This is my go-to place when I want Hibachi style takeout. They have a wide variety of choices on their menu. I usually get the Hibachi Chicken with no mushrooms and they always offer to sub something else in place of the mushrooms. The portions are large enough that I can make two or three meals from one order. I've... More

Another must try in the Mallard Creek area. I would have to say it is a gem in the hiding. My wife and I attempting to make a decision on our Saturday lunch ended up making a good decision eating here. My wife order the chicken and broccoli which she completely loved. The chicken and vegetables were cooked perfectly. The... More

We eat takeout here about once a month and love it. I always get the teriyaki chicken with sweet carrots and mushrooms. My husband gets the noodles and vegetables. Food is fast, plentiful, and always good. For me, it is always enough for 2 - 3 meals! Never had a problem with staff and we even stayed and ate in... More

I went in for lunch with a co-worker. The place was highly recommended. The menu has an excellent variety of dishes. I tried quite a few of them. I really enjoyed the Tempura sampler. Would definitely order it again. The fried rice really isn't fried rice at all. It is more like seasoned buttered rice. I would not order this... More

I read a review about rude service here, and while there's really nothing to complain about on that end from me, I can totally see it based on my experience. I came in and was looking over the menu, and they have a fairly extensive menu, so I was looking over the options when a guy working the register yelled... More

We ate here on the way to PNC for a concert. It was convenient, quick service and easy to get in and out of. The food was good but I found expensive for the small portion of the meat serving. We ordered Teriyaki Chicken and teriyaki beef. Plenty of rice and veggies- kinda felt skimped on meat. Eat here if... More

Tonight my husband and I took an out of town friend, Sam, to Toyama, and had the most bizarre experience... Sam's order was brought out to her with a side of spring rolls, and without the carrots that usually accompany it. The restaurant was fairly busy and there was a line, so we shrugged it off, and ate one of... More

If I were a local, this spot would be a regular lunch-time haunt or a post-Trader Joe's run dinner on the go. They offer several hibachi-style combos with veggie fried rice and cooked carrots, just choose your meat or go for the vegetarian option. There is also an assortment of tempura options, fried to crispy, golden-brown perfection. The broccoli accompanying... More

The food at Toyama is good and the service is fast. When I call in an order, if I say I'll be there in 5 mins, my food is ready! They are very consistent and I can have all veggies instead of rice and veggies, which works for me. Love the salmon.

Hibachi Food without the show and higher price. What's not to love. Great food here. They are quick and you can customize the vegetables you receive to your liking.
