My daughter had a medical appointment in Peoria that I knew may not be much fun. So we decided to try Osaka and ate at the hibachi grill. What fun! Our chef was skilled and funny. He made sure our meals were cooked perfectly. DD was wearing Hello Kitty sneakers and he pointed out that he's from Japan too, and that all the girls in his home town also love Hello Kitty. The portions were generous and the seasoning was not so salty or heavy so that you couldn't taste the veggies. We had both the steak and chicken, but did not upgrade to the filet. The clear soup was nice, however the ginger in the salad dressing ws too strong, and we tend to like ginger quite a lot. We will be back!

This restaurant has a hibachi side and a small sushi side. My sister and I sat on the sushi side. The waitress told us it was happy hour, buy 2 rolls get 1 free. Between the two of us we ordered 4 rolls and ice tea. Bill total was $38! Amazing! The service was fast. Sushi was crazy fresh and beautifully presented. Sushi chefs were very friendly. I've eaten at many sushi places and tried many different rolls, but the super Volcano roll was out of this world. I highly recommend it! Will be back again soon to bring more friends to try this amazing roll!

This is one of the best Hibachi places I have ever experienced. The night we ate here, we were the lasts guests to seat and we were concerned we would be rushed and not properly attended. We were blown away by the whole experience from the entertaining Hibachi show, the food (portions,taste,etc) and such a friendly staff. For being out of towner's we were treated like local regulars. I wish we could have eaten there every night of our trip, but we were on business. We will definitely return to visit here again when in Peoria!

Our most recent experience was a lunch in their traditional Japanese separate floor seating room. This room is one of five seating options including standard table seating, a sushi bar, a beverage bar and seating around hibachi grills where hibachi cooking is done with a touch of entertainment value. The options allow you to tailor the dining experience to the occasion. The hibachi grill seating is a great choice for party groups and the hibachi chefs are talented in the Americanized form of hibachi cooking. Sashimi and sushi selections are freshly prepared and tasty. Tempura is not as light as true Japanese tempura but fresh and well prepared for an American locale. Having lived in Japan for nearly four years, I rate this as very good for a U.S. venue but not fully Japanese in detail. Lunch selections are an excellent high value way to explore the menu and presentations. Service has always been prompt and professional. Noise levels and seating around the hibachi grills are conducive to a fun night but not in depth conversation beyond people immediately adjacent yo your seat. If a birthday is being celebrated put introvert reservations on hold, the guest of honor is well focused upon on a concluding bit of fun entertainment.

Food was good (not great). Orfered shrimp tempura..skimpy on the shrimp. Atmosphere is great..reason why chose this place over another place in town. Service is normally great but we did not get water refills. Spouse mentioned it was my birthday..said they would do the special song thing...never did and we left disappointed. We were in the sushi area and they were understaffed. Would go there again but disappointed this last visit.
