Great place to go for a special occasion as they really know how to take care of their guests. The servers are a little slow, and tend to rush you out at the end, but the chefs are the reason why people keep coming back. Good food, great entertainment, pricey beverages but a great evening!

Always excellent food prepared with fanfare right at your table. Best for groups of 8 to 12 where you can get a table as a group. Small groups may need to share with other small groups. The food is very fresh and prepared to order while you watch. We come back regularly...

A few things: the ventilation system in this aging restaurant could really use a revamp. You always leave smelling like the grill. I usually go for the vegetarian option and it is sadly lacking. There are no vegetarian-based sauces and there is no attempt to grill tofu. Instead they just toss some vegetables (mostly onion) of dubious quality together with some soba noodles. It is bland because all the accompanying sauced have chicken stock in them. But... my friends who order meat dishes are always satisfied. The showmanship and playfulness is usually top notch and the drinks are sickly sweet but fun.

Very nice, original menu. Cheffs cooking just in front of you. The only problem to solve is the smell....It seems that the should improve the AC, as the smell gets strong in your clothes. But food is great, and service too
