I have to admit the atmosphere isn’t great and the servers are hit or miss. We had one super friendly guy and a couple people that were “cold”. The food was decent, not amazing. Parking is a little challenging when it’s busy. Prices are reasonable.

We had a great time with our family at the teppanyaki table. Gene was the most entertaining chef we have ever had. He was very accommodating to some of our special needs. Couldn't have asked for a better evening.

The restaurant is mostly setup for teppanyaki. There is small sushi bar. Food was decent. Excellent service too. Our teppanyaki chef was Navaho native. Funny guy. Sorry I forgot his name

It was frankly weird to have a high-end Japanese restaurant in my hotel in Flagstaff AZ, of all places, but it was surprisingly good nonetheless. I ate at their sushi bar, and the items I chose (kappa maki, tempura shrimp rolls, pork gyoza) were all...More

Dinner was good, just a bit salty. Our Teppanyaki chef had a few inappropriate jokes, about Viagra etc, with kids at the table! Not to happy about that. It was just okay this time.

This is a very good, but pricey, Japanese restaurant at the Double Tree Hilton in Flagstaff. This is the type of restaurant that has the table-side preparation of the food. Quite entertaining.
