I don't believe I have ever been in an Asian (Japanese) restaurant of this poor quality. The food was not good from rice to the hibachi chicken. The decor is in poor shape where there were a few booths with tape on the seats keeping the stuffing in. The staff was friendly but not enough to make up for everything... More

The food here is great and the dining is typically very spacious because the main attraction for this place is the drive thru. Yes, a drive thru hibachi that is as good as any sit down hibachi restaurant. This is great for a night in.

We are regulars here. Food quality is good, great tasting. Not cooked right in front of you, so no show with dinner, but it's quick and tastes great. And affordable!

This restaurant is NOTHING like the ones in Gastonia and Belmont, NC. There were no cars in the parking lot and no one in the restaurant, but we figured it was just 11:20am and they opened at 11. However, no one else came in the whole time we were there. The ones in North Carolina are packed by noon. Once... More

I used to go here more often but hadn't been in a couple of years. I went back this week and it was all the same, really. The atmosphere is only okay. But the food is decent. I like the mushrooms. I've never seen any critters while I was there. And they kept my cup full. I guess I have... More

I ordered the shrimp and scallops combination. When I got home and opened the bag and box this rotten smell encompassed my entire kitchen. I immediately called and told them what happened. The guy could have cared less and told me there was nothing he could do about it. I would have drove back and let them smell it for... More

Rice was prepaid and sat around in a warmer. Sauces were $1.20 extra. I would skip next time I'm in town

If you like Hibachi and Teryacki Chicken, you've come to a reasonably price and good place. The rice and veggie portion is good and that shrimp sauce makes anything taste heavenly in my opinion. The fact that they have a drive-through window is very convenient too. Plenty of space for large groups.

Me and a couple of buddies stopped in here hoping for some good Asian food. The service was lackluster, but that's not the worst part. About half way through our meal, a roach crawled across the wall of our booth, and onto our table. We had to persist in getting our credit cards refunded, and the owners acted as though... More
