It was my first time but I wasn't too impressed right off the bat. The inside decor was outdated and didn't seem really clean at all. The food is overpriced but I suppose you pay for the experience.

If you want to try a fun place this is it. They seat 10 at a table. If you go with 2 expect to share a table. While that may scare some, remember the table is around the grill. Not a traditional table. They take your order then one of their chefs come out and make your meal in front... More

We went for lunch mid week in October, but the wait for a at-table chef was 45 minutes and we decided to skip the wait and eat in the regular dining room. We all had lunch special combination plates and the shrimp, chicken and steak were done well (the steak was medium-rare when we ordered rare), fried rice was delicious... More

Alway love Hitachi. So cool to watch them cook it in front of you. Great chef and service. I had the spicy Hitachi chicken, so good. Wife had the sushi plater and she said it was great. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

After going to this location for over 30 years, I have become so sad that the true, original Japanese culture has been lost! The waiters and management goof around, have no honor, and seem to care less about quality and customer service. The take-out is especially poor, and don't expect to get the same amounts of food when you get... More

We usually come here 3-4 times a month and the food is pretty good. Has a weird taste if you save some for the next day. If you go to the bar area to order food, it's much nicer and quieter but that is where they train new chefs. Other than that, we will continue to be regulars.

I was always excited to try the "original" Japanese steakhouse chain. I was not disappointed, but thought it was a touch overpriced. Everything was well prepared and high quality.

Loved the enthusiasm of the cook preparing the hibachi style food. 15 of us went to this place and the table was a but congested for our group. Food was amazing, drinks was awesome. Love this place and will surely visit on my next Denver trip.
