We loved the hibachi grill experience so much we did it twice. Our chef was very skilled and comical. Everyone was surprised that the meal included not only chicken and steak but shrimp as well. There was a cocktail followed by soup, fried rice, main entree and dessert. It was fun to eat with strangers who felt like friends at the end of our experience!

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary here and were pleased with the entire experience. Great sushi. I had Hoison ribs that were melt in your mouth amazing! We sat with a perfect view of the water and light show that happened every 30 minutes, and it was beautiful. The wait staff was very attentive, and even made recommendations based upon our distinctive tastes. Just a great dining experience all around. Highly recommended!

We tried the crispy shrimp starter and the coconut soup with prawns and chicken. Both delicious. We had Pad Thai with sweet ribs and catch of the day. That came inside a pastry type parcel and was good but unfortunately we didn't find out what it consisted of due to the language barrier! Good food and everything eaten but have had much better Asian food at my local takeaway. I liked how much space there was between each table as it allowed the waiting staff to bring trolleys etc between tables without knocking into your chairs and lent a bit of privacy to any conversation ... Unless you had extremely loud guests at neighbouring tables ... As we did for the final half hour of our visit! Lovely decor.

We used to like this Vidanta resort restaurant a lot, now even more with the laser light show. We arrived for our 8:00 PM reservation a few minutes early and we were promptly seated so we could enjoy the 8:00 PM edition of the light show over the lake. The show is about 4 minutes long, every 30 minutes like clockwork and changes every time. We were there for 2 hours (each 30 minutes between shows seemed to fly by). All 4 of us ordered the black cod and everyone enjoyed it. The wait staff was friendly, helpful and professional without being too attentive as to be interrupting. We will return this visit.

Considering the location the sushi was delicious... great options and good service. The decor inside is traditional japanese style or choose a outdoor seating by the nightly small water show. The also have a teppanyaki options which is fun for a group.
