“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

This restaurant recently opened in Bozeman. It is the first of its kind in the town. We were excited about trying it out. It was once a Bennigans Brew Restaurant, and they did a major remodel to the place, and they did a pretty good job on the interior. It is like a Benihana Teppanyaki Restaurant, with folks sitting around the "grill" while the hibachi chef was chef prepares the meal. And, he was fun.One thing that I thought was kind of crazy, is that they UPCHARGE you for fried rice. White rice is included , but not fried rice. For what you pay, that seems like it would be a no brainer to give you a choice. One in our party ordered Sushi, and they never got it, and the place was not the busy. The waiter was just OK. I have 10% if that gives you a clue.The food was nothing spectacular, but OK

“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

The food was fresh and tasty, service was fantastic. Although we chose not to, you may sit on the hibachi side of the restaurant where they cook your food in front of you. There is a wide variety of food to choose from and the waitress had many helpful suggestions.

“Most exciting dinner ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Not only is the good delicious, it's prepared right in front of you by an incredibly talented, humorous chef. They spray sake, or 7up for underage, and cheer you on until it spills over you. Very entertaining. I would come here just for the show that they put on! This is absolutely a must see. The service is fabulous as well. Not too expensive.

“Delicious and entertaining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

This was a fun place to eat with our kids. The filet and shrimp was delicious and the cook was very entertaining. The prices were reasonable for a Japanese steakhouse.

“Horrible service but good food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I will never return to this restaurant and will not recommend it for anyone! We were told only 15 mins for a table. It was 30 minutes later when we got seatted and then were told it would be another 1/2 hour or so after we got our drinks as they were short on chefs. Okay, shouldn't you have mentioned that long before now? Our waiter was the worst on the planet. He informed me for kids there is no milk, cranberry juice or orange juice. When I said it was on the menu and asked about the full bar they had he snapped and told me all they have is apple juice. Really? so not worth it. We were at the table 40 minutes before the chef showed up.He was okay, tried to be entertaining. I never got a refill on my drink or anyone else at the table We had to ask for our check as it was taking so long. I would say we were there for over 2 hours total! it was insanly slow. The food was good however but so not worth the wait.
