I drive 45-50 miles away for this place fried rice! Sadly they closed June 2016 due to owner's wanting to retire and I don't think they found anyone willing to take the restaurant on unfortunately. But I do keep hoping and keep checking their Facebook...More

This was a very popular restaurant for the lunch crowd. Since closed. Too bad. A lot of vacant storefronts across from the Convention Center. Must be really rough making a successful business there. Across the street, Einstein Bagels closed too, as well as, DeepWood Restaurant...More

We had fond memories of dining here a couple years ago, but this visit was disappointing. The waitor was freaked out and rushing so much he was literally flinging things at us. The chef was calmer, but didn't do any of the entertaining knife work...More

Put soy sauce on the lobster, soup was flavorless, salad was obviously not fresh, no ginger salad dressing, and no yum yum sauce. Overall I would not go again. Benihana is about 1000x better.

They offer a large menu and it is prepared on the grill in front of you. The chefs are very entertaining while they cook your dish with juggling knives. Great place to eat

First visit to this Japanese Steak House will be my last. I've been to many other Japanese Steak House restaurants and this is the worst one I've ever been to. The service was good, but the food wasn't. I ordered the hibachi chicken and shrimp....More

Back in the 70's, while travelling for a living, I discovered hibachi style cooking and a particular chain of Japanese Steakhouses of which I have dined in all over the U.S. and Canada. However, right here in my home state of Ohio--in Columbus--is quite possibly...More

One of many trips here. Every meal has been great and very entertaining. Get the scallops and have them put the sauce on the side. Best way to have it.
