“Good, but not the best Japanese hibachi style restaurant I have been to”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I went with a large group to eat here for lunch. The service was good and there was a lot of food except there was little seafood in the meal. I ordered scallops with an add on of shrimp. The entrée came to about $20 but it was mostly carrots, rice and bean sprouts with little seafood. I also found the food a bit too salty. The service was good, but the cook was not as much of an entertainer as many are. It is currently the only place in town for hibachi style food so I would go back.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I love this place so much. The staff is always friendly, the food is awesome, a little pricey but well worth the money. The cooks are entertainers too.

“Good dining option when in the mood for Japanese Hibachi or sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

The place is located in the strip mall with plenty of free parking. The restaurant is quite spacious offering many tables, but it gets busy at times. Occasionally there is a wait, but in our 4 visits here the wait was never longer than 15 minutes. All the basic dishes that you would expect from a Japanese Hibachi place are offered here, along with sushi and sushimi. The restaurant is a bit pricey for the location but the food is very tasty. We will definitively visit again.
As of the writing of this review the Teppanyaki Shrimp dish was $18.95; combination dishes (Hibachi Style) are $20+. Just to give you an idea of the prices you may expect.

Tempura, crispy and gentle, excellently fried. Flounder in fish sauce with glazed carrots and brown rice. Friendly staff and quiet relaxed atmosphere.

“not that great for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

we went for lunch and it was just okay. we were seated right away and it didnt take long for them to deliver my sushi. they werent so fast with the refils though, i went to the bar for a refil and one point. the food was good, but they didnt do anything fun as far as a show goes which is the idea of sitting at the grill. special occasion place for dinner, lunch was overpriced for what it was.
