My only negative is as soon as we walked in at 5:00 to an empty restaurant the carpet smells old. We were the first couple of early diners, when we left the dining room was mostly filled . The only smell then was the wonderful grilled food.

The chef was not very engaging and seemed disinterested. Expected much more given the price point. There are better choices out there for price/value.

Although, I could tell that the chef was getting a bit tired towards the end. Not his fault. Also, beware of the photographers. “Complimentary” photo is merely a trap because they sell you photos at the end of your meal. It felt awkward just taking the complimentary photo and felt pressured by the photographer to buy the photos. Also, they didn’t let me check to make sure I was ready to take the photo in the first place. Had I been able to take a more desirable photo, I probably would have felt more comfortable buying the photo(s). The food still came out amazing. House was packed, but they checked vaccine cards so that’s as safe as things can be. I think I found a new pre-Christmas tradition. Mahalo Tanaka and Mahalo OpenTable for the easy reservation process.

Not much taste to the food which I guess is why they provide you with the dipping sauces to use. Great if you're on a bland diet, not so much if you are looking for flavor. Chef was excellent, definitely put on a great performance. Service could have been better as they never came by to refill water (we had to ask a couple of times). Manager did stop by to say hello and provided us with some pens, guess that was the holiday giveaway for the night. With all of that being said, if you've never been to this restaurant and are looking for a great "show" then this is the place.
