What better way to spend a 65th birthday with my family and your own private chef. Exceptional dinner and show by our server complete with a birthday cake for me and an anniversary sparkler for my daughter and son-in- law. Great to have server cater to the little ones making sure dinner was prepared to their liking. First time they... More

I have been there twice since last year already but only for lunch time. Lunch time is very economical but great show when cooking Japanese teppan-yaki. It was always busy during dinner, so I had no chance to be there for dinner but I have been very happy with their lunch regarding its taste, entertainment, and price. It seems some... More

This is an overall decent Teppanyaki place. Very loud and busy, but runs very well. Make reservations, as we tried to get in one night and wait time was too long. Food was good, as expected. Only thing I was not too fond of was the excessive use of garlic. Maybe it was our chef, so I can't say for... More

If you've never been to a Japanese steak house, you're in for a real treat. To see your food prepared by a mad knife wielding chef at the table is an experiance.....Great fun, and if you take little ones they make an extra special effort to keep them amused as well!

We enjoyed our dinner there. We made last minute reservations and were able to get the time we needed. Our server was friendly and our chef was funny and entertaining. Our steak was prepared properly and all of our food including the fried rice was delicious. It was conveniently located as we were staying in the Hilton Hawaiian Village and... More

This restaurant had good food. It was not as good as some for the price, but it still was good. It is convenient to the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort.

We have been to many places like this. There are two things that are equally important to me with this type of dining, the food and the quality of the presentation . In this case, the food was much better. I had hoped to have more laughs and fun but that never came. No fire, no food tossing, no jokes... More

Although the food we ordered was fine, it was nothing like what we were hoping for. There was no sushi which was the main reason we went to this restaurant because my one daughter was looking forward to it so much. Our meals were average in taste. The teppanyaki table show was very boring and nothing special. I also felt... More
