Our wait staff were good & attentive, which is why we gave Hayashi two stars instead of just one, but the food wasn’t good & some of it was downright terrible. The fried rice & noodles were tasteless & greasy, tempura items were cooked in...old rancid oil, our sushi roll was tasteless, & the house sake the worst we’ve ever had. Our to-go chicken dish was so tough we had to throw it out. Hard to understand why so many people give this place 4 or 5 stars - they must be staff or friends & family of staff & owners. For a much better meal in town, try the Japanese Kitchen.More

I can’t say the food was good just average. Server was not on top tonight. Forgot several things. We had to wait to get sauces, refills . Maybe a different day would improve this review

We went there for the first time. The wait was long to get a seat. Then once we got the seat, the wait was long for the guy to come cook at the grill. Once the grill chef came - he was super talented, however...showed very minimal interest in doing his tricks. His attitude portrayed he was in a hurry. He left too soon. Food taste was ok. Not the best. Don’t think I will go back.More

Was seated fairly quickly, but service at teppan grill took 0ver 40 minutes before cooking started. Ordered steak teriyaki cooked medium. It was a very tough, stringy cut of meat that was served well-done by the cook at the grill. Not appetizing at all. Lots...of rice and noodles were given and flavor was good. Husband ordered Teriyaki chicken breast. Meat was also overcooked and dry so much that he suggested we not even take our leftovers home. Teppan grill "show" was fine- nothing new but he did fling broccoli into people's mouths at the table and squirted Saki in a guy's mouth from the bottle. If it was just the food, I'd say 2.5 stars. Atmosphere was decent and clean with good ambiance.More

We came here to celebrate our daughters birthday, after our waiter took the orders and served our beverages the cook came out and repeated our orders. One person in our group changed her mind about her sides, the cook started to talk very loudly with...the waiter and ridiculed him to get the orders right. It was very unprofessional and disturbing. You seriously need to do a training with your staff on how to behave in front of your costumers!More

I would like to express my total disappointment with their management at the Albuquerque location. My Parents recently were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. My mother, who loved their food, decided to spend their special day at this establishment. She called 1 MONTH in advance...to make dinner reservations for 16 of us. Two weeks prior to our reservation she called to confirm and was told "Yes" we have you scheduled to come in. Just to make sure she called once more 1 week before our arrival and was told again that yes our reservation was confirmed. Upon checking into their restaurant for our scheduled reservation we were told they had no reservation for us and began sitting another party who showed up after ours into the private rooms. All private rooms were filled up. The Managers only comment was "I don't know what to tell you" and offered nothing but, "you can wait until the other parties finish eating". It brought my Mother to tears!!!!!! There we were, 16 of us in the lobby as my parents anniversary was about to be ruined. Completely unacceptable! Luckily, I was able to call another restaurant (Azuma) who understood the importance of this special day for them and graciously got us in right away into their private room. They not only lost the business of 16 paying customers that day but the business of my family from now on.More

This place emphasizes its "teppan-yaki" (plate-grilled food) with numerous teppan stations filling the center of the restaurant. Regular tables, and a sushi bar with about 20 seats are also available if you want to avoid the noise and show at the teppan tables. We stopped...in for lunch, and had a good time, and good food, off the teppan grill. The Chef's show is part of the experience, but I have to admit, it is less interesting the 50th time through. My wife's small filet was tender and tasty. My calamari/scallop combo was somewhat unusual for the area, but grilled tender and tasty.More

We have visited this hibachi restaurants many times and have had different experiences each time. Sometimes it has been bad, but mostly decent. We went on a Sunday evening and it was packed for the hibachi style dining. We didn’t want to wait so we...ate the hibachi food but at a regular table. We actually thought the hibachi food at a normal table tasted better than sitting next to the grill! We can’t wait to try it this way again!!! Especially since there wasn’t a wait!More

Took 10 family members for dinner. The teppanyaki cooking was basic at best and not entertaining. The lobster was way salty and hardly edible. The Filet was cut in huge chunks but ok. The chicken was over cooked and on the dry side. Won’t be...going back anytime soon.More
