I have had better hibachi. The restaurant itself was outdated, not very nice. The hibachi portion was lacking in the show. Food was just okay. Overall, would not recommend.

People and service are great here; always good for a group. The food however was way over salted this time, and therefore barely edible.

The service is very subpar. It takes forever to get a request in so make sure you talk to the server every chance they come by. The filet mignon is the best filet I’ve had at any hibachi in the United States, do not get the regular steak I promise you. The drinks are bit over priced. Overall I would literally come back for that steak.

They crowd too many people around the table, the service is hurried and often times sloppy! Food over cooked, they really push the liquor, they were seriously overwhelmed-overbooked-understaffed the night we were there !!

This is the best hibachi in Atlanta, by far! I love the authentic vibe and seating where shoes as re required to be removed, it really makes the place that much more fun!
