Our first visit and we will be back! Our waiter Robert was very helpful with the menu. All the food was very good, fresh and served promptly. Of course going on birthday weekend helped a lot with the bill. Happy Birthday Desaki!

The entertainment was very good, the quality of the food was also very good. The seasoning was a bit on the garlic side. Be prepared to pay an 18% gratuity as its automatically applied to your bill.

Five Star pricing for Two Star food. I've tasted much better Hibachi for a lot less. This place is a tourist trap and will cost you an arm and a leg. You can easily get hit for $100-200 for two people!

If you have been to a Hibachi restaurant before this is nothing special. Very typical in the offerings. They do not take reservations so first come first served which is a plus. Very pricey compared to other Hibachi restaurants. Not much in the way of...More
