Typical hibachi menu with sushi, but with added entertainment of music sing-a-longs. Our chef actually got hot oil in his face & had to step away. They quickly sent someone else to take over, & our original chef came out to say he was ok. Food was good. Kid activities for Easter - bunny, face painting, balloon animals. Shuttle to... More

First time here and we ordered drinks and appetizers. OMG. Off the charts, excellent mango martini, skewered steak, scallops wrapped in bacon and lo mein noodles. Service fantastic, atmosphere is exquisite, prices are reasonable. Food to die for. Can't ask for anything else. Bravo, Desaki. Can't wait to come back.

While staying in the Poconos, we decided to leave our hotel one night and eat "out". We decided to go to Desaki after seeing so many ads and billboards for this place and I am so glad we did. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted and the employees were really nice. The atmosphere and decor is cool... More

The hibachi is fun and a different experience from the mundane. However, the food is exorbitantly priced and the portions do not justify the high prices.

The sushi was terrible and the service was awful! The sushi tasted exactly like the pre-packaged sushi you would pick up from a grocery store. Not fresh at all. You can tell by the hardness of the rice. We were very disappointed, especially since it wasn't cheap sushi. Our waiter brought us our sushi and didn't check back with us... More

Our service was good. This restaurant definitely does some major business. They definitely try to optimize their chefs time, but that is certainly to be expected. Most of our party had the hibachi, and it was pretty good. Minor complaint thst we weren't offered yum yum sauce until the meal was almost over. Nigiri tuna was excellent. With Benihana as... More

We really did not enjoy this hibachi restaurant. There are so many people that you really feel that you are just a number. They are very focused on time and speed- get you in and get you out. The prices are steep as they charge you for things that would be free at other restaurants. They are just focused on... More
