“Insulting sushi experience”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We tried Morimoto after a friend had suggested it...and are now seriously questioning that friend's taste! To start, the scorpion bowl was organe juice with a splash of 151. The edamame was over-cooked, unsalted, and unappetizing. The pork dumplings were below average and very mushy. Then came the sashimi appetizer which contained the smallest, thinnest pieces of fish we have ever been served, it was very disappointing. We got two specialty rolls which were totally overpriced for what they were--at around $12 and $13 they were the size of maki rolls and sloppily rolled. It hurt having to pay over $70 for this meal. I will give them credit for getting my sesame allergy correct though. Oh yeah, and they skimp on the ginger and wasabi, and then charge you extra for more. We have never even been in the position where we've had to ask for extra wasabI, let alone be charged for it! Definitely will not be back.

“Horrible”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

This was, hand's down, the worst hibachi meal I have ever had. The chef absolutely ruined almost everything he touched. Well, well done steak, chicken cooked to rubber and limp, burned veggies. Initially he skipped giving me veggies. I joked with him about it and he ran and got more veggies and cooked them on the spot. These were edible but one of the only hibachi items that were. I was very disappointed because we went out of the way to eat there. No second chances here. Once was way too expensive to fool me into trying twice. Real shame too.

“The best japanese restaurant in Concord.”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

So, this isn't New York or California. So there are just a few Japanese restaurants around. I have never eaten in the hibachi section and don't really care to. I prefer the sushi/sashimi menu instead.

The fish is tasty and fresh. The portions are moderate. The service is pretty good, though they don't expect you to order additional items and are quick to bring you the check.

The menu is small and the specials board is by the door, not visible from the table. The wait staff don't offer to tell you about the specials either.

So if you are here and you have a craving for sushi, this is the place to go. If you are looking for an amazing sushi experience, drive to Boston or New york.

“Bad Food”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I have two words and it is simple this place has bad food, from the sushi rolls that come rolled in soybean wrapper instead of seaweed ect. Stay away from this place it is truly horrible.
