They are great at Samurai! The food is delicious! Try to get the special fried rice added to your order. I absolutely love their pink sauce. The chefs really try and make it a Hibachi fun filled experience, no matter the age. They make fun shapes with the rice( Mickey, hearts, etc) and not to mention they have a great... More

Long waiting time. They don't accept reservations so all I can suggest is sit by the bar, have a cocktail and something light while you wait. The food itself is good. The chefs interact with little kids and people in general in order to make it entertaining. Cute spot to hold birthday dinners at. I would've given it 5 stars... More

Amazing place. Good culture. Atmosphere energetic. Also good for watching sports and having a great show during commercials. Chefs are very friendly and conversation going. Recommend going here during the weekends. 👍🏻

All was good during my daughter's birthday celebration with six of her best friends until the waitress changed the tip amount on her own. We selected 18% and she apparently changed it to 22%. Didn't break my bank, but I found it very disrespectful and untrusting. I was appalled after my wife viewed the receipt in the car, she noticed... More

We came for the show and the food, and we were not disappointed. We ordered the hibachi dishes. My husband ordered the hibachi supreme, and I had the grilled hibachi steak & chicken combination. The waitress was busy and not very attentive. Over-all the cooking show and food provided a good dining experience for us.

Food is ok but you go there for the show. Your experience depends on who you get as a chef preparing your food. Last time or chef could care less about the show. We had the same experience this time. Our chef barely spent any time doing tricks and spoke to us just to clarify what we ordered. We got... More

I just left this restaurant, and it never changes. The atmosphere is awesome, the chef always puts on a show. The service is good and the food amazing. It's honestly better to bring your own party of 8 because otherwise you will be sat with strangers. However you quickly forget that you are at a table with people you don't... More
