My fiance and I are always eyeing the beautiful pagoda architecture of the Kyoto of Williamsburg. We stopped in shortly after it opened on a Sunday afternoon. We were promptly and politely greeted by a hostess in a kimono. We noticed most of the patrons went inside the sushi bar, but we ordered hibachi. I ordered a California roll, which... More

This place was not what we expected. The waitress maintained a poor attitude the entire time. The food was not what you'd expect from a Japanese restaurant. We had to endure the waitress huffing & puffing the entire time towards us when asked for help. Just BAD service!

have been to 100s of these Japanese steak houses and the only thing I'm usually hoping and expecting to be different is the show ... I was very excited while waiting for our table as some of the other chef's were really turning it up ... so when it was our turn to sit down needless to say I was... More

We went here because our timeshare recommended it. The chef was funny and very interactive. The food especially the filet mignon was out of this WORLD!. I don't know what people who gave bad review were talking about. I go to Japanese steakhouses all the time and this was great. The food was good and I had a great time!!!!

When the placed the plastic plates in front of us we knew right away this place was not going to be up to par. Needs renovations as the place has a funky smell to it. (SMELLS OLD). Not worth the price....

It truly was a bit lackluster. We came in a rainy night and it was not very busy. The staff was not very friendly. Our family loves hibachi and normally kids are very excited, but this was just not that great. Not a ton of flavor, the cook was ok, but not great.

The soup and salad were great. The $2.50 extra for fried rice is a joke. We got the steak and shrimp and steak and chicken combos. The steak had a wild/gamey flavor. Shrimp and chicken were much better. I have visited many of these types of restaurants over the years and this was in the bottom for food taste. The... More

This restaurant was very clean, entertaining and the meal was very good. We have only eaten at Sakura in the past, This Japanese restaurant puts the others to shame.

Hibachi tables can accommodate up to 8. The chefs are all charismatic and love putting on a show that is very kid friendly! Not the cheapest dinner, but worth the cost for a fun night out. While the food was not necessarily 5 star, it's freshly cooked, hot, and they should be able to satisfy most palettes. They also have... More

We went tonight to celebrate my moms birthday. The cook was drunk. He continued to mess up each of his "tricks" continuously dropping his cooking utensils on the grill. He tossed hot food at both my 4 year old son and another child (approximately 2-3 years old), many times while they were not looking. I had to ask him to... More
