We were celebrating my mom Birthday.
They never asked if there was a special occasion....Food Servings were smaller than expected. Also their white sauce is not the Best! Also 17% tip auto added was not one of my Fav.
Will not be returning!

Food here is always great. Service is decent, but can be slow. I’ve been here several times, and tonight was the first time they ever told me they have an “all you can eat” sushi option. I looked it over, but it’s way overpriced. It’s 34.95 per person, and considering Suki Hanna has all you can eat for 22.00 per person, and offers more; this isn’t a good deal at all.

We always enjoy this restaurant. It is close to our work and the staff is always friendly. Sometimes when they get backed up the service is slow, but the food is always good and we will definitely be back.

Because that area of Orlando is so busy, it’s very difficult to get a reservation for dinner with little notice. But being on vacation, everything is on a whim. We were able to get a reservation for 6, with only a 1 hour notice and tho we weren’t able to sit at the hibachi, we were sat down on time on the non-hibachi side. We all ordered various items because we’re foodies and the overall consensus was that the food was surprisingly pretty good. We say surprisingly because we thought it being in a touristy area, it was going to be same ol, same ol Japanese. Not so. The staff was very intuitive to our needs and overall, we enjoyed our experience. One thing we did not like at all....the water! However, they had cold bottled water, which saved the day. We will definitely be going there again but will certainly be prepared to save the rhetoric and just order bottled water

Service: I made a reservation online and when I arrived we were ignored for 10 minutes. I finally got the woman's attention and I told her I needed to check in for our reservation. She told me "we aren't doing reservations today" I asked her why I was able to make one online then and she said "well we aren't doing them" This woman was rude and clearly did not want to be at work. As a hostess you should be a bit more engaging and she just seemed miserable. I asked if we could sit at the table where you sat on the floor (We were with a business client from Ghana and she really wanted to sit there) When I asked the miserable woman if that was possible she said "not today" and turned around and walked away. At this point I was growing frustrated with her attitude. If she is so miserable at work she needs to find a new job. We finally sat and it took us a good 10-15 minutes to be greeted. Our server was extremely nice and I know she was busy so I had to cut her some slack.

Food: the food was delicious. Sushi was really fresh and I had no complaints in that area. The entrees we had were also very good.

The server ( I think his name was Chris from Georgia) was excellent and the chef Reynaldo had personality. I was confused about the tip bowl for the chef especially after 18% is already tack on the the bill fir the chef and server to split. We decided to leave an extra $10 and the chef took it and put it in his pocket and said that management usually keeps what is in the bowl. With that said unsure if he would share with the server and only had $3 left to give. Our tips were about the same price of the meal. The food was good and you get a lot for what you pay. Ordered a Scropion cocktail but it was poorly made. I didn't have the heart to yell the server because he was really giving great service. I wish I didn't run out of cash because he deserved more.

The restaurant was empty on a holiday weekend in one of the busiest travel destinations in the US. We were served our hibachi lunch instead of watching the chef prepare the food. The price was outrageous even using a Groupon ($26 per person) including a $14 tip that was added to the bill. It wasn't mentioned anywhere that the show was not available. The food was not great, cooked really fast and it tasted over cooked. The server was great but there were several people just standing around doing nothing and we would not go back.

We had a reservation for 6:30 and didn't get seated until a little after seven. The food was good yet protein portions very small compared to others that sat at our hibachi table.

Disappointed as we did not have the full hibachi experience as it was not available even though I booked ahead of time. Food came out al at once felt like they were trying to get rid of us quickly. Kids excited about seeing the flaming onion tower. Wouldn't go again.

Order was wrong so when chef received food to cook it was incorrect portions. Hibachi chef kept asking customers what they ordered . Seems like this messed up his routine and the food preparation was delayed. Timing of food prep was totally off. Very disappointed

This restaurant was way over priced for the food and service. I have had way better experience at other Hibachi restaurants for a better price. The waitress never refilled my drinks, she never pick up my salad or soup bowl so the table was always crowded, the rice wasn't that good. It was "okay" but not a place worth while to go back to and eat and spend that kind of money.

Chef (performer) was a little thin on entertainment value. The food was tasty and ambiance was eclectic with a mix of traditional Japanese art pix and Pokémon posters adorning most of the walls. These places tend to be a little on the pricey side cause your also paying for the experience. Groupon made it reasonable.

The restaurant is unique in that it offers regular seating, hibachi seating, and there are tables with grills as well as Japanese kneeling tables. Food was excellent, but ambiance noisy and a bit loud. I recommend for family dining, good value, service was great when the server was around. We had to keep waiting for our server and just resorted to asking another server to call ours to the table. I think they may have been understaffed that day, it was a holiday. I'd be willing to return and give it another try.

 (Orlando)·Dined on March 11, 2017

So my husband and myself were visiting Orlando, Florida. We wanted some place to go have our 2 year anniversary dinner. I searched through Groupon to see what deals were out there to try something new in Orlando. We see the coupon for this restaurant and decide we want to try it cause it look like it would be fun. So I place a reservation for our 2 year anniversary and special instruct this on the reservation. We arrive to the restaurant and maybe waited 10 mins to be seated which I was ok with cause we were a few mins late. It was a nice little restaurant had a few nice features to offer. Now, here is the kicker to the situation of the night and I still made the best of it but here we go. So as I am waiting to be sat. An older lady is using a black linen and windex to clean the tables, she should have been using sanitizing water on the tables where people eat. Then I took the waiteress more than 20 minutes to get our drink order. We finally get our drinks and place our order. We spend a total 2 hours and 45 mins in the restaurant. The only really decent part was the chef who cooked our food his name started with an N. oh and never offered us desert for our anniversary and our first time in the location. So it was very mixed emotions but since I'm a waitress myself I try to give benefit of the doubt. But this was all over the place. Even as I watch other guest try to be assisted they are confused on what to do cause the staff is confused themselves.

The hostess was not the friendliest person, apparently having a bad day. Chef seemed new not the usually entertaining job. Food good but not great. Seating too close, had elbow hitting me and my plate all evening. Restaurant not the cleanest, obvious poor standards and management. Grill not as clean as other Japanese restaurant standards, floors dirty, the worst was the men's restroom. Don't think it was cleaned for a while, health department??? We will not return.

This place is weird.... more of a fusion menu. Anyway this has to be the worst Sushi I have had in a while...I mean just gross. Too much rice, chunks of fish, warm ....ugh just gross. Tried tuna. Salmon, veggie, all just not fresh. Also tried the seared tuna app, tasted like kerosene...gross . For my main I had the steak, the waygu one....wow...it was like a thin fatty frozen burger patty that again tasted like kerosene from there grill. This place was awful and we through most of it out...I will say the service was good though, nice guy.
