“horrible service, food was okay, drinks sucks!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

we had a agoing away party with my 17 co-workers. we sat at the hibachi table which has a sticky, moldy smell on the floor. the wait staff were not very friendly at all.
it took forver to get our drinks and when it finally came, it wasn't made right. and when we complaint, the waitress tried to say that's how it supposed to taste like. when i told them to fix it or i don't want it, she brought extra alcohol on the side rather that bringing the drink back to the bartender then she charge me almost $10.00 at the end of the meal. i was never told of her plan. then she tried to give discount on that extra alcohol and will only charge me $3.00. i said no and wants to speak to the manager and she said the manager had left the building.
we will never go back there. there are of plenty of much nicer, cleanear restaurant in town who would be willing to have our business. this is not the only bad experience but i thought they had gotten better and some of my co workes had not been there and wants to try so i went along... the first time we were there, it took 2 hours to get our food because the hibachi cook was 35minutes late! imagine that!
then the next day i called the manager and pretty said if we were not happy, go elsewhere! well we will just do that and will tel every single person who will listen about our bad experience. hope they will go out of business. we have no room for rude business like Tokyo Live in lafayette, LA....

“Not that great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

We have a Japanese steak house in our area, so we expecting the same sort of experience. Unfortunately, the service was very poor, and the price was more than it was worth.

“Waited 2 hours and still not served”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

I visited yesterday with 2 colleagues and sat at the habachi at 8.30pm. Despite numerous complaints about not being served the waitress just kept saying it won't be long. We got fed up and left at 10.30 to go across the street to Outback where we served within 10 minutes.
