Least interesting Hibachi ever - boring... Wait staff seemed clueless. Food was fine. Interesting fish pond and private Japanese rooms. Plenty of better hibachi places in the area though.

We should have left when we walked in because it appeared dirty. We stayed because we had a coupon and were with another family. Totally not worth it! Even with the coupon, very overpriced. We usually bring home left overs from hibachi because of the...More
