    The gyoza and godzilla roll were delicious! The drinks were very good, we had the margarita and a citrus martini. The server took a good 10 minutes to come over but was attentive the rest of the time. We will be back.

    If you’re looking for flavor or seasoning, do not come here. It was very much a disappointment in comparison to other Hibachi restaurants I’ve been to. We waited a long time to be seated and for service, even though we had a reservation. I would not recommend this place.

    The dishes on the table were dirty so we asked the waitress for new plates. A bus person returned with more dirty dishes and threw them on the table in front of us making an extremely loud noise to the point where I the plates were going to break. The waitress eventually brought new plates. The cook was very nice but very slow, uncoordinated, added way too much salt and soy sauce to our food. It was my son's 18th birthday so at the end of the meal they brought out a half frozen disgusting chocolate cake with previously frozen, mush strawberries. He took one bite and left it the rest. For $359 it was a total waste of money and I'll never go back.

    The food was good as always. The seating, service were both not great. The wait staff gave us two glasses of water for 4 people. Plates weren’t cleared on time. Small annoyances but not the best experience.

    We went to KiKu to celebrate father's day. Our kids (3 & 5) loved their first teppanyaki experience! The service was solid and the chef put on a great show. The prime rib was excellent and the fried rice on the flat top is delicious. I've had better vegetables and shrimp, but they were still good. A wine list with a cab from St. Supery is definitely a plus. We'll probably be back soon.

    Great sushi! Very good food, pretty much the same as a typical hibachi grill. Same show as all of them. The sushi and cuts of meat were very good!

    Ordered chicken and steak entree, calamari entree, and shrimp entree; the chicken was dry amd the sauce was added to the chicken too soon so it scorched. The calamari was added to the grill first thing and taken off last leading to a rubbery and tough texture. Both these entrees were ordered with golden sauce/egg yolk and you would have thought we just asked for a half cup of vegetable oil be poured onto the meal it was also added first to the grill so it was mostly curdled and unpleasant. Typical calamari steak preparation is a quick searing on each side maybe 1 to 2 minutes. Left to sit on the grill for probably a full 15 minutes. Like chewing through a rubber band. Very disappointing.

    We’ve enjoyed Kiku for years, but this is our first visit since 2020. Things are so different, and not for the better. Service was rushed and inexperienced. The meal was served wildly out of order. Prices are way up and you now choose between soup or salad, both are not included. It’s no longer a special place to dine. It’s lost all its magic.

    We had an older chef not much fun, when ordering steak they asked how we would like it cooked, but chef cooked it all well done and it meat was tough. The rest of the food was good. Bathrooms were dirty. It was my daughters birthday which I mentioned on open table reservation and it was never acknowledged.

    I frequently take my kids here and the food is always solid. However, they eliminated the kids meals for whatever reason. I had to shell out $41 for my 9 year old to eat. Sadly, I won’t be back. Lots of choices in the area that are still kid-friendly. Even my 9 year-old said, “Dad, aren’t they going to lose business not having a kid’s meal?” I told him, “Yes. Ours.”

    Waiter was unhelpful. Didn't ask any of us if it was our first time there (which it was) and then just asked if we were ready to order. I didn't know how to order the hibachi table service walking in. Also he never seemed to return to fill waters or to check in on us. Need to improve service at these prices.

    Food was okay but not great. Timing of food prep was slow and felt like i was waiting for next thing but food on plate was getting cold. All of us felt sick to our stomach not long after eating. Not a great value for the cost.

    Pretty loud in there. Breading on scallops unnecessary. Yum yum sauce too thin. Clear soup delicious. Overall, hibachi dinner just lacked flavor. Service was slow for a hibachi restaurant. But great experience and service for a party and dessert was delicious. Hibachi chef was great and made sure everyone had everything they needed except cooking the steak as rare as a guest wanted it.
