Used to eating good Japanese food, I found this great place in Ames, Iowa. Spectacular Sushi and Sashimi combination! Dish decoration, quality of food (very fresh), and flavor were awesome. Fast and courteous service!

This is the third time that we have dinner at Fuji. We were never disappointed by their rolls and have tried several on the menu. The ingredients are fresh and tasty. The staff is also helpful and friendly.

We went for dinner and experienced the grill, our service was excellent, food was good, plentiful, and since we were celebrating birthdays, they were treated to cupcakes and servers playing instruments and singing, such fun. Wednesdays have a special, buy one get one half off.

My daughter is a senior at ISU and we visit this restaurant every time we come to Ames. She also dines here regularly during the school year. I can't speak for the hibachi side of things, but the sushi is good, especially for in the middle of midwest. Decor and service are just average. On my most recent visit, however,... More

Okay, Japanese food is among our top favorite cuisines. Generously speaking, this is a Japanese-style restaurant that offers an entertaining hibachi grill. Lots of different sushi rolls are available, but none of these are prepared in the exacting manner nor with the quality ingredients and flavor that you would find in an authentic (i.e., real) Japanese restaurant. The sushi rice... More

Good food, a little noisy. Service was fair, felt a little overlooked as a single diner. Two for one cocktails were a nice surprise.

I've enjoyed going to Fuji Steakhouse for a few years now, and the service is always good. I would give them 5 stars but the shrimp leaves a little something to be desired...
