My only complaint is they don't make pork fried rice. Odd thing is the one in Corbin is terrible. The one here is great.

I stopped by this restaurant while coming back home. I was hoping for a hibachi grill experience but didn't see it. Yet the service and food was excellent. We got our food extremely quickly. The spicy California roll was awesome!
