    We were not impressed with this restaurant, the food was OK nothing really special. The service and the ambiance was also OK. I have been to other Hibachi restaurants and by far this one was my least favorite.

    WORST RESTAURANT EVER!!!! I called to make a reservation and the man on the phone told me I didn’t need one and there would only be a 5-20 minute wait. When I arrived at the restaurant he told me I never called and that they were booked for the night. He then dismissed us and told us to leave because he had other people waiting behind us. I told him I spoke to him on the phone and he told me I didn’t and that I never called the restaurant. Flat out lied to my face. Horrible restaurant and horrible employees. So rude and could not have cared less about a customer. Would recommend anywhere else but here.

    Traveled far for this because they still advertised having Shabu Shahbu/hot pot offerings but they no longer offer it. Food was good, service and atmosphere was so-so.

    We used to loved this restaurant before Covid. This time when we were there a fire alarm went off. When we returned, our food was cold . They only heated 1 person’s meal in our party. The salads were three pieces of lettuce and a cucumber. The hot tea was cold and they no longer serve it in a pot. The chef that made our food at the table did not add enough soy sauce. I ordered steak and shrimp. The person who took our order wrote down steak and chicken. When I tried to explain they brought me 4 shrimp. The cold dinner cost us over $90 and we didn’t order any liquor. Very disappointing.

    We left after 20 minutes of being seated as we were not even served water and didn’t see a server. The restaurant was first, understaffed, a debacle in every sense. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

    Nice place went there with a reservation for 5. It was 5 women it seems like they were waiting for more people to come which I did not appreciate then a couple came in and they sat them with as which was not the problem but they had a baby a 7-8 months we go out to get a break the last thing you want is to sit with a crying child.

    Most people go to the Hibachi side of this restaurant, but the other table service side is also very good, very quiet, and feels safer during Covid. They have the usual Japanese choices, the entree come with a salad . You can order the Hibachi style food if you want, and they bring it to you already cooked on a plate. Or order something different -- I like the beef negamaki. If you don't have kids that need to be entertained by the Hibachi chef, the other side is a good choice.

    If you are going here for anything other than entertainment value. . just don't. The food is somehow both salty and bland. The rice was the worst rice I've ever had anywhere in the history of eating rice. My salad was swimming in water. Whatever it was that was in the watery tasteless soup was burned to a crisp. The service was inconsistent at best. Took too long before they took our beverage order, twice as long to actually bring them out, and we practically have to beg them to refill our waters and take a second drink order. And at no point did they ask if we wannted dessert before dropping the check on the table. Irritatingly, the table that arrived a full 10 minutes after we did got the chef before we did. The staff cleared half of our appetizer dishes but not all of them. Oh and don't plan on having conversations with anyone else at your table. They have to turn the fans on so high over the cooking surface that you can't hear anyone that is not directly next to you except of course the loud guy at the next table eating with his mouth open while telling stories. I'm not sure this means anything but if anyone at the table said "thank you"the chef responded with "your welcome" but if we said "Arigato" or Arigato gozaimasu" he said nothing. I tried 3 times. I wouldn't go back there for a free meal.

    The quantity of food per $ was good, but the soup and salad served were both skimpy; the vegetables included with the entrées ordered were disproportionately less in volume than at other Hibachi grill restaurants. NO separate sauces, typically one ginger and the other for meat, were provided either. The Chef did an average job of entertaining while cooking. NO ONE was patrolling for other diner needs, especially not refilling water glasses even once! A tip of 18% was automatically added to the bill (there were 5 diners in my group.)

    We made a reservation for Mother’s Day and it was a disaster. We were surrounded by people waiting who had also made reservations and had been waiting for 40-50 minutes past their reservation time. The restaurant did not see to honor and or manage their reservation times. When we were seated the table was barely clean and the grill still had rice on it from the previous patrons. This was not a case of short staffing on a busy holiday, this was purely a lack of time management. Now on to the meal. This was by far the worst habachi restaurant I have been to. The rice was flavorless and the shrimp very over cooked. I should have paid attention to the previous reviews and stayed away. I’m not sure this place would be any better on a non-holiday.

    My friend and I brought our kids here (ages 3 through 15) for dinner and had a great time. We dined on a Thursday evening so it wasn’t too busy at the time we arrived (5pm). Service was great and wait staff was very attentive. Food and drinks were also good and the entertainment of the chef was absolutely a highlight for the kids!

    Someone in our party had a shellfish allergy, and we clearly told the server as much. Still, our hibachi chef cross-contaminated all of the food he was preparing (right in front of us and in full view) as he did not segregate any of the food, cooking surface or cooking utensils. After reporting the issue to the server a separate plate of food was prepared from their kitchen albeit significantly later than everyone else’s meals. When we received the check it clearly noted “shellfish allergy” next to the person’s order so I don’t know where the breakdown occurred. This was a near miss and avoidable one at that. Also, their fried ice cream is wimpy and sad.

    Had a “Galentine’s” celebration with a friend and had a great time. The food was good and consistent for a teppanyaki place and I was pleasantly surprised by them having white sauce aka yum yum sauce. This sauce is a traditional staple for places like this in the south, but I had not found a place offering white sauce in the north. It made my night and I’ll be telling everyone I know that they have it. Looking forward to going back already.

    Food was mediocre at best— tasteless fried rice, over sauced and overcooked hibachi shrimp, tasteless iceberg lettuce salad, fast food type sauces, water not served until asked, people looked pained to be doing their job.

    Came here for a dinner to celebrate a friends birthday. We were sat at our a table with a bunch of kids who didn't order anything hibachi, yet if there was anything extra left over from cooking (rice, veggies) he gave it to the kids who did not order any hibachi meals. The service was HORRIBLE. I understand with covid theres short staffs but I am not joking when I say our waiter came over to take our orders and deliver our drinks and never came around again. We were constantly asking the waitress from the other table to help or grab our waiter. She was the one who took our drink orders instead of our waiter. Also when the bill came, they included the 6 college kids drinks totaling over $600 dollars to our bill because he thought we were all together, even though we were sat much later than them. I have been eating out all through covid but this was the worst one yet. No apologies for the lack of service or delays. Poor poor choice for dinner.
