After 20 years this is a place that once housed the only sushi hibachi place in AR. It's been almost 6 years since I've been to this place and I'm sad to check in with a poor rating to what was once the best Japanese restaurant in Little Rock. Rarely do we sit around the hibachi table as we have... More

The food was fun to watch being prepared and good. Rice was okay, but not best ever eaten. Tasty but could use more seasoning.

I've been going to this same location for 30 years. We have been to every Japanese restaurant you can think of within 500 miles. Hard to beat this place for the amount of food you get for the price and the outstanding flavor. Older decor and service not the greatest but the food more than makes up for it.

It's bad when it's raining and water is dripping through the roof onto a hibachi table.... But if you look at the carpets you will want to throw up... I would be surprised if the health department has been here in the last year. This place is a health hazard.

Although I'm from the area, it's probably been about 10 years or so since I have been here...but I will NEVER go back, and the only people who should go back, is the health inspector...because I have no idea how they are still up and running. We had a large group and they placed us in the back room, with... More

I do not like to give a one star but if you deserve it, you will get it. My experience here was THE worst I have EVER dealt with. First off, the room was very dark. We had a group of 8 and arrived about 730pm. Took awhile to order. Wait let me back up, the hostess/ waitress/ cashier was... More

Good food. Entertaining dining. Perfect for "pre-concert" at Verizon Arena with complimentary transportation to Verizon.

Great food and the staff were very interactive with my young children. We were seated promptly and the chef was out within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend this Steakhouse to everyone.

Yea, its pricey - but hey, they have seriously the best hibachi meals in all the land, at least in Arkansas for sure. At other places the house dressing is a little weird or the rice isn't up to par, the veggies aren't quite as good - but never this place. Always delicious. I do agree other places definitely "look"... More
