Dining companion was ga-ga over this place so we went in. Extremely limited and poor selection of beer. Sushi rolls were good. Meals were fairly bland, as was the service. op that all off with hefty prices. No reason to come back.

The whole vibe of this place is cool. The fish swimming under the floor, the huge Buddah sitting under the stars, and delicious food, amazing drinks...yep....it's all here and not overly priced. Definitely worth it. Get the Scorpion Bowl. For 1 or 2 or more.

Food is delicious, and the chefs even put on a show while cooking your food on a flat top grill. Try the mandarin steak.. They also have great appetizers..

This place once was a go-to for hibachi, not anymore. Tables/seats are dirty covered in some kind of film. And once you get a waitress you probably won't see her again. Horrible service. Food is not that appetizing anymore either... Must have fallen into new...More

Since 2013 we have enjoyed this establishment. We have tried; Sushi, Hibachi and their Chinese options all had been good in the past. That being said we recently ordered take-out from their Chinese menu. Cannot say anything positive. The entrees were from bland, to downright...More
