I went here with my wife, son, and daughter-in-law. We all had the hibachi supper. I had the steak, my wife and daughter-in-law had the chicken hibachi, and my son had the calamari hibachi. All were great, we shared and swapped with each other to try the different meats. I was especially impressed with the calamari. Our hibachi chef put on quite the show, and the service was excellent. Very friendly and professional staff. The absolute best Japanese restaurant I have ever eaten at. The prices were also very, very reasonable for the quality of food. I would eat there once a week if it wasn't 700 miles from where I live. In short, I can't say enough good about this restaurant.

Favorite place of all time for hibatchi style food. Yum yum sauce is the secret. I hope it never closes.

Great price with great service and great food. Try their yum yum sauce - it's addictive and really enhances the flavor of the food. Or, go in for lunch because the prices are cheaper (I regret not doing this more often).

The service is consistently top notch and it's my favorite place to eat in Libertyville.

It's been a while since we've eaten there -- but we really like the owners -- they are good people, they work so hard to maintain the quality of the food and the service. I find that the prices are a bit high, and we don't always like to share a table with strangers, but every time we've we've eaten there, the food has been good. We enjoy the cooks -- who cook the food right at the table. When we are the only people at the table, we'll request that he "spare" us the "show" of the fire and smoke spewing onion rings, etc -- just cook the food and we'll enjoy it.
