Although the place looks like it was built when Teddy was in the White House, don’t let appearances fool you. First, the service is friendly and accommodating. The key to these types of steakhouses is the chef. Ours of course was outstanding. He was even...More

We were invited to join friends for a birthday celebration. Everyone had a fantastic time. The food was excellent and the show by the chef was even better. We had to wait to be seated (even with our reservation) and it took some time for...More

Located just off a very busy road, the exterior appears "run down"and the interior matches. Old decor has not been updated, painted,etc. The proprietors are ethnic Japanese and are very courteous and helpful. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Service is adequate and pleasant.

Although this place is in need of some upgrades and "brightness", the food is always great! The price is what I'd expect for a restaurant like this. Friendly service, great for groups!
