“Chef talks too much”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

If you want great food, then this is your place. But our cook tonight shared his whole life story and we could have done without that.

“Mediocre like most places around here”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

If you want a fair hibachi at a premium price, then this is your place. Our cook was a better entertainer than a cook. I did order sushi (to compare to my fav in P'cola) and it was ok. There are not many choices at the beach so this place is pretty fun but you can get mediocre food cheaper at other places. The steak was not bad but my shrimp were barely done and tasted like frozen iodine.

“Fantastic food and entertaining!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We come here when we visit Gulf Shores. Adds a variety with our daily seafood restaurant visits! Food is fresh and preparation entertaining. Our meals are always delicious. Staff are friendly and the sitting areas are clean and thought out. It's in an outdoor mall with a movie theater so it's the perfect time to catch a movie after dinner. We usually visit the different shops, grab a coffee at books a million and head to publix next door for groceries to take back to the condo. Two thumbs up!

“You Have To Be In The Mood”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

My wife and I were in our first evening in Gulf Shores and were just looking for a decent place, good food, and a relaxing atmosphere. We happened to walk in here. I had forgotten what a hibachi, Japanese restaurant was like. We were seated on one of the "pods". We wanted to face differently, so we moved over two places. The host wasn't real pleased with this. We ordered. We got drinks, soup, and salad. Then we waited... and waited... and waited. Finally, when four more diners were seated in our "pod", ordered, received and eaten their soup and salad, the hibachi chef came over and prepared the entree's (20+ minutes). And then, the food was only ok. Different time, different mood,maybe better opinion. Not this time.
