Couple friendly, group friendly, family friendly, everybody friendly. Either take out; grill or table. We prefer the hibachi grill where our meal is cooked in front of us with a super chef. Filet and Shrimp is our favorite. Also, plum wine. Most people order suchi... however, we just aren't that savvy...GO THERE! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!

My family of 8 decided to do hibachi dinner here. Although we had called ahead there was still a slight wait when we arrived. Fine. While waiting my family took advantage of the well stocked bar. The drinks were liberally made and there was a nice selection of the standard Japanese beers. Our hibachi chef was extremely entertaining and kept... More

This place is very difficult to get into. It does not have a large sign in the street front and can easily be missed. The parking lot is very small. What I hate about eating in Japanese grill places is that one has to wait for the grill table to fill up before the cook would show up. This can... More

This is one of our favorite places in Tuscaloosa. The staff is great - the food is awesome. We have never had a bad experience at Hokkaido. If you go - ask for John to be your chef. This is a must eat if you are in Tuscaloosa!

This is a very popular restaurant so it was disappointing that it was not better. We sat at a table; maybe that was our mistake. The salad was iceberg lettuce with a "ginger" dressing that was not gingery, but bland and more like ranch dressing. The soup was good, and the sushi was good. The teriyaki chicken was gummy and...

We were staying in town just one night and decided to find a hibachi place. We brought our 2.5-year-old and sat with a family of 7 (mom, dad, grown children plus a spouse or two... couldn't tell for sure!). The way it works is that each hibachi table needs to fill up before they will start taking food orders. We... More

My wife and I took a couple of our young college friends to Hokkaidos. We were greeted when we came in the door and seated within 5 minutes. The lunch portions were very generous and the food was excellent. We will definitely be going back !!

My wife and I visited Tuscaloosa during the aftermath of the ALA/LSU football game. Sunday lunch no less. Walked into the restaurant at 12 noon and requested a seat at an hibachi table. Seated rather quickly considering the rush for lunch. We had filet and scallops. Enjoyed the chef's antics and the food was superb. Service was organized and timely.... More

I took my son and two friends to Hokkaido for a birthday dinner. We went early for easier seating, arriving at 6 p.m. Orders taken, salad and soup served, mains grilled and bill on the table by 6:35. They actually brought takeaway boxes and the bills as the items were coming off the grill. We joked if we were able... More
