Great food and a very frustrating Ensor staff. Try the Funny Lady sushi roll. It has spicy tuna and thinly sliced beet. It was really good. We had the filet medium and it was cooked perfectly. We did learn something new. The white bottle they put on the food is Saki. Never knew that before.

Big restaurant with good sushi and rolls. The service is nice and friendly but terribly slow. Overall experience isn't bad though.

There aren't many hibachi places near Boston, and ones that have great reviews. I came here with two friends recently on a Saturday night for 7 pm reservations. We were given a buzzer and told to wait downstairs in the bar area. When we went downstairs it was pretty crowded and there weren't open tables to sit at. There are a TON of BC college kids that go here, so be warned that it's crowded and loud. At 7:20 pm I went back upstairs to the hostess to make sure she knew that our group had all arrived, and she said it would be another 5-10 minutes as a group was finishing their drinks. At 7:40 pm I had just begun to utter the words of, "Ok, I'm getting pissed..." and then our buzzer went off.

Our hibachi chef was fun and entertaining. We did the $28 restaurant week menu. We had the sashimi appetizer with the filet mignon, shrimp, and scallop hibachi dinner. Everything was tasty for the price. Overall, as all hibachi places are, it's best to come with a big group to have fun in the loud and energetic atmosphere. I'm giving this a 3 star rating for the long wait despite having reservations, and the loud and nutty kids that go here!

Great start to visiting this restaurant. The gentleman up front was not ready for me coming to their restaurant at 12:15 pm because his staff was not there because of traffic. Sorry, but it is definitely my fault your staff cant be on time. The waitress was barely available and only came by to serve food and take plates away

The sashimi consisted of 2 white tuna, 2 salmon, and 2 tuna. The pieces were fresh and fairly cut.
The hidden dragon roll was very bland. The sauce was minimal and the papaya had no flavor. You will need to eat it with soy sauce to enjoy it.
The eel avocado roller was nothing special. Similar to other restaurants where the avocado piece was bigger than the eel.

We arrived on New Year's Eve and ordered a Hibachi chicken and steak. Althoiugh the foods look appealing, they were heavily salted and too much saunce was used. The foods were rather tasteless because of the amount of salt applied. We also felt rushed. We will not return.l
