The food is prepared right n front of you, much like at Benihana, so you see exactly what your food looks like before it's cooked. They are very good about cooking gluten-free dishes first so as not to cross-contaminate. The service is good, but can...More

We ordered off the hibachi menu. The chef did a great job both cooking for and entertaining us. The only complaint was the fried rice servings were huge. What was on my plate could have fed four people! But the food was great.

This restaurant is every bit as good as Benihana with a tenth of the crowd (but the word is getting out) The menu is awesome and food delicious.
