Always a great meal...excellent sushi and the cooks preform at the dining table. You have to share a table with others which doesn't allow for intimate dining.

Fun place to eat for a couple or a family. Clean and friendly environment. Average price for this style of restaurant. Two thumbs up

Ran across this place last year and am I ever glad I did. Huge portions, Really good quality of food, and very reasonable price. My wife and I usually have the steak and chicken combination dinner. The steak looks to be whole 8 to 10 ounce ribeye. Last time we went was on a prom night with many tables of... More

We did not have any wait time for 6 of us, but the place was busy! A nice little surprise for a birthday person that will entertain your table. Good food, decent price, but get a lot for your money

Good food, pricey, was not the usual entertaining experience expected at a Japanese steakhouse kids kept asking the chef to make a volcano or anything. Just threw the rice around like a 3 year old having a tantrum!!!

We went with a family member, and we were waiting for them to arrive. You cannot be seated without your entire group....which seemed to make no difference as the group before us got seated but had to wait until our people showed up, so why we couldn't wait and sit, I have no idea. The food is good though. I... More

I was not thrilled with the food, however it was entertaining for kids to watch the chefs. The cost for our family of 4 was over $100 and we only had water to drink! We have only been there once since they opened and do not plan on going back......better places in Columbus area in my opinion!

It was a lot better than I expected. I usually compare places like this to Benihana (my fave), and this place is definitely a place I would go to when I want Benihana but don't want to drive all the way there.

I love Japanese steak houses. It is nice that there is one in Lancaster. This one is on target pretty much in terms of price. The soup was nothing to write home about and the salad was bland iceberg lettuce with imitation bacon bits that were stale. The dressing was ok. The chef was pleasant and entertaining. I had chicken... More
