    Scorpion bowl, mai tai, filet and seafood cooked in front of you, eating with friends, doesn't get better than that.

    They call it Japanese Shabu Shabu, but all the sides and even majority of the soup bases were Chinese ingredients or flavors. It was pretty good and reminded me of the hot pots we get in Hong Kong, but pricey. We did a split of Szechuan and Miso. Would have loved to seen whole fish available for hot pot, where the filets are on the side and fish carcass goes into the broth. My only complaint is that they have a side order of exotic mushrooms, but what we got was handful of enoki, few slices of king oyster and a bunch of white regular button mushrooms. I don't consider button mushrooms exotic. Homemade fish paste and chicken and vegetable dumplings were really good though.

    Well, they didn't get our order correct. When I told the server, they wanted to know if I wanted my food cooked in the back and the reason we came to this restaurant was so the food could be cooked in front of us. ????? Then it wasn't favored or had any taste to it what so ever.... not the greatest experience.....

    This was an entertaining place to take the kids for dinner because they prep the food in front of you. The down side is that the cooking surface gives off a ton of heat so it was incredibly warm. The food was fine but nothing to write home about. This is clearly a place to go for entertainment and not for the outstanding food. The service was good and the chef was engaging.

    Food moderately good but show is fun. Interesting to go once, but we would not return unless to take grandchildren. Show is fun but very difficult to talk with friends because of table arrangement and noise level.

    This was our first time at this new restaurant. I do feel it is the best compared to other similar hibachi restaurants. The soup was okay, the salad had a nice dressing. Both dipping sauces were very good. I won't return to a similar place in Brookline as one of their sauces is awful. My spouse loves hibachi and that is why we went for Father's Day. Although the food was tasty, my steak was not cooked as requested, and I am not thrilled with the amounts of margarine that is used.However, I would certainly choose this restaurant for hibachi cooking.

    It is noisy because of the type of restaurant. I will been several times and I enjoy this type of food - hibachi style. Our dining companions did not like that food was delivered at inconsistent times. The beef was finished before the chicken was grilled.

    We ordered hot pot, it took them more than 20 minutes to bring the food. The waitress did not come back to check if we need anything till another 20 minutes later. We waited for 20 minutes to ask for stuff. Then she was disappeared again. The broth was almost empty. I've to many hit pot places, but this was the first time that I experience this bad service. It's a hot pot place and you let the broth ran out, almost burn. I am not mad at the waitress, I blame the owner who is too cheap to hire not enough people for such a big restaurant. Restaurent has to have a good food and good customer service, but they are lack of them.

    I had a very enjoyable family dinner. We are all big fans of Shabu Shabu and regular patrons of Shabu zen in Brighton. Tokyo steakhouse is similar but more pricey. The food and service was very good. I will return to try their hibachi grill.

    At times, the staff was too attentive (they didn't even wait for us to sit down before asking us to order drinks) and other times when we wanted them to explain the shabu and how best to order, they were dismissive and offered no commentary. This is my second time there. I had hibatchi last time and the staff were not prepared to answer questions about certain food ingredients (one friend is on a gluten-free diet). The place is farely new so I hope they are just working out the kinks.
