Stopped in for lunch with a friend. Both of us had the sushi boxes, and they were delicious. Service was superb! We wanted for nothing and, if we did, it magically appeared. We were treated like honored guests...including a pair of whimsical Minion chopsticks for my chopstick-challenged companion. Loved the miso soup. Even on a hot day, miso soup hits... More

We didn't realize the restaurant had changed owners and were glad they didn't change much inside except the decor and added Pho to the varied menu. They have a nice Sushi Bar and still serve teppanyaki (chef cooking on a hot grill in front of 2 to 10 diners-which is entertaining and delicious) We sampled the Pho. It was good,... More

This is an easy, fun and clean restaurant to take your family. There are enough different types of food to satisfy most anyone (one of our daughters lover the shrimp, one loves the chicken and one loves the salmon). The fried rice is quite good and a hit with everyone. And having a chef cook it in front of you... More

We recently had an early dinner here with 3 adults and 3 toddlers. The place is large and clean, if lacking in character. It's sort of cheesy, and it's in a strip mall. Think Benihana but way less upscale and way more family-friendly. We sat at a Teppanyaki table. We ordered tropical drinks, mai tais and the island blue, which... More

We love this place. Consistent food, great fun, we had one of the best chefs and he made a great volcano with the rice and onion. I had a vegetable tempura which was average. The soup and salad were good as always. I had the filet as did my wife which was excellent my son had the teriyaki steak which... More

The place is great but if you don't get one of the better chefs at your table it can be a horrible experience. We had a chef named Tray and he is número uno but we saw a few other chefs that were horrible. Lucky for us we had Tray. He was full of good humor and was an excellent... More

Hiromi was our server (hope I spelled her name correctly), and she was absolutely sweet and very kind! Hubby and I came here with my mom and grandma last Saturday night. We didn't want to sit at the grill (think of Benihana-style) or at the sushi bar, so we just sat at booth seating. Miso soup was delicious, so was... More
