This place has been around for as long as I can remember, and it's because they're great! Food and service are both excellent. If you want good Japanese food in Bristol, this is the place to go.

Stopped by for lunch today. I had Yakima steak and shrimp. It was delicious. My wife had the Jumbo Shrimp which was good also. We ate off the lunch menu and the servings were to much for us to eat.

I've ate here numerous times over the past 10 years and it's always great. I've had the yaki, shrimp, chicken, scallops, and lobster. You can't go wrong with the meat/fish you choose. Whether you dine in or take out the quality is the same.

We have eaten at many Japanese steakhouses around the country and our experience at this one was the absolutely the worst experience. First, the person doing the cooking at our table was just a cook and lacked many of the skills of an experienced chef...More
