Good selection was amazing. Very good quality meat and veggies at an affordable price. Great get together experience for dates and group of friends. Kobe beef prices are very reasonable.

The outdoor was ok but the restroom was too dirty. How can a restaurant have good food and not maintain their restroom.

Good was delicious. Would haves liked to have salt and pepper in sesame oil for dipping too. Smokey, as it took a long while before fan turned on but it was okay because I liked it more quiet

We sat outdoors under the canopy in the parking lot, therefore ambiance was ok. Food was delicious and it is always fun to full grill your food at the table. All the ingredients were fresh. The marinades were tasty but not overly seasoned. The kimchi appetizer was delicious also. The only negative was the portions were quite small. Even the white rice, which cost $3 per bowl came in extremely small portions.

It is very tasty authentic Japanese BBQ. The place has such a good vibe, great the staff members let you feel Japanese “omotenashi”, which is famous for being professional, polite and so caring. We think this place is great for friends gathering, family’s gatherings, good for bringing kids, and even for business dinner ( when you don’t want to make it too formal but guaranteed tasty and good vibe), in short this place is superb for all the occasions.

We found this gem when we were on our way to the airport. It’s the best bbq we’ve tried so far and very good service. I cant remember our servers name but we were there 2/20/21 at 2pm and she was the best and very attentive. We got the course meal for 2 and food was amazing! I would definitely recommend this place.
