I've been going here over 40 years. Steak chicken Fish.Cooked right at your own table. Bennihanna style but with there own sauces.The egg sauce can be added to all foods. Sounds like not for me it's a must on Chicken or shrimp.Go for the show its a fun time.

Haven't been to a Japanese steakhouse in years. Took our Godson there to celebrate his birthday and thought we would be entertained by the chef with some knife tricks etc. There was none of that. I guess I was in the wrong place and should have been at Benihana where they do that sort of thing? Food was okay but... More

I really like coming to Ron of Japan. It is a very unique restaurant experience, from the decor, to the service, to the food! I always order the jumbo shrimp special, and it is always cooked to perfection. The only downside to this restaurant is that you have to sometimes share a table with strangers if you are a group...

We went here for my daughter's birthday. I could not believe how bad the food was. First of all it is really overpriced. We both ordered chicken and it had a rubbery taste. The chicken fried rice which cost $5.95 because it does not come with your meal, was average. We actually took are leftovers home and put them in... More

We went there for New Year's Eve. It's a nice Japanese-ish asian-theme ambiance. (except when Johnny cash's cover of "Hurt" came on the radio...great song, terrible dinner music.) The server we had was fantastic, which is why I won't give it a one star. He was running around super busy and still managed to be attentive to each table. Kudos... More

Always a fun place with very good food. All the food is prepared right there at your table which is around an open flat grill. The preparation of the food is the entertainment. Take a group or share a table with others. Much more fun if it y9ur own group, usually. The food is surprisingly good and very tasty,

I came here on Saturday night (11/12/16) for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend and another couple. We were directed to the bar to await the other couple so we could be seated together. The drinks at the bar where very good and the bartender was extremely friendly, had this been the end of my visit (like it should), we... More

Been here many times. Quality is consistent; service tempo and attentiveness is not. This time it was well executed. Free parking. Neighborhood upscale restaurant. Family, kid friendly with kids menu. Good for celebrations as there are many at most of my visits. Menu is primarily steak, seafood and chicken combinations. Some vegetarian offerings with tofu or vegetable stir fry. Soup... More

Had another great ROJ experience last night! Loved the extra noodles in the soup (upon request). After eating there for dozens of times, this chef hit it out of the park on the fried rice. He cooked the onions to a crispy texture first and then made the rice and it was GREAT!! Never had it that way and loved... More
