I love Japanese Steak Houses but this was the worst one I have ever been to. The prices were pretty average but that was only thing, everything else was poor. Only white rice was included. Fried rice was extra, stick with the white rice. The fried rice had no flavor at all (I am not sure how that was possible). The vegetables were actually Vegetable...zuccini. The shrimp were cut up us pieces. Nothing had any flavor. The chef did not do any of the "tricks" that you expect to see. The food was cooked in a unusual order. The rice was cold before you got anything else. If you ordered a combo 1 meat was served 20 minutes before the other one. The veggies came after everything else was gone. The chef did attempt to "toss" the shrimp into the mouths of 2 diners brave enough to want shrimp that had been sittting on the side of the grill for 45 minutes and was cold. On the plus side it did seem that we got a "trainee" chef and that diners at other tables were doing better than we did. 2 people at our table got up and left without eating their dinners. No adjustments were made to anyones bill. I guess knowing that this was a tourist area and there was little chance that they had to worry about return customers gave them no reason to make the customer happy. On top of bad food a 18% tip was added to the bill. Do not waste your money or time, there are a lot of other Japanese Steak Houses that are worth your business!

Very good food. Excellent service. I had the Steak and Shrimp and I was impressed with the hibachi grill. The children at our table were fascinated by the performance of our cook.

I am giving this place 2 stars because I want to give it a 4 for the delicious sushi and a 1 for the horrendous staff. Service is consistently awful at this Ginza. You will never get a water refilled. drinks and appetizers will probably come after your sushi. the check will come to you 30 minutes after you are done eating. They will never apologize for anything though. They will act like it is the customer's fault that they expected the appetizer to come before their entree. Still will go for sushi happy hour though and just sit at the bar.

We gorged on sushi and were not disappointed. They also have hibachi, but that wasn't our mission that day. Show up during their happy hour, before 6pm I believe, and save a few dollars. The selection was great and they gave you a paper menu to mark up what you wanted to so there was no confusion when ordering. Loosen your belt and belly up to the sushi bar or grab a table with friends.

When the restaurant offers you white or fried rice, if you choose fried rice with your dinner you will pay $12.95 for fried rice!!! They only add soy sauce, onions and a couple of other things. They don't itemize your bill and you will not beaware of it when you pay. THEY DO NOT TELL YOU THE EXTRA COST FOR FRIED RICE SO BEWARE!!! This place is a tourist trap. It is overpriced, way overpriced, and the food is mediocre at best!! This is local review from someone who has lived here for over 25 years!!
