This Otani has a Hibachi side and a regular restaurant side. You can order from either menu on both sides. If you want to see the Hibachi show--then sit on that side. Service is generally good on both sides and the food is good. Ask the waitresses what the recommend for the best sushi/sashimi--they often have specials.

Low light, good food, and all around awesome! The bubble tea is very good. Not sure if there is another place in this area that sells bubble tea.

Having lived in Tokyo for a number of years, we're always interested in trying a new place. We passed on the designer sushi for more traditional fare. The Oshinko appetizer was a generous portion and very good, the Katsudon above average, and he Shrimp Temura very good. Portions were generous, service was friendly and attentive, and although the interior could... More

Took my son for a birthday dinner. We were looking forward to a great night based on the word-of-mouth recommendations.When you walk in, there are fake rubber dishes plated to entice the appetite, which I found to be very tacky. The restrooms were very old and kind of dirty. We ordered sushi as an appetizer and Hibachi dinners. The sushi... More

I went here with some coworkers after work on a Friday night and we had a great experience. Our waiter was very interesting and everyone there made us feel welcome. In addition, they give plentiful portions and there are so many options to choose from.

The food was excellent and plentiful. Thanks, Ray for the show it could of taken your eyebrows off.. My mother & sister thoroughly enjoyed the Shabu shabu. Mom hadn't had it since 1988 when she went home to Osaka Japan. It was a memorable Mother's day dinner. Domo arigato!!

Good food but a slow kitchen make for consistent frustration--even when the restaurant is not crowded. If management could somehow lasso this Achilles heel, the restaurant would be so much better. Love the sesame beef and the shrimp tempora. Friends feast on the sushi.

We made a last-minute switch on dinner plans and stopped in, hoping that our meal would be as pleasant as one a few months earlier - we weren't disappointed. Our server was friendly, helpful in sorting out some menu choices and added to a very relaxed and worthwhile experience. Most satisfying were the sushi one of us ordered, the very... More

The food is always good & plentiful. Ray puts on a great show at the table. Well worth the drive from Elyria.
