“Great restaurant for family and/or friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This place is a hibachi style restaurant or just sit in. It also has a sushi bar. I always go to the hibachi table for lunch or dinner. The chefs are fun and very good at their art. The wait staff is very attentive on keeping your glasses filled. You will leave with a doggie bag unless you haven't eaten in a week and are starving. Prices are reasonable. Here is a good tip though, the dinner portions of meat/fish are twice the size of lunch so if you're there for dinner as a couple, one of you order the vegetarian meal for $9.99 and the other order what ever meat/fish you want and then split the main course. You get all the same portions of everything they serve with the vegetarian. You save on average $10 and still eave more than satisfied. The full meal includes soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, rice, veggies and main course. The lobster sauce on the rice is addictive and AMAZING! Enjoy :)

“suprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

wife wanted to go here- i was skeptical. very counter-intuitive to find the doof. when we walked in i thought "well, here goes $0 for lunch". very nice inside-very expensive looking. looked at the menu- resonable, so probably those little, artsy portions you see in the magazines. nope! no way i could finish it all. soup was different but good. excellent salad. entree was excellent. while not my cup of tea, if the wife wanted to go again i wouldnt hesitate

“Good food, but....waaaay slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We're used to eating at quality Teppanyaki-style (grill) Japanese restaurants. This one is average for what we're used to. Positives: good quantity of food, good quality of food (more on that in a moment) and average pricing for this type of eatery. Negatives: 1) The dish "bus" cart was parked literally 3 ft. from our "table". Every time a server would clean a table anywhere in the restaurant, "bang"--the dishes and silverware went crashing LOUDLY into the tubs. 2) There was a 30 minute delay between our salad and the time the cook arrived to start the meal. No need for that kind of awkward pause. (You definitely get to know your neighbors). During our meal we saw the other 3 grill/tables waiting at least as long as we did---no excuse for that 3) Quality ribeye steaks BUT mine was cooked medium well and was really "chewy", my wife's was cooked well done but was nice and tender. Strange. I would probably go back but only give them one more chance on their slow service.

“excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

one of the better overall restaurants in Pigeon Forge. Recommend that you get seated where they can cook the food in front of you. Very good price, excellent service and food, and a great show to see them cook. The chicken for lunch with all the extras was only $7.49, which is not more than fast food and so much better.

“Disrespect”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Am a local patron who dines there frequency. Never been so embarrassed or treated with disrespect anywhere! I work in a local restaurant and have always recommend little tokyo to my guest. Yesterday feb. 18 2013. Went in for early bird special server told us we couldn't do it (for some reason) no explanation. Order steak hibachi and other entrees food was great service was lacking because she apparently was the only one there. Understand being busy sitting there with empty cokes wating patiently . Come time to pay. Looking at the bill was charged $1800 for ribeye hibachi.when asking her she said ribeye was the only steak on the menu.put the money in the server book.plan on leaving the tip on the table as always.she opened the book look at the money and said you better leave the tip on the table. planning on it until that point. She followed us outside hollering at us and flipped us off.not been able to get ahold of the manager as of yet.in fear of going back to our favorite restaurant that she will spit in our food.
