This is one of my favorite places. The cost is VERY affordable, portions are plentiful, and the food is DELICIOUS. I follow a lower carb way of eating. I order the vegetable plate. They offer a side of their carrots (like candy! They are wonderfully sweet) or zucchini. I opted for the zucchini because I wanted lower carbs. On a... More

Service is quick, food taste very good! Price is great! They cook in an open area, nice to those who are always concerned of how your food is " treated" before comes to the table :) restaurant is clean. Picture below shows the Filet Mignon meal!

My family and I enjoy Motos very much. Yaki and sesame chicken are always good. Only draw back is do not expect a show as compared to some Japanese places. Menu is limited somewhat. Not much at all in regards to sushi. The interior is in need of updating as it has an old, dingy appearance. That is the main... More

Always good food, great service, fair prices. The waitress knows us by name, and knows what we want without even having to order!

We had 4 orders of yaki with carrots and rice. All was good and there was plenty of food for everyone. We will order to go again.

Moto's use to be a good place to have some Japanese food at reasonable prices. We for the third time in the past two months got sick from the food we eat there. Don't think we will be going back there. There are plenty of other Japanese restaurants in the area so we will be trying them.

We eat here on a regular basis. Usually we get an order to-go. This time we ordered yaki with carrots. All was good and the meat was so tender and juicy. Will return.
