This is our "go-to" restaurant for special occasions. It's large and attractively decorated with dark woods. One side is for Hibachi, where the chefs chop, toss, and cook dinner right there in front of you, and the other side for ordering from the expensive menu, including many sushi choices. (You can order anything from either side.)

They have all-you-can-eat sushi at lunch and dinner; choose from about a dozen or so types. If you over-order, you have to pay for the uneaten pieces. Their two or three sushi-roll lunch is less expensive and you can take tour leftovers home.

The Hibachi is a fun experience watching the chef make your meal with fried rice, noodles, vegetables, and your choice of sirloin, tenderloin, chicken, salmon, shrimp, and maybe 1-2 other choices, and combos. They also joke around, juggling raw eggs, tossing shrimp at the guests' open mouths, etc. Each person gets a huge plate which we can never finish so we get take-home boxes for leftovers. We celebrated the 3 year old grandson's birthday there; he LOVED the show AND the food.

My only criticism is that it's very salty; besides the sodium in the soy sauce and other sauces, they shake salt on top of everything on the hibachi grill.

This is a good place to get Japanese Hibachi. They have the option to eat at the grill or in the dining room. They have many options on the hibachi side and you get a lot of food. Prices are comparable to other hibachi restaurants. They also offer a wide variety of sushi which is very good. The service was prompt and drink refills came fast. They do not serve alcohol here so no Sapporo or Sake. Overall this is a great hibachi restaurant with great service and food.

Every year for 6 or 7 years we have gone here for dinner. It’s hard to find somewhere to go to for dinner on Christmas Eve with our family. Most places are closed, understandably. Aya never disappoints. The food is great and the entertainment while preparing the food is superb. Every year our grown kids ask if we’re going there.

The food here is always good, the wait can sometimes be a little long when they are trying to fill a grill side table.

Had dinner with our granddaughter. The portions are plentiful and taste was ok. She ordered the tempura cheesecake for dessert and it was huge. Not somewhere we go regularly, but ok for a change of pace.
