“Stick to classic hibachi menu and it will be okay”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The staff here is really good. The chef guys are fun and funny, the waitresses are on top of things. My children love the entertainment that comes with having food prepared in front of them with all the hilarious stunts. That said, we went last night for a birthday dinner (13-year-old's choice) and left with full bellies but somewhat unsatisfied palates. The appetizers ranged from blah to awful. Our spicy tuna was not juicy like we're used to and I'm thinking they may not even have been just prepared. My son's fried crab appetizer was inedible. They salads were bagged iceberg with one tomato and cucumber slice. Luckily, the lackluster veggies were topped with a huge amount of their fantastic homemade salad dressing so we gobbled it right up. The main course (among us we had sirloin, chicken, and tofu) were all very good, I wish they could use a lighter hand on the sauce without forsaking flavor, but still we enjoyed our main courses very much. Did not realize there is a $1.75 upcharge for each order of noodles instead of rice, so I will get rice from now on as the noodles definitely aren't worth it.

“A good choice for a meal with kids”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Our kids liked this restaurant very much. Despite a busy weekend night, the manager worked us in with minimal wait. The food and performance is a good imitation of the more expensive Japanese steakhouses, but don't order sushi here. Bland and uninspired.

“Pretty good, hard to beat the price”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Basic Japanese steak house. The sushi was mushy--best to eat that elsewhere. The steaks were very good.

The food here is great! Staff always friendly, restaurant usually clean. With hibachi style cooking, you can sit back here and enjoy the show!
