Joe is always a great teppanyaki cook, the food and the sauces, ingredients they are using are becoming low quality, the staff turnover is reflecting on the previously great service. They are still better than most local hibachi grill in the area. I still prefer them over the rest within their locality.

The food was was better than average. Most evening meals were 22 to 36 dollars. The plum wine was very good, if you like sweet... More

Been to many, many hibachi style Japanese restaurants but this one is special. The hostess was friendly, the teppinaki chef could have been better ... Yu ou could tell he was just going through the motions... But the portions were the biggest I've ever seen at at Japanese restaurant. It was delicious as well. We were there celebrating my wife's...

I have gone 2 times. Once for lunch and once for dinner. You will pay double for dinner but the show is much better. Lunch is about the food, not the show. Not an issue if you have done this type of restaurant before. They have amazing sushi. I recommend the Spicy Crab California Roll. If you are not a... More

We brought my in laws here for a birthday celebration on a weekend for lunch. We arrived before noon and were seated at another hibachi table with others. Our drink orders were taken while we looked over the menu. We didn't order any sushi. We opted for a hibachi meal and that is all. For lunch you get to choose... More

Fun atmosphere for family lunch/dinner. Children really enjoy the show & interaction with the chef. The food is fresh but average when compared to other hibachi restaurants.

This place is your standard Benihna-type steakhouse where you sit around a grill and they make volcanoes out of onions, and throw shrimp around, and some other tricks. I had dinner here on New Year's Eve. The prices skyrocketed to gouge the clientele on this night. I thought the portions for the rib eye and other steaks was really, really... More

Took a couple co- workers and out of town guests. We were sat in a private room which was very drafty. The food was good, portions were large and the chef was great and very funny. Fun time, something different!

This restaurant had a good feel and large menu but the rolls where just not good. My friends had the tempura calamari and they really liked it but most of us wanted good sushi and Japanese rolls and were let down. The salad with ginger dressing was good though. We won't return.
