The food was great, Our cook was absolutely amazing & entertaining .. but we made a Reservation through OpenTable.com and it was not honored. Just be aware that if you make a reservation through Open Table's website for House of Japan, it's actually more of a "Call Ahead Seating". (There's a difference!) When we arrived for our 7pm Reservation, we... More

Had a good meal here. I ate the steak and shrimp. Service was ok and we had a solid chef. You won't leave hungry. The prices are normal for a hibachi grill. I've ate at a handful of restaurants in the vicinity and this has been the best meal so far.

I always enjoy this restaurant, it is fun to watch (chef?) cook food right in front of you. It is live entertainment.

They were able to accommodate our large family group out for a birthday dinner. They have live koi in the entry and beautiful gardening our front. We ate hibachi style. The food was fresh, delicious and a very large serving.

Stopped in for sushi for lunch on a Friday about noon. I’ve been coming here for a loooong time as I think “Jimmy” the sushi chef makes the absolute best in Columbus! Pictured are the greens salad and the spicy crab salad that I have made extra spicy. The melt-in-your-mouth salmon and equally tender spicy tuna roll. Absolutely wonderful sushi.... More

We took our family to the House of Japan for my daughters birthday. It was a great time for the whole family and the food was delicious. I have children that are 7, 10, 14, and 17 years old. All of them were entertained by the chef. The food was very good. The only down side was the price. For... More

Considering the amount of Hibachi restaurants out there my expectations weren't very high. The theme and theatrics are pretty much the same but the food is way above your typical Hibachi. The filet and scallops were cooked perfectly to order and were very flavorful. Skip the chains and come here. It doesn't disappoint!

This restaurant is always a great option for lunch or dinners. Sit with a gathering of friends and enjoy the show as the chef prepares the great food. The wait can be long so be sure to call ahead or be willing to wait. It's very worth the wait!

My entire family loves House of Japan. I think we've tried pretty much all the other Japanese steakhouses in Columbus, and House of Japan is, by far, our favorite. Meals will vary some by chef, but they're all good (Jon is the best). This is my wife's favorite place for fried rice (and hibachi chicken). Especially when they leave it... More
