I love this restaurant! Have eaten here many, many, times and have been pleased every time! My husband and I always get the Sesame Chicken and Shrimp. It is just wonderful! We usually opt for the sweet carrots instead of the veggies, but both are very good. They have the best Shrimp Sauce of any Japanese Restaurant I have ever... More

Stopped by for lunch today. I had Yakima steak and shrimp. It was delicious. My wife had the Jumbo Shrimp which was good also. We ate off the lunch menu and the servings were to much for us to eat.

I've ate here numerous times over the past 10 years and it's always great. I've had the yaki, shrimp, chicken, scallops, and lobster. You can't go wrong with the meat/fish you choose. Whether you dine in or take out the quality is the same.

I have ate here twice. The first time I ate here I had never ate Japanese food. They cook everything right in front of you and is priced well. I am just not the biggest fan. The second time I was pregnant and ended up getting sick and it turned me against it completely. If you like Japanese I would... More

The tip off to what was ahead should have been the paint chipped, nasty looking front door. However we proceeded hoping for the best. The best never happened. The service, food and ambiance in this place is horrible. Worst of all is the overall uncleanliness. The grill top tables have a zillion years of grease embedded into them. We should... More

We have eaten at many Japanese steakhouses around the country and our experience at this one was the absolutely the worst experience. First, the person doing the cooking at our table was just a cook and lacked many of the skills of an experienced chef we have experienced at may other Japanese steakhouses. We found many things missing from the... More

Food and portions were outstanding. Tasty and very professionally prepared. The only problem was that the service was terribly slow, until the chef showed up. We were there, at our table, for over an hour before order was taken. I believe they were extremly short handed on this Saturday night.

We have eaten here several times. The food is always great and there is always more than enough to take home for another meal. There are several chefs that are more exciting & interactive than others but the staff is always friendly.

We went there with a party of 12 so we had one grill completely to ourselves. Upon entering in the waiting area, I noticed immediately the piles and piles of papers around the waiting area...there was invoices, newspapers, magazines, etc. in piles behind the checkout counter. Once our party arrived we were placed around a grill. I looked up and... More
