Great food, friendly environment. Their beef tongue is a must try! I also really enjoyed their Korean tofu bowl and garlic noodles. Like any asian restaurant, it can be a little loud. Lunch is very affordably prices, so if you're free on weekdays, highly recommended! Make sure to make a reservation.

This used to be my favorite restaurant to eat until they changed the menu basically took away all the meat I used to eat from the buffet menu

Busy somewhat chaotic Brookline Japanese bbq restaurant. Menu is extensive with many different options in meats and seafood. Value menus can be appealing because of the price point, but the volume of food in the value menu can be somewhat overwhelming. I'd recommend instead making individual choices from the menu and buying the quantity of food that works for yourself and guests. The filet mignon, short ribs and salmon are excellent. Other meats can be hit or miss. Tongue is good but dries out quickly on bbq. Stick with salad and miso soup for appetizers. Other appetizers not very good. The calamari was particularly overcook and tasteless (according to my 11 year old and he eats a lot of calamari!!). Desert of smores and chocolate lava cake/ice cream are great, if you have the room. Recommend wearing clothes you plan to wash at home and not expensive suits or designer wear; the bbq smoke at your table and within the restaurant is pretty strong and you leave smelling like the restaurant. Wait staff excellent and very attentive.

So much fun. It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it. It is such a fun experience to cook your food and everything was delicious. Service was great and the ambiance was fun. I would definitely go back!
