Been to many Japanese style restaurants. Food was good..not great. Expensive for the size portion you where served. Chef very talented in preparation of the different dishes. Kids love the show. That made it worth it

HORRIBLE!! Very small portions, terrible quality, & a young, inexperienced cook made for an awful evening. No flavor in anything we ate. Spent $150 & left hungry. Please do not waste your money or time at this establishment!
