This in my opinion is the best japanese restraunt we have in town. The food has more flavor than some I've tried.

We eat here regularly and it has always been perfectly prepared and delicious. We have ran the menu, tried sides, soups, their shrimp sauce is awesome. It is really good and quite popular. Quick drive through for carry-out pick up.

Was in the area looking for some Japanese and settled on Tamiko. Food was ok but not anything to be excited about. It would have been worth the drive to Bristol for a better Japanese restaurant.

We go there often. You receive a salad, soup, with each meal. The meals are large with plenty of meat, rice, and vegetables. They have other things to choose from if necessary. Really good food, clean, but cold. Take a jacket unless you like cold. I'm a Grandma, have to be warm. Enjoy, we sure do. Jamie

Look, we all know this isn't traditional Japanese food, and that's okay. It's a place you go when you want a huge pile of food for a reasonable price. Service is not outstanding, but that's okay, too. Recognizing what this restaurant is and is not will help a lot. :)

Food is just average and not cooked in front of you like traditional hibachi. Not exactly a place I would frequent but had never tried it. The service is excellent and the staff fast and efficient. Very friendly atmosphere. Good to try and get it off my list, the price is definitely better than the place next door.

Did not expect much but it was okay. Server was better than food. Would recommend this If you are in a hurry or just wanted decent food. You do get a lot. And will have plenty to take home.
