We went only for the sushi and it was okay. The man in charge suggested the Texas roll which was very good. The service was actually a little pushy and the edamame tasted great, but the portion was very small. Probably will try tsubaki the next time we're in town.

From Longview to Lufkin, this is the best Hibachi we've had. Mostly it's the rice. Somehow it is just more flavorful than the other Hibachi grills around. This is a popular place so it usually doesn't take as long to get service here compared to some others.

The food is actually good, but the restaurant needs some care. Not much thought to the little things that need cleaning and repair. Best to go with a large goup otherwise you will dine with children and people you don't know.

My personal favorite is the sirloin hibachi, they first deliver some onion soup which doesn't look like much, but is super delicious. Then they roll out a cart with the rice, vegetables, and steak, or chicken, or shrimp, etc. Then they cook it right in front of you and that rice is soooo good, I could just stop there, but... More

This restaurant is in a strip mall and the overall ambiance is poor. There are two hibachi tables and several sushi tables. We were there later in the evening and it was clear that we were an imposition. The sushi was excellent! Everything else was just average. A bit expense for what you got.

Service was very good and the food was really tasty! It was fun to watch them prepare the food. And the cooks were funny and entertaining. They give you plenty of food too!

I love to come here and eat. It get pretty expensive at night time, but for lunch it's great prices for just as much food. They do have a strict policy on not seating incomplete parties, but its understandable since it is a Japanese hibachi restaurant. Speaking of the hibachi it was great seasoned well and the fried rice is... More

We enjoy eating here on occasion. Somewhat $$$. But know a few things .., do not share a plate they charge you (there is enough food for 2 people). Also do not show up before whole party has arrived. The manager is somewhat of a bully and will yell for you to wait for others. So when limited time and... More

I like to eat here during the lunch hour when the pricing is a bit more affordable. Several times I have dined here alone but, did not feel alone since I was seated with other people. I enjoy watching the chef cook the food fresh in front of me. Never had a bad meal here. It is by far the... More
