in, not knowing what to expect. Large dining area with minimal decor and glaring fluorescent lights. Ok, so maybe it is more of a takeout place, we decided to stay. There was no place to sit that wasn't blasted by cold air each time the door opened. The woman behind the... More

Menu items are pretty much the same thing, just served with beef chicken or shrimp; either on a plate or in a bowl. Only difference is the item names and the prices.

We've never seen a restaurant with fast food Japanese. The menu layout is tight and a little difficult to read. It looks like it's mostly take out. We ate in. Service was fast, the food was good. It was clean and the staff friendly.

This is one of our go-to places for take out, but we've only actually eaten in the restaurant once. The atmosphere just isn't that inviting, even though the food is good enough for us to drive past other take out restaurants to get there.

We frequent Hibachi when we don't feel like cooking but don't want the usual pizza delivery. It really is quite good and it's plenty of food for the price. Sushi isn't worth it, from what I've had. Definitely try the white sauce for shrimp and the ginger sauce for vegetables!

Thank K C
