Been there several times. Last time inferior service. Tonight was ridiculous finally inquired about appetizers. Told us of course they didn't forget. Came back 10 minutes later to ask what we ordered. Watched other customers come and go while we waited. No more chances, Kitaro. We're done.

There is enough diversity to make anyone happy. The menu has basic, routine sushi to more elaborate types that involve lobster and octopus. Bring a large appetite and experiment with the different flavors!

Didn't think I'd find good Japanese cousine in this area but this place was really good. The Hibachi was really tasty and the show was great. We left with our bellies full and satisfied. Management seemed to have been engaged.

Needs a good scrubbing in the bathroom and dining rooms. The food was okay. Pretty much what I expected. My guy loves it here, but I'm not a huge fan.

The hibachi chefs are funny and entertaining and the food is GREAT! Bring a big appetite. The yum yum sauce is real good and the service was on the spot. My daughter had sushi and she loved it. My wife and I had the steak, chicken and shrimp hibachi for two and could not even finish it. You must try... More

Monday thru Thursday is Half-Priced Sushi from 11am to 3pm. The order comes quickly and with excellent flavor. Staff has always been friendly to me and the establishment is inviting.

This place reignited my love for Japanese food!!! We are here 3 times on a recent trip, each time as good as the first. Delicious, fresh, and their chicken fried rice is perfection. Why is it spelt wrong on trip advisor though? The sign says Kitaro!
