Took the family here for a hibachi lunch. Chefs were friendly and highly entertaining. The kids loved it. Prices were reasonable for lunch but dinner prices were higher - pretty steep for Carbondale. Sushi looked good. Employees did a great job providing refills and taking care of the customers. New building so everything was in great shape.

The new building is great along with their sushi. Haven't had a bad dinner yet and they make a great whiskey sour. I would recommend to anyone!

Great food, friendly service, great atmosphere . We didn't set on the side where the food is cooked in front of you but the feeling of friends and fun is felt throughout the restraunt. Had to giggle hearing the customers reactions to the show. You could tell it was fun to watch since it was fun to listen to.

Went with family for a birthday dinner. Food was great, chef was quite entertaining. I'll definitely go back. Great for all ages. It's great watching the food getting cooked right in front of you.

Our server, Lily Ann was very professional and helpful. Had the vegetarian bento which was very good. Ordered the salmon bento which was way overcooked. Décor is very attractive especially in the bathrooms.

I've been to this place a lot . Good food and good service. Have not had a bad experience at this place. The only down fall is they don't have much of a kids meal.

This is OK the 1st time, but there is a lot clowning in the show. I would rather have something more authentic

Best food in carbondale but step up service side a bit. Food always tastes great but glasses usually served w hardly any ice and slow on refills. Otherwise it would be number 1 by far.

We had such a great time being entertained while watching our food being prepared on the hibachi! Wonderful atmosphere, bathrooms are clean. I'll say it again. The bathrooms are clean! And wonderful food. I've been in Carbondale for 5 years and this was my first visit. I will definitely go again

Thank Carla C
