“Consistently great food”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

This place is simply delicious. I've eaten the cooked meals and the sushi many times over the years and have nothing but superlatives to say. Moreover, this place is always packed so clearly others agree.

“Excellent dinner choice but pricey for groups”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We took a large group of 25 to this joint for a business outing and while the food was good, the bill was high. This place is on par with a standard Nagasaki or Benihana chain location. Dinner starts with a miso soup, a salad topped with a peanut? dressing. Entrees are your standard chicken, beef, or seafood protein selection prepared at the table hibachi style by a chef that builds a flaming onion tower and throws brocoli into your mouth off of a spatula.
A good time and a full belly but it will cost you. Our group of 25 walked out of there with a 1300.00 tab,

“A steady decline”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

My nephew is 13 and it has been his annual b'day dinner spot for as long as I can remember (back in the day when they were located at the strip mall). I now take my son here. The food is always good. What has declined is the service. It is very unpredictable. The management not attentive and the chefs can be very hit or miss. However, when you do get an exceptional chef it makes the hefty bill seem almost ok. Thr problem is no consistency. With the money folks have to dish out it should be an establishment with top notch service across the board.

“Average Hibachi Restaurant”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

A very Americanized take on hibachi, similiar to Benihana. I got the chicken teriyaki which was overcooked and smothered in sauce. The fried rice is like normal fried rice but also drowned in the same sauce. I will admit it's tasty, but it's too sweet for me. I had the seared ahi tuna once before which was better than the chicken.

If you are looking for traditional sushi, I would look elsewhere. Their sushi is used mostly for rolls that are only found in America. They do have "normal" nirigi, but I wouldn't chance it, not a Japanese sushi chef in the whole place.

Overall, many people like this restaurant, but I think it's a little over priced for what you're getting. When we sat at the tables (not at the grill), the service was bad. The waiter didn't smile once. I would recommend it if you like what they serve (Americanized Japanese), but not if you're looking for Japanese food.
