Tried somewhere new and was not disappointed. We went to the Hibachi side of the place and had a couple of combinations. The chef cooked mine exactly as I asked and that made me very happy. It was very good and watching him cook was...More

Good place to get Japanese food. Didn't try the sushi, we had hibachi but not at the grill. Didn't care to see the show. The filet and lobster hibachi came with a whole grilled lobster! Nice touch. I will go back to try the sushi.
