About once a month my wife and I get the craving for sushi. The Tokyo Hibachi is one of two of our favorites in the city of Ithaca. (A 15 mile drive for us.) We arrived on this recent Saturday afternoon around 5 pm and there was already a good crowd of diners. Our charming waitress, Amy, was prompt, courteous, and efficient. The beef negimaki appetizer was seared to perfection and its sauce was so good that I saved it to pour over some rice later in the meal. For the main course I had the sushi-sashimi combo with a dragon roll on the side. The fish portions were ample, and for it being the month of June, the flavor of the fish was outstanding.
We've never used the hibachi tables, but they're always occupied and the diners always sound delighted.
The only downside to our experience that evening was that--at least at our table--the restaurant failed my "sticky arm" test. That is, even though the place was otherwise spotlessly clean, the surface of the table in the booth we sat at had only been superficially cleaned, and residue of the various sticky sauces from the previous customer were still there.
