The value is decent, you get a bowl of soup and a small salad to start when ordering an entree. Then, a shrimp and vegetable appetizer, and your meat is the final portion. Also includes a side of rice. You can get fried rice (which is excellent) for a slight upcharge. Drinks are great. It's a fun time.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ExperienceFun and interesting. Table chefs are entertaining.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI was meeting 2 of my girlfriendsI was meeting 2 of my girlfriends and it would have been nicer to sit at our own table instead being paired with a family. It would have made us more comfortable talking, but I do understand that it was done due to timing/staffing.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best Japanese steakOne of the best Japanese steak houses in the Chicago area. Very good sushi at a reasonable price. Chicken and shrimp combo for two was excellent. It's funny how most of the chefs are Hispanic with Japanese names.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
