Staff is friendly and the chefs talented and entertaining at this hibachi steakhouse across from the train station in Mt. Kisco. Our waitress was completely inefficient, which is inexcusable, considering waiters in this style restaurant have much less to do with the customers than at regular table service establishments. Exhaust fans were blowing on us the entire meal.

The portions of meat and vegetables in our hibachi dinners were very skimpy; the hibachi steak had many pieces of beef that could not be chewed, and even the chicken had some pieces that could not be chewed. We left hungry- a first for us at a Japanese hibachi steakhouse. In future, we will go back to our old favorites in White Plains and Hawthorne.

We went in to enjoy a hibachi dinner. There were 15 of us. They brought out the salad & there was a roach in my son's salad!!!!! He was so upset! It was soooooo disgusting. We all got right up & left immediately!!!! The waiter offered to seat us at the next table over. Oh yeah! That would have solved the problem. I can't & don't wanna imagine how many roaches are in that kitchen. :(

the waiters put on a good show--food is fine---some items much better than others...but watching food prepared gives you some peace of mind!!

good location----not fancy, but good for birthdays, and special outings with the children.

Okinawa's shtick is the hibachi table, made famous by Benihana. Kids love them. I find the end product to be bland and boring.
However, Okinawa also serves sushi, and has a seating area set apart from the hibachi circus where you can dine without the hustle and bustle.

In a pinch you won't be hurt here, but there is much better sushi nearby.
