Went to one in Toronto and New York City. Good services and food. This one is not up to the level of the others. Food is mediocre. Service is minimal. Not enjoyable in any standard.

No more all you can eat, but the grilled meats were still delicious. The octopus in the takoyaki was tough but it still tasted good. Overall could have done with less salt, but the rice helped with that.

Food was great! Service was terrible. Waiter was new and pretty much knew how to do nothing. Our appetizers took 20-25 mins to come out. Then our main course came out 1-2 items at a time. Things were so unorganized, we ate things separately. It was bad. But again, the food was amazing!

The person who greeted and sat us was very kind and outgoing. I’m assuming he was the manager or owner. The food was amazing and our drinks were delicious. Was very quiet and relaxing until a bigger party was sat near us but overall a very good experience.

Food was great. I really enjoy the meat for the BBQ. The only thing I can point out is the ice cream dessert was too forzen.
I will definitely go back.

I walked in the door and was immediately greeted to be seated as well as some water. The appetizers were delicious as were the drinks. I loved the fire in the middle to cook the meats the instructions were clear and perfect. It’s like cooking at home but at a restaurant such a fun experience. The waiter was nice and knowledgeable on a lot of the menu items. Which made my indecisive self finally decide on a great option. I will definitely be back to enjoy again.
