My cousins took us here as a Christmas present. Had heard of it, but never been -- although I did live in Japan for two years. Must admit, it was a lot like being back in Japan. Relatively large, with good staff and excellent chefs! You certainly get plenty of food for the cost and a good show. Well worth... More

Great atmosphere but if you dont feel like waiting forever or care about the show at the hibatchi the dining room is quite nice. I love their sushi and often fill my craving here. We have visited several time and have always left happy.

I love the experience of the hibachi but dislike the noise that comes with it. I find it very difficult to hear with all the noise in the room. The food is very good but if you indulge you better bring your wallet,this restaurant is not cheap to go to. Also the Happy Birthday drum is loud and is pounded... More

I'm sorry to hear that it can get quite loud for you. Unfortunately, there isn't much that we can do to reduce that noise while you're eating in the hibachi side, as the fun environment and party environment and Ido truly apologize for that. However, you're always welcome to eat in the other side of our restaurant. I hope you'll... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple times when I visit friends in Bangor and every time feels like the first time. They entertain from the moment you walk through the door until the moment you leave. Depending when you go it could be crazy busy so I'd recommend going for lunch or getting a reservation but go regardless and... More

We typically go here when visiting my daughter at UMaine and are never disappointed! I have NOT had the hibachi, just the sushi, but man do they ever nail that. Excellent wait staff.

This atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice and the food was good. Not very good, just good. Our waiter really struggled with our orders and his knowledge of the menu. But he tried. I would go back but only if I were in the area. It was walking distance from the Comfort Inn which does not have a restaurant.
