We ate at the express counter where they servec hibachi and sushis and ended up being VERY disappointed. First of all, we ordered 3 sushi rolls and it took 20 minutes to get served (remember, this is the Express counter), way too long for such an order, especially from a supposedly express counter. On to the sushis themselves… they were... More

Chef very kind, kid-friendly. Awesome hibachi tricks. Great restaurant inside atmosphere. Recommended as one of the only Hibachi restaurants and Syracuse, and is delicious.

I've been here a couple times over the past few years when I've come to town. The food is good. And the restaurant staff is very friendly. Highly recommend the filet and shrimp!

Our waitress was extremely attentive and our cook was very entertaining and he really involved my son while he was cooking. The food was terrific and there was a lot of food for a lunch portion. If we lived... More

We ate here after a day of attractions at Destiny USA and the fun continued! Our server was excellent and entertaining. Our tweens enjoyed the "show" the hibachi chefs put on and actually put their phones away for dinner!!

After walking around the mall you can build quite an appetite. Nicely decorated restaurant near the Carousel, friendly front desk and bartender. Above average food, served quickly and steaming hot. Great for Sushi, or Hibachi, or Ala Carte.

We went there Saturday night for a quick dinner. We walked in and the 3 of us were quickly seated. Our waiter Evan quickly came to our table and took our drink orders. When he returned we asked him a few questions about some of the sushi rolls. He was knowledgeable about them and we ordered a Insanity Roll to... More

We went on Easter Sunday and couldn't be more pleased. Fast service, great atmosphere, and the food was delicious. We got a few drinks, an order of edamame, and three sushi rolls (Dynamite, King Kong, and Empire). We also shared some fried ice cream. Everything was delicious. We can't wait to go back!
