Read rave reviews online when we picked this place and honestly I was shocked when I walked in. It's in a strip mall, and it looks like it's takeout. It is also a jewelry store, so don't be surprised when you walk in and think you're in the wrong place. The food was just ok. The price was a little high for what you actually get. Apparently their online menu prices are different than the in-store price. The veggies were kinda disgusting, the shrimp was cooked perfectly and tasted great, but the steak was dry and had no flavor at all. The rice was what you would expect at a CHINESE restaurant, but the yum-yum sauce was delicious. The salad was a little too hard to eat with plastic silverware, so that made it to the trash along with all the veggies at our table. All in all, if you're looking for good japanese without the wait you usually get hibachi style, this is NOT the place to eat. I definitely won't spend $60 there again. We almost went somewhere else when we first got there and I left, after eating, feeling like I would have been happier had we done just that. Save your money or go somewhere else.

If you like habachi at a good price this place is for you. This place is family owned and the people there are always friendly.
