This is our "go-to" restaurant for special occasions. It's large and attractively decorated with dark woods. One side is for Hibachi, where the chefs chop, toss, and cook dinner right there in front of you, and the other side for ordering from the expensive menu,...More

This is a good place to get Japanese Hibachi. They have the option to eat at the grill or in the dining room. They have many options on the hibachi side and you get a lot of food. Prices are comparable to other hibachi restaurants....More

I called to order calamari, the person had no idea what I was asking after repeating 3 times. (She finally understood) When I went to pick up the order and gave the cashier my credit card. She asked why I didn't want to pay in...More

We chose to eat there on July 19 for a family (adults & children) birthday celebration. When we walked in, it smelled bad and the restaurant was so hot & humid. The floor was so greasy and slippery that it was unsafe to walk on....More
