My clothes and hair smelled awful. I went directly home and washed my hair and changed clothes. Get bigger exhaust fans, it was hard to breathe in there. Spicy chicken was not at all spicy. Dry chicken with non-existent sauce. Tempura batter was awful, veggies cut so big they were still raw. Onion piece was so thick I couldn't bite... More

We had the super mexican roll, crunchy roll, and the kamikaze roll. Wow spectacular. Paired with a cold draft sapporo and hot sake. In expensive happy hour drinks and rolls. This is in the bar area of the restaurant. Excellent service from our beautiful server Min. Happy hour from3 to 6 pm.

The place was crowded even at 5PM. There were 6 of us then a couple was seated with our group. We ordered NY steak which came with a few shrimp, veggies, soup, salad. We also ordered fried rice. The food was good and well-prepared.

Overcrowded and average for a teppanyaki place. I'd recommend passing on the sushi. They have a decent beverage selection, but is it really worth the wait?

Work lunch was a lot of fun and definitely a different experience. Service was pretty good and the lunch specials were really dinner size portions. Enjoyable show too. We had shrimp scallops chicken and steak. Will do it again. Freeway access is easy.
