Have been here on several occasions, coming with large groups and even just 2 of us. The best time to come in my opinion to help with a budget is after 8pm. Then they have a dinner special 2 for $25. Great food and love...More

This place is the best. Never disappoints! Lobster sauce galore and the cooks are pleasant. The manager sings so well if it's your birthday. Beautiful voice. The food is amazing.

Yes, it is a little pricey but my kids loved it after a long rainy day at the softball tournament. My son enjoyed being able to help cook our food. The food was amazing and my kids are begging to make the 4 hour drive...More

We occasionally stop here for family birthday meals. The food is overpriced but the entertainment is fun. They do have occasional coupons to help alleviate the high cost of the meals.

A rather uncomfortable experience. The cooks put up a cheap show, trying to engage the audience by throwing food? Missing "targets" into people's face... Really? Squeezing Sake out of the cooking bottles into people's mouth like a cheap Mexican restaurant at some cheap spring break...More

Had dinner here, and you should have reservations, however I'm not sure why. The food was bland and the lace was overall dirty. There was grease everywhere and my legs stuck to the undersurface of the tables because of grease. Likewise the carpet was pulled...More

Tucked away in a newer, but less-popular retail center in northwest Rochester, you'll find Jenpachi Japanese Steakhouse. It seems more of a local establishment than chain, and the simple, (some would say "dated") decore is more simply stated than larger, flashier, "canned" atmosphere of a...More
