    Really good yakiniku! I lived in Japan for years and this is easily as good…I guess it makes sense, the company is from Japan.

    Took clients here for a closing dinner and we chose the Toraji "Experience". Food and service was fantastic, everyone enjoyed the meal. Really appreciate their accommodations for our dietary restrictions.

    Horrible experience. The food was alright. The service for that kind of price is horrible. Would not go back and would not recommend to anyone.
