We are so happy we found this restaurant, and as crazy as it sounds, our noses led us here. So seriously we were walking out of the Lowes grocery across the street, smelled delicious Asian food, and drove across he street to find where it was coming from! I think there is a sign by the road, but it's difficult... More

This restaurant was extremely good. We had gotten there late but they took there time with us and made sure we were well taken care of. Our waitress promptly took our orders and saw to it that our salads and soups were out there as quick as possible. Once we finished with those they brought out our main course. I... More

Nice staff, good food and reasonable pricing. Not sure you need much else from a restaurant! Having read a few less favorable reviews I must say that we were there on a quiet night and the attention from the staff was fantastic. Not sure what it would be like when it was busy.

There was a bit of a strange odor when we entered the restaurant. Don't know what it was but it was not pleasant. It was late and many other places were closed or closing so we stayed. Service was quite good but the food was average to below par. They had a special sushi roll of the day that was... More

This is not a place to eat. They serve you grizzle and not meat, if you ever get a waitress to get to taking your order that is. Slow, and slack as most of Southport proves to be in SERVICE and QUALITY! Overpriced and not even close to Japanese food at all. Not sure how they stay open as all... More

Hibachi dinners are great! Plenty of food on plate. The shrimp was so good too! Had my family from out of town with me and my husband and they loved it too! Thanks

The service was okay. The food was okay. The prices were a little steep for the quality and the portions. If you are going to pay the prices here, you are better off going to Miyabis (or somewhere like that). I ran out of drink multiple times because there was only on person working the floor. I understand it is... More
