The food is a bit less expensive than the other places I've tried in town, and the quality is equal. Service was prompt. This is my favorite place to go for teppan-yaki. It's in an old Sambo's coffee shop with mid-century architecture, if you like...More

Food was wonderful as always. Service was a little slower than usual but there were 15 of us and we didn't make reservations.

Located just off a very busy road, the exterior appears "run down"and the interior matches. Old decor has not been updated, painted,etc. The proprietors are ethnic Japanese and are very courteous and helpful. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Service is adequate and pleasant.

Happy to report that food was even better than last time, if that is possible. Chef was fun and smiled a lot which added to the over-all experience. This time we let the chef suggest our meal and WOWEE! All I can say is that...More

I've now eaten here twice. The first time was really good and the chef was fantastic. The second time everything was only so-so. I suppose I'll give it another shot the next time I go through Boise.
