The food was excellent ! The shows at all of the Japanese chop chop things are about the same. I have to say unfortunately the tricks aren't new and at this point we like going for the food because it is hot and served right to you. So if you have kids or someone new to the show by all means go, but if you think there is some new trick out there, well unfortunately no. The guy we had did fabulous seasoning and cooking the food. We ate with a bizarre group of three where they wanted something different with every dish, the first was 'oh I forgot to tell you I had a seafood allergy' then we didn't like the salad or the soup, then she wanted to split the dish with someone else. ' but the chef handled it well by letting us know that he would make the shrimp last, so our appetizer would be at the end of the meal and my wife would get her shrimp at the end. That was probably the most inconvenient. Because my wife did not get her food until the end of the meal.
