Japanese Hibachi and Sushi.Large portions, efficient wait staff, chefs with personality. Food was prepared flavorful and delicious. Don't let the location in a strip mall fool you. This place is not pretty on the outside, but once in the door the scene changes dramatically. It is a great place for families.

You have a good chance to ruin your planned event or dining experience if you plan on going to Mei Hibachi Steak House, like we did on Valentine's Day. A few parties were already there upon our arrival, including the five of us, with reservations made. First off, the tables were not ready and all of staff: hostesses, servers, busboys were not cheerful, and did not smile. You don't feel yourself welcome there. Especially our waitress "Annie" who was extra mean and miserable. We didn't get lucky with our chef either. We love hibachi, because it's a mixture of art, cooking and entertainment, so it makes your dining experience an unforgettable one; not this time. Our chef probably was under the weather or had the "winter blues" and simply just cooked our meal. The food was OK, but kind of pricy for this type of place and its location. One more upsetting detail - they stiff patrons with the shrimp appetizer. It is listed on the menu as part of the "hibachi dinner" but nobody got it. Later, I asked one of the hostesses about the missing item, and she was mumbling some nonsense about extra shrimps being added to the main course. Really? Overall, we won't go there anymore and we don't recommend this place to visit.

Ate here with friends on Valentine's Day. They have an extensive menu but we chose to do Hibachi and we were not disapointed. Mei was very warm welcoming and even allowed us to stay to finish our wine long after we had finished our food. Steak and Lobster hibachi was excellent. The accompanying rice, noodles and veg were deliciously tasty. Even the soup and salad dressing were good. We each left with a rose, a nice touch for the holiday. This was my first visit here, but it won't be my last. I'm anxious to try some of the menu items. Everything i saw coming out of the kitchen looked good. Also, clean ladies room, something I judge a restaurant by, Thumbs up for Mei's!
