“Excellent”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

My family and I live nearby and love Japanese food. We go here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. My grandson, who is the only one of us who likes sushi, says it is very good. He also loves the calamari, something else the rest of us don't eat. As for the rest of the menu, the service and the restaurant itself, we have never had any problems. The service is excellent. The cooks are great, from the show they put on at the grill to the food that they serve. The atmosphere of the restaurant itself is quite nice. Very understated and not over the top. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for Japanese cuisine.

“My list of favorites”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

I love to go and watch the cooks in the central grill area perform while we wait to be served. Maybe it's kind of the same each time, but I still love it.

“An Entertaining Experience”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

This is a nice building with lots of seating. One can sit around the grill to be entertained as the food is being cooked or can sit at a table and order food to be brought to the table.

“Best Japanese place in town”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

If you are up for Japanese, this is the place. Great hibachi food cooked for you at your table. Sushi is great too... better than you would expect in the middle of the BBQ-heavy Abilene.
