We went the next evening after visiting Ohjah in Pahrump. They have nothing in common except both are of Japanese cuisine. While portions are bigger in Tokyo but they lack real Japanese flavour, we have a saying about this : food like soap. The guy who was preparing food for us really tried hard, show was good, but grill dissapointed.... More

I spent six years in Japan and I know I'm not there anymore. However, this was a terrible attempt at making Japanese food. I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken (should have been chicken thighs)...more like cube cut pieces of really tough chicken breast with teriyaki sauce poured over the top. The miso soup was watered down…not enough miso paste. The vegetable... More

Just because Will Farrell (photo on the wall to prove it) has been (How? Why?) doesn't mean you need to the follow the funny guy. Ordinary on the outside and the inside. Pretty tired looking. No hint of Japanese Feng Shu. Lunchtime specials were pretty cheap - the chicken was from thigh rather than breast, so at least it tasted... More

Since there's not a lot of restaurants to choose from, we thought we should go here for dinner. Average food. Not a lot in the menu. The cook are awesome though. They show us little tricks while they are on the grill which amuses the diners around him.

4 of us came in for an early dinner and joined another group of 4. Food was good I had the shrimp. The entertainment was fine. Same old corny jokes with a few that were new to me. (Onion volcano with human sacrifice). Good for large groups. Get loaded and have fun!

Great family restaurant, love a Zombie as a starter (or Kiren Beer), all three grand kids, even the three year old, loved the food and the entertainment, as long as he was warned about the volcano!

Watch and be entertained as your meal is prepared by expert cooks. Never disappointed. Great food! Drinks are good too. The filet mignon is tender. The shrimp is wonderful. Meats are sliced to bite size while cooking Even the rice is prepared in front of you. You sit around the large grill. Everyone can see the wonderfully entertaining master cook... More

Visited with our son and family. The reviews were good so we decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately and drink orders came right away. Soon after ordering our Teppan meals, our chef made his entrance. Okay, Moses is not a Japanese Teppan chef. But he had all the moves and was very entertaining. We had a... More

Our hotel told us this was a good place and they were right. In an otherwise sketchy town, this was the best of the 3 dinners we had in town. It is like the Benihana cooking tables like when I was a kid. We had filet and shrimp and it was as good as what we have had elsewhere and... More
