    Nice new clean restaurant. Always like Kobe steak house and of course the Yummy Yummy sauce. I only wish the venting system took out the smoke from the cooking because as the night went on I could see a haze of smoke in the air above all cooking areas/tables.

    My family of four dined here for dinner. The customer service overall was excellent.The food was hot and delicious. We 4 ordered combo plates with the upgraded chicken fried rice and 2 cocktails. The only issue I had was the wall booth seating we were forced into against the hibachi table instead of chairs. It would have been pertinent to know that this was a forced seating option that i would have declined due to health complications within my family sitting with me. Overall an excellent restaurant but an undesirable location within the restaurant. I would return if I am not forced to sit here again.

    Having never been we don’t know we would be seated at a long work station with 8 people who knew each other. Noise level made it hard to carry on a conversation with the person next to you. Food was good albeit very salty. It was very busy so obviously many people like it better than we did.

    Food was great as always. The service was horrible and our sushi never made it to the table. The fact you pay a mandatory 18% gratuity just made it a lot worse

    The food was only ok. Not much flavor. Felt like I needed to eat it to not waste money. The chef was entertaining, but the dinner out was too expensive for food that was not very good.

    The food was fantastic however the wait time for food was a little excessive and we had a child with us so even though he was being well behaved even we were getting hangry
