Went the other day and got the teriyaki chicken. It was pretty good and watching the chefs cook is always entertaining.

My husband and I love to come here. We brought 20 family members here, of varying ages, to celebrate January birthdays. Only thing was, the flames scared the 4-year-old, but she got over it and watched the next one. Their shrimp and scallops are fresh and tasty. The only beef we've ever gotten was the fillet mignon. They also offer... More

We have eaten here several times and we've always had fun. The kids had a great time being entertained by the chef as did the adults. The food was very good and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

This is the place to go in Gainesville for quality sushi. My wife and I try to eat there at least once a month. Service is very good.

Stopped into this Japanese/Korean restaurant for some sushi on Saturday for lunch. We have eaten at other sushi restaurants in town and this one is our favorite. Nice selection, but most importantly the fish is fresh and top quality. Presentation is excellent. Service here is slow, inattentive and for Gainesville just cold. But still, its the best sushi in town... More

Entire staff was friendly from greeting to exit. I ordered the filet mignon and shrimp. The filet mignon was outstanding! The shrimp was good, too, jumbo sized, but it's difficult to get shrimp wrong. There were eight of us as part of work outing. Of course, the chef was entertaining, as entertaining as any other restaurant of this style. Equally... More

The food is pretty good here. I have had somewhat better other places but it is above average. A nice touch here is the scoop of vanilla ice cream they give you after the meal. Some of the cooks are more skilled than others but they all make good food. It seems to always be very hot in this restaurant... More

If a customer tells you they have a seafood allergy and please cook your wife's food first, you should listen. We told the waitress and cook at the hibachi grill and he brings out all the meats for the table on one tray with seafood!!! Really all I wanted was a nice Valentine's dinner. He cleaned grill and cooked my... More

I went to Kiku Japanese Steakhouse once before and was treated so much better than this... Yet upon entering their establishment this time I found myself already getting snubbed by the staff first because they were demanding that no service animals were permitted in the building and decided straight from the start they were going to do everything possible to...
