Nice atmosphere, great dinner and show watching the chefs cook. Only downfall was being seated with 2 families with kids. Should try to keep adults with other adults and families with kids at like tables.

Most hibachi places are the same. This menu was par for the course. However our server absolutely broke his back the entire time. No cup was empty, no one was rushed, and everything was completely in order and on time. That’s really what counts at...More

Always a treat to eat here. Love the sushi offering as well. Feels like being rushed sometimes but I am a quick paced eater.

I like the location on Major Reynolds Place 100X better! The chefs at this location don’t seem to be as interactive and entertaining not is the food as good. It’s good but not GREAT.

We went early, getting there a bit prior to opening at 5:00. By 5:15 the hibachi tables were full. We enjoyed the food and the chef. Plenty of flavor with 5 or 6 dip choices. Server was very attentive.

I have several friends who love this place. I'm not sure if it's the show from the cook or if it's the atmosphere that's different from other restaurants that appeals to them but, I'm convinced it's not the food. Unless, they like for all their...More
