This is one of the many hibachi restaurants in the area. This is the best one and even it has problems. First, the phone lady was a real monster about how they don't take late arrivals. The waitress knew what she was doing and was efficient. When the chef came, it was just very basic. This restaurant is just basic.... More

The maki is fresh and delicious! Every time I visit I have a new favorite, this time it's the Yellow Ferrari.

The food at Tsukasa is very good, although my daughter had an issue with her teriyaki chicken. The chef puts on a good show, but the show is always the same it seems. Given the cost (and I do think you get what you pay for here), it's not a place that you would go more than once a year.... More

We only go here on special occasions. Our most recent visit was to celebrate a birthday, so we had a table with 6 teen girls (plus parents and sibling). We had one more person than the table is made for, and they were totally good with accommodating all 9 at one table. Our chef was great with the group of... More

Pretty much every time one of our kids have a birthday, and they get to pick their restaurant, they pick here. It's better than most Japanese Steakhouses. The food is always good although pricey. The 'performance' is always the exact same. I can't see coming here more than twice a year because it's so predictable and the experience is pretty... More

I made a reservation for 30 people to celebrate a joint-birthday dinner with one of my friends and the staff at Tsukasa could not have been more accommodating. We took up 3 grills and they were willing to split 30 checks! The hostesses were beyond patient with our group when we took up a large part of the entryway with... More

We have eaten a lot of Japanese food, as my husband is half Japanese. This is a sad imitation of good cuisine. It had all the right ingredients, but execution lacks finesse that good Japanese food demands. The sashimi was the worst part, the fish was far too thickly cut. We will not be back.

My wife and I recently had dinner here and were very pleased. The gyoza was arguably the best I have ever had, including on my 4 trips to Japan. The sushi was fresh and tasty and the calamari (body meat prepared on the hibachi) was tender and flavorful. A great server completed an excellent evening. Prices were a bit less... More

I've frequented this new spot several times since opening earlier this year and have had the chance to bring several others who have enjoyed it as much as I have. The variety of rolls surpasses other places in the area and the sashimi is of great quality. The atmosphere is slightly more casual than Shakou in Libertyville but still classy... More
