“horrible experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

this place was horrible, the food was luke warm and bland, during the meal i became sick to stomach and was in the bathroom several times, I stopped eating and the other people i was with were very disappointed with their meals. the steak was tough and over seasoned the food was drowning in butter sauces it was so high fat high sodium you could taste no quality. the person at the grill had a plate of food and was eating while cooking which was a turn off. the others were bringing foods out and dumping into the pans so the hot food was mixed with the old. I could not understand a word the waitress was saying she was pointing her fingers at our table and obviously talking about us. we complaied about the service the pricing and the overall bad experience and the manager said oh well sorry. we wont be back. also the other people in the party i was with were sick all evening and most of the next day. dont eat here!!

“Nice change of pace for the Mon Valley area”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Hibachi Buffet opened a couple of months ago, and we have already been there 3 times. While a lot of buffets leave much to be desired, we really liked the food here. The place is busy, so the food is scooped up pretty quick & replaced, so it is fresh & hot. They have a chef in the middle of the buffet and a selection of meats and vegetables that will be grilled "on the spot" if you wish. There is a lot of variety; my husband even ate a frog leg. I think they pretty much have something for everyone, and the service is great & attentive. The desserts -- eh, not so great, standard buffet fare. But after shrimp, crablegs, steak, sushi, soups, etc., you won't have room for dessert anyway.

“New and fresh”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

This place is new and has a been packed since it opened. There is a vast amount of options here in addition to having the chef cook you own creation (which is the point of Hibachi). This type of restaurant in new for this area, but more and more people are starting to use the chef option for creating their own. The food is very fresh as it should being a new place and the high amount of turnover of food in the hot tables. They have limited sushi and raw seafood options. Lots of chinese options, but they also have common fair if your kids want pizza, ham, steak and ice cream. Price is fair, maybe a bit high but they do offer AYCE crab legs. Stop here if you are hungry!
