A three star might be pushing it but..I don't often write reviews below 3 stars, but in this case I'll make an exception. We stopped by the MOA while waiting on a flight. We enjoy Teppanyaki so thought we'd stop to wait for our flight....More

Our chef was very entertaining, engaging, accommodating and the best we have had at a hibachi restaurant. When someone was struggling with their chopsticks, he went and made "kiddie" chopsticks with a rubberband and chopstick wrapper. Our waitress went missing during dinner, and our chef...More
