This is only time I have ever had wasabi that was 100% tasteless. It ruined the whole meal. I am giving it 3 stars since service was good. Since this is a pricy restaurant, I will not risk coming back anytime soon.

I frequent this restaurant. The service is great and the food is good. One of the things I love about this place is how fast they dish the food up. Cozy and warm atmosphere; pleasant music. Fair value.

Four of us visited the Teppanyaki section, overall we felt it was overpriced. One of our meals was too salty and another one too dry to eat. It was nothing memorable.

Quite happy with the place. The food was good and the service was great. Met the owner and he was a very friendly person. enjoyed the tuna/salmon cracker appetizer the most. the sushi itself is as to be expected in Latin America. I would return.
