Went to celebrate an event with my sister-in-law and family. We had a whole tepan table. Worst service ever. Tepan chef was good but the rest was terrible. Ordered sushi while everyone else ordered tepan. Cancelled my sushi after everyone else eating was already done and I still didn't have my sushi. They actually brought our soup and side salad...

We arrived just as they opened so we had the place to ourselves. This is NOT fast food....it is lovingly prepared and has a beautiful presentation. My kids each ordered a bento box while I ordered a spicy tuna roll. There was more than enough food for all three of us - we even took some home! I can only... More

My grandson loves to go to teppanyaki. We usually go to Osaka by Superstition Springs mall, but they were booked so we thought we would try Ah-So. The service was good and all the staff were very friendly. The food was your normal teppanyaki fare-very good. There was a couple things though that I was disappointed about that makes me... More

Great sushi and the homemade salad dressing is amazing. The teriyaki chicken was not so great however the fried rice was amazing.

Great teppanyaki and what some have figured out, great sushi as well. The chefs are great, funny, entertaining and yes they can play with fir unlike those other guys! LOL. The fried rice is awesome, can't say enough good things about this place. The only knock is sometimes it can get a little warm, I am good! :)

I've wanted to come here for years and finally got around to it. I didn't realize it is a Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki restaurant. For a Saturday early evening the tables were packed and the smell was lovely walking in the doors. We didn't need anything fancy so when opted for Sushi. We were the only ones. Which is nice...

The place was not packed but seemed busy enough for a Saturday night. Absolutely everything took forever. We had to request our salads and soups after a long wait. After an hour or so when everyone finished their meals, my mom had to cancel her sushi order because it still hadn't been filled although patrons that arrived at least 30-45... More

We went for New Year's eve family meal celebration and the food was okay but did not blow us away. Teppanyaki was decent. The sushi was good for the most part.
