The food was not very good at all! It made my whole family sick. It also is very over priced even for a Japanese grill menu. Would not recommend or go again.

I am a huge hibachi and sushi fan and this place exceeded my expectations! Pricey but so so so worth it. The lobster roll is to die for and the hibachi is just as yummy. Super filling! Definitely recommend!!
