We started dinner with a Sake Martini, made the real Japanese way and we enjoyed it with the shrimp flambe, done to perfection and reasonable. Next, we enjoyed our miso soup, followed by a small , but delightful salad with a wonderfully seasoned sauce. The scallop flambe was to die for, the technical term used is YUMMIE. Seared to perfection, seasoned, and melted in the mouth. The meal was served with teppenyaki vegetables and fried rice which really balanced the meal.
It was impossible to even think about desert. We were pleasantly quite full.
The chef at our table was friendly and had good showmanship skills while preparing a great dinner. As a surprise, we then were presented with "A FREE LUNCH TO TAKE" EACH, that was chicken, noodles and rice at no charge. Wow, that really made this dinning experience even more memorable.

Walk to the restaurant from the Baymont Inn and Suites.
Food was very good.
Prices were reasonable. Nothing to dislike really.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. Our chef was amazing and very friendly to our entire table. We also enjoyed one of the new Sake samplers, which is a great way to try different types of Sake that we otherwise would never try. Great idea!

The entertainment here is great if you have never been to a Japanese Steak house where they cook in front of you. Other than that the food is terrible! For the price they charge they need to step up the quality!

I have been going here every time I was in Clearwater since I was a kid. Yes, it is pricey but you get entertainment with your meal as well. Not to mention a ton of food. We got lucky and got free lunch with each of our dinner purchases which fed us for days. Yes, the place could use a little upgrading but it wont stop me from going again. My entire family kids and all loved the experience.
