“Teppan”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

The teppan was great- fresh shrimp and scallops. The salad was delicious. Happy hour 5-7 is insane- the sushi and appetizers are fresh. Who can not like $2 beer?

“Food good, Service great”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is a typical teppan house but have a sushi bar as well. The teppan is just fair as teppan goes but the sushi is really good. ( Especially if you hit their 50% off happy hour starting @ 1pm.)
The management is tight on coupons and groupons, yelp deals ( $8 for $16 worth of food presently) being strict with customers rather than realize the original reason for the coupon was to get the people in there. You must eat in the teppan room if you use the groupon so I go in there but end up ordering the cheapest teppan ($7) and order the 1/2 price sushi with my groupon.

“Horrible Customer Service”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

I had a gift card to use for this restaurant so I took my sister for her birthday. I was told that because I had a gift card I could not get happy hour prices. A gift card is just like cash, so to not honor happy hour because of a gift card is unacceptable. Food is just so-so, not that great for the price. I will not go back!

“It's no longer "new" but always good”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Three places in one ... sushi bar, teppan tables, or sit-down Japanese (and sushi) service. We've done all three and all are very good. (The place has been around for all 8 years we've lived in the area - so it's certainly not "new!") We particularly enjoy their sushi ... not too inventive, but always fresh and delicious and properly prepared. They also have a decent selection of cold sake and a full bar. The Teppan tables are pretty typical entertainment and that food is always very good. Haven't had their other traditional Japanese food (e.g. tempura), so I can't comment on that, but given the other food, I suspect they would be very good as well. Great negihborhood place for a good Japanese dinner.

“Teppan fun”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Good food and always fun. Never pay full price, there is always a coupon posted online or in the paper. Always a good night out.
