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.

Honestly food is always great, just the service was not so great this second time there. She seemed somewhat clueless and not uber attentive. Last time I was there the guy was SUPER helpful, guided us through the selections on the menu that were good for me and my allergies and made it easy for my boyfriend to still enjoy his food as well (he does not have allergies). It is crazy times just wish she was more attentive and helpful. Would still come back for the food though.

Good quality meat for BBQ, you don't a lot but it's worth what you pay for. Outside seating in parking lot. Not much ambiance but we weren't expecting any either. It was good to get out and enjoy dinner with friends. Garlic Fried rice is a must have!

Seated at 9:45 on Sat night, and was rushed to finish. They started clearing the tables and basically shut the restaurant down. We were left with 1 more table and it was only like 10:40... I understand the challenge of Covid, but if they want to close early they shouldn’t accept late reservations. It’s not like a cheap place after all. Just saying.

The food was good.. we sat outside due to covid so they had portable burners that you could take outside. I picked meat that was pretty thin because it’s easier to cook and chew. It wasn’t crowded so we didn’t have to wait which was nice. The garlic fried rice is very good and tastes really authentic. I also really liked the spicy beef soup.

This place is absolutely delicious. Nothing more to say about the food beyond that. We ordered the US Kobe fixed menu and wasn't disappointed. For the ice cream at the end of the meal, the choices were Vanilla, Green Tea, or Lychee. Lychee was totally the winner.

For those concerned about eating out after the lockdown mess. This is the first restaurant we went to after the covid-19 lockdown. They took precautions to ensure there was spacing between people dining. I saw they cleaned up the table thoroughly after a group of people left. Didn't really have any concerns for that.

Would definitely recommend this place for some delicious eats.
