My husband and I went with our son & his soon to be bride. We had a wonderful time. The food was very good! We had Habachi (cooked) steak/shrimp & chicken. We had a great soup, salad + our main meal. The servers were very nice & made sure we had drinks. The "show" was so fun to watch. We... More

Having been here now a few times with various friends, I now feel the experience is about the show. The food and atmosphere is good, however their sushi is great so I'd rather sit there and eat sushi and drink. Please give this review a helpful vote if you found the review or pictures helpful.

We were amazed with the variety and quality of food provided. Service was quick, food was good, and price was good for the portion and quality you get. The only thing was that we were not seated by the hibachi tables, but it was very noisy hearing all the hibachi noises.

I got the Maki A combo which has a cali roll, salmon roll and tuna roll with a choice of soup OR salad. My boyfriend got the spicy Maki combo. His rolls were chopped up fish mixed with the spicy mixture. The texture was not great and he couldn't finish it. Mine were alright, not great. The rolls are 6... More

Six of us ate at one of the Hibachi Grills. Very quick, efficient service. Drinks, soup, and salads came quickly. The Hibachi chef was very entertaining and the food was fresh and flavorful. A great way for a group to go out to eat and have a great time. Not cheap, but will please. We have also previously eaten in... More

The food was great. Maybe a little overprice for what you get. You pay for the food show as much as anything else. It's still better than any of the crappy Asian buffets that overpopulate the area.

I went with my younger brother as a treat. Prices are high up there- even during lunch. Decor is interesting. Our waitress was really nice. They don't over serve (if you're a big eater you'll need to order more than just the hibachi). Sushi was well made.
