“Happy Hour!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great happy hour pricing on sushi and drinks. Service was great and overall food was really good, with the exception of the appetizer platter (some combination of fried food and sushi).

What a great place to eat, you see it cooked right in front of. You chose off the menu then it's cooked in front of you. Not a cheap place to eat however would be suitable for families but due to the price might be costly.
We went there with my cousin and his family who live in South Dakota but he had already said to us that the restaurant was of a high standard and we would enjoy it very much we weren't disappointed. They had been to one somewhere else. The staff were brilliant

“Good service, great food, but...”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Wonderful experience! We had six people in our group and didn't have to share the table with other guests. The service was great and the food was delicious (fresh!!!). It was my first time dining at this type of restaurant. I loved the idea of food being prepared right in front of you and enjoyed the entertainment provided by the chef! The only reason i didn't give it a five star rating is ... it was raining/storming outside and the water was leaking through the hood!

“Good food... Not too Japanese though”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Even though I was told this is a Japanese restaurant, it certainly does not match what one would expect from a traditional Japanese restaurant.
Regardless of that, the restaurant is nice and food quality and portion sizes are very good. Service was excellent during my meal and value is average. I would go back there if opportunity arose.

Have been in and walked out of many Japanese Steak Houses due to cleanliness and odor, but this one was very clean. Food was tasty and the chef was entertaining.
