“Food cooked on a grill in front of you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

My family enjoys going here. Everyone is seated around a large grill. The cook makes dinner and jokes. The food is very good. It is expensive.
It is also difficult to talk if that is your main goal.
Service is great.

“Birthday celebration PERFECTION!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We were here just the other night. We were celebrating my mom's birthday, 8 of us. The service was FANTASTIC! Wait staff was excellent, attentive and accomodating. The chef was very entertaining and cooked everything to perfection. My mom felt she was treated so special on her day, what more can you ask for!?
We will be back! Thank you!

“Very good sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Enjoyed the sushi but tables could be cleaner. Restaurant more directed at cooking tables rather than sushi but definitely a good place for sushi.

“Great place for sushi or hibachi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

With their new, bigger, location on the same street even more people can come enjoy the great Japanese atmosphere and food. Sushi or Hibachi it's an experience you don't want to miss and one you won't forget.

“Great food with a show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Very pricy for Crystal Lake, but the food is excellent and the cooking tables are a lot of fun, especially for the kids.
