“More show than substance...”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

It is undeniable that this place and places like can be entertaining the first couple of times around...but after that one begins to see what they're really about...overpriced menu items and low-quality preparation. If you pay $30 dollars for a steak, you don't expect to receive a really thin cut, sliced up steak (like the one's served in this restaurant) with some fried rice (the most plentiful thing they serve) and a some hibachi-cooked veggies. The same holds true for the seafood and other items served. Your best bet is to order sushi only. They don't do too bad on the drinks and overall service, but it's overall too pricey for what you actually get in return.

“Great Hibachi and Sushi”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

This is one of our favorite restaurants in town. We have been going back for 20 years. I love the steak and shrimp while my husband enjoys the halibut and a side of sashimi. This is a great place to go out to see a show and meet new people (you have to sit with others if you are a small part). The food portions here are large and we always leave happy.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Not the cleanest looking place, but the wife keeps dragging us back. Shrimp is not always right, but the filet hasn't been wrong yet. Avoid the sushi.
