We ate here while visiting some family in Binghampton. The food was very good and the chef was entertaining. I have eaten at a number of this type of Japanese restaurants and this chef was one of the more entertaining. The food was great and we had some leftover which we took back to our room and had the next day for a snack. Thanks for the great show.

We have been here a number of times for hibachi and every time it was outstanding. They cook the food exactly as you order it, serve you plenty and put on a good show. Much better than most of the similar places in Manhattan and North Jersey and at a much lower cost. Good for going out with friends or the kids.

Fugi San is one of those "finds" when you are out of town that makes the trip better. We had no wait on a Saturday night and were seated with others in the normal hibachi style. The quality of the food was very good and the cooking of it entertaining. The yum yum sauce was a bit watery but tasty none the less. The prices are very reasonable and the service is very good as well. An all around enjoyable experience!

We didn't expect much from a restaurant in a highway motel, even a nice highway motel. But Fuji San was a pleasant surprise. Very pretty decor will all the expected Japanese touches. (Particularly liked the fish flags hanging over the sushi bar.) Ordered appetizers and main dishes, and immediately received a small salad and soup that seem to come with. (The soup was really excellent.) We don't eat sushi, so we can't comment on that. But the gyoza (dumplings) were very tasty, and the yakitori (chicken skewers) were tasty, even if a bit chewy. We both ordered hibachi dishes: one steak with salmon, one filet mignon with shrimp. Both very good. Meats in a salty soy sauce, but the saltiness was balanced off by a slightly sweet sauce on the shrimp (there were a few bonus shrimp on the meat and salmon plate). Vegetables were totally unseasoned, which made them a good mix with the meats or the very tasty fried rice. (Not sure fried rice is authentically Japanese, but it was good.) Portions very generous -- neither of us could finish. The salmon, by the way was a real treat -- grilled to crispiness outside, juicy inside. Service was attentive and friendly. People who sat at the hibachi table (we did not) seemed to be having a great time with a showman chef. As a roadside stop on a long car trip, this was a very pleasant break from Applebee's and Chili's.
