This was our third time coming here on Spring Break. Good portions at a reasonable price for Hibachi. Kids enjoyed the steak and shrimp.

The server and the cook were good- but the food just wasn't great. The soup was too salty and tasted several days old- the "crunchies" were bits of floating wisps- just wasn't appealing. The salad was beyond soggy- downright wet with water, to the point it watered down the dressing. No one watered down ginger dressing. The yum-yum sauce was watered down too. Veggies were more onion than anything. The meats were good- and the rice was fine. You spend a good chunk of change on this kind of dinner for it to be blah. It was slow the night we went- The three of us ended up with a table on our own and the chef while ran through the motions seemed a bit bored. Maybe it was just a bad night- but I was referred by a friend and I wouldn't refer anyone.

This place used to be good, but has gone downhill. The food quality is low and the atmosphere is pitiful. The owner including the servers and chef seem like they’d rather be somewhere else. Sadly, I don’t think this place will be around much longer. It’s Friday night and the place is dead.

Great hibachi! They didn't complain when everyone chose hibachi and sushi. Kids loved hibachi options while parents enjoyed sushi. Thank you for entertaining while having great food. Loved steak, chicken, and shrimp. Awesome sushi as well.

This a mediocre place. It's Friday night around 7:00 pm, and only a few tables were sat. Atmosphere is lacking, it looks dirty, and looks run down. The men's restroom is gross and I assume the ladies room is the same. There's no shrimp appetizer but the shrimp was frozen shrimp from Vietnam. It tasted funky and was rubbery. The salmon most likely farmed from the same place, tasted like it was swimming at the bottom of some cesspool. Chef was pleasant but no thrills, very little interaction with the guests. The chicken and steak maybe better options for food. Wasabi at the town center is a much better choice. I would not dine here again, there's simply better choices elsewhere.
