It is fun watching the cooks prepare the food. The trouble is the service is rushed, the service not too friendly and quality of the food mediocre for the price charged. Waitress seemed harried; not too polite. Noise level was such that you could not...More

Great atmosphere! Excellent food! Hubby and I decided to do their "Happy Hour." It was great. The bartender, Greg was friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a couple of appetizers and enjoyed their Boston Rolls! Fresh food!

The hibachi is entertaining and delicious - with huge portions! Make a reservation and verify that everyone is at the same table if you have a large party. Servers are very accommodating and can separate checks with ease!
