Looks like Banzai was unable to keep their head above water, even with its ongoing budget and quality cuts (or perhaps because of them). Seems like the table-show hibachi joint is going the way of the Dodo. Permanently closed.

Went here because we wanted to try a "dinner and a show" - but wound up sick on the way home... not sure if it was the salad bar or the dinner - but we will not go back.

It's ok, but getting more than a little over the hill. Everything seems coated with a layer of grease from the flaming hibachi grills going all the time. Good hibachi food, ok sushi in the basement.

Disappointed and annoyed! I used to go here often and this place has gone so downhill - both in food and in cleanliness. We went here because they had a coupon on Facebook for buy one entree, get one for $1. The coupon said to...More

As strict as the Hamilton Township Health Inspectors are, I'm not sure as to why they've not fined this restaurant or shut them down. The carpet is so dingy and nasty until its utterly utterly disgusting. This place is dark, dingy, stinky and nasty which...More

Avoid, avoid, avoid. Read the one and two stars reviews and you will know the truth. This place has a terrible odor and is not clean. Our server dropped a knife on the floor and picked it up and used it again. He used a...More
