Waited nearly two hours for 3 entrées and 2 sushies. Poor service waited nearly fifteen minutes to order. To say never be back.

Always a great experience, Ivy the owner, has a wonderful staff and a sushi chef second to none, I recommend the tuna martini, and the jalapeño yellowtail.

If you ever leave Japanica and you're still hungry, something is wrong. You get so much food for your money and their special is killer. Monday - Wednesday you can get their Steak/Chicken/Shrimp Hibatchi Combo for $15.95 which includes soup, rice, noodles, and vegetables in that price. They also have BOGO sushi rolls and other sushi specials.

My wife and I were visiting from out of town and decided at the last min to eat Japanese. We quickly searched for a restaurant near us and this seemed to be rated good. We arrived at 8:20pm and were the only 2 people in the restaurant. That should have been a clue! I ordered a combo and my wife... More

We arrived at 7:00 with 8 people to eat in the Habachi area. Very attentive and service was great. Chef prepared food as specified with the usual flair that you see in these restaurants. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dinner and atmosphere.

They have the freshest sushi in Tallahassee, and all of their entrees are delicious and the Hibachi chefs are very fun and entertaining. But what sets Japanica apart is their special's menu - featuring traditional, Chinese cuisine. You may have to ask them to describe the meals that are available, as the special menu is not always in English -... More

This is my go to restaurant. I have eaten at all the hibachi restaurants in Tallahassee and Japanica, without a doubt, is the best. Their food is always fresh and whether you choose habatchi,sushi or a noodle dish, you will find the food full of flavor. Try the soba or udon with chicken. It's just fantastic and I don't often...

There were ten of us for lunch on a Friday and they sat us immediately and our food came out fast and hot. The food is not greasy is what I like most!

Eaten here 2 times at the Hibachi Grill. Nothing spectacular but what you would expect. The chef was very entertaining and engaging especially with the little girl at the table.

We love coming here or ordering takeout whenever we have a craving for Asian food. Their Hibachi meals are SO flavorful and you get sooo much for the price -- well worth it. Also their sushi/sashimi is delicious as well.
