We were from out of town with a school group. Reservations made and were seated quickly. Lots of families and children and activity so this may not be a choice for those who want a quiet dinner. Cook was excellent and food was good. I have been to other similar type restaurants where portions are much larger and cost less and have Yum Yum sauce. Yum Yum sauce lovers, you won't find any here, only ginger and mustard sauce.

The food was awesome and the cook was even better. They give GREAT portions and you can either get a 5 or 6 course meal. You get to make friends with your neighbor and enjoy nice hot food!

The chef cooking at the table did not engage with us and spent at least 50% of his time looking elsewhere and other customers etc. Several of his "tricks" went wrong. Food was average at best. What was a birthday celebration was turned into a mediocre evening.
