My work planned an outing here today for lunch. I have been to a lot of Hibachi places and usually go for lunch to save money. When you walk into the restaurant it is really pretty. We were quickly seated and our order was taken as well. The salad was good but my green tea tasted like warm water. The... More

We recently visited Tsukusa with some friends. Our friend had never been to a Japanese steakhouse before. The chef was nice with a good sense of humor. The meal was delicious and not too costly. The service was just ok. The waitress should have come around more often to see if we needed refills on the drinks or needed anything... More

I've been here a number of times, always consistent quality, will definitely continue to return. If you are going to reserve a Hibachi table, they are pretty adamant that you arrive on time, which is reasonable so you don't hold up other parties.

This is one of the many hibachi restaurants in the area. This is the best one and even it has problems. First, the phone lady was a real monster about how they don't take late arrivals. The waitress knew what she was doing and was efficient. When the chef came, it was just very basic. This restaurant is just basic.... More

The maki is fresh and delicious! Every time I visit I have a new favorite, this time it's the Yellow Ferrari.

The food at Tsukasa is very good, although my daughter had an issue with her teriyaki chicken. The chef puts on a good show, but the show is always the same it seems. Given the cost (and I do think you get what you pay for here), it's not a place that you would go more than once a year.... More

We only go here on special occasions. Our most recent visit was to celebrate a birthday, so we had a table with 6 teen girls (plus parents and sibling). We had one more person than the table is made for, and they were totally good with accommodating all 9 at one table. Our chef was great with the group of... More
