This place is expensive for the quality of food you get. It is supposed to be an experience, however our cook wasn't interested. We paid $ 87.oo for lousy steak , a lot of rice and vegetables I do not recommend this place.

Absolutely underwhelmed by our dinner to-go. 4 hibachi dinner entrees, over $100 and not a single flavor to be found anywhere. Not even the yum yum sauce could bail out the overcooked salmon. The veggies were steamed and all tasted like a red pepper. The fried rice also appeared steamed, without much color and seasoning. I anticipated it tasting a smidgen differently from dining in at the table but not remotely this drastically. Never had this problem with the Forestville location.

Bobby is hands down the best hibachi chef any of us had ever been served by. Funny, edgy humor, personable, great show and of course delicious food. We had so many amazing laughs.


Good food, and good waiting time. I would definitely recommend coming hete for some fresh food.


Cheif was phenomenal with all of his tricks! Friendly and quick! Food was delicious and abundant! Such a treat. I had the chicken and tenderloin combo! Will come again! Loved this place!

We've been to plenty of japanese Steakhouse hiabchi restaurants, so this one was slightly disappointing compared to others.First, I want to commend the servers. We had a large group of people for a celebration, and the servers were on point with getting our orders and filling drinks. A few hiccups, but nothing bad and all understandable due to the size.I was sitting in the middle of the side so I could see both chefs cooking (you understand if you know the layout of hibachi). One chef was great, making jokes and stuff. The other chef did not seem happy and very rehearsed. Not fun at all.Main thing for the review is the food was fairly bland compared to other places. I saw them season everything similarly so not sure why. Maybe quality of the meats? Steak was also overdone. Portion size was the same bigness, and I always like when they give both noodles and rice instead of something like mushroom appetizer (lame!). Fried rice was also not an upcharge. Soup was bland, but salad was good.

This is my go to spot for hibachi given the amount of food you get it definitely worth the money i usually spent 78 -100 for me my husband and my son the entrees are usually 20-28 per meat selection


The food was good but the show was lacking.

I have dined at this location several times. Placed a carry out order on 6/27/21 which included 3 filet mignon entrees. The steak for each of the orders was not filet mignon; it was regular steak and was not cooked as requested (It was well done and tough). Very disappointed after paying $146.00. If filet mignon was not available, they should have said something and not charged extra. Also, even though the price is the same for dine in and carry out, the amount of food you receive for carry out is much less.

My kids and I were expecting a nice night for Father's Day. We sat down and watch the chef lick his fingers to taste a season while cooking. I told the manager and the rest of the people at our table, then we left. I paid for the drinks and left a tip because another guy was great about the situation. They also gave us plastic forks. Licking your fingers in front of the customers while cooking their food is pretty shameless. My guess, he's done it before. We'll never go back.

My 1st impression was not the greatest. We arrived before the rest of our party to celebrate my grandson's birthday. The hostess said she could not allow us to order a beverage . It was already bad we had to wait to be seated until rest of party of 16 arrived, but to not even be able to order a beverage just threw me for a loop. Evidently, a manager heard some of our group complaining and he took our beverage orders and brought them to us. From that point on, our service and food was great!
